Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are on the application side, where you can design applications into your analytics on the platform.""The features that I have found most valuable with SAP ERP products are their good user interface, stability, functionality, and good interface options.""In the most recent release, the schedule publication was officially updated and it's been added on MS Office 365. I like how we had an EPM for B to C perspective; it's a great enhancement. Also, I believe the B to B connectivity has been improved. Android support for mobile is really good also. Power BI has always had android support in place, so manual support for SAP Analytics Cloud is also a very good feature.""Its user-friendliness is valuable. It is a product for end-users and not for IT, which is an advantage.""It offers good backup capabilities.""It's so user-friendly.""I like the connectivity the solution provides with other products.""It is a comprehensive BI solution that provides reporting, planning, and predictive analytics in one solution. You don't have to buy three different products. It is very flexible. It can be implemented very quickly. It has a lot of out-of-the-box scenarios that you can use for quick deployment."

"Pricing is fine for the BI license, but when it comes to client license, that fee is a bit high.""Technical support could be more helpful and responsive.""Figuring out how to navigate all of the products around Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud and BW for HANA is quite difficult.""SAP Analytics Cloud requires a lot of coding and I would like the coding to be somewhat minimal.""SAP could add some more visualization features to Analytics Cloud, like charts and analytics. I would also like to see some more data cleaning and ad hoc functions added to this solution.""Custom visuals is another area of improvement. There are also some mobile features that are missing. There are features that aren't available on the mobile.""The security, authorization, and live connection to the back-office system features can be improved. A business analyst colleague who creates complex financial management reports has mentioned that he wants to see more fact and visualization features. It would be helpful to have more visualization features to be able to prepare more stories or reports for executives. For example, Tableau has some visualization features that are not present in this solution.""They need a better scalability rate."

"Technical support could be improved because they take too long to answer our queries.""I think that this solution should be more compatible with other software, including open-source solutions."

  • "It's not that costly as such for the time being."
  • "Its licensing is on a monthly basis."
  • "Compute and storage features should be sold separately."
  • "Its pricing is okay as compared to its competitors."
