SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP Analytics Cloud is great for collaborative planning. It allows users to work together on plans, discuss specific adjustments, and to create planning processes for other users to follow. Its BI capabilities also make it stand out among the competition, and it's possible to create a very customized, user-friendly planning experience.

SAP HANA Cloud

One of the advantages of SAP HANA Cloud is that it can easily be used to extend your current on-premise HANA system. We haven't tested it yet in a large scale project for instance as the database for an S/4 HANA implementation. This requires further investigation at this time.

Pros

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Functional desing. Easy to learn and develop
  • Live connectivity to SAP sources so the data is not needed to be in the cloud (important for some business for data privacity)
  • SAC is working in different functionalities
  • SAC is growing in a scheduled way so you can know which roadmap will be the following months
  • Easy SSO with SAP sources

SAP HANA Cloud

  • It's the way to go for the foreseeable future if SAP HANA is your platform of choice
  • We like the features currently available, but are anxiously awaiting for more on-prem features to make it over to the offering
  • Multi-Cloud deployment options is a huge benefit

Cons

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • Performance: in some scenarios, the tool has big troubles in its performance when the volume of data is quite big (mainly with tables and filters).
  • Maturity: as it is a quite new tool, it is not mature enough to satisfy some business necessities. Also, the tool has some bugs which should be basic for a reporting tool.
  • Mobility: I believe mobile apps for SAP Analytics Cloud should be improved (both for Android and iOs devices). They are not as good as the web version. Moreover, stories for mobile devices have to be created in a particular template, which can be annoying in some cases.
Alex Gutierrez | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA Cloud

  • Remote source connections through SDA to other databases like SQL Server and Oracle are no longer possible. The only way to go would be through SDI, which isn't as optimized and might require additional license costs.
  • If you currently use features like dynamic tiering or R server integration, you need to really look if this is the offering for you at this point in time.
  • The flexibility of downsizing, which is a big advantage of working in the cloud, is at this moment not available (yet).

1. Only tool with all three type of analytics wherein one can plan, predictive and check existing descriptive reports to understand status quo of business.2. With handy prediction capabilities it has provided consultant ability to do predictive analytics without knowing technical know-how of working of backend algorithms. In case someone is well groomed in R, SAC provides integration.

Usability has been solid sofar, as well as the ease of setting up the SAP HANA Cloud instance. If you are a current user of HANA on-prem, you should feel straight at home.

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 Analytics Cloud

This tool does not match up to its competitors like microstrategy and Tableau when it comes to data visualization. It takes more time and effort creating dashboards and building schema objects in this tool. It is not as easy to learn as other competitive tools. Implementation is also not as smooth as other data visualization tools and platforms available on the market. Creating ad-hoc reports is not as quick and easy compared to its competitors.

SAP HANA Cloud

We have evaluated other offerings like SAP HEC and HANA as a service in the SAP Cloud Platform and we see that SAP HANA Cloud is the main focus of SAP's vision for the future. This is the main argument why we're leaning towards using this offering. Especially the quarterly releases of updates and new features is a positive criterium for us.

Return on Investment

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.

  • As this is a primary evaluation of the SAP HANA Cloud, I can't make any comments on the ROI of using this offering
