SAP Lumira is SAP’s self-service solution that allows analysts and decision makers to access, transform, and visualize data.

We’re extremely excited to announce that SAP has chosen Fotolia to be content partners. This partnership will enable SAP’s customers who are using Lumira to be able to search for Fotolia images to help present their data in a more visually appealing way.

In the past, SAP users imported images from the local file system to add them to the “images picker” on the left hand side panel and use them in their compositions (infographic, board etc).

Now, in the same menu, they can also import them using Fotolia services. Here’s a quick demonstration on how the software is integrated:

1

A dialog box opens up. The user uses the ‘search field’ and ‘drag and drop’ option and on the right hand menu. The images they want to add to their collection are now clearly detectable.

2

The Fotolia images appear in the “image picker” with a little logo to distinguish local images and images taken from Fotolia.

The user can now use these images in their infographics for example.

When they do, the image appears with the Fotolia watermark and a new panel appears on the right panel so the user can log in using their Fotolia credentials.

3

Once the user is logged in, they can access their cart to buy the images they are using.

4

When the user clicks on “Buy”, they simply go follow the normal Fotolia steps to buy the selected images, download them on the file system and replace them in the composition so there is no watermark anymore.

It’s as simple as that! The new integration ensures that users get the simplest, most effective means to downloading images for all their business needs.
