After launching a new contact pathway in a help experience, Mode Analytics can help provide insight into the sentiments from users as well as the engagement with any written content. Numeric outputs are easier to manage, whereas more nuanced/emotional feedback is sometimes hard to quantify (though not impossible if you get creative).

SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio

SAP Business Objects is well suited for the scenarios where most of the logic is written on the backend (in some other application) and one can expose that data for the business users through Business Objects. It is easy to schedule the report, format the same and download the data for analysis. Some simple calculations can also be added on the BO side as needed It is not very appropriate for complex calculations/logic.

  • Design studio should have a click to go for selection of other data source as well .
  • Many charts and design can also be added which are missing as of now
  • There should be more inbuilt functions that can be used to handle the data on the Reporting side.

For the advanced user already familiar with Python. It is just the same tool, already managed and connected to the data.

SAP Business Objects is a great tool for operational reporting. It provides a lot of capabilities for scheduling the reports for end users as well as for Adhoc data analysis by business users. One can easily format a report in SAP BO. The tool is not very difficult to learn for both End users and Developers.

We used both Qlik and Mode at our organization. The mode was used a quick analysis SQL tool while Qlik was our enterprise BI solution.

The SAP design studio is tightly bound with the SAP data source which is good for performance, maintenance, and scalability. There are lots of add-ons are there in Design Studio which makes it more interactive in data visualization and analysis. Data binding from the data sources option is great when dealing components like with charts and cross tabs the mapping of an alias is automatically done.
