Trying out SAP Lumira Edge on iPad

So for fun, I thought I would try this using Safari – right now Lumira Edge is not supported with Mobile BI.

I get my SAP Lumira Edge link and enter that on Safari on my iPad2:

I see message that my browser may not be supported and optimized; I haven’t checked the Product Availability Matrix yet – so I forge on ahead.

I’m logged on but can I view a story?

As Figure 3 shows, I can successfully see the Lumira Story on Lumira Edge on the iPad, even if it may not be officially supported (I haven’t checked)

Figure 4 shows an SAP-supplied sample file, one that can be viewed on Lumira Edge on the iPad.  I click the link “click to explore”:

Figure 5 shows the results of filtering on the Lumira Edge story on the iPad – no issues so far.

Figure 6 shows the possibility of creating a new story on the iPad using Lumira Edge.

But what about Mobile BI?  Mobile BI brings a consistent interface to your BI front-end tools on the mobile device.

So I tried similar visualizations using Lumira Cloud on Mobile BI:

You can see the top menu in Figure 7 is coming from the Mobile BI app, allowing the end user to annotate the visualization.

Figure 8 shows an annotation on the iPad.

      Hi Tammy,

      are you actually saying that we can acces Lumira Team Server from an ipad?

      Thanks,

      René

      Rene - I just used the URL - I didn't go through Mobile BI

      Using the URL should work on the iPad

      Hi Tammy,

      URL link does not work from my IPAD ... did you apply any specific settings on your ipad to connect to the URL?

      Thanks,

      René

      No, I didn't apply any specific settings.  Please note this was an early version of Team Server and I was using a trial license; I don't have a Team Server where I could try this now.
