Comments: Lumira is a powerful visualization tool. It could be even more powerful if it had excel-like pivot table drill down features. Currently it requires some preparation work.

Pros: SAP Lumira can either be used in conjunction with the SAP HANA in-memory platform or without.

Cons: Educations is from SAP needed

Overall: SAP Lumira came out of SAP Business Explorer, the company's previous, but more basic, self-service data visualization tool for functional business users. My Analysts using SAP Lumira can alter data structures and correlations in whatever way they want, without the help of their IT department, then push the data back into the system so it can then be consumed by more casual users in tools like Business Explorer. One of the perfect tool to be used along with SAP HANA.
Lot user-friendly for expanding the age reports involved in monthly reviews

Recommendations to other buyers: Integration with MS excel needs to enhance for importing data from no CVS format.

Pros: Easy to understand
Easy to get started with
Easy to scale
Fairly priced

Cons: Some of the output formats are bit rigid
Limited functionality to manipulate data before reporting (ie the 'transform layer')

Overall: Lumira is a good addition to the BI landscape. I found it very easy to work with and understand, and fairly priced.
You can hook up some data sources and be up and running in very little time (as long as your source data is good of course!). It is mostly a front end tool. Don't expect to do too much complicated crunching of multiple data sets...for that other tools such as MS PowerPivots & Power BI are probably better - but for a very good, usable, BI solution to sit on top of some ready made data sets, Lumira is an excellent choice.

Pros: Easy to install and get started. Ability to use different kinds of data sources easily.

Cons: The absence of broadcasting functionality.

Overall: The most positive aspect is that it's easy to install and get started, as well as easy use various data sources. However I do miss ver much the functionality of scheduling/broadcasting reports, resulting in that I have to to that manually, resulting in that in many cases I do not use Lumira for that reason.

Pros: Seemless "Prepare", "Visualize" and "Compose" functionality. Including linking files, filtering and multiple charting options. Like the hierarchy features for geographic and date drilling. Also, support for numerous data sources

Cons: formatting, sizing and scheduling refreshes

Overall: I was the 1st member of my team to install Lumira 1.30 desktop and connect to HANA, MS SQL and Oracle databases. We are currently installing Lumira 1.31 on Linux Server for Enterprise sharing.

Recommendations to other buyers: incorporate more true dashboard functionality instead of user story strategy like the Design Studio product.

Comments: when working with Lumira, we noticed not that many charts available to do any statical analysis. for example No Control charts, Histogram, Gantt chart, Highlight Table. Hope Lumira can incorporate some of these feature in later versions.
