Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

It is not being used at all. I evaluated it for purchase but it is not nearly as good as Tableau or even PowerBI. I found it very frustrating and useless. Seems like the goal is to focus on users with HANA - which we don't have.
  • Connections to BusinessObjects Universes
  • Mapping/plotting data was poor at best
  • Number of rows was too small for the analysis
  • Publishing required more licenses (I guess if you have a lot of budget to might like it).
In all cases, except data connectivity, Lumira is worse in my opinion.
Connecting to a BusinessObjects Universe. Makes it easier to avoid SQL coding for the less adept users
