Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

Our global organization is moving towards a much more a self service BI oriented model and environment. Our business is ever changing rapidly and needs to keep up with the market reality. Many new segments or pockets of opportunities need to be tracked and measured by the business. They often need to merge internal and external data. Lumira has been evaluated in that scope.
  • the learning curve is quite low as it follows the same look and feel as other SAP products
  • creating new data sets is done easily
  • connecting to SAP BW
  • Working with SAP BW queries where downloading the information requires too much memory
  • Visualizing the data should come quicker, not having to go through the data prep.
  • Building dashboards and visualizations should be easier and quicker with less steps
Not as easy to quickly connect to data sets and create and share visualizations with others. Lumira has other strengths in which it allows to push back data or data schema you've created back to HANA. Also, SAP roadmap to integrate it with Design Studio will allow it to have a bigger and broader reach for local and global dashboarding capabilities and data visualization.
Lumira is well suited for scenarios where you need to connect to BW data and add some new data and push it back to a HANA table to be then consumed for either a POC or limited group of people. It's not as well suited for quick and easy visualizations to share and gain insights.
