Unifying BW Query Designer features with Lumira

In the old BEx world, we had a thing called BEx Web Analyzer -- it was basically a web representation of the BEx Query that was created in BEX Query Designer. We're able to create calculated key figures, restricted key figures, use standard variables, and create custom variables, create structures, etc. These are things that can't be done in Lumira 2.0 with the BW Live (Online) connection.

Going forward to BW/4HANA, BEx Query Designer is just called Query Designer since BEx Analyzer and BEx Web Application Designer are no longer available.

It's seems very strange to me with the BW Live connection that I have to do some things in BW Query Designer and some things in Lumira. Why can't these things be combined into Lumira itself?

    Hi Mel - I believe Ramu Gowda, SAP, answered you on today's webcast with this:

    "Lumira Discovery isn't planned to be a Query Designer. However, we plan to deliver few capabilities or data enrichment like Creating calculated measures, Geo hierarchies, Custom hierarchies, Blending with other sources etc.."
