We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"For report scheduling, I always prefer SAP because it has the most powerful scheduling features, like sending reports to more than 1,000 customers per day. That option is not as good in Microsoft BI and in Tableau it only exists as an add-on option."
"What I like best about this solution is that it is built into the SAP line, making it easier to integrate with other SAP products."
"Great capability, performance, flexibility, visuals, and the solution is also very cost effective."
"I am looking forward to testing their full graphics that are available, as they looked very interesting in the demo."
"The analytics part of SAP has not been that good up until now. They're still in the infant stage and development is still going on. SAP has some cloud analytics and they're trying to configure it in Lumira, but it's not that good at this point."
"The interface can be simplified because it is not a user-friendly experience."
"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."
"14,000 Pounds per year for licensing."
"I am still using the two-week trial, but at first sight, the price is reasonable."
