Webinar - SAP Lumira Live Data Connectivity

When: Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 10 am / 2 pm EDTWhy do you need live data connectivity for Lumira?

The convergence of SAP Design Studio and SAP Lumira is big news for SAP BusinessObjects users needing to create and use visualizations to communicate BI's single version of the truth. To achieve this single version, BI practitioners -- from business users to designers -- need to establish the best and most diverse data connectivity possible.

Lumira connects live to HANA. If it's a good idea to connect live to HANA, it's probably a good idea to connect live to other enterprise data sources.

The APOS Live Data Gateway simplifies and extends the data connectivity for SAP Lumira. The Live mode of data connectivity provides:
  • Connection to trusted and governed data sources
  • A simplified discovery experience, with no need to write SQL
  • Flexible data selection
  • Data that is always current
  • Stronger security -- no data stored on the user's computer
  • The ability to use the Lumira Discovery web client -- no install on the client machine

The key to Lumira's success, now and for the future, is the integration of discovery and design within a single solution, and the interoperability of that solution with other components of the SAP BI landscape.

Here's the road map David laid out for us during the webinar:
