Having used sap cloud analytics for some time, It has been progressively helpful in analytic features, and it can work pretty fine for marketers and business management especially reports analysis of some key data sets and many more business operations.

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

  • Interpretation of data, use of templates and adjustment of the same presenting in real time the information in reports in a much more dynamic way.
  • The analysis of commercial intelligence data is essential for the creation of multipurpose panels, this being a practical tool for our commercial team.
  • Presentation of multiple graphs, predictors through performance analysis and forecasts through temporary graphs has been of great complementarity for an exhaustive analysis of our commercial work.

SAP

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Usability

    SAP

    Because, in my opinion, SAP Analytics Cloud ( SAC ) has a very high level of usability. Another convenience offered by SAC is access that can be done anywhere. For example, you have to work outside the office but still, need to access the SAC. As long as you have an internet connection, SAC can be fully accessed.

    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

All-time availability of charts to those who have access to parts and especially, responsive and proactive.

    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.
