SAP Analytics & Lumira 2.0

After listening to webinars on Lumira 2.0 & Analytics, I thought of Bringing some important points . In this blog I am  going to provide some overview about SAP Transformation on Analytic Tools and Lumira 2.0.

As Organizations Data is Keep on Growing, It is becoming hard to analyze data.

SAP  Started Focusing on Analytics to Analyze huge Data  without effecting Performance. their focus is to build a Single report and use across different platforms i.e. report can be accessed in desktop or mobile platform. while accessing reports Firoi helped users to get good user experience and mobile compatibility .

Few Analytic Tools By SAP

  1. SAP Analytics Cloud
  2. SAP Business Intelligence
  3. SAP Lumira
  4. SAP Digital Boardroom

As SAP made It’s move to SaaS Platform, It has Provided few Analytic Services.


SAP Analytics Cloud:  This Cloud bases SaaS Platform is built on HANA, here users can create models and Create their own Stories on Reports. we can integrate in-house hana environment with Analytics Cloud. users wont be having issues with BI versions and there is chance of getting less bugs compared to in-house.

  • we need to consider better sizing while purchasing Cloud
  • No.of  licensed users required
  • Common BI version through Cloud Environment

SAP Lumira 2.0: Lumira Is a tool which is used to create Stories.

Data can be directly fetched from BW/HANA. If a Story is crated by using Lumira Discovery report can be saved in BI environment and It can be used in Designer to do changes same as vice-versa.

on Fly Geo Mapping Technique is used in Lumira 2.0 i.e. real time Address mapping can be done in Geo Maps in Lumira.

Velocity Engine acts as a storage buffer in BI environment,  because of this data can fetched in lesser time compared to getting data from DB. here reports can be saved into BI platform and can be used by both designer or Desktop
