This is part 2 of this class. Part 1 I covered (sort of) here Applying What I Learn from Lumira Class – Data Geek Entry with Lessons Learned
Linda Peruzzi lead this second session to “Tell stories using visualizations”, building on movie analysis using a SAP BI Universe to “find hidden trends to tell your story”

Linda reviewed movie box office statistics against a BI universe, merged 2 datasets, using calculated fields, drag and drop visualizations, created an ESRI Map, shared with others and shared on Lumira Server

See Linda’s blog SAP Lumira Virtual Class Webinars – Getting Started with SAP Lumira which covers Figure 2
Towards the end blog, Linda showed this Lumira InfoGraphic which gives you tips on when to use which type of chart:

Figure 3 was shown in the first class, and in the second class, but because the sessions are only 30 minutes there is no time to cover this. Figure 3 (to me) is more about comparisons.

Figure 4 talks about pie charts. I’ve read the WSJ recommendations about pie charts, something which I want to try with Lumira later. Sometimes the “light bulb” recommends stacked bar charts if you use it in Lumira

Figure 5 (to me) is also about comparisons

Figure 6 shows the bubble charts and the heat map. The nice thing about Lumira bubble charts is you can animate them.
What I liked about Figures 3-6 is that it makes me take a step back and think about what I am trying to convey. Often, I try to do what works the fastest. To me that was the best part of this class.
