Lumira Desktop 1.17 – New Influencer, Visualization Features

We saw demos of Lumira Desktop 1.17 at ASUG Annual Conference a few weeks ago.  Now that 1.17 is generally available, it is nice to try out some of the features myself.


First the visualization tiles have moved from the far right to the left; I like this because if you are dragging and dropping measures and dimensions it is closer to drag the items.


Similar to Lumira Cloud, if you click the lightbulb icon you can see Related Visualizations.  You don’t have to “think”.


I selected measure “All time rank” and Lumira will suggest what “influences” that.

I select “Top Influencers of All time rank” and the following visualization appears:


Of course, wins plays a role in all time rank, goals, points, attended, etc.

I select “wins” to see the correlated variables:


Of course this is a simple example, so I’m sure there are more use cases for this type of functionality.


More information correlating to average points when that bar is selected.


Now you see all the share options too.

The Influencer analysis feature is interesting, and it will be interesting to see how it gets used.

      Hi Pauline - my understanding is that Lumira is using a feature from the SAP Predictive Analytics tool - see Ashish's blog here with more information: Analyzing Flight Cancellations With SAP Lumira
