Lumira Lowdown at SAP TechEd
At session EA162 and at ASUG pre-conference session last week SAP’s Ingo Hilgefort provided exercises to use Lumira against a HANA offline model and after running through some visualizations, the dataset was published to Explorer.
I don’t recall that many questions happening with the exercises themselves, but more about Lumira licensing. For sure that is something to take up with the account executive as I get lost between BI suite license, enterprise suite license and the a la carte model. Be sure to sign up for EA162 SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4 with SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse as last week’s sessions were completely full prior to the event and the wait list was long. For Friday’s session, the door attendant told me that people were standing in line to be wait-listed for an HOUR.
For EA160, which is Using SAP Lumira with SAP NetWeaver BW on SAP HANA, you get to create a query snapshot out of BW on HANA and use that in Lumira. Then you start creating visualizations and manipulating data. You also learn all about trellis charts and share your dataset as well. Be sure to sign up today for this session as it was held last week and both sessions were at completely full registration and the last session had at least 30 people wait-listed.

It was announced in the keynote that there is a new site for Lumira – go to saplumira.com. The keynote
said too there are SDK’s coming for both Lumira and SAP Design Studio. Regarding the new site, there is an area of tutorials to look at http://www.saplumira.com/lumira-learn-tutorials.php
Additional sessions to catch on Lumira next week at SAP TechEd Amsterdam:

Also, if you cannot get a laptop at the hands-on, in Las Vegas they allow you to sit at the back of the room, which is helpful for the lecture part, but also if the instructor is not busy you can ask him/her questions; it is almost like instant-networking.
