Also known as: 
  • SAP Lumira
  • Data Visualization
SAP Lumira is an application you can use to visualize and create “stories” about your data. From manipulating, editing, formatting, and refining data, to creating visualizations that represent data graphically, to finally sharing the visualizations – building stories in Lumira starts and ends with your data. Import data from Excel, perform visual analysis using intuitive dashboards, and securely share insights and data stories with your team.
Note that Lumira currently accepts data files that are in Excel, .txt, or .csv formats. Additional data sources will be made available in the future.
