They were very helpful in the purchase and implementation.
Make sure that the IT focused nature of the development meets your needs.
Look and feel of the finished product is great.
Initially limited to iOS only devices. They are addressing that.
Allow more direct interaction through a browser or client.
Get the user group to provide direct feedback earlier.

Overall Vendor is decently responses to needs of our organization. SAP is behind on the analytics side. There are other tools and applications that are much easier and better for our needs in healthcare. BO and Crystal reports is pretty old feeling, and the features are not inovative. Works for standard needs
Understand the needs and speed in which your customers will consume info. Other products better for end user consumptions and understanding
Support license model is decentley easy to deploy
lack of real time data use. Amount of time spent on maintenance. Behind in analytics capabilities
Work on its structure for analytics
Make it easier to switch platforms, also better content and data management
Is alright. Alot of maintenance

SAP roadmap and product integration change is very often and the stability for the customer realization time is relatively low due to acquisition and inheritance of other analytical tools. Very low stability with the version upgrades and confusion about predictive capabilities removed and added with other platforms reduced our trust in vendor roadmap and forced us to choose a secondary self-service analytics as a safety net for our business users.
Delay the enterprise rollout and wait for a clear product roadmap to be released.
Easy for business users to use and product simplicity in getting data, processing, creating storyboards and sharing with the teams.
Version upgrades happen too often before maturity and too much confusion on implementation with each release.
Not taking away the previous version capabilities and enhancing the support of backward compatibility with Lumira Cloud version too.
Wait for the product to get matured or choose a self-service which has a stable platform and roadmap compatible with existing infrastructure investments.

We have existing relationship with vendor which we were able to leverage and make this a better experience.
Hash out requirements and match to product functionalities before final lock down of product.
Ease of setup.
Fragmented tool setup and overlap of funtionalities between different tools with no specific direction of product usage for specific business case scenarios by user types.

Too complex product suite with too many place to go for ans. made our implementation streched out - they have information that is required to support - but its too vast to collate !!
Read SAP documentation - go to Tech Ed conference - Speak to others who had implemented - learn from others challanges before you start - this would be valueble and can save lot of time that you might be spending with support.
Great Product - business love it. Crystal report is unmatched on the features.
SAP had complicated by integrating HANA and cloud together - provide options for users who do not need HANA but need Lumira only or cloud only.
Have the support work more focused - global support dosen't mean we have to repeat the same support questions 10 times each time.
SAP had come up with quick implementation templates to help bring down time to market - would have used it to make it easy.

Fit well within the SAP environment

We were on an antiquated version of this product.
Leverage proven methodology and best practices. Focus on the design of your universes, metadata, quality and consistency of reports.
The capabilities of the newer version of the product.
Software solution is buggy and it is very hard to get support.
Brought in proven best practices, focused on architecture.
Leverage proven methodology and best practices before implementation.
Need to invest more in this capability.
The internal IT teams should have been more involved in the implementaiotn.

Product is improving from version to version / from month to month.
It doesn't replace the existing analytics tools. Look to specific needs.
Easy to use. Out of the box functionalities like creating geographic or date dimension. Lumira server concept good for large deployment.
Not all BW queries work from the begining. Not easy to find the root cause.
No. Start small with one business case.
One of the strengths of the product.

Ease of getting it up and running and integrating with SAP BW data.
If you run a SAP shop, I would highly recommend you keep applications within the SAP ecosystem; it will save in the long run on data/master data integration and eventually, SAP will be near or at the top for.
Very easy to use and train end users on; inexpensive licensing cost.

Very happy with the products individually but would like better integration between toolsets.
Test and evaluate different tool sets offered by each vendor and choose the one that would be most beneficial to entire enterprise instead of looking at individual business/project needs.
Ease of use
Integrate acquired products together across the stack of BI tools.
