    Pros

    We used SAP for accounting and reporting, but the reports were hard to interpret. Even with very little background with these types of software, I was able to turn reports into easy-to-read dashboard and other graphics.

    Cons

    There is a bit of a learning curve for this powerful tool. Without a background or training you will be left to your own devices on how to properly present the information you want.

    Connectivity and look and feel.

    Pros

    It is easy to create stories and create new data models. It is possible to create hierarchies and it has a great look and feel.

    Cons

    In the last version, you were able to publish into the cloud. Now it is not available anymore.

    Visualizing and creating reports using SAP data.

    Pros

    Easy to load the data and clean up the data within the tool. Produces nice advanced visuals for reports that can be refreshed by any user. Good tool to work with SAP data directly.

    Cons

    The tool Does require training. It is rather pricey and offers limited visual capabilities compared to other analytical tools.

    Lumira is a powerful visualization tool. It could be even more powerful if it had excel-like pivot table drill down features. Currently it requires some preparation work.

    SAP Lumira came out of SAP Business Explorer, the company's previous, but more basic, self-service data visualization tool for functional business users. My Analysts using SAP Lumira can alter data structures and correlations in whatever way they want, without the help of their IT department, then push the data back into the system so it can then be consumed by more casual users in tools like Business Explorer. One of the perfect tool to be used along with SAP HANA. Lot user-friendly for expanding the age reports involved in monthly reviews

    Pros

    SAP Lumira can either be used in conjunction with the SAP HANA in-memory platform or without.

    Cons

    Educations is from SAP needed

    Lumira is a good addition to the BI landscape. I found it very easy to work with and understand, and fairly priced. You can hook up some data sources and be up and running in very little time (as long as your source data is good of course!). It is mostly a front end tool. Don't expect to do too much complicated crunching of multiple data sets...for that other tools such as MS PowerPivots & Power BI are probably better - but for a very good, usable, BI solution to sit on top of some ready made data sets, Lumira is an excellent choice.

    Pros

    Easy to understand
    Easy to get started with
    Easy to scale
    Fairly priced

    Cons

    Some of the output formats are bit rigid
    Limited functionality to manipulate data before reporting (ie the 'transform layer')

    The most positive aspect is that it's easy to install and get started, as well as easy use various data sources. However I do miss ver much the functionality of scheduling/broadcasting reports, resulting in that I have to to that manually, resulting in that in many cases I do not use Lumira for that reason.

    Pros

    Easy to install and get started. Ability to use different kinds of data sources easily.

    Cons

    The absence of broadcasting functionality.

    I was the 1st member of my team to install Lumira 1.30 desktop and connect to HANA, MS SQL and Oracle databases. We are currently installing Lumira 1.31 on Linux Server for Enterprise sharing.

    Pros

    Seemless "Prepare", "Visualize" and "Compose" functionality. Including linking files, filtering and multiple charting options. Like the hierarchy features for geographic and date drilling. Also, support for numerous data sources

    Cons

    formatting, sizing and scheduling refreshes

    when working with Lumira, we noticed not that many charts available to do any statical analysis. for example No Control charts, Histogram, Gantt chart, Highlight Table. Hope Lumira can incorporate some of these feature in later versions.

    We have got lumira for a small poc. The product itself is very good up to par with many of its rivals. The only issue we have is with the licencing complexity.

    Pros
