I stumbled across these guys by accident today whilst surfing around my followers on twitter.
The “Lumira Expert Team”
They posted a fun SCN blog titled Happy Thanksgiving – A Visualisation where they show the monthly cost of turkey, per pound, over a six year period.
BUT, I couldn’t help thinking SAP Lumira and SP12 has so much more to offer so I asked for the dataset and had a play myself…. The challenge was set !
Here Goes nothing …..
Get the data in order
From this ..
So much easier to work with now.
Simply if you want to visualise a measure over time the best chart type is a line graph.
Use the basic predictive algorithms and plot the linear regression to look into the future price per pound
Another interesting way of showing the movement of the price per pound over time
Building to the big crescendo with a storyboard but sadly a #FAIL
I don’t want to end on a negative note but sadly SP12 doesn’t have the stability I experienced in SP11 in my honest opinion, HTML5 looks great but maybe needs more hands on testing and real world feedback on usage.
But not to be beaten …
And one more thing …
As you can see from the timestamps on the twitter screenshots, this took me no more than 45 minutes, including writing the blog and all the screenshots. SAP Lumira is really that easy.
