Design Studio 1.6 or Lumira 2.0 Designer?

We are planning to upgrade to BI 4.2 and are weighing our options related to dashboard tools. We are currently using design studio 1.6 SP3 - we will have to upgrade this to a higher patch level to work with BI 4.2

Are there any benefits of moving to Lumira 2.0 designer instead?

    Hi Swetha,

    You should definitely upgrade to Lumira Designer 2.0 as this is introduces new features and a new architecture. Given that you need to upgrade anyway, there is absolutely no reason for staying on Design Studio 1.6.

    If you are upgrading to BI 4.2 SP05, then you should upgrade to Lumira Designer 2.1.

    Regards,

    Mustafa.

    As Mustafa explained above, Lumira 2.x has more features. It is only one install for server side to upgrade to Lumira 2.x which will cover Lumira and Design Studio. Check this blog for promotions and upgrades.

    Thank you Jawahar and Mustafa for your replies :)

    Is it worth upgrading to Lumira 2.0 even if we are only opting for designer?

    • Yes, you should still upgrade to Lumira 2.0 even if you are opting only for Designer. Frankly, there is no excuse for not upgrading in your scenario.

    Hi Guys

    I am on BI 4.2 SP3 and am looking to upgrade to SP5, we too use only Design Studio 1.6 so should i upgrade to Lumira 2.1?

    I can find the Lumira Designer install, is this for the client install? I cant see any server side install? *Edit: i found the server side install.

    What happens to the old Design Studio BIP Addon? Does that get removed as part of install or just stay in situe?

    Thanks

    Alex

    I was told that Lumira end -of-life is 2022. We've not yet started any development on Lumira 2.1 and are not starting anything new just yet. Any thoughts on this ?

    Thanks.
