SAC vs Lumira

0

Share

In this context, SAP introduced its new flagship some time ago: SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC). This will replace Lumira Designer and enable both power users and business users to create dashboards. SAP Analytics Cloud is currently being enhanced with new functions in fairly rapid cycles and is already competing with Lumira Designer in the current version, even though SAC does not yet offer the full functionality of Lumira. But where exactly are the differences between the two solutions? Which tool is the best for you to meet your dashboard requirements?
