Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

I used it in project for a non-profit in Raleigh, North Carolina. I used the product to geographically visualize the current need the non-profit was serving and used a model to visualize the estimated need. I also used various bar charts and other graphs for a presentation to the managers.
  • Data source integration was really easy, it populated the data columns as the appropriate fields.
  • Drag and drop functionality made it really easy to visualize data many ways.
  • Storyboard was a nice feature to compile all of the visualizations into an easily presentable format.
  • The geographic maps could be a little more exact. It would be nice to overlay counties within a state.
  • There could be better graphics to embed into the bar charts.
  • Making the storyboard link to PowerPoint would be awesome.
I found SAP Lumira first, but actually have begun to use Tableau more. SAP stacks up pretty well against Tableau, but it feels just a step behind in most areas.
It's a good all around business software. It would be well suited for beginner to intermediate experience with visualization software.
