Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

I consulted for a company that was having serious network troubles which were directly impacting their production process. I was asked to come in and aid their team in identifying the root cause and then to put a plan in place to rectify the problem. When I arrived on site, they had virtually no visibility into what was going on in their network. After working with their team to compile enough data to identify the problem, Lumira allowed us to easily illustrate the problems to their management without losing them in confusing network speak. It allowed me to convey a very complex and confusing problem in a way that could be digested by people outside my field.
  • Allows simple creation of data visualizations without requiring the assistance of a DBA or a coder.
  • Can easily pull data from multiple sources.
  • Takes almost no time to learn, very intuitive.
  • The primary interface feels cluttered, there is so much data and so many options it can appear daunting to a new user.
I used SAP BusinessObjects Lumira while consulting with a company that had existing licenses. While I'm not normally a big SAP fan, I was blown away by this product.
I find Lumira to be a fantastic piece of software for easy data visualization, however as the data is static its use cases will be rather limited for my field. As a tool to create visualizations for a presentation, or emailed statements it is fantastic. However if it was possible to provide dynamically updated data this would become a must have.
