Dashboards and Analytics with 1,001-5,000 employees
Mar 31 2017

How has it helped my organization?

It's very easy to import data and also to create formulas and so on. In that sense, it's really easy and friendly. Also, it made creating charts, and especially, for example, the... more»

What needs improvement?

It would be valuable if I could more easily share what I do. Right now, where I work, we have SAP BusinessObjects, but there's no way to easily store on a server and share. If we... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

I used SAP Dashboard Designer, and switched because SAP Dashboard Designer is too much work. Every time, if, for example, you have the data through May, and then the June data... more»

What other advice do I have?

It's really user-friendly.

In our experience, it hasn't improved our organization.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

PowerBI is way more capable at a much better price point: $10 per user without all the associated setup costs.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I started with Lumira first, but it’s like Chinese food - it's satisfying at first, but you quickly find yourself... more»

What is most valuable?

I think rapid development, geospatial coding, using it to connect to multiple data sources are all good selling points for it. That's important... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We've streamlined our tool selection. A lot of other groups within the company have used other products, Excel, Power BI, Tableau, and then... more»

What needs improvement?

I think there is room for improvement in connectivity, basic connectivity across data sources or datasets. HANA is a new set that we could... more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's cool that you can download a 30-day trial. I'd like to see that maybe more of an extended trial.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I didn't previously use a different solution but other people in the functional team did. The switch was a result of a corporate IT initiative... more»

SAP BASIS/Technology Lead at a aerospace/defense firm with 10,001+ employees
Mar 31 2017

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are all of the analytical dashboards, which then pull real-time data. We can prepare a summary and, with these dashboards, anybody can build it and they... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We haven't actually done anything. We are just exploring. We are doing a couple of proof of concepts. We haven't realized anything in production. We have something planned. I was... more»

What needs improvement?

One area where I would like to see improvement is the speed. It needs so much resources. I would like to see everything running on the server rather than having it separated... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

In the past, we used some of the other reporting tools, but they all needed a lot of technical expertise. Those are not true self-service tools. You need to have a shadow IT team... more»

Junior SAP Consultant at a tech company with 501-1,000 employees
Mar 31 2017

What is most valuable?

I like the integration, so it's easy to integrate different data sources. Then you can play with the data in the first screen that basically turns it into a table. I like that,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

To be honest, the way I function, I'm not sure it has improved the organization. I work for an SAP third-party vendor, so I got my Lumira license through my company. Basically, we... more»

What needs improvement?

An area of improvement, for sure, is the flexibility of the visualization. Often, my clients want us to see the data in a very specific way, maybe with their color palettes or... more»

What other advice do I have?

My rating is because I see the potential that it has for the business user. I don't think it's quite at the point where it's flexible enough to be a stand-alone data visualization... more»

We’ve created several dashboards that display large sets of data in an insightful and easily digestible way.

Jun 20 2017

What is most valuable?

* Beautiful visualizations * Data cleansing * Slice and dice reports

How has it helped my organization?

This is a tool that gives more power to the user. Now we don't have to wait on our IT teams to create or change reports. Once IT gives us a static list of ingredients (fields), we... more»

What needs improvement?

It would be great to have more ETL capabilities so that the user can do more cleansing/mining on his/her side.

What other advice do I have?

Lumira is a really good data exploration tool. Download the desktop tool and give it a try.

What is most valuable?

Geographic hierarchy and the ability to connect with SAP sources, such as CRM, ERP, and BW. Several data visualization tools do not support this. I am currently a student and what... more»

What needs improvement?

It needs the ability to drill down more. Analyzing data with Lumira at times becomes a bit difficult. Once you know what is where, one can design the visualization. To know what is... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

This is my first solution of this type. It was provided by the university for all students to help them with their studies.

What other advice do I have?

It has a good interface. It is not so good for analysis.
