Did you know… Visualization Best Practices?

Lumira provides a diverse range of visualizations for your data. At the time of writing there are 38 different visualizations spread across 9 different categories. In addition to the more common crosstab, line, bar and pie charts, Lumira offers geo maps, box plots, Marimeeko charts, heat maps, plus funnel and waterfall charts, to mention just a few.

But when analyzing your data or telling your story, what is the best visualization to use?

Fortunately you can download the free “SAP Lumira Data Visualization Handbook”. This best practice guide for data visualization will show you how to efficiently approach your data, utilize elements within data storytelling and decide which visualization best supports your story.

“Did you know…” is a series of short blogs by the BI & Analytics Competence Centre, a global team within SAP engineering focused 100% on customer success. They are a useful reminder of Lumira hints, tips and best practices.

      Indeed a great handbook. And it get's event better!

      1. The handbook was introduced in a webinar (Nov 4), a recording of which is available (Flavia Moser & Jane Fu)

      2. This handbook covers one aspect of great visualizations. Another one is guidelines & recommendations for impactful data presentations (Jun 17), and guess what - a webinar recording is available for that as well (Jacob Stark)

      Both recordings can be found on our SAP BusinessObjects Lumira - Events Calendar.

      Hi Jan-Gerrit,
      Our organization just purchased Lumira.  I saw your post and was interested in the webinars but when I went out to the link above: it said it wasn't found.  Do you know if there is a new location for for these webinars and more?
