Not mature enough to handle SAP Data Migration. SAP removed the trial version from the Cloud appliance library. I believe this will be the future ETL tool for all SAP Data Migration, Integration & Warehousing Projects. SAP needs to have more attention & address all gaps rapidly.
  • Data Quality Management
  • Data Science Capability
  • Data Orchestration
  • SAP S/4HANA BAPI, IDOC, API Adapters
  • ETL Components to perform complex transformation
  • User Friendly, Drag & Drop functionality with no code
It's less appropriate for S/4HANA Data migration, this might work only with S/4 Migration Cockpit. Suitable for Data Quality Management, easily integrated with SAP Saas Products such as SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP HANA Cloud etc; Complement with each other
SAP recently removed the trial version from CAL. I don't see any recent development, adding more functionality to the product components.

We use SAP Data Intelligence mainly for Data visualization, Export data, and Data filtering. We use it across all our departments and it has enabled us to streamline all our critical processes. It is a robust tool for controlling and assessing data that helps us in making informed decisions. Overall it has been beneficial for our business outcomes.
  • Data Visualization
  • Report generation is convenient.
  • Data can be easily exported to excel sheets.
  • It is not the best when it comes to scalability.
  • Lack of provision for a free trial.
  • Customer service is not up to the mark.
SAP Data Intelligence has served us for several purposes mainly for processing big data. It has allowed us to bridge the gap between the Information technology and Business side within our organization. It can easily work with both structured and unstructured data. Analytical solutions like reporting and auditing have been made hassle-free due to SAP Data Intelligence.
The overall support of SAP Data Intelligence in comparison to other SAP modules is not up to the mark and should be improved. while implementing the platform we faced a few challenges and could not receive a timely response. Although there is a delay in response the knowledge of the tech support team is commendable.

ETL is the primary focus. Connections and validations between all sources of information. When it comes to large data management, SAP is a must-have. We were able to cut down on processing time and increase the output of our data team as a result.
  • Additionally, you have the option of exporting your filtered data to Excel for additional analysis.
  • AP As far as software goes, it's well-known and rock-solid.
  • Has both on-premise and private cloud deployment options.
  • Only a few posts a month.
  • SAP offers free trials for other services, such as SAC, but not for SAP Data Intelligence, which does not have a free tier.
  • Occasionally, it appears to be older software.
It is possible to decrease the integration between SAP ERP and the GUI system by using SAP DI. A wide spectrum of integration and a dramatic improvement in the business will be achieved.
A potential cloud ERP solution provided by SAP Data Intelligence will allow our company to thrive in the future. Using SAP Data Intelligence's enhanced capabilities, we can increase our organization's productivity and efficiency by automating routine processes and making better use of resources. Using SAP Data is beneficial to our company, we believe.

SAP Data Intelligence helps us in providing nice data analytics with our data. Usually, we have extracted the data from multiple sources. We required day-to-day data analytics for our customers. This saves a lot of time and effort in providing the right and efficient data analytics and visualization of our data with minimal effort.
  • Nice and centralized dashboard for monitoring the data and KPI's.
  • The breadth of services provided.
  • The consulting team provides the right approach of your data and how it is used for better data analytics.
  • Overall product functionalities and product roadmap.
  • Customer service and support.
  • Improvement in efficiency to upload large volume of data.
  • Addition of advanced visualizations such as charts, graphs, etc.
  • Centralized and ad-hoc reports shall be improved.
  • Data integration with other new and advanced source connectors shall be improved.
SAP Data Intelligence is best suited if you are using other SAP enterprise applications. It is one of the powerful BI solutions that provide powerful reports in a few clicks. The UI is brilliant and easy to use and any person with initial training can use this solution for enterprise use. However, it is less appropriate when you have a large amount of data as this takes a lot of time to upload into the system. Also, the inbuilt workflow needs improvements on a regular basis. User feedback plays an important role in improving the BI solution. The reports shall have a provision for customization as per the client's requirements.
SAP Data Intelligence is one solution for all your data analytics requirements. It is a reliable and scalable solution that can be used for any domain and product vertical. Although, there are some improvements required such as user training materials, the introduction of machine learning capabilities for predictive analytics, etc. Mobile compatibility is also a big concern as we received feedback from the users. Overall a good data analytics solution by SAP.

In my organization, SAP Data Intelligence is used in a few selected departments. It helps me to integrate data from flat files and external applications, process, and manage it in one spot.
  • Is deployed both on-premise in our data and on private cloud
  • Enhance data governance through discovery, profiling, and cataloging data
  • Data orchestration and monitoring
  • Can’t complain since vendor support team offers free assistance, automatic updates, and detailed documentation for tutorials.
SAP Data Intelligence suits all business scenarios that encompasses data. It simplifies exploration, enticement, modeling and visualization of data.
Support at SAP quickly understands our issues, responding with links to tutorials and article tutorials.

