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.

Nice and Easy Visuals

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

SAP Lumira is a fantastic software that is easy to use as well.

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.

SAP BO Lumira Reporting tool

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

Adds life to messy and confusing large set of numbers

The pricing and economic feasibility makes it a useful tool

Pros

The ability to interpret, display and organize large data sets into neatly and precise charts/graphs/tables which help me make a better analysis of data and hence enable me to make much more well thought out prudent business decisions.

Sap lumira allows me to physically visualize information and notice business trends.

Cons

Requires supervised training to adapt to and learn which takes up effort

Still needs more user friendly User Interface.

Great tool for visualizing data

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.

Simple out of the box BI

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')

Best Data Visualization Software

Allows me to take a large amount of data, organize it and display it in a visually appealing way where the data is much easier to comprehend, analyze and make decisions based of such as how much of the advertising budget to allocate towards a specific advertising medium, and see where more our potential market is clustered geographically.

Pros

This software takes large amounts of messy data, organizes it, and shows them into charts and graphs thus visually mapping out the data in ways that make it easier to analyze data and make informed decisions.

Cons

Great App, only if it was available on Mac software.
