What is new in SAP Lumira 2.1 #ASUG Webcast #Reporting2017

This was covered in an ASUG webcast last week and parts of it at Reporting 2017.

On the ASUG side we did not have enough time to cover Lumira Designer; please register for the Lumira Designer 2.1 webcast here.  We did see a screen shot below:

The commentary function is big, demo composites and samples are big too.  Scheduling is important.

What is new in Discovery is you can format input controls

Linked Analysis – click on “state” of a chart and it will impact other charts

Filter on measures is available

Forecasting is back

Export to PDF includes WYSIWYG

BI4.2 SP05 includes support for unified viewer

These features were quickly reviewed; first bullet – you don’t need the client version to create a new document (my read)

Broadcasting is available and GDPR compliance for EMEA countries

Filtering by measures and customizing input controls were discussed in the ASUG webcast above, but the above figure provides more details.

As you can see end to end analysis can be done with BW on the BI Launchpad.  There is a small note below that says “Both BW & HANA Live end to end workflow are not supported in new BILP” (source: SAP)

Attendees at Reporting 2017 the other week were looking forward to seeing Scheduling and Broadcasting

      Good post. Thanks for sharing.

      Hope the SAP Lumira team will eventually be able to offer an enterprise ready self service & data visualization tool from this 2.1 version. Look forward to it.

      Thanks,

      Hi

      Lumira 2.1 was released today the discovery chart features do not seem to be included? When you look at competitor products  SAP need to delivery richer features in shorter time lines for on premise BI Solutions...not all customers are moving to the cloud

      Hi Tammy,

      What about the mobile device support for Lumira Discovery?

      Lumira Discovery 2.0 supports Lumira content on SAP Mobile 6.6 application with iOS 9 and above. However, it is not supported on iPad2, iPhone and Android. Still same or any enhancements?

      Hi Tammy,

       

      we are having issues with Mobile BI and Lumira 2.0/2.1 at a customer.

      Lumira documents (Lumira 2.0 & 2.1 both) are not opening in the app, both for iphone and android. Are there any server side settings that we need to change for this to work?

      Which BI server version did you use to test this?

       

      Best regards,

      Aneeque

      I am using BI4.2 SP05 - that's where it works.  If you have more issues please post this as a question at answers.sap.com under SAP BusinessObjects Mobile BI

      How come SAP has not resolved the issue of records limitation in bar charts of 10000 !!!

      i was expecting it to be resolved in lumira 2.1.

       

      Thanks
