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.

timeXtender

TimeXtender has worked really well with our customers who have different data sources using complex data types in large quantities requiring a DW-like solution that can consolidate all data sources at one-HUB. TimeXtender does this well, and provides automation capabilities, the ability to easily handle slowly changing dimensions, handing data lineage and data security very well. TimeXtender has the ability to be very customizable, allowing the HUB to grow as your business does. TimeXtender's customer support team is super helpful and will work with you throughout your implementation to make sure you reach success with the product. The ROI for timeXtender versus competing products (there aren't many that do what timeXtender does) shows the investment to be worthwhile for the majority of organizations in today's data-rich corporate world.

timeXtender

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.

timeXtender

  • Product Marketing: As implementers and resellers of this technology, we loved it. But, convincing clients who had not previously heard of TX/Discovery Hub was more difficult than it could have been if the company had a larger marketing force behind it.
  • Relatively New to Market: it creates a learning curve for early implementers.
  • More information should be published on timeXtender's website about product lines, including testimonials.

    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.

    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.

    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
