It helps our BUs analyze data and create dashboards they can understand. While slowing down with a large database, it becomes less helpful. In my experience, it is excellent in consolidating information from several sources for analysis, decision-making, and knowledge gaps. Excellent at managing information access.

Good tool with lots of potential, but I still see a lot of room for improvement, e.g. when it comes to debugging functionality to understand exactly where pipelines fail and what the data at that point looks like (similar to BW debugging). Also, I am missing SAPs standard machine learning libraries (Python) to be pre-installed, among some other general usability improvements.
