SAP Analytics Cloud

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.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

BI was used to manage our parts and machines. It can be used to manage your factory or systems to properly allocate items to select places. However the system does not respond well, and it can scale well provided you have an actual team knowledgeable in this field. Once you get it set up it works well, but of course, if you try and add new implementations, it can become hazardous to your business.

Pros

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Enterprise planning capabilities available on SAP Analytics Cloud make it easy to connect transactions in our daily insights and easily accessible on the dashboard.
  • With SAP Analytics Cloud, it has been effective to collect disjointed data from multiple repositories, which we connect in one cloud tool to ease analysis.
  • SAP Analytics Cloud has reduced data scientists' intervention by allocating self-service data analysis to our team.
Andrew Spisak | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • This software is easy to initially learn, and very powerful in producing reusable reports.
  • It is much faster than my company's internal manual queries. The ability to build off of a saved query and share queries to other users is a great positive.
  • My favorite part is that you can run queries in the background and it does not interfere with your current work or slow your computer down.

Cons

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.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • The installation can be very complex and time-consuming, it requires a lot of planning and foresight as to what role the software will play in the organization.
  • The software has a relatively large learning curve that takes dedicated users months to get comfortable with, the UI is a bit intimidating for new users.
  • SAP could organize their help better, it can be difficult to find dependable solutions to issues via their website and support channels.

The institution has decided to move in a different direction, and will be using MSBI for reporting. I have been very happy with the Business Objects suite of tools, and will continue to use them heavily until we make the transition.

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.

From a server and client side perspective. the Business Intelligence Platform provides a foundation for all aspects of content development, distribution, analysis, collaboration and self service. Ease of use from targeted content delivery through controlled accessibility. Content exporting in the format of the users choice. Scheduling for internal or external delivery. Public and private folders for secure content access when requied. Web based for viewing on the users device of choice without the need to download additional applications.

When we implemented 3.1, we had a tough time managing the system: It took almost a year to stabilize.

With 4.0, we want to roll out to more users, and are holding back because of fears about the performance issue

Overall, the tool (Web Intelligence 4.2) is fast and solid. One issue is a dependability on JAVA for a full feature report creation/edit capabilities (as opposed to limited HTML option). Second, planned end of JAVA support by major browsers (Chrome is already not supporting JAVA applet).

There is a strong community, user forum, and knowledge base available to users. They are always quick to respond and helpful when we need them. SAP support is providing BI assistance. They can answer questions about essential staff, but not complex structures. In some cases, we received feedback that our request was impossible to implement; however, later, we discovered other ways to accomplish it.

Hire specialists and experienced staff. Mix some beginners so that everyone is not a leader but a learner too. Plan well; architect well; break down implementation in small steps and move towards larger steps. Create a centralized and authorized SAP Business Objects implementation team.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Analytics Cloud

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.

Some organizations use Spotfire which is far more advanced in terms of its analytical capabilities vs. Lumira/PA etc. but the sharing/storage side of the BI Platform is far superior and much better managed. The ability to create user groups, access levels etc. on BI Platform helps to keep the platform secure.

Return on Investment

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • We were able to enjoy unlimited augmented analytics for free for 90 days before purchasing paid version.
  • Business users in our organization make better and informed decisions by exploring data across the enterprise by filtering and drilling into information.
  • With prebuilt data models, use cases and data domains, it is easy to automate data cleansing by alerting errors and duplication.
Kelly McConnell | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

  • By generating and distributing reports in a timely manner, we were able to save millions of dollars for the company which otherwise would not have been visible.
  • Almost realtime dashboard, saved the company a huge amount by showing the outages and kept the company from buying a tool to do just that.
  • It showed the customers who were not paying the bills and were missing in the system due to some loophole. This was visible by doing reporting on the theft usage of electricity.
