Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The new Application Design option offers lots of customization options by being able to script in Typescript (similar to Javascript).""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."

"From a scalability standpoint, I would say it's pretty fantastic.""The two features that I have found most valuable are its ability to customize the dashboards when it comes to the evaluation. The second feature is its ability to handle a large amount of data, which is also something very unique about it.""The out-of-the-box features are simple and easy to use across the board."

Cons
"There should be more features for the time series charts.""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."

More SAP Analytics Cloud Cons »

"The design of the UI could be improved.""When it comes to data manipulation, there are features which are good, but one of the features which has really been missing in Spotfire is an offline ability for data manipulation.""Personalising Spotfire, as a whole, is painful and is something that could be made easier."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is a bit expensive, but really worth it, especially if you are already using other SAP tools.""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."
