Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"All of the modules that we used to have separately in our on-premises solution are now integrated into one platform.""The Smart Predict, Smart Insights, and Smart Discovery predictive analysis features are quite good.""The most valuable features are the visualization and user-friendliness.""The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature. We haven't tried all of the features yet. The graphing and the ease of using the analytics tools have been great. It's all drag and drop; you don't need to code anything.""Provides rich features for developing automated reports and dashboards.""The user interface is quite good for developing reports out of models.""Planning is the most valuable feature of the product because it's integrated and that means we don't need to rely on an independent planning environment.""One feature I've found most valuable is discovery."

Cons
"I would like to see reporting to the Analytics cloud directly.""Some of the standard visualizations, such as a speedometer or a goal chart, are not there and should be added.""We are currently working on connectivity with S/4HANA, but we would like to have better connectivity with our legacy systems.""Statistical analysis should be a bit more profound than it is.""SAP Analytics cloud needs better exporting options.""There is no direct connector from SAP to Redshift, so we are required to use a third-party product that was recommended by SAP.""When it comes to planning there is a concern about the ability to match the exact requirements of the customer with what the product offers.""Improvements are coming quarterly whereas previously it was on a monthly basis."

"Technical support could be improved because they take too long to answer our queries.""I think that this solution should be more compatible with other software, including open-source solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is not the most expensive one. You have to do the cost-of-ownership analysis and take a lot of things into consideration to come up with the conclusion that it is cheaper or not, but its price is reasonable. It provides value for money.""It's quite expensive and costs a lot to maintain, especially with licensing.""It's not that costly as such for the time being.""Its licensing is on a monthly basis.""Compute and storage features should be sold separately.""Its pricing is okay as compared to its competitors."

"If SAS were more flexible in terms of licensing then that would be good, because it costs more than other solutions."
