How is customer service and technical support?

I rate them 9/10. Very good and very fast support from SAP.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I used Jaspersoft and I changed at the same time as I changed jobs.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think the pricing and licensing is expensive, but the tool is aimed at the big companies.

What other advice do I have?

If the business case calls for creating static reports/dashboards, this tool is awesome. If the business case is for dynamic reports/dashboards, I don't recommend it.
