The system is not always intuitive to a new user. However with some upfront training it is easy to catch on. A lot of the management is left in the hands of the users, in our company that would be finance. To us that is a great benefit, however, that may not work in all situations.

Having used sap cloud analytics for some time, It has been progressively helpful in analytic features, and it can work pretty fine for marketers and business management especially reports analysis of some key data sets and many more business operations.

Pros

SAP

  • Dynamic reporting and consolidation of information from disconnected sources
  • Adaptability to needs of shifting business initiatives

SAP

  • Interpretation of data, use of templates and adjustment of the same presenting in real time the information in reports in a much more dynamic way.
  • The analysis of commercial intelligence data is essential for the creation of multipurpose panels, this being a practical tool for our commercial team.
  • Presentation of multiple graphs, predictors through performance analysis and forecasts through temporary graphs has been of great complementarity for an exhaustive analysis of our commercial work.

Cons

SAP

  • SRC had a delay in information until the month's operations officially closed and the data was fed into the system. Other products that I have used allow you to see activity throughout the month. Knowing that it isn’t final, you can still get a sense of how revenues/expenses are stacking up for the month, etc. In addition, other operational metrics, like Average Daily Census, Admissions, etc. should be able to be tracked daily, rather than having to wait until the month is over.

SAP

  • Maximizing the usage of screen real estate.
  • Better performance with multiple widgets.
  • Ability to handle larger volume.
  • Ability to paginate charts and tables showing only top entries.
  • Ability to connect stores to different data models and ability to change the source for a data model. Without this, every time the dashboard needs to be rebuilt when the backend view needs to be changed.

    Usability

    I could train users to use the Business Warehouse within an hour or two. Also very easy to create reports and send web links to view the report. Exporting to Excel/Word/etc. was very simple and had good formatting.

    Because, in my opinion, SAP Analytics Cloud ( SAC ) has a very high level of usability. Another convenience offered by SAC is access that can be done anywhere. For example, you have to work outside the office but still, need to access the SAC. As long as you have an internet connection, SAC can be fully accessed.

    Since the implementation stage, the support team has been very helpful and assisting. Even in the later stages, the tech team had quite a rapid response. In general, SAP has provided us with great customer support, let it be for a specific product of SAP or for integration of different modules.

    SAC is a simple solution ad it works fine when connecting it to other SAP tools. On the other hand, connecting it to third party solutions brings difficulties when there's no previous design and the objetives are not clear. It is really important to integrate Business users from the start to provide with valuable business insights

    Alternatives Considered

    SAP

    Business Objects SRC is more flexible than other products and that is especially important in a company where each division is completely different in how they operate, their KPIs, and their operating functions. It allows finance to decide what information is important at that time and does not take months of IT resources to meet management's immediate informational needs. Reporting and budgeting is easily updated when there is an addition or a deletion of a line of business. Finance is allowed to dice the information in any way to satisfy the current needs of the business.

    I like this tool is cloud-based architecture, no desktop installation required. Device agnostic. A single platform for BI, planning predictive snd app development. Live connectivity. Seamless Integrations with data sources. Great support team. Single source for everything. UI is very user friendly and easy for the new Users. All-time availability of charts to those who have access to parts and especially, responsive and proactive.

    Return on Investment

    SAP

    • Thus far the BI team has been playing catch-up since our SAP implementation, as a good many important customer facing reports were left out of the implementation as a requirement for go-live.
    • The scalability and SAP data conversion are the real value.

    SAP

    • Helped us getting the exact user interests when we added surveys and some UX tweaks which were later linked to SAP.
    • Helps my organisation to create reports using real-time data which is captured from different data sources.
    • It has enabled us to explore and highlight days along with graphical representations easily.
