Overall Satisfaction with SAP Analytics Cloud
We use SAP Analytics Cloud for all of our Dashboarding needs. Use it for Planning and Predictive Analytics. This is also for Financial planning and Sales forecasting. Before this, we were lacking a web-based front-end tool for Planning. We did not have any dashboarding tool before this. So most of our reports excel based. Since this tool does not have any desktop deployment, it makes it so much easy to roll out updates. With SAP BW backend, setting up security for user access is seamless.

SAP Analytics Cloud is very very strong and stable for what it offers. We have experienced hardly any crashes, whether it is connected to an SAP Source or non-SAP Source. It is pretty robust with live data connections and import methods as well. Works just fine even if there are huge calculations on live connections.
SAP's support can be tricky at various levels whether it is for SAP Analytics Cloud or be it other SAP products. They need to improve on this quite a bit. Their call center or help desk or service center need better trained professionals. They can do better to provide round the clock support.
SAC is logically the best investment for a SaaS-based BI solution for an enterprise that has already invested heavily in other SAP products. Great at user self-service reporting / Adhoc reporting. SAC is probably less appropriate for an organization that does not use SAP at all. There are a lot of other BI visualization tools that can deliver better visualization for a cheaper price.
