Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

Since I am involved with academia at a large research university, SAP Lumira turned out to be an excellent platform for providing visual insights to generic Excel data. In fact, we are encouraging our students to utilize this software for extracting relevant information from large sets of data.
  • This software is absolutely amazing because it is very easy to navigate, and the results are quite informative as they provide visual insights to generic databases.
  • I used it to create multiple visual aids depicting the countries of origin of our graduate students, which helped us evaluate the effectiveness of international recruiting efforts.
  • Finally, I utilized Lumira to prepare informative visual deliverable materials in order to illustrate the grade distribution among minority students.
  • I wish the ZIP code mapping was incorporated in Lumira.
It looks like Lumira is inferior in terms of utilizing ZIP mapping.
As an average academia user, I find Lumira extremely helpful for preparing valuable visual arguments as persuasive evidence in support of business decisions. I can also see how it could be beneficial for small and medium-sized business entities in assessing their results and attainment of budgeting objectives.
