Eric Schemer and Ashok Kumar presented this session last week at SAP TechEd Las Vegas

SAP is moving forward in its convergence strategy

They are consolidating to have a small number of BI dedicated clients in its portfolio

Starting SAP Lumira 2.0, you won’t hear about Design Studio as a product, but it’s there, converged with Lumira product

Everything is subject to change

Data is on premise, also in the cloud

Importance of BI platform is shown by ongoing investment

Analysis Office has reached over 8K customers; interop options for Lumira 2.0, bringing data together in Lumira 2.0 and leverage MS office environment

Later this is there will be a private beta for Lumira 2.0 starting in December; Q1 next year is ramp-up, and in Q2 plan to go to general availability

This takes longer; “benefits of one product” outweigh going forward separately

BW4HANA was built “just for HANA”, “the new kid on the block”

Leverage power of HANA

Front end for BW4HANA could be BusinessObjects Cloud, Lumira 2.0

What the merger means for the business

Lumira Desktop client will be called “Discovery” with better BW/HANA online integration

For developers, keep the studio experience – “Designer” for expert and developers

Figure 10 shows the high level architecture

Lumira Desktop was strong using offline, data prep, and velocity engine; what was missing in Lumira Desktop was online integration into BW

With Lumira Discovery it will have BW online connectivity

Designer (today’s Design Studio) – good BW integration but weak merging data, offline data, and will have velocity engine from Lumira; can use data prep from Lumira

Interop planned for Designer and Discovery

This shows the workflows planned for the product

If you are a business user, and work with discovery, you can push your stories to the Designer

Designer can open it and use SDK, JavaScripting to deploy into professional applicaiton

Another scenario is the self service and a customized discovery experience

Lumira 1.x has different rooms; in 2.x comes with new UX

Figure 13: Source: SAP

Revamped the home screen; it is more personalized

Figure 14: Source: SAP

New UX, single canvas for data prep, explore, find insights, build dashboards and tell a story

Figure 15: Source: SAP

For charts, start with one chart, and convert to another chart

Improved cross tab (comes from Design Studio

Figure 16: Source: SAP

Now one filter to define

Figure 17: Source: SAP

Input controls are another type of filters but more interactive but now add drag and drop and allows formatting for controls

Figure 18: Source: SAP

Earlier Lumira had offline BW connections; will have online BW access

Figure 19: Source: SAP

Will be able to define a layout that is responsive to content – e.g. iPad, laptop

Will support the different aspect ratio

Figure 20: Source: SAP

Universe Query Panel and BW extensions will come by default

Designer mode improvements

Figure 21 shows capability to create composites; a way to create UI elements without using SDK; using drag and drop to create KPI tiles without going to development
