The graphomate charts, graphomate´s first product, remain our top seller. Through constant evolution and optimization we are able to offer our customers the most sophisticated chart component on the market.

Our graphomate charts for Microsoft Power BI are available exclusively at Microsoft AppSource:

Thus, you can import a graphomate chart created in SAP Lumira Designer into Microsoft Power BI or integrate it into SAP Fiori – without having to reset the parameters..
