    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.

    The availability of the leading and non-leading ledgers meets our financial reporting requirements and helps us fulfill both the stock exchange requirements at the parent company level and country-specific requirements at the operating entity level. In addition, the Open Item Managed Account feature ensures that reporting teams optimize their efforts on subsystem-driven accounts to achieve accounting concurrency.

    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

    • 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

      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.

      Support Rating

      SAP

      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.

      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.

      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

      SAP is a great tool which we use to analyze and forecasting future of transactions in our business. It has drastically reduced the time of analyzing huge data. Overall it's an excellent and most powerful tool for business intelligence algorithms and data visualization which is easy to use and helps in making effective decisions making.

      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.
