Coming soon: SAP Lumira, Discovery Edition – The Comprehensive Guide

Posted by Xavier Hacking

Big news, as I am very happy to announce our newest SAP Press book: SAP Lumira, Discovery Edition – The Comprehensive Guide. For this book I teamed up with my Interdobs colleague Martijn van Foeken (@mfoeken), who is a seasoned SAP BusinessObjects specialist with over 10 years of hands-on experience.

The major SAP Lumira 2 release of last summer brought so many changes and that much new stuff to the toolset, that we decided to not just update the existing “Getting Started with SAP Lumira” book from 2015 (based on SAP Lumira 1.18, ‘member?), but to start all over again. Our book will cover the recent SAP Lumira 2.1 update as well. In the weeks towards the release date, I’ll share some more details on the exact content and what you can expect to learn from this book.

The book will be available at and Amazon, probably by the end of this quarter, in ebook, print and bundled editions.
