SAP Analytics Cloud Review

Good for planning KPIs and has a user-friendly setup

What is our primary use case?

I use it if I want to see boardroom dashboards, or to see a combination of things in a chart. I also use it for planning analysis.

What is most valuable?

One feature I've found most valuable is Discovery. It is a logistics tool that will place the dashboard for you on the fly. For example, if you select a country, it will give the entire picture of where a product is high and where it is low. Another feature is peak capabilities in the applications. Another is planning KPIs

What needs improvement?

Now, improvements are coming quarterly whereas previously it was on a monthly basis. Even with this, it is still a market leader.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with SAP Analytics Cloud for almost one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I don't know that it's stable. This cloud is occupied by major businesses who want to do a dashboard on the fly with data discovery.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of scalability, it is cloud-based so it is scalable. 

No one should be able to go into our access, but they will give the space. You're the owner of the product space.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have rarely needed to be in touch with technical support for the setup.

Previously, I used to work with products called Explorer and HANA and they didn't support it in a quick manner.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have previously used Tableau.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy and user-friendly, I did it by myself without any consultant.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I'd give SAP Analytics Cloud an eight.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
