Likelihood to Recommend

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

Axiom is ideal for organizations with multiple departments that need to collect, share, and integrate data from common internal data sources. The product is best for very large organizations with a lot of financial backing. I wouldn't suggest using Axiom if you're a small organization or only one department, for example.

Pros

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

  • Compared to a previous EPM we used, Axiom's template load and saving performance has been much better even for large plan files.
  • Axiom consultants can create completely customized reports for any of the collected data. Super users within your organization can then fairly easily modify their work to create additional reports without Axiom's help (and invoices)
  • Setting up user security is a fairly easy one-time task and very easy to maintain when people change departments, leave the organization, etc. I would recommend you use role-based security settings.
  • Compared to our previous EPM, Axiom allows more customization and possibilities for templates. There's very few "the product can't do that" statements.

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Synchronization of data across [the] entire ERP system on a real-time basis in a single software. Additionally, if any additional data is to be processed that can also be imported into the software
  • Preparation of business reports which are very understandable and can be in the form of tables, graphs, or statistics which are very attractive and very helpful for decision-makers in the organization
  • Further, SAP Analytics Cloud is not a very costly software as compared to other single-use-based software. This software provides a wide range of features in a single software which becomes very feasible for the organization.

Cons

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

  • Unfortunately, Axiom only assigned two implementation consultants to our massive project and both were completely new to the product and inexperienced.
  • This isn't really a fault of Axiom, but your organization's data has to be perfect before implementing Axiom. You need a strong project manager within your organization to take the lead in working with Axiom. They should be very familiar with the source data and what's important to all your internal stakeholders. The Axiom team needs to be clearly told exactly what you need from them.
  • We never truly felt confident anyone from Axiom was really familiar with the source tables and data being used. I would suggest in any project they make that a priority early on. Not being familiar with the data caused a list of issues regarding reporting and template construction.

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • SAC still encounters lots of limitations (such as limited scheduling capabilities), where workarounds are not always possible. In its early days, the analytical application was too basic to capture real-life problems and be an added value for clients.
  • I face problems when trying to add new models from the HANA database. It's simpler in Power BI as you just need to select the correct calculation view and the visual tools are simple and easy to navigate with.
  • Need more chart options while using analytics story, instead, we have more options on the analytic application.

The usability of SAP Analytics Cloud is perfectly fine for all the components it offers in the tool. The initial setups and integrations of various modules is easy and can be managed well in longer run. The features are useful for any business setup and the teams working on the tool usually doesn't face any problems in routine tasks.

For the scale of our implementation, Axiom only assigned two consultants who were both completely new to the company. It felt like we were all learning about the product together, when you would expect them to already be experts at their own product. The team also made a good bit of mistakes throughout production and go-live, which then caused more work internally for us. The team lead for our project also just left the company, so we'll see how next year's planning goes

SAP support customer system is very well streamlined for all of it's products and same is the case for SAP Analytics Cloud. It also has a good community support available on the internet forums, so the overall support of SAP Analytics Cloud is very good in my opinion and customers get a well worth support in case of any issue.

Alternatives Considered

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

Vena was a strong product, but only our department within the University used it for budgeting. The entire university chose Axiom for the increased scale and capacity. The loading and saving performance of Axiom is slightly better than Vena. Also, Axiom provides more template and report customization. Vena definitely excelled more in their support and staffing and was much cheaper (so I'm told) than Axiom

SAP Analytics Cloud is the only tool to offer extensive planning capabilities. It is the only cloud solution where you have all three planning, predictive and BI solutions in a single framework. Even though the competitors are mature and advanced in providing visualization options, aggressive investment in SAC by SAP is giving a positive outlook for the future.

Return on Investment

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

  • This is only the first year of implementation for the university, so the ROI is yet to be fully seen. For our department, which is the largest in the university, I think the ROI has been fairly high as our users have had more built-in resources within their plan files than they had previously.

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Many steps of paperwork to check and predict the market situation have been eliminated with the help of SAC software and we have direct access to the information that is needed.
  • Identify profitable and low-profit sections on a monthly basis and decide whether to continue or change the use of those sections.
