Announcing the Integration of Narratives into SAP BusinessObjects Lumira
I am pleased to announce our partnership with SAP and the launch of our Integrated Narratives offering specific to SAP BusinessObjects Lumira.
SAP has consistently been recognized as a leader in Enterprise Application Software because of the technology's ability to cater to the enterprise with innovative, scalable solutions. Now, they are taking their appetite for innovation one step further by integrating narratives into SAP BusinessObjects Lumira.
Here are three reasons why SAP BusinessObjects Lumira and Narratives are a complementary match:
1) Solutions for the enterprise
SAP BusinessObjects Lumira is a self-service visualization platform that makes it easy to generate real-time insights with minimal training, enabling enterprises to make sense of large volumes of data from a variety of both external and internal sources.
By integrating Advanced NLG alongside SAP BusinessObjects Lumira’s charts and graphs, enterprises can scale the democratization of data analysis even further, empowering entire organizations to engage in smart data discovery.
Per our user, Milan Topolic, Supply Chain Functional Leader at Coca-Cola HBC Ireland and Northern Ireland, "The potential value of integrated narratives is limitless as data is increasingly informing business decisions across roles, functions and teams.With narratives, data becomes universally accessible as users can instantly understand and share insights about what is impacting their organization."
2) Continued innovation
To align with its vision to “help the world run better and to improve people’s lives”, SAP pursues technological innovations that make people more productive. With 18 worldwide SAP labs focused on R&D for core products and 10 SAP innovation centers across four continents, continued innovation drives SAP’s ability to maintain its industry leading position year after year.
SAP’s next wave of innovation includes automated storytelling, powered by Advanced NLG, which helps customers leverage data insights to transform their businesses.
3) Mission: enable everyone
Both SAP and Narrative Science aim to enhance human productivity and enable everyone to understand their data and make smarter business decisions. With SAP BusinessObjects Lumira, users can effortlessly and securely share data and analysis across organizations.
Narratives enable everyone to not only see data through visualizations but also to read the most important and interesting insights about data through intelligent narratives. With a click of a button, users can export and publish insights into a shared document for others. This allows everyone to spend more time on what truly matters - leveraging information to make decisions that drive businesses forward.
