Overall Satisfaction with SAP Lumira Discovery

Being the self-service BI software, the team in my department strives on having queries that they can create as custom queries to fetch data for analysis and visualizations on the underlying data and sharing the results of those queries in a easy to interpret form with other users. They feel their needs are fulfilled to a very great extent by SAP LD. They are able to actually do a lot of data discovery very easily for lot of applications so that tells in an obvious manner that it can be integrated with lot of other systems. The on-prem solutions/installation makes it another factor in favor of SAP LD as a great tool.
  • Data discovery and integration with applications.
  • Ability to generate visual reports with meaningful business insights.
  • Integration with Microsoft office.
  • Integration with SAP Cloud platform and BI tools like Tableau.
  • Amazing mobile interface with responsive UI experience.
  • Ability to generate visual dashboards with charts and maps.
  • The loading statuses and logs of integrated apps like SAP design studio - helps the users know which application is taking the time or blocked.
  • Consistent formatting tabs for charts and other visual dashboard options.
  • Bookmarking for which scripts have to be used still.
The way it works with other SAP apps is a great factor which tilts the pointer in favor of SAP LD. By that I mean ability to import data from places like SAP HANA, BW, BO Universe, etc. provides a flexible way to cleanup and prepare data for analysis easily and quickly. The security features also help promote data governance and then it adds data integrity and finally it is safe to say that data which is cleaned up and prepped is one single source of truth.
Various formatting options like charts, maps enhancements, custom query for data fetching, ability to import data easily from various non-SAP resources, user friendly UI, ease of integration with SAP HANA, BW, Microsoft Office. friendly architecture and design which allows the scope of customization for various teams according to their needs. Fast data manipulation capabilities as it is able to make use of SAP HANA's computation abilities.
Why I rate SAP LD so highly is that it is a very user-friendly tool which allows us to integrate with other SAP apps and also with Microsoft Office. Importing and exporting data and reports respectively is very easy. It also has a single sign-on feature with very secure interface thus having your data secure at all the times.
When working with the SAP ecosystem of apps, SAP LD is one of the best BI tools to go with. For analytics be it with cloud or mobile apps, it is really well suited. Its interface is most likely relatable with other popular BI tools like Tableau, Microsoft BI. Thus people switching from other BI apps for SAP LD to enjoy the interoperability and ease of working with SAP apps are in for a treat.
