Using Mobile BI With SAP Lumira Cloud Against SAP ERP
In my previous document SAP Lumira: Getting Familiar Freehand SQL Against SAP ERP – then to iPad I showed how to do freehand SQL against your SAP ERP system on the iPad.
This time, I am accessing Lumira Cloud against Mobile BI 5.0. What are the benefits? The benefits are sharing, annotating, and e-mailing using Mobile BI 5 on the iPad.
I created Figure 1 “ad hoc” in the cloud, meaning I dragged and dropped the measures and attributes over.
I can use the Analyze tab to change it do a different type of chart, text, etc.
Figure 3 shows I am now enabling the Mobile BI features and toolbar.
So now I can “share”, e-mail, annotate, etc.
Figure 4 shows I can share with someone and the options are the individual can view it on the Lumira cloud or edit the view.
A great feature shown in Figure 5 is being able to circle, annotate and write in some text – why is there a spike in the data?
Figure 6 shows you can send an e-mail with your annotations
Figure 7 shows how it looks in e-mail.
I was able to do all of this without opening a book, manual or looking at the SAP help. This is not typical for me so I think it says a great deal as to ease of use.
