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?


Figure 3

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

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

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


Figure 6

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:


Figure 7

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.
