The perfect fit for business analysts looking for a simple, self-service software to make analytics

At the beginning, SAP Lumira was a bit "half-baked", some core features were missing and that's why it did not had a good start in terms of adoption. But the dev teams have done a lot to improve the product both in terms of performance and functionalities. Now the product can perfectly compete with Tableau or so. I do even think that the tool is better than Tableau or Power BI for people looking for a SIMPLE, self-service BI tool, because it is way easier to use. Less options, but straight to the point for meaningful analysis report creation in no time.

Pros

The ease of use. Connecting to different data sources is easy, and plotting these data on charts is done by one drag and drop. You can adjust the component of your reports by freely resizing them, the UI is simple and clear to understand. The possibility to share the reports to the SAP BI ecosystem, that mostly serves all the collaborators of a company, is also a big plus.

Cons

The performance might be a bit "meh" if your laptop is not new and powerful enough. Laptop from 2014, old core and 4Go of RAM might suffer a bit, especially if you try to handle hundreds of thousands of data.

Used for years, still learning

SAP has been used by our company for years, so we don’t have much experience with other systems. I will say though it’s a good central repository for information.

Pros

If you know the commands, it’s an easy to navigate system. I appreciate the amount of things you can do in one system including forecasting sales, resource planning and scheduling.

Cons

There are so many commands and when an error arises in the system, it’s hard to know what the error is for and how to resolve.

Visualization tool from SAP leavening HANA and Business Objects

I have been working on Business Objects since many years and past 2 years we started using Lumira as an additional visualization tool for our clients. Even though we have business Objects Web Intelligence tool, we need one such visualization tool, to quickly analyze the data and find the insights in the data, unlike Enterprise reporting. Also, if the client is already using BO from years, it easy to fit this visualization tool rather than others like Tableau.

Pros

SAP Lumira is very good visualization tool, allowing to connect to SAP HANA, SAP BW, Universe and other sources. It have lot of automation build into, to connect with sources, prepare the data and quickly prepare the different types of visuals. It has lot of built in functions which makes calculation very easy but at the same time, representation of the information into the charts, graphs and maps makes it more intuitive. SAP Lumira is a tool which can mastered easily and start using it day one. It is like plug and play. It has dashboard to put the visuals.

Cons

Marking has to be increased to compete with Tableau. The look & feel is not as good as Tableau so there is a room for improvement. Tableau to can connect to literally everything but Lumira has limitation. Also, compatibility between BO other reporting tools and Lumira has to be increased further.

Good For Data Visulisation

Once You understand the functionality its good to use. But you need to spend hours to learn it. Within same license cost other tools are available in the market.

Pros

Good tool for decision making. Organizes the data well then put into the charts graphs. Good tool to analyze the data quickly. License price is not that high. It can be easily collaborated with SAP data. Can be used well to forecast.

Cons

Need to spend hours to understand the functionality. Still can have improved dashboards. Need to be more user friendly.Not available for MAC users.
