In this “how-to” I am creating a “days to ship” calculation with the following steps:

1) use a “datediff” calculation to calculate the difference between shipping date and order date

2) change the aggregation to from sum to average

3) create a visualization by country

4) for interactivity, create a storyboard

5) share to Lumira Cloud

First I create a calculated dimension as the dates are “dimensions” in the dataset.

Here is the calculation:

I have to convert it to a measure.

Then I change the aggregation from sum to average:

Here is the visualization of average by country:

Then the storyboard – I include controls for interactivity by continent:

Then share to Lumira Cloud:

Then I logon to Lumira cloud at cloud.saplumira.com to interact with the storyboard:

Lastly, I can “explore” the dataset, taking a look at the “Did you know” area:

You can see more of Lumira at BI 2014 next month in Orlando (snow-free).

    Hi Tammy,

    like the blog. Is there a Howto-Guide out there? I’m looking for a “Wiki” which I can use to introduce others to Lumira.

    Such examples like yours above.

    Hi Tammy,

    thanks for your time. Document or Blogs doesn’t make a huge different, it just depends on the content. I’m sorry, for calling you document a blog, sure, I just had to take a look on top 😐

    Have a nice sunday

    Florian
