  • Delivers the convergence of self-service data discovery and the creation of interactive dashboards and analytic applications in a single solution.
  • Provides a new user-friendly single canvas that enables interoperability between LoB and IT for rapid development, refinement, and promotion of BI content.
  • Brings IT and Business together for rapid and agile innovation

Simplify the User and Administrator Experience

Transform the end user and IT experience, enable broader use cases, and impact TCO. With this new release, SAP Lumira:

  • Enhances productivity and adoption with a reduced learning curve through easy to use single canvas and Fiori-style interface
  • Reduces IT administration costs by leveraging a single common technical framework
  • Provides extensions that enable content and data from expanded use case and application capabilities

Optimized Access to Governed Secure Data

  • Delivers access to SAP HANA, BW and Universes with optimized online and live connectivity
  • Enables information to act in the moment with SAP and non-SAP data sources
  • Natively operates on the trusted SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform providing proven scalability and data governance.
