Creating a SAP Lumira visualization

We can create a SAP Lumira visualization by using the SAP Lumira reporting tool. The three different sources of data can be used with this tool: BW query, Universe, and SAP HANA view. In this section, we will present a story about the revenue of our sample company's data (eFashion).

We will look at how we can create visualizations using a Universe (eFashion) and using SAP BW query as a data source. You can try this yourself by using SAP HANA for your data source visualizations.
