Today I learned through social media that the SAP Lumira Expert team was holding a Google hangout with SAP’s Mani Srinivasan to cover what is new in Lumira SP14
First, I didn’t realize they hold these hangouts weekly. It was a late start too and I was wondering about my technical skills with Google but fortunately things got going.
They hold weekly hangouts every Wednesday at 2:00 pm Eastern. Next week will be the last Google hangout for the year, they said.
Before getting to what is new in SP14, they demonstrated an Excel date formatting tip. You can’t have just month and year – you need the day in there. They showed how to concatenate the day in Lumira and then you can use the date.
Then they questioned Mani.
Q: How did Lumira get started? Why do you need Lumira?
A: It is more for empowering the business. It will evolve in upcoming months & quarters
Q: What is the schedule for releases? Why so many SP’s?
A: Releasing so many SP’s as they are innovating at a rapid pace; deliver fast
SP14 is planned for December/end of year
Q: When can we expect new release?
A: Going through validation phases – SP14 before end of year
Mani displayed the above slide on the hangout and discussed the following SP14 Improvements:
- interact with chart canvas area
- Ability to create stories using slide show option
- Template options to create story boards
- Improve filtering option to filter datasets
- Chart gallery improvements
- Most important – ability to share datasets and stories with Lumira Cloud
The above is a screenshot of the SP14 demo during the Google Hangout, showing you can change the order of visualizations.
Question from Andrew Fox:
Q: When do you see the ability to review a list of the data enrichments that have been made will be available?
A: looking at doing it in an easier format – can’t say the time frame
Did I miss anything? I made this a document so it can be edited.
