Posted by Xavier Hacking

SAP Lumira, Designer edition – The Comprehensive Guide is now available for purchase via and Amazon and can be ordered as hardcopy, DRM-free ebook or bundled editions. This is the ‘Designer’ counterpart to SAP Lumira, Discovery edition – The Comprehensive Guide that we released just a couple of weeks ago. Just as the Discovery book, it covers all the new features from the recent 2.1 release of SAP Lumira.

This massive book with over 750 pages is the ultimate resource for every Lumira Designer user, whether you are completely new to the tool, or already have experience with the earlier – SAP Design Studio – releases. With our step-by-step instructions, and hundreds of detailed screenshots, we explain the possibilities that SAP Lumira, Designer edition has to offer in an easy to understand way. Next to all of the components, scripting and configuration options, we show several usage scenarios for Lumira Designer. Also, topics like planning, CSS and the SDK are covered. We added several sections on designing principles for building applications and performance tuning.

A reading sample, the full table of contents and the index is available here.

    Hi Xavier,
    I am new to SAP world. I use other BI tools though. I bought SAP Lumira Designer Editon. What we have is Lumira Designer 2.2 version. The samples and examples provided has link to SAP BW. I cannot use them for reference or run them locally. Where can I learn scripting. Designing layout is not very clear in this book or I am not getting it. Any suggestion in this regard would be great help. Thank you!

      Hi Shailaja,

      You can also follow the examples using HANA views. Chapter 6 gives a walkthrough of the tool. Scripting is explained in chapter 8.

    Hi Xavier, do you know when a new version of the book will occur to match the Lumira Designer 2.3 Version ?
    Thank you

      Hi Steve, there are no plans for a book on 2.3, but as the Lumira Designer updates are pretty minor the current book should be sufficient.
