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 BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation)

SAP BPC is well suited for complex planning and consolidations needs where the underlying transactional system is SAP ECC. It suits well if the organization has separate teams with BPC, ABAP, BW, Basis, Hana skillset. SAP BPC is less appropriate for organizations using Agile methodology. It is not suitable for organizations in a hyper-growth cycle as the installation and implementation is time-consuming. It will not work for organizations where the planning and budgeting needs keep changing frequently. The UI of SAP BPC is not very intuitive and very difficult to set up a dynamic dashboard for senior executives and officials of CxO.

Pros

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • It has been effective to collect, connect, integrate and analyze data from multiple data sources to one secure platform.
  • With SAP Analytics Cloud, we are able to make informed decisions by allowing employees to access data on their own via self-service.
  • SAP Analytics Cloud offers robust data modeling and preparation capabilities that make it easy to automate data cleansing that notifies us [of] errors and duplicates.

SAP BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation)

  • SAP BPC is real time data. You can send information into the system and see it reflected in your reports immediately. Other systems may require a manual push into a reporting system.
  • SAP BPC is a shared reporting tool, so multiple users can be working in a model/environment at the same time, real time. This is especially helpful if your workbooks incorporated multiple processes requiring multiple users to get into the same model.
  • SAP BPC is a powerful tool designed to help all facets of the company, from cash flow to capital expenditures to headcount management to financial planning to consolidation.

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 BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation)

  • Being from a law firm, the system needed a lot of custom tailoring in order to fit our full needs (although many companies could say the same thing). Although the ability to highly customize the system to the company's needs is a positive, it frequently results in the system responding in unexplainable and unrepeatable ways which negatively impacts and slows the budget process. Because of the sporadic nature and variety of the issues, we are unable to repeat them on cue and therefore cannot nail down a solution.

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.

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 BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation)

With Hyperion we struggled as it didn’t have integrated planning and consolidation, whereas BPC does have it. BPC is easier for reporting as it is Excel-based. Also BPC has prepackaged business process flows that helped a lot. Hyperion on the other hand has a faster response time for user queries or report generation.

Return on Investment

SAP Analytics Cloud

  • We have been able to empower our team with all cloud analytics capabilities that enable them to analyze data without incurring extra costs for hiring data scientists.
  • We have been able to make future cost planning such as loan borrowing by incorporating financial planning tools.
  • Additionally, data consolidation in one platform is cost-effective compared to holding data in multiple clouds and on-premises applications.
Andrew Spisak | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation)

  • When originally implemented (as the predecessor product Outlooksoft) BPC took ASU from trying to budget and forecast for a 2B enterprise out of spreadsheets and into a far more consolidated tool. It has saved us considerable time over the years and paid for itself several times over.
  • BPC also allows us to present our budget in multiple different views to support management, board and departmental reporting.
