SAP Lumira grew out of SAP Business Explorer, the company’s previous, but more basic, self-service data visualization tool. According to SAP, the two are meant to go hand-in-hand. For example, analysts using SAP Lumira can alter data structures and correlations in whatever way they want, without the help of their IT department, then push the data back into the system so it can then be consumed by more casual users in tools like Business Explorer.
