SAP announces the release of SAP Lumira 2 which is a combination of Discovery (previously known as Lumira Discovery) and Designer (previously known as Design Studio). With Lumira 2 some of the key functionalities are delivered all set to enhance the Lumira experience for Discovery and designer users:

  • Interoperability between Discovery and Designer.
  • Enhanced User Experience.
  • SAP BW Live analysis.

Single sign-on and Security are important aspects of enterprise deployment of Lumira and this summarizes the single-sign on and security of Lumira 2.1 to HANA and BW data sources:

  1. Please, Matthew is there any document available showing limitations between LUMIRA based on LIVE SAP BW Data versus LUMIRA based on Imported SAP BW data connections?For example with respect to creating new measures, data cleansing, etc.?

    Or is there NO Difference?

    1. Hi Andreas

      I am not aware of such a document, nor have I really seen a need for it. E.g.; assumption is that there are few if any differences. Searching for KBAs with key words "Lumira" "BW" will bring a number of assets - perhaps some will touch on the subject. The following KBAs are all  that I can think of that may be of some use regarding this topic:

      2343573 - *** MASTER KBA *** SAP Lumira and SAP BW

      2354853 - What BEx Query Elements are supported by SAP Lumira?

       

      With best regards,
