SAP Analytics Cloud is our primary tool for business decision making. We have implemented multiple modules interlinked with each other these include cost management, Operations & risk management. Data visualization has become quite easier and the dashboards can be access restricted making it suitable for multiple levels. The suite provides a unified approach to organizational analytics.

As a sponsoring editor, one of my job roles entails analyzing sales data to make financial projections for products in my portfolio. SAP Analytics Cloud helps make forecasts in my business proposals using real world data for accurate projections. It also helps me predict financial outcomes based on decisions taken, as well as create budgets keeping in mind the financials of the department as a whole. As a cloud-based product, I also appreciate that it works seamlessly while I collaborate with colleagues around the world.

In our company, we handle numerous part lists according to client, dimension, region, and company using SAP Analytics Cloud. We oversee additional departmental data as well. We are moving from several outdated ERP systems to a single SAP system.

SAP Analytics is currently used across all departments (finance/HR/sales) of client I support. We have designed various stories and applications as well on sales/finance/HR data showcasing different KPIs, Top N contributors, Geo-Map data points. There is not much additional work needed as the same story can easily be seen using mobile or tabs by business users. Business users loved the smart capabilities of SAC wherein they type any query in Natural Languages and it produces relevant graphs to users.

Recently I have done POC on HR data for them to identity probable employees who could leave organization. The POC went well so we are asked to implement the same. I used built classification-in for addressing Attrition problem which resulted in 83% accuracy. Client has asked us to do a POC using regression if we can predict number of copies to be printed considering various factors like historical data (sports event/elections/or other catastrophic events).

Suggestion:
However I feel SAC can be more effective if more modelling capabilities are provided. Integration with R is good but SAP should think of Python integration as well, reason being Python is more user friendly and capable of doing all what R does.

We are using this to forecast consumer attitudes about goods in order to build on what is planned for the future or to improve customer experience.
This is also, helping us to do better reporting to management. these reports create by transforming data saving more time while taking some decisions.
The option to utilize built-in algorithms or expand using R has real deal.

SAC is used mainly for our logistics reporting for limited group of users. I personally work in the used admin side and the main issue with SAC is that it's not GRC compliant, or at least we are not aware how it could be connected, thus SAC user administrations requires additional work that is not in the GRC scope
