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."

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 »

"Would like the ability to be able to benchmark.""There should be a better or an easier way to establish that connection to external sources."

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."

"14,000 Pounds per year for licensing.""I am still using the two-week trial, but at first sight, the price is reasonable."

Overview

The SAP® Analytics Cloud solution offers all analytics capabilities for all users in one product. In the boardroom, at the office, or in front of a customer, you can discover, analyze, plan, predict, and collab­orate in one integrated experience designed expressly for the cloud. Access all data and embed analytics directly into business processes to turn instant insight into quick action. Because we built it on the high­performance SAP Cloud Platform, you can trust the solution to work quickly and reliably.

XLCubed is an add-in tool for Microsoft Excel that allows you to point to analysis and services cubes or any other relational databases so that you can create ad-hoc analysis, reporting and even dashboards that can be published to the web with a single click. Once you put items on the web, the environments are the same, which is really cool because the user interactivity and use of the report on the web and in Microsoft Excel is the same.
