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.
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:

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.
