Getting Familiar with Lumira SP14 – Latest Release

For the first time, I was prompted to install the update to Lumira – this hasn’t happened before, as usually I’ve been downloading the latest version from the site.  This is a welcome change.  Usually SMP users are first to update, not those who purchased it elsewhere.

Next, you can print the visualizations, as mentioned in  Christina Obry’s blog Publishing of SAP Lumira stories to SAP Lumira Cloud

Very nice!

I created a storyboard, and learned last week at the Lumira Hangout – What’s Coming in SP14 I could publish the story board to the cloud and Christina shows this in her blog as well.

I struggled a little, but then once I selected the visualization/story board I saw the Publish to Lumira Cloud.

Because the dataset is there, I am prompted to Overwrite.

My storyboard is now on the Lumira Cloud.

This is how my storyboard appears on the Cloud:

Exploring Datasets to the Cloud

I published this dataset to the cloud, and even though Christina’s blogs mention this, I was amazed to see the automatic “visual discoveries” as proposed by Lumira Cloud:

I clicked the “Explore” option on Lumira Cloud, and now it gives a “BusinessObjects Explorer”-like view:

More to come!

      And the good news is that in SP14, PA is resynched with Lumira:

      so you get all the goodies from Lumira (custom HTML5 visualizations, storyboards, share visualizations to Cloud etc. also nin PA). The only drawback is that you still can't share predictive charts (e.g. clustering charts, decistion trees etc.) to Lumira Cloud - I hope that will come in the future.

      I noticed that the charts and transitions are much more fluid/animated.  Nice touch.

      Sneha - I don't know about the Personal Edition; I only downloaded the Standard one.

      Hopefully someone from the SAP Lumira Expert team can respond cc - Irshaad Bijan Adatia

      Hello Antoine - I just tried downloading a 32 bit version from saplumira.com and it is still on SP13 - please let us know when this is updated.

      Thank you

      Sneha,

      It takes up to 48 hours for all the servers to propagate the new release. (Which translates into about 4 days to include all the links globally.)
      If you're downloading from saplumira.com it should work globally by the end of the day tomorrow.

      Try again today, and let me know if it's still an issue!

      I will try to install SP14 and will let you know if there would be any issue.

      Hi Bijan,

      I tried downloading SAP Lumira Personal edition again but it is still pointing to SP13.
      I downloaded from following website -

      Hey Sneha,

      Just tested the link myself, and it is pointing to SP14.

      Let's troubleshoot this further:

      When you're downloading, are you choosing to "Save" or "Run" the file?

      Try to "Save" the file in a location where you haven't downloaded to previously, and then find that file in explorer and run it by double-clicking on it.

      What about the auto-updater directly in Lumira?

      Thanks for your patience!

      Thanks Bijan.

      Earlier, I was saving the installable file and when cliked its properties, it said SP13, nnot sure if thats the right way.

      But today, i used auto-updater from Lumira and it worked. 🙂

      Regards,

      Sneha,

      That was going to be the next suggestion.
      SAP Lumira has the auto-update feature and it's working just dandy!

      Now that you've got SP14, we can expect a great new analysis from you, I'm sure?!

      Take care,

      Thanks Bijan 🙂

      Hi Tammy,

      do you know if he two new features of Lumira Cloud related to Content discovery (Visual discoveries, Did you know) also are going to be included in the desktop version?

      Will there always be different fuctionality in these versions or are they going to be merged?

      Best regards,

      Jarle

      Not in this release - SP14 - and someone from SAP will need to respond to your latter question. You may want to open a separate discussion the Lumira space to ask this question.

      The "Visual Discoveries" are my favourite new feature in the Cloud. Very easy to get started discovering your data right away.
