Lumira Desktop 1.17 – A First Look at BEx Query

When I launched Lumira Desktop this morning it prompted me for an update, which I applied:

Next, you will notice some new connections:

I select Connect to SAP Business Warehouse, as I want to connect to a BEx Query.  Previously Lumira only supported connections to BW Universes.

You can select either by role or InfoArea.  In this case I am searching for Solution Manager BEx queries.

The above shows Lumira 1.17 connects to the BEx Query,but you only have access to the Visualize room, not compose, preparation, etc.  I believe this is just the first step towards future functionality.

I can do a line chart an see we had a spike in SolMan tickets October 31st (Halloween)!

I can also look at a pie chart of tickets closed (green) and open (blue)

More to come…
