now the requirement is for sap lumira is it compatible with IPS and bods

i was going through the installation guide it ask to uninstall IPS

"You have uninstalled SAP BusinessObjects BI Add-on for SAP Lumira Server for HANA before proceeding with SAP Lumira, server for BI Platform installation. For more information, see 2193940 .

● You have uninstalled Information Platform Service(IPS) and Crystal Server set up before proceeding with SAP Lumira, server for BI Platform installation."

IPS is not a supported platform, please do review provided link to PAR.
You need a full fledged BI Platform for Lumira to work with it.
IPS is not it.
