What You'll Learn

What’s the role of data and analytics in fueling digital transformation?

Digital transformation requires new ways of thinking about data and how it is used. It also requires breaking data siloes and process barriers that prevent business users and IT from coming together. To become the agile and adaptive business today’s customers demand, companies must do more to harness the abundance of data across the enterprise and put it to work at the speed of business.

SAP Lumira addresses this challenge by offering companies a fresh and bold approach, combining self-service data discovery and interactive dashboard and analytic application creation in one solution. With optimized connectivity to SAP systems, it delivers breakthrough performance and insight. Now everyone can have confidence the numbers are right and that time isn’t wasted on managing data silos and shadow IT tasks.
