Overall Satisfaction with SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP Analytics Cloud was procured as part of our overall SAP transformation initiative. We are a big Power BI shop, and we are struggling to establish SAC as a competent replacement for Power BI. SAC seems to lack the versatility of PowerBI. Not very user-friendly. Having been an SAP proponent/Consultant for over 20 years, I feel sad providing this feedback about an SAP product.
  • Good integration with SAP products
  • User-friendly UI
  • Not at par with Power BI
  • Too early to comment
SAP Analytics Cloud can't hold water compared to Power BI.
  • Product Reputation

We have SAP Analytics Cloud, AFO (SAC version). We were a big power BI shop before we implemented SAP, and compared to Power BI capabilities, we are finding it difficult to convince users to adopt SAC.
