BI 2014 Keynote – World Premiere of Infographics with Lumira

SAP’s Stephane LeCam provided this presentation on Lumira.  SAP has “demonstrated a commitment for product”.  At BI 2014 this was the first time SAP presented this functionality, citing this to be the “world premiere”.


You can have the worst sales numbers on the planet, visualize any way you want still not good, but you need to know ” where the puck is headed”.

      Maybe we could ask Stephane to assist in a formal capacity?  these grabbed images arent' very impactful for such an interesting announcement. Strange 'puck is headed' statement too, is that a quote?

      Hi Tammy,

      i can confirm, colleagues from SAP will be contacting you to improve this article, as this feature hasn't been launched officially yet.

      Regards,

      Play "where the puck is headed" is from Wayne Gretzky, only the greatest hockey player on the planet 🙂
