SAP Lumira is a data visualisation and story creation tool. You can connect to multiple data sources to create datasets that can be enhanced with measures, hierarchies, calculations and customised columns. A wide range of editing tools allow you to manipulate, edit, format and streamline your data before you start to create graphical visualisations.
You can visualise your data using a range of chart and table types. By grouping charts together on presentation style dashboards you can create a visual narrative to describe your data. SAP Lumira is installed locally and can operate on either remote or local data. The charts built on these datasets can be printed or distributed by email. Your stories can be published to the SAP Business Intelligence platform. Your datasets can be published to SAP HANA, SAP Explorer and SAP Business Intelligence. Datasets and their charts that are created in SAP Lumira are saved in documents with the file format .lums. This is a document that contains the data source connection information, the data definition and data and the visualisations.
