According to the SAP speaker, Figure 8 is an "important slide".

Lumira today is desktop client, and the engine is the velocity engine

In orange on Figure 8 is in-memory With Lumira Desktop you have the "freedom with what data to work – engine is consolidator Use preparation room on top of in-memory engine

With Lumira, the strongest part is data prep, velocity engine, any type of data, bring it together Lumira 2.x will have online integration to BW/HANA (no online integration to BW today)

The plan is to include UI improvements, visualization and online

Today Design Studio has strong online integration to BW, HANA

To be improved connectivity to universes, data sources, no offline capability

In the Studio plan to have velocity engine, data prep in desktop client and seamlessly use it in studio Data access is same picture Data acquisition in in-memory engine – Lumira Design Studio has BICS strength

Will get OLAP capability in Lumira and offline in Design Studio
