    I highly recommend SAP Analytics Cloud if your team is considering purchasing an analytics tool. Real-time data updates are essential for any reporting, and SAC is an expert in this league. Anytime is better than other analytics players, and it's good for small or large both firms.

    SAP BW is best for: 1. Large enterprises 2. Enterprises with 3+ legacy systems with entrenched users (politically difficult to merge) 3. Enterprises with employees who can understand both the technical capabilities of SAP BW and the needs of the business users - ability to speak both languages, otherwise the program could be unwieldy and potentially underutilized (it's not particularly inexpensive) SAP BW is less appropriate for: 1. Small enterprises 2. Enterprises who have well established, same location, CRM and UFS - the integration of data analysis will be easier and less expensive with other solutions 3. HANA

    • It tracks bin locations for parts which can be really helpful.
    • SAP Business Warehouse tells you who has a part checked out so you can find it.
    • It shows current parts shortages so buyers are flagged to get parts on order based on current demand.

    Cons

    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.

    SAP

    • Support comes slow. This is not a limitation of the software itself but could be a symptom from the local office. Once we get support everything works along smoothly.
    • It is always important to review the instructions. This is not a system that does well initially with personalization without review of standard procedures. A log of time can be lost if the technicians and programmers working with the data are not following correct procedures.

      Usability

      SAP

      SAP Analytics Cloud is user-friendly overall, but it definitely requires training on how to navigate all of the menus and how to create charts. It can be hard to remember which features are in the builder sidebar vs which features are accessed via the chart's widget itself. After using SAP Analytics Cloud regularly I have become more familiar with this but I do still wish it was consolidated into one place.

      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

      • Exporting of data and reports to Excel is very easy for the end user to interpret and manipulate.
      • Negatively, the speed at which BW retrieves data and reports is very slow and out of date.
      • Addition of daughter application HANA has helped this aging application stay afloat for a few more years. Overall it has been a great tool but it's showing its age very fast.
