  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
Our company utilizes many SAP systems and reporting tools. In addition to these tools, the ease of using/creating stories and dashboards played a significant role in choosing SAP Analytics Clouds. The tool has helped provide direction for teams in a way that was difficult to summarize in past dashboards.
SAP Analytics Cloud is a comparable product/solution to Power BI but has additional features that could be viewed as an improvement. SAP Analytics Cloud models are based on 1 large data set and multiple models can be merged. When combined with multiple SAP systems, the Analytics Cloud utilizes a single data set architecture. SAP Analytics Cloud also has the capability of augmented analysis.
