Lumira has a lot of power in its data analytics capabilities. As you will see from my screenshots, it is also very user friendly. When you share your projects, as long as the other user has Lumira on their computer as well, things will work just fine. The issue comes in when you try to share findings with people who do not have Lumira installed on their computer... See below. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As I mentioned, if a user does not have Lumira on their computer, they will not be able to open your data analysis file unless you first take additional steps. I have found the best way to share results is to take screenshots of the graphs and then send the screenshot, not the LMP file. It does take a few extra clicks, especially if you want to show off multiple things. It isn't the end of the world, but it is something to be aware of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Like other data analysis software, Lumira allows us to turn data into information. It is user friendly, so the learning curve isn't as step as it is with some other software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If a company is using SAP and they don't want to divert to any other product , Lumira is a very good option for them but for companies who want to explore other tools as well , there is a stiff competition to Lumira from products like Tableau , TIBCO , Qulkview etc.There are few features which are not yet added in Lumira like Whatif Analysis.

The only one I couldn't like about the SAP BusinessObjects Lumira platform is the drawbacks pertaining to the accessible basic graphs and maps. Even we have to take technological assistance to incorporate design diagrams and charting. This will be enhanced and accessible users may either download charts or put in different charts and graphs to use them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Seek to check this app before you buy to ensure sure it suits your unique requirements and the consumers are at peace with the program. If you have trouble with it, or if you waste so much time attempting to get it to doing something that is hard to do with this app, then you'll be more off choosing another program to deal with.

When I began my year-long placement I was new to the world of work however with very little training I was able to use SAP Lumira as a tool to help me quickly become an effective and invaluable member of my team. This software, used in conjuction with other SAP modules, helped me to present information that essentially kept our Just In Time production flowing as I could let Senior Management know about potential upcoming issues before they appeared and was able to relay information on current issues clearly and quickly. Very good product, highly recommend. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have heard that SAP Lumira and even just SAP in general are quite expensive. There is the cost of licensing the software, the cost of implementation (which happened just before I started but there were still teething problems when I started) and then the cost of training when we did need SAP specialists to put on training for our team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider using it in conjunction with other SAP modules. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I used SAP Lumira it made presenting information a lot easier as I was in a Graduate Role at Faurecia working in Production Control and Logistics (Automotive Industry) and a lot of my role was presenting information to Senior Manage on how production was going, if there was any issues etc. This included creating graphs and trackers to say we have this many hours of production left before we run out of such and such parts. SAP Lumira made my role a lot easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We need OFFLINE viewing of data, to be able to save the reports to and iPad in HTML5 or similar format, and be able to go through the graphs with some level of interaction. I know it exports stories ... this is something more advanced. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

SAP Lumira is the best BI tool to analyze big data and make perfect use of it. It helps cleaning of data and gives real-time analytics of what is going on in your business performance. With a great simple UI and analytical graphs, it is easy to find the glitch and make it correct in business performance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used Lumira in several projects, one of them was for analysis and creation of ad/hoc reports, and visualizing the results of a big/data analytical project. Another opportunity when we effectively used Lumira was analysis of random incidents, where a measurement was several measurement points (technical PCs with sensors, database and application server logs). When searching for patterns and irregularities, Lumira helped us to quickly visualize outages, indicating where to further search for the problem. Seeing performance of all components on a common time-scale is very helpful for quick orientation on when and where the irregularity happens. Considering into account several millions of rows in each log, Lumira did a good job. It is advisable though to use a really quick PC with and SSD hard drive, and save the work frequently.
