Overall Satisfaction with SAP Analytics Cloud

The client decided for the tool. It was disregarded that SAP Analytics Cloud is not a Cockpit machine. SAP Analytics Cloud is ticking like an explorative BI frontend, but partly does not support depended filtering on a BW Live Connection. In my experience, here and there, there are so many missing features especially with a Live Connection, that in future i cannot advise clients to buy into that tool, since it is very complicated to connect to the landscape, does not offer real benefits in Live Connectivity and just pitfalls that you can step into like in a lifecycle. In my opinion, it is UNTHINKABLE SAP did not yet implement a function to exchange Livemodels on widgets/Stories. I think the adminsitration is just horror. So many things missing. And as a normal developer you are not able to delete private files from others that have them in private folder - well good this is fine - but then it cannot be, that objects are relevant to each other and dependent.... etc.

Pros

  • exploration
  • nothing
  • nothing

Cons

  • IBCS/ formatting charts
  • Cockpit functionality
  • lifecycle and live-model improvements
  • not same functionality split in cloud and on-premise with 1000 expceptions
  • the tool needs the correct usecase - for cockpits and reports it is not useable.
  • only usable for explorative analysis - but why use and extra $ frontend for this
i would not use it again if asked
  • Product Features
the decision was made by illusionated department heads
