Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

Discoverer is well suited as a reporting tool where data integration doesn't play a major role. Discoverer suits very well situations where a user has to run a query every day. Discoverer reports can be scheduled and the user can just view the data instead of running the query manually. Also, Discoverer takes away the pain of managing the database credentials. Discoverer is not well suited to situations where the whole enterprise wants to view the same dashboard. Discoverer is more of a departmental BI tool. Discoverer doesn't offer many options to integrate data unless one has to create and handle integration using PL/SQL.

SAP Analytics Cloud is great for collaborative planning. It allows users to work together on plans, discuss specific adjustments, and to create planning processes for other users to follow. Its BI capabilities also make it stand out among the competition, and it's possible to create a very customized, user-friendly planning experience.

Pros

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

  • SQL friendly which allows for fast adoption for those users who know how to write in SQL. This makes integration with other programs much easier.
  • Accessing data is very fast even with larger data sets.
  • The layout is clean and organized similar to a spreadsheet which allows for easier viewing and analyzing of the data.
Joseph R. Sweeney | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Functional desing. Easy to learn and develop
  • Live connectivity to SAP sources so the data is not needed to be in the cloud (important for some business for data privacity)
  • SAC is working in different functionalities
  • SAC is growing in a scheduled way so you can know which roadmap will be the following months
  • Easy SSO with SAP sources

Cons

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

  • There is always room for more scalability and optimization of performance.
  • Oracle BI changes a lot from version to version. A smoother transition into a new version would be very helpful.
  • Oracle BI's reporting tool is a little hard to use at first. The UI/UX of the tool can use improvement.
Jatel Desai | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Performance: in some scenarios, the tool has big troubles in its performance when the volume of data is quite big (mainly with tables and filters).
  • Maturity: as it is a quite new tool, it is not mature enough to satisfy some business necessities. Also, the tool has some bugs which should be basic for a reporting tool.
  • Mobility: I believe mobile apps for SAP Analytics Cloud should be improved (both for Android and iOs devices). They are not as good as the web version. Moreover, stories for mobile devices have to be created in a particular template, which can be annoying in some cases.

SAC support allows you to ensure that your company has the specialized support during and after implementation, which means that your company will not stop its operations due to the operation of the system, since, in case of doubts or problems with the system , the team of experts will solve them in the shortest possible time.
Continuous support is very important, since it allows to obtain the maximum performance of the solution and to obtain a balance between the functionality, the performance of the tool and an efficient support service.
SAP has a specialized team dedicated exclusively to providing advice to support staff and end users, solving technical and operational problems and providing support in the additional requirements is an added value for your business that gives way to continuous improvement and maximum use of the system.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

Discoverer was already in place when I joined the company so I was not involved in the selection process. However, I have been involved in the review of Discoverer as compared to alternatives including Business Objects, OBIEE, and SSRS. On a cost benefit analysis Discoverer always came out on top. Changing to another tool never provided enough additional functionality to overcome the cost of conversion and ongoing maintenance.
Glen Norman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

This tool does not match up to its competitors like microstrategy and Tableau when it comes to data visualization. It takes more time and effort creating dashboards and building schema objects in this tool. It is not as easy to learn as other competitive tools. Implementation is also not as smooth as other data visualization tools and platforms available on the market. Creating ad-hoc reports is not as quick and easy compared to its competitors.

Return on Investment

Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer (discontinued)

  • We have used Discoverer to respond to state sales and use tax audits and saved the company more than the cost of the product. Discoverer has thus assisted in our objective of managing costs.
  • Discoverer is used to provide reports for EEOC reporting assisting our goal of complying with all government requirements.
Glen Norman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Multiple SAP sources can be connected into one software.
  • No lag time with data or analytics. Crucial for our real estate market which is always changing.
  • The only negative ROI would be the training and steep learning curve we had to invest in this.
