Crowd Source Testing Public Storyboards
Christina Obry announced last week Public Embedding of SAP Lumira Storyboards is possible. First, SAP’s Steve Paxian shared a storyboard with me. Then I tried sharing the same sap.com/LearnBI storyboard public visualization and received some feedback from James Rapp
@tpowlas it works fine for me but doesn’t look so hot on my iPhone

Right now Lumira Cloud is not sized for the iPhone. Since I carry my iPhone way more than I do my iPad hopefully this will come soon.
Still, it is nice to interact with storyboard I didn’t create and see that there was a big jump in January 2014 on the number of views for Analysis and BI/BW tutorials:
I found if I shared the storyboard with a filter on it, I can’t filter it again.
On this when I shared the public visualization I already had it filtered on year 2008. If I try any other year, I get an “unknown error”. So it makes sense when sharing public visualizations to not have any filters on the storyboard.
Here is a word cloud showing speakers (pulled from text from Data Services) for BI2014 next week:
The storyboards above are all public so feel free to click. Note this will not work on all browsers, as I just returned from volunteering from the library (uses IE8) and it won’t work there.
Today analyst Fredrik Tunvall, Ovum, made this interesting observation:
After trying Qlik.Next and @LookerData in the last couple of weeks I’m increasingly convinced web-based #BI will be the way forward. #html5

Could a tool like Lumira Cloud fit this? It is web-based, and it is nice to have updates like Christina mentioned last week without waiting for an installed update.
BI 2014 – Featured Products and Speakers using Lumira and Data Services
Jump Start ASUG Annual Conference SAPPHIRE with a Pre-Conference Session – Back and Better than Ever
On the other hand, Lumira Server storyboards embedded within HANA UIS size quite well on iPhone ... have a look at this demo I mocked up ... the widget structure gives a lot of flexibility in design. I'm planning to blog about this soon.
Nice - I will have to try that
Thank you for sharing
