SAP Analytics: truly exemplary service and the best among others.

For companies that find themselves with the need to acquire a software that is effective for the visualization of data in a precise manner, I recommend 100% SAP Analytics since it is a tool of very easy use and of great availability at all times. It offers the guarantee of integrating itself to different software or commercial applications, which is something very advantageous in this system, Its price is very accessible. In general, this tool is very good.

A planning tool with BI capabilities

For planning, I've also used Quantrix Modeler. Quantrix is a lot closer to Excel (which makes adaptation quicker), and it has great ad-hoc capabilities. There is a lot of freedom in the way the data layout is created, and what data can be entered.

SAP Analytics Cloud is a lot more restrictive in that sense. (For instance, you can only enter numbers in data cells, which requires some workarounds.) However, it is a lot more powerful (because it uses cloud computing), it has better planning-specific capabilities (such as spreading and data actions), and it can be used as a BI tool. The basic version of Quantrix is also not as good in terms of collaborative planning, as users cannot work simultaneously.

Great tool for interactive dashboarding

SAC definitely has better visuals and faster calculations than similar SAP products - Business Objects. Though SAC is not as mature a product as yet, and therefore BO has more functionality.

SAC offers more advanced dashboarding than Qlik and Tableau.

MS Power BI feels like a more mature product than SAC, but SAC seems to be a better solution if you already have some other SAP products. And SAC looks very good for planning solutions.

As it has been released as a Beta version in the past days, I have not the chance to evaluate them together. Both products look pretty similar. I would like to use it more to see what are the main differences.

SAC BI Reporting is affordable, especially for companies with a limited IT budget. It is "easy" to integrate it with the ERP.

SAP seems to be giving its highest focus to SAC over the Lumira suite, so we think it’s likely a better path for us to go down as we were not entrenched with other tools. SAC performance during design and consume time seems much better than our experience with Lumira.

We are system integrator partner. Customers select or evaluate business intelligence tools. We work with customers to perform proof of concept or we come with a point of view on SAC. The product is relatively new in market. With SAP ecosystem and integration capability it's good to evaluate the SAC capability and its integration with SAP Business Objects.

For example, if you wanted to understand which of your customers would respond to a marketing offer, you would need to have a response yes/no column in your dataset. This column is known as your target variable and it represents the outcome you’re trying to predict. Once you’ve selected your historical data and target variable, Smart Predict takes care of the rest.

Once your model is created, you’ll be presented with a model debrief with key information on the model accuracy, applicability to new data, key drivers, and more. At this point, you can use this version of your model to determine your predictions or make a copy and experiment by tweaking the model to drive better accuracy and/or stability.

The smart insight and smart discovery features were a big seller in addition to the predictive scenarios. In addition to that, the fact that users can write their own stories and build their own PPTs is great.

In my opinion, if your company uses most of SAP ecosystem, it is better to choose an analytical tool from SAP such as the Analytics Cloud. It will provide seamless integration with the ERP as well as a clear evolution from our BO.
