Enables us to forecast and pull trends and has an easy installation

Pros and Cons

  • "I think the features of the actual ability to forecast and pull trends and correlations has been really good."

    What is our primary use case?

    We mainly use this program as a customer management system. We're looking at optimizing customer portfolio management and improving the aggregated lifetime values of the portfolio from one period to the next.

    What is most valuable?

    Well, this is difficult for me to answer because that's more on the team side. But I think the features of the actual ability to forecast and pull trends and correlations have been really good.

    What needs improvement?

    We've looked at the ability of customer churn, propensity to develop customers and ideas of what makes the ideal customer. We are reaching out to try and predict from a database of what customers would be matching.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using SAP Predictive Analytics for only a couple of months now.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I have found that the solution is very stable. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    We haven't looked too much into the scalability of the solution, but we are fairly confident that it would meet whatever scale we're looking at. It wasn't a turn-off for us from the beginning but we haven't actually attempted to scale.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    It's possible that my team have used the technical support but I can't say how their service was. I haven't heard any bad reports yet, so I suppose the technical support is good.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    No, we haven't used another solution before.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup was straightforward and we are still busy with the deployment. It is an on-going process and we may need to call in the help of an integrator or consultant to take it to the next level.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    I am not sure what the exact costs are, but I believe it is reasonable.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We looked at Alteryx and we ran it for a while but we moved over to SAP Predictive Analytics. Alteryx couldn't do what we wanted it to do. We wanted a template of stuff that had been done previously, and we wanted some ideas on how to get started. We found that Alteryx was very, very weak in that area.

    What other advice do I have?

    My rating for SAP Predictive Analytics would be an eight out of ten. If I have to be bold, I'll probably say that we're building away hours, and we are actually putting a lot of the actual predicting stuff back into the warehouse. So running it very bi-directionally. So I'm not sure what its integration features are at the moment, but that's an area we're going to look into in the next month or so.

    Easy to implement, good data forecasting and reporting

    Pros and Cons

    • "The most valuable features are the analytics and reporting."
    • "This solution works for acquired data but not live, real-time data."

    What is our primary use case?

    We are a consulting company and we provide services such as those offered by SAP Predictive Analytics. We use this solution to forecast data based on what the customer is interested in predicting. We push all of the data to SAP, perform analysis on it, and generate reports.

    How has it helped my organization?

    At this point, it's too early for me to judge the accuracy and performance of SAP Predictive Analytics because we have only just been working on basic data. Next quarter, I hope we get some more feedback from our customers on larger amounts of work that needs to be done, on the order of millions of records. With that, we will see the accuracy of the models the solution generates. As of now, I'm not able to say because we are still working on it and need more time.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable features are the analytics and reporting.

    What needs improvement?

    This solution works for acquired data but not live, real-time data. If we connect it to a live backend system then we cannot perform predictive analytics on top of that. We have to first upload data to the cloud, manage the staging environment, and then perform the analysis.

    In the next release of this solution, I would like to see more automation in generating the models. The system can suggest the dimensions and measures that should be used, and pre-populate some of the information based on that. Power users would not have as much need for this, but this type of automation would be very helpful for business end-users.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have been using SAP Predictive Analytics for about four months.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I have not experienced any issues.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    We always purchase SAP support because it is very good. They give you the maximum attention and it is really quite amazing.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is straightforward and simple.

    The length of deployment depends on the environment. It is a cloud-based deployment and for us, it was a seamless integration. However, if there are firewalls and other network aspects to consider then it may take four or five days.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    A free trial version is available for testing out this solution.

    What other advice do I have?

    My advice to anybody who is researching this solution is to try the free trial version. I would suggest they explore Discovery Insights and Discovery Reports, as well as how it integrates with other reporting tools. 

    This solution has been good for me so far, and I am continuing to explore the analytics.

    I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
