SAP Workforce Analytics

I have solved numerous business process problems by automating with SAP Workforce Analytics (WF). I have also used the PM module and routemap functionality to automate other general HR processes not tied to performance or compensation planning. For example, I created electronic versions of an employee change form and used the system to route it to approvers.

SAS Business Intelligence

SAS Business Intelligence is more suited to organizations which are already using SAS as the primary software for their analytics needs. Learning curve is relatively shorter for teams already skilled in BASE SAS. For organizations already working with open source software like Julia and Python, it doesn't make much sense to use SAS BI.

Pros

SAP Workforce Analytics

  • Performance analysis
  • Provides data-driven insights
  • Enables [us] to learn about our employees' improvements.
Patrick Herrera | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Business Intelligence

  • SAS BI makes it very easy to create interactive dashboards even for someone who is not from an IT background. For some specific requirements, basic knowledge of SQL is good enough.
  • A lot of functions have been predefined which makes it very convenient to create dashboards and reports. One doesn't need to be from an IT or a programming background to understand and create dashboards.
  • It supports other programming languages like R and also has a seamless API integration with various data management platforms.

Cons

SAP Workforce Analytics

  • Expensive compared to other analytics tools
  • Can be slow to access and refresh often
  • Big learning curve for new/junior HR specialists
Alexander Cooper | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Business Intelligence

  • There will be a steep learning curve for individuals transitioning from BASE SAS to SAS BI. Our department was filled with experienced SAS programmers, but that did little to prepare us for the challenges of SAS BI. Training will be a must.
  • It is possible, but extremely difficult to customize the web-based portions of SAS BI, like the Information Delivery Portal or Web Report Studio. Having an out-of-the box solution is great to get up and coming quickly, but customizing the look and feel for the web-based users will require some previous web design skills.
  • In order to fully appreciate the features of SAS BI, you absolutely need someone on your team with a background in platform administration, security, web design or some other basic IT skills. Alternatively, you may just need strong support from your IT department. Simply having a group of individuals experienced in BASE SAS will not cut it.

There is no other product that can match SAS. There are some products that can compare to ETL but lack the analytics that SAS has. Others can perform a limited set of analytical procedures but lack the data processing that comes with SAS. Using thin client allows users to access data whenever they have an internet connection.

SAS BI is good for creating reports and dashboards and then sharing it with the users. It also has ability to manage access to the reports and dashboards but somehow with most of the world moving to open source languages R, Python and Julia, SAS BI feels to be archaic in terms of feature set and integrations it allow[s]. Also, comparing it with other Business Intelligence tools like Tableau and Microsoft BI, the functionality of SAS BI is very limited and doesn't justify the pricing.

When you call tech support, you are immediately routed to a person who can answer your question. Often they can answer on the spot. However, if they cannot, you are given a track number and then followed up with. There have been times when I have had multiple track numbers open and they will actually TRACK YOU DOWN to ensure that your problem has been resolved. Issues do not fall into black holes with SAS. They are also willing to do a WebEx with you to diagnose the problem by seeing your environment, which is always helpful.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Workforce Analytics

One of the biggest challenges Oracle HCM Cloud has is that Oracle is still in the development stage, or acquisitions phase, where they are attempting to buy other solutions/companies to better their cloud solution. The product just before Taleo, Fusion, lacked the ability to have all of the necessary apps within the solution. Having said that, SAP Workforce Analytics, has all of what a corporation needs, even though, it is not an organic solution, the overall solution provides all of what its customers had asked for and then some.

SAS Business Intelligence

SAS Business Intelligence is not the cream of the crop for business intelligence applications, but it is not far behind. The software is generally easier to apply than most other business intelligence software. Additionally, SAS Business Intelligence runs smoothly in the background when making real-time updates. With that said, the software is not as efficient of many of the other business intelligence software applications that have been on the market for longer than this one.

Return on Investment

SAP Workforce Analytics

  • This tool enables us to create predictive models for future behaviors because it offers accurate insights.
  • The accurate insights allows us to learn the areas we can help our employees improve.
Patrick Herrera | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAS Business Intelligence

  • Having a stable reporting environment. That is, everyone is using the same starting data, thus alleviating differences for timing, etc.
  • Allows for a simple reporting environment for executives which do not have the technical knowledge to gather the data
