Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Lumira

Currently I am working as SAP Functional Consultant and as a part of my job role I do implementation of SAP Lumira at our client location.
  • First advantage is that you can install SQL Drivers and further connect SQL with Lumira. This will help to use SQL query in order to import data into Lumira Directly.
  • Advance Graphs are readily available for user, which can be used easily with a handsome knowledge of Statistics.
  • You can also create different visualization and altogether put them along with each other. This will be created as a Story in Lumira which becomes a Presentation for the user.
  • SAP Lumira provides a stage to connect to your SQL database. Customers have frequently asked us a question that why SQL query already saved in SAP Product such SAP B1 is not available in Lumira to be selected. That means customer wants to link SQL saved queries of SAP B1 with Lumira, but not manually to be copied and paste.
  • Also the queries created and used in Lumira don't get saved, not if the user wants to run the same query for another time period. He needs to again do manual copy paste and create the same story, but cannot update the saved one.
  • Also users look for some pre-designed examples readily available with Lumira Installation for their own reference.
  • Microsoft Excel
In India, users are already using this product and have got adapted to it. It's tough because it is not as beneficial as Lumira, but to bring a change in an Indian company is hard to implement.
  • It doesn't have so much impact on company ROI as our customer have received free license for Lumira under Promotional Scheme.
It's quite useful for Internal reporting, Management reporting and Head office Reporting.
