Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

When I used it, it was only being used by a department, and I was only a user for a brief period of time. We used it mainly as a tracking and analytics tool. After gathering data using Lumira, we then built a strategy around the data we collected from it. This tool helped us build charts and graphs based off of the data we collected in real time. This tool was useful in helping us spot trends and back up our ideas for how to move forward or allowed us to quickly change our strategy if needed.
  • Provides real time data analytics.
  • Provides visuals on trends and analytical data and transforms it into a more easily readable and digestible format.
  • Relatively easy to use and understand.
  • When I used it, it was still relatively new to both myself and my department. It was very glitchy at the start and would have trouble running occasionally.
  • As I said it was pretty new when I started using it and was slightly buggy. This was around 1-2 years ago.
This product was just easier to use in general. I didn't have to spend time hunting for data or waste time setting up a visualization like I have had to do with other products I have used in the past. As to why we chose it, that decision was not up to me, that decision was made at a higher level.
Lumira would be helpful to any company really. Every company relies on data to drive their decisions or back up their point of view in a presentation, this is speaking quite generally of course. I however, see it as being the most useful to any company on the larger side of the corporate scale or any smaller company that uses data heavily, to make business decisions. It was a very useful tool to help those of us that need a visual representation of what the data is portraying. This tool was also very helpful in tracking user trends for us as well as allowed us to quickly and easily identify our top selling products and any changes in demand. If we noticed a change in demand, we could quickly look into what caused that change and adjust our strategy accordingly.
