SAP Roambi

Getting Roambi up to speed in your company certainly is a quick win. After just a few days, several of our reports were mobilized, interactive and automatically updated. Building Roambi reports is not hard to do; the intuitive interface allows virtually any type of user to create his or her own reports.

Well suited:
  1. Dashboarding in a visual way (forget tables)
  2. When sources are SAP and live connectivity is available SAC is perhaps the best option
  3. Can manage many users so the concurrence is really good.
  4. The business content library is dense. That means users can be more autonomous
Less aproppiate:
  1. When some dense reporting is needed through tables
  2. When the source is not SAP

Pros

SAP Roambi

  • Report templates that are easy to learn, use, update and maintain.
  • Great looking reports that stay up-to-date with what Apple is producing. When Apple rolled out the new look and feel to their iOS7 release, Roambi created a brand new set of reports within two weeks to go along with the iOS7 changes.
  • Seamless integration with our existing BI environment, SAP Business Objects XI, 3.1. This drastically reduced the time from purchase to client-ready roll out from months to weeks.

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Visual reporting: it is, by far, the most good-looking and user-friendly SAP reporting tool.
  • Story-telling: it is very easy to create a story using our reports and answer the business questions.
  • Connectivity to SAP sources: if a company has its data on SAP sources, it is very convenient to use SAP Analytics Cloud as the reporting tool.
  • Roadmap looks good: if all the functionalities that are on Roadmap end up being implemented, I personally think SAP Analytics Cloud will be a strong competitor in the market.

Cons

SAP Roambi

  • cardex type of presentation is already innovated in roambi in 2012, even iOS safari browser idea was created from this cardex style
  • blink view is only available for sap and ms sql
  • roambi publisher is very user-friendly and understandable for non technical person as well

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • There are faults in the reading of the entered data. The design of the toolbar tends to be confusing, its use is not recommended for people who do not have knowledge in the area as its learning curve is steep. It is a bit much to set up when dealing with integration points.. I found it not very intuitive and hard to learn its quirky ways. Stellar for the price as well.
  • It is slow and the interface feels like lagging. Less deployment time and headache to maintain.
  • Tough with SAP Analytics Cloud we can expect more connectivity options in the near future, nowadays, other companies give a much better solution to this problem. Moreover, and despite the fact that SAP offers a wider range of measurements and calculations, when it comes to data modeling options SAP cannot give you as many as others will.
  • Despite the evolution of the tool, it came across with some problem with the integration with other databases that not are HANA, like Oracle it has to be a certain version of Oracle, a bunch of sap notes and a lot of patches for the server. Also in places where the connection is not a high-speed internet connection you cannot obtain full capabilities of the tool. The price by user I think is not fair for a web-based application.

I would definitely use Roambi again because of its ease-of-use, but its lack of customization ability makes it difficult to recommend to businesses as business needs are always changing. People are picky, and on the Roambi project, we were not able to fully live up to the customer's expectations, limited by Roambi's preset limitations.

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

SAP Roambi

We have compared Roambi against Business Objects, Reporting Services (on tablet) and Cubeware Cockpit. All those solutions lack in support of touch capabilities and responsiveness. Roambi "feels" just right. There is no training required and users love to explore the application. Compared to Roambi all other solutions feel very technical and hard to understand.

Return on Investment

SAP Roambi

  • Increased insights on customer success metrics (using a Layers report).
  • Higher motivation of employees, better communication towards employees, tighter bonds with the company - because of Roambi Flow. Periodic Flow magazines with analytic capabilities are sent out to the employees, as we value frequent and meaningful contact - both ways.
Timothy Vermeiren profile photo

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.
