They both do completely different things, so can`t be compared.

Also, both have been depreciated, Xcelsius for a very long time.

thanks for your reply.

Xcelsius and Explorer support both ends by 2020. SAP support suggested SAP Analytics Cloud, but it is not clear whether SAP Analytics Cloud requires separate license like Lumira. Can you please share your experience in SAP Analytics Cloud and Lumira tool.

thanks

By depreciated, I should have clarified when! Also, flash support has been depreciated in most browsers, so no way of sharing the content anyway.

SAC needs a different license to Lumira. It`s 100% cloud based and doesn`t directly integrate with the rest of the SAP BI platform (apart from with Universes). Lumira won`t be getting any new functionality so probably not worth focusing on that too much. That said, there isn`t much you could do in Lumira 2.0 Discovery that you can`t do in SAC, and also you can now do application design in SAC (like Lumira 2.0 Designer).