SAP Data Intelligence is used in all company departments, but not all employees use it at workstations. On my end, it helps me to better understand business data by discovering, connecting and enriching unstructured, geospatial, and structured disjointed data in SAP and non-SAP sources.
  • Has robust tools that make it easy to process disparate data.
  • Machine learning capabilities improve innovation and enhance streamlined operations.
  • Offers comprehensive metadata management rules, which improve compliance.
  • Unfortunately, SAP offers a free trial for other services such as SAC, but they failed to include a free tier for SAP Data Intelligence.
Machine-generated bases modeling on SAP Data Intelligence help us predict complex business processes, thus making decisions prior to impacts.
Whenever I face challenges when using this solution, SAP quickly responds to my tickets, but I must be logged in.

A highly reliable tool that has been serving our company for a year span and in this long time it has given power over our data as it is giving us a way to manage our data using multiple filters. Moreover, the most advantageous part is that we can export data to excel that too is very helpful. We can get data insights and can look for the data from anywhere and anytime.
  • we can look for the data (that we require) from anywhere and can have access at any time.
  • We can transfer our data to excel and can perform further actions on it. hence data integration is amazing.
  • We can filter our data using multiple filters.
  • Great Pipeline.
  • Templates.
  • No frequent updates.
  • Clunky sometimes.
  • Pricy is unfair.
  • Poor customer service.
It is a highly recommended tool and I think it is worth the hype. It is amazing for data management, profiling along other functions. Its integration helps you to manage data and transfer it to excel from where you can further proceed with your analysis. And its templates are time savers too. So overall in my opinion it is simply perfect. Although it is not good for people looking out for tools at a cheap price.
Data intelligence tool is a need of our company and it has been great to get this tool as it has provided us with 90% support and it is easy to manage and analyze data now. I can integrate it with excel and is great for the pipeline as well. So I can say that it has been wonderful in every way.

SAP Data Intelligence is effective because it offers helpful filters for managing data in a way that saves time and increases productivity. SAP Data Intelligence enables you to download filtered data into Microsoft Excel for further analysis. SAP Data Intelligence makes it simple to comprehend how data moves from one stage to the next.
  • SAP Data Information allows for the extraction and analysis of data and intelligence needed to improve the organization's and customers' services.
  • By applying filters to SAP Data Intelligence, you may create personalized reports.
  • Updates to the user interface are required.
  • The cost of a plan membership is pretty expensive.
SAP Data Intelligence enables the search and analysis of data from a variety of sources, which is critical for making choices based on these analyses.
SAP Data Intelligence is collaborating effectively in our work area, but with some small issues that other products of this sort have as well.

I started using SAP Data Intelligence at Redflex before joining Verra Mobility to integrate data, manage company information and catalog data in real-life in a single centralized cloud solution. At Verra Mobility, we use SAP Data Intelligence on few selected company departments mainly, corporate, IT and Engineering.
  • Data orchestration enhanced by SAP Data Intelligence enables to get high data value and analytics.
  • Improved innovation by utilizing machine learning to transform data from prototype to deployment.
  • Connect, integrate, and orchestrate data from multiple cloud and on-premises applications.
  • Data transfer speed tends to be slow when there is poor internet connection since SAP Data Intelligence don’t synchronize data while offline. However, this is not vendor fault, that’s why we have implemented robust wireless technology internet connection in our organization.
In the two organizations that I have used SAP Data Intelligence, it has been effective in managing data operations. SAP Data Intelligence is the most robust data integration and management solution that I have ever come across. I would highly recommend this service to all prospects that are looking to create, execute and reuse data models at ease.
I have interacted with SAP Data Intelligence support team for more than three times now. All the three times, I have been using the phone number that they have posted on their website. I like how the success team are knowledgeable and offers help rapidly.

The administration I work for uses SAP Data Intelligence. The team uses it for data exploration and to provide insights from the data warehouse.
  • Can use a wide range of SAP support like SAP HANA and languages like Python
  • Its easy and efficient to use
  • Eases the whole process from data prep to creating model
  • Too many load issues
  • Can do better in terms of reporting functions; some features for data manipulation could be made better
  • Can improve customer support

We are an early adopter of [SAP] Data Intelligence (DI), for which we are pioneering use cases with SAP as a partner company. Our broad goals are to increase transparency and reduce risk for renewable energy investors. Specifically with with DI we can set up real time monitoring pipelines using Machine Learning models that continuously compare historic power generation asset performance with their current performance. This provides early under performance warnings to the owner/investor so they can take action to avoid excessive costs due to mechanical failures or other equipment down times.
  • It integrates well with our current ecosystem of SAP products, like HANA.
  • It provides end-to-end machine learning operations, with tools for the complete model life cycle.
  • It has a simple user interface for novice users, with complex tools also available for power users.
  • It builds on SAP Data Hub, providing all the ETL functions of that tool with additional machine learning functionality.
  • It can run in the cloud, no on-premise software management needed.
  • Many programming languages are supported, it provides a sandbox environment for the user to develop in whichever style they prefer.
  • SAP is very actively developing and improving it.
  • The administration tools are still in development, currently SAP must be contacted for most admin tasks.
  • Updates sometimes introduce unwanted instabilities.
  • The documentation and examples use cases are still being written and need to be expanded.
SAP Data Intelligence is suitable for large scale commercial machine learning applications where hundreds or thousands of similar but unique processes must be independently monitored, for scenarios that must run automatically and repeatedly without data scientist involvement, and for scenarios where data is continuously collected. It is less appropriate for specialized data science projects with a fixed data set that will not be repeated.

