"I like the predictive features of SAP. It's easy to use tools for an end-user."
"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."
"We mainly use Analytics Cloud because it integrates with other SAP solutions. Our ERP is an SAP product, and our back-end is SAP Business Warehouse, so integration is an essential factor."
"It integrates with third-party applications such as Google Drive and Excel,"
"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."
"The most valuable features are the analytical application and the user story."
"It offers good backup capabilities."
"It's so user-friendly."
"Business insights are shared across various departments."
"It has a shallow learning curve and so you can go to market very, very, very quickly."
"Tableau is easy to use. That's the first and most important thing. I not only provide consulting but I also train people to use it, so with its ease-of-use it's not as difficult for me to train executives and management staff, because they don't have the IT background, unlike when I'm using Python."
"Although Tableau isn't the best for us when it comes to processing and working on live data, it is very good at extracting data for analysis."
"Tableau is good for routine dashboards, and it has integration with Slack, through which it can send you daily updates."
"I like Tableau's heat maps and the storyboard. You can create data stories and tons of visuals with it, and it goes together really well. Tableau lets you manipulate the data in various ways."
"It's very user-friendly. It's not like Power BI, Tableau is very user-friendly. Anybody can use Tableau. It's very easy to adopt things. I can visualize the stats."
"Easy to create graphs and visualizations."
"Connection and integration with other applications have a lot of restrictions at the moment."
"It should have the flexibility for scoping the story and models. When you use it in a three-layer architecture, you struggle with the fact that you usually have just one SAP Analytics Cloud tenant, and you have to switch the connections, which might be an issue for bigger developments. For the development role, there should be an option to switch between development and production scenarios."
"Pricing is fine for the BI license, but when it comes to client license, that fee is a bit high."
"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."
"The customizations need to be better."
"Figuring out how to navigate all of the products around Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud and BW for HANA is quite difficult."
"It still lacks a lot of functionalities as compared to other tools such as Power BI or Tableau. Sorting is not working as well as it works in Tableau. A lot of other things are also not at the same level. Their technical support is not perfect and could be better. It takes a lot of time to have lacking functionalities implemented. Its integration with the BW backend should be better. Both solutions are from the same vendor. They position SAP Analytics Cloud as a reporting tool on top of the BW environment, but the integration between both is not yet 100%. For example, user management is still not synchronized."
"I would also like to have more advanced features for predictive analytics."
"The pricing is a bit higher than the competition. They'll need to lower it to stay competitive."
"Lacks customization in some areas."
"Implementation requires a technical background."
"If you wanted to create something without making it an extra column in the data set, you can't just rename it to a more user-friendly short name."
"The process of embedding the dashboards on external portals and websites could be improved."
"The charting is overly complex in comparison with Power BI's"
"It should offer better features for customization."
"The data preparation could integrate better with Tableau."
