SAP Lumira Cloud and Lumira Server Webcast Updates Part 1

SAP’s Ashish Morzaria presented this this week.  The usual disclaimer applies that things in the future are subject to change.

Now on to the webcast notes:


Figure 1: Source: SAP

Figure 1 shows the “Design” “Analyze” “Visualize” and “Share” compartments.


Figure 2: Source: SAP

Lumira Server is on the HANA appliance

This is a way to share and consume using speed and scalability


Figure 3: Source: SAP

There is no data acquisition piece on the Lumira server, as it is dealing with HANA system

It is for more of an enterprise environment

Browser doesn’t have data acquisition

Figure 5 depicts how Lumira Server is used to publish and share stories.


Figure 6: Source: SAP

Lumira Cloud is deployed on a real world class data center

HANA Cloud Integration is a solution (coming soon) that is secure in the cloud and you can get on a subscription basis – on premise agent and shuttle data to HANA cloud platform

It is a SaaS offering.

Figure 7 shows Lumira Server can be on-premise, HEC, AWS

Lumira Cloud is deployed on the HANA Cloud platform.


Figure 8: Source: SAP

The future is with HANA Cloud Integration which is the ETL like on premise

Lumira has a perpetual license and is licensed in a traditional way

Lumira Server  – more of an on premise traditional architecture that IT can run


Figure 9: Source: SAP

Figure 9 shows two different portals and two different launchpads

This is not the best way

To be workable, it requires security synchronization, two admin consoles


Figure 10: Source: SAP

Figure 10 shows the planned BI 4.1 SP3 with an add on to BI4 system

It allows BI4 to work with HANA appliance

The user is not dealing with HANA appliance any more

It will use CMC – not creating two different stacks

It has the ability to add Lumira to an existing environment


Figure 11: Source: SAP

SAP Lumira version 1.16 will have integration with the BI platform

Lumira Server add-on “works the magic”

It will have a publish to BI4 button

The users always connects to BI4


Figure 12: Source: SAP

Figure 12 shows this functionality is coming soon

On the left you see Lumira stories appear as new content types

Open up on the right – see it in Launchpad experience
