SAP Analytics Cloud

1. SAP Analytics cloud is best suited for organization with heavy to medium range of data as this software works best if appropriate data is provided. However, for small organizations this software is not suited as there you can do the manually.2. For any organization which has to provide data to client in an attractive formats, this software is well suited as the data reports can be customized in any form required and the data visualization is very impressive3. For any organization involved in Business forecasting and statistics this software is very useful

In the on-premise world of things, it ruled the world. The ease with which it can be customized and the language support it provides is simply amazing. Their landscape and transport management is brilliant. It saves millions of dollars for huge enterprises. I only wish that their support model can be enhanced further.

Pros

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Provides answers to business questions in just a few clicks and creates, enriched visualizations with insights from Big Data discovery and uncovers the intelligence needed to take action.
  • SAP Analytics Cloud helps us keep all those required in the loop—colleagues and external partners, through the very devices and apps that they are familiar with.
  • It integrates existing business apps to make more data available from a central location.
Roshan Rai | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP ERP

  • Organizational resource management and integration of different departments with each other as a software automation
  • We have Access to all insights and analytics data from anywhere
  • It doesn't matter how big your organization is, it supports everything from small companies to giant high-tech organizations, and they all have access to data at very high speeds.
  • If you use the web and cloud version, the initial costs will be greatly reduced and even a small start-up small company can enjoy the benefits of SAP ERP.

Cons

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • I prefer the output of information and visual charts to be translatable into all languages, especially RTL languages, and this feature should be added to all SAP products by default, and graphic themes and fonts appropriate to that language should also be used for it. This provides us with a step towards localization as well as better communication with the audience in seminars and meetings.
  • Relevant references, guides, video tutorials in plain language, and the hint should be included in all pages and different sections of the software so that the novice user can remind it again.
  • Mobile UI design should be better than this and have the ability to download and display more output file types.

SAP ERP

  • SAP sometimes gets slow whenever most of the people in the company simultaneously use it
  • Hopefully they would extend background job processing to all tables in SAP since it sometimes goes time out whenever extracting large historical data (ex. 5 years expense data)

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

The usability of SAP Analytics Cloud is perfectly fine for all the components it offers in the tool. The initial setups and integrations of various modules is easy and can be managed well in longer run. The features are useful for any business setup and the teams working on the tool usually doesn't face any problems in routine tasks.

SAP ERP is highly efficient with handling both large and complex organizations and it has the ability to handle different departments within the company and the data security is fool proof. It also automatically enables the data to be available between different modules such as SD and MM or HCM or IM and QM so users do not have to use multiple applications to run their everyday business.

SAP support customer system is very well streamlined for all of it's products and same is the case for SAP Analytics Cloud. It also has a good community support available on the internet forums, so the overall support of SAP Analytics Cloud is very good in my opinion and customers get a well worth support in case of any issue.

Well, I've had several scenarios where it was evident that they simply buy time. At the same time, their Product Support and Implementation teams are most likely not in sync. What's said by a member of implementation may not hold good when you refer the same thing with a member of the support 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.

SAP is totally integrated as are many of its greatest competitors, but the level of detail in the integration between modules puts SAP heads and shoulders above all others. Granted, the SAP implementation can be much more difficult to perform, but in the long run, the amount of effort you put in will result in excellent usability. After using Oracle's E-Business Suite for over 20 years, we did a due diligence search that lasted over 18 months before making a decision to go with SAP. This was a result of our Oracle system being made "un-upgradeable" due to a custom module that Oracle Consulting actually built for us. We were stuck in an old version of their database that would not work upon patching to the next version.
