Data collection

SAP Lumira pulls data directly from a wide array of sources and then blends it together, removing the need to constantly check sources and classify data over and over. One of the primary functions is to allow businesses to coordinate data from a single module, usually with the click of just a few buttons.

Reduced preparation time

By reducing the number of clicks and source manipulation needed to run reports, SAP Lumira reduces the preparation time to produce complex data reports. Users can adjust the traditional framework with geographic information, merge data based on given attributes, set their own parameters, and apply sophisticated formulas without the need for any coding expertise.


SAP Lumira produces visualizations that are appealing as well as accurate. It comes with an array of unique analytic relationships and multiline charts to spot trends, as well as offering radars, tree maps, pies and bubble charts.

No IT team needed

SAP Lumira’s improved insights lead to improved productivity. Because it automates calculations and transformations without any need for coding knowledge, businesses do not have to depend on an IT team. It uses a single, IT-sanctioned security model to deliver data and reports.

Improving insight logically leads to improved productivity and business agility, creating a business environment where you no longer depend on your IT team. Automating calculations and transformations is now possible without coding knowledge, and there are no predefined functions for data discovery to follow. SAP Lumira detects and delivers information for good governance on a single, IT-sanctioned security model.
