Figure 3 is a new slide to me; I didn’t take too many notes.  Clarissa did mention the new acronym “HBA” or “HANA-based Analytics”.

What is Lumira?

    Thanks for the write up Tammy. I was a bit confused about the difference between BI On Demand and Lumira so this is a useful post.

        Hi Tammy,

        When you upload the picture into sdn.sap check whether picture is store in the format of PNP because it’s support that format only. Kindly check your picture format.

    Thanks for this Tammy.

    It would be nice to see an update here on the evolving changes of Lumira and how Explorer compares, compliments Lumira. We are involved with APJ’s Lumira Design Council and very successful users of Explorer’s self-service functionality for desktop and mobile.

    Kind regards

      Your response (as it’s not showing up properly).

      Lester – we appreciate you being on the Design Council, perhaps going through them with this request would be the best method for you.

      Also, seeing as how you have been very successful users of Explorer, perhaps a comparison from your point-of-view would be extremely helpful (just be sure to make a new post with that).

        We’re recording some demo’s of our journey with Explorer at the moment and a
        demo of where we see Explorer overlapping with the Lumira solution. I’ll need
        to work out how to upload video clips to SCN if it’s possible and link it back
        to my profile with a URL link.

         

        Open to any suggestions on how to upload!

        Kind regards

          HI Lester

          Would love to see your perspective and learn about your journey. Say, what do you think of an hour session to walk us through your experience and show us your demo over a conference call? I would have my SAP BI product management colleagues and myself on the call. Please let me know if you are interested 🙂

      Important thing to note here is that SAP Lumira in this context and slides specifically refer to SAP Lumira desktop as of last year, not Lumira solution as a whole, which now has desktop, server, cloud and mobile parts.

          Lester, if you are looking for more updates on the solution as a whole, I would highly recommend looking at newer documents, here are a few:

          You should frequent the home page of the Lumira community on the SCN – the homepage is constantly updated with the most-up-to-date information.
