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.

This system has excellent cloud data analytics capabilities and easy functionalities for data visualization. SAP Analytics Cloud deployment on [the] cloud is excellent after the user is guided by their technical help team and the ability to manage project resources is excellent. The reports creation with the package is very quick.

Pros

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

  • Dynamic reporting and consolidation of information from disconnected sources
  • Adaptability to needs of shifting business initiatives
Daniel Guzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • It has been effective to collect, connect, integrate and analyze data from multiple data sources to one secure platform.
  • With SAP Analytics Cloud, we are able to make informed decisions by allowing employees to access data on their own via self-service.
  • SAP Analytics Cloud offers robust data modeling and preparation capabilities that make it easy to automate data cleansing that notifies us [of] errors and duplicates.

Cons

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

  • 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.
AJ Senff | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Sometimes the uploading of data requires a lot of time and [a] very fast internet connection which results in failure of data uploading.
  • Little guidance in the form of reference/hints regarding what type of data to be uploaded should be provided on various sections of the software to make it more user-friendly for [the] layman.
  • Data Modeling needs to be polished a little more. Data models often require complete reworking for minor changes such as changes in [the] format required.

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.

Integration of multiple data resources and creating reporting files in desired formats is easy with SAP Analytics Cloud. The dashboard UI is a little bit more populated and at the start, users get confused a bit, but after a little use and getting through the processes, it became easy to understand and manage.

Very long reports in SRC would take a long time to run (several minutes). However, shorter reports could be run quickly.

This is more a function of the training I received from the systems experts in my organization, not training from Business Objects/SAP. The training was rushed, without an agenda, and didn’t meet my needs as a user.

Alternatives Considered

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

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.

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

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

  • 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.
Daniel Guzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • We have been able to empower our team with all cloud analytics capabilities that enable them to analyze data without incurring extra costs for hiring data scientists.
  • We have been able to make future cost planning such as loan borrowing by incorporating financial planning tools.
  • Additionally, data consolidation in one platform is cost-effective compared to holding data in multiple clouds and on-premises applications.