We are calculating daily, monthly and yearly expenses for our department, basically all our expenses, inventory counts, and corrections. It is the heart of my business reporting and we use it more than once an hour to solve problems. The benefits are impossible to count as so many people rely on SAP Data Intelligence.
  • The best thing about SAP is that we can track our daily expenses in very little time.
  • This affects my business even more than Microsoft 365.
  • It updates us on our expenses and sales daily.
  • I wish it the acronyms made more sense.
  • Sometimes it's functionality is little bit slow.
  • Data integration services with other machine language tools were more complex. Workflows could have been simplified on this front.
We were trying to break the silos of data and have one data lake to have one source of truth. SAP Data Intelligence did help in accomplishing that. It offers great features such as it can create data pipelines for data integration and can easily compose data processing. It can operationalize machine learning. It can monitor data processes. It is very useful in governing metadata, including data profiling, fact sheet, business rules, and business glossary. It is self-service data preparation, including labeling and rating data.

SAP Data Intelligence has been used specifically within my department as a means of predicting certain costs of a claim. This has been an on-going project taking data from an OCR engine which reads incoming documents passing details to a variety of databases and SAP in order to predict those claims as possibly fraudulent claims or high value claims and pass this information to different departments via report for them to "keep an eye on."
  • Easy to pick up.
  • Tools for data cleansing.
  • Able to use existing learning models from the business.
  • Operates on cloud.
  • Not made for working with others.
  • Debugging is needlessly complicated and obfuscates issues.
  • Documentation could use more examples to highlight points.
SAP DI has proved useful to us with its ability to pull from a variety of data sources and is well suited to this. It is also more than capable of cleansing out data without a great deal of issues. It is well suited to running a variety of different ML models including the use of python and R. It is not so well suited to large masses of data and can do with more support around complex ML models.

We used SAP Data Intelligence to build Intelligent Asset Maintenance solution. In this current pandemic situation , clients are more focusing towards contact-less manufacturing and maintenance. We built a solution to enable machine failure prediction , anomaly detection in machine performance to proactively maintain the machine.

  • Data orchestration from multiple data sources
  • Machine learning capabilities
  • Containerize architecture to run on hybrid cloud
  • Scaling requirement to handle large data

SAP Data Intelligence is used for multiple use cases:
- Data is integrated from different source systems, which is then analysed first. After the analysis data is transformed and harmonized.
- Further, machine learning algorithms are modeled in SAP Data Intelligence and run on the data set.
- What is more, the SAP Data Intelligence environment interacts with different on premise systems and the results of the machine learning processes are sent back to the on premise systems.
  • Great machine learning capabilities
  • Many possibilities to connect source systems and interact with it
  • Operation on cloud reduces administration tasks to a minimum
  • Great Governance capabilities
  • Still fairly new product
Well suited for connecting various source systems, especially SAP systems, to SAP Data Intelligence and work with the data. Many possibilities to use machine learning algorithms. Fully managed on cloud.
In case of issues, support by SAP is fast provided.

Customers who have SAP S/4HANA/Business suite should definitely look to try DI for widespread adoption of ML in their business processes. The product is fairly stocked with features and typical of SAP, features are upgraded very frequently making it more stable and functionality rich. Support for connecting non SAP products and other systems like IOT is also very useful to blend in diverse sources of data.
Quick turnaround from the SAP DI support team for ticket resolutions. DI related documentation (help, blogs) is being improved continuously.

We have used [SAP] Data Intelligence for internal learning purposes in order to build up know-how within our team. For this purpose, we have re-implemented an existing showcase using [SAP] Data Intelligence.
  • Provides lots of standard operators and default pipelines
  • Good Python notebook integration for data discovery
  • Graphical UI to develop pipelines reduce amount of code written
  • Better documentation with examples of how to use connectors (i.e. what input/output must look like)
  • Debugging functionality required to understand where pipelines fail and how data looks at that point
  • SAP libraries (e.g. python hana_ml) should be STANDARD and pre-installed to avoid dockerfiles and other workarounds
  • Dockerfile execution takes long times without giving a status where it is failing/held up
  • HANA Read/Write Table operator throws TLS errors which are unlikely when HANA connection generally works
I believe [SAP] Data Intelligence is well suited for scenarios where data sits both in SAP systems as well as in additional files or other databases and needs to be integrated for joint purposes. Due to the large amount of standard operators, this can be done quite nicely. Also, [SAP] Data Intelligence integrates well with open source technologies such as Python, which makes this tool interesting for both DWH developers and Data Scientists as these two worlds are brought together.
