SAP Lumira (Named-user basis) License - Enterprise Support. Data Exploration for the Operating Department ... SAP Lumira guides the user along the path towards this aim in four
steps: data import, data enrichment, visualization and data analysis.
The results can then be shared with other users.
SAP Lumira is an addition to the SAP product portfolio in the area of data exploration and visualization. With its ease of use and uncluttered user interface, SAP Lumira is aimed directly at end-users. Everything is geared towards the aim of allowing diverse data to be visualized and large data volumes to be analyzed in order to informed decision-making.
Step 1: Data Import
Before visualization or analysis can be performed, the data needs to be uploaded to SAP Lumira in a first step.
The data can come from a variety of sources: from local Excel or text files to SQL databases to SAP HANA, from which data is retrieved directly. Since very recently, data can also be retrieved through direct access to the SAP Business Warehouse, making use of BEx Queries as well as InfoProviders.
Step 2: Data Preparation and Data Enrichment
Once the data has been imported into SAP Lumira, the next step involves the appropriate preparation of the data. Here, end users can create additional measures (key figures) and characteristics of their own based on the data from the data sources. The tool incorporates a suitable editor for this purpose, which can be used to perform simple manipulations and calculations.
Step 3: Visualization
The prepared data can then be visualized in a third step. There are many different forms of visualization available (charts, maps, tables). Using an SDK, these can be modified or complemented by user-specific visualization types.
No doubt, the outstanding visualization feature of SAP Lumira is the display of data in geographic distribution. It has never been easier to analyze data geographically using an SAP tool.
The characteristics (e.g. country) and measures to be displayed are placed onto the map via drag & drop and the corresponding map is generated at run-time.
Step 4: Generate Report
Once different visualizations have been created, these can be combined into a so-called ‘Story(board)’. There are a number of different templates available to allow the data to be analyzed via the visualizations.
These Storyboards allow corresponding analyses to be performed in the final step, or they can serve as static reports, which can then be shared within the department or made available more widely via the BI Platform.
