SAP did not leave a good taste in my mouth

Pros

the application is good, although there are things to be corrected, for example, in the version Crystal reports if you run parameters, however in the app does not allow the execution of parameters, should put both versions on par

Cons

the SBO customizations do not work as well in the application

Integration is Smooth

It's difficult to understand this application unless you have a class in it. With large companies, they offer good initial training, but it is difficult to get a second opportunity to train once the application is implemented.

Pros

The program integrates with the SAP ERP software.

Cons

Understanding the analytics features can be difficult.

SAP Analytics cloud: Real time analytics.

Pros

Excellent cloud analytics with live connections gives instant data fetch. User Interface is very easy to use and very easy to create financial statements.

Cons

Expensive software. And setting up for first use is difficult. I would suggest that they should have a better tutorials for beginners.

SAP Review

SAP helps me to process customer's orders for books. I need to place customer's Sold To, Ship To address, and item information. Sometimes SAP has presented several problems.

Pros

It is a easy software to work on and place customer's information for a purchase.

Cons

Sometimes while working you will find issues with SAP. Sometimes you will be working and automatically it will log you off due to an Error. I have lost time in working and before saving SAP presented me an error and my information was deleted. So I would need to start over again.

Always better on the cloud

Analyze data, reveal trends, gather insights, use across platforms through the cloud.

Pros

Good company and a safe bet for large corporations. Having data on the cloud makes it easy to access through other devices such as tablets in client meetings.

Cons

Steep learning curve for people new to these kinds of platforms. If you get the hang of it, it is a great way to see trends and analyze data sets through a cloud platform.

I evaluated this software asked by a client

Pros

Well, it certainly has many features. I like that it can grow with a company, and allow companies to add extra features as needed

Cons

I found it not very intuitive and hard to learn its quirky ways. It was difficult to use in my opinion and expensive

All of your data, all in one place

Pros

What an amazing tool for anyone running SAP and integrations. I am able to pull my CRM Data and my SAP data cleanly together and report on it with amazing precision. The graphs look fantastic as well! Loads of functions and different ways to show and slice your data.

Cons

It is a bit much to setup when dealing with integration points, but show me an Analytics tool that doesn't. Stellar for the price as well.

3. financial statements can easily made.
4. Good interface.

Cons

The interface of SAP ERP is sometimes difficult to use for some users. It should have more colors font and different apperance.

I used SAP Analytics Cloud to create some commerciale and financial reports.

Easy of use; analytics insight; beautiful interface.

Pros

The tool has great features like the planning menu and the easy of use interface. It's a complete tool for Business Intelligence and analytics, with beautiful views and charts.

Cons

SAP Analytics Cloud doesn't have some features that other BI tool have, for instance direct connectors with cloud data sources as Google Analytics, Facebook, etc.
The latency is also a problem for final users.

Working on Analytics Cloud is very slow. Poor Performance. Loading 7k rows took multiple attempts

Analytics is one where this would be useful. The Dashboards and story line building would help in making an informed decision

Pros

Drag and Drop feature, All Inbuilt Algorithms, ease of using ESRI and hence the geo co-ordinates, Ease of Building a Story or a Data model

Cons

Poor Performance. Loading 7k rows took multiple attempts. Also when a filter is used on this 7k records, the time for update the Dashboard is not that impressive

Great software. Good visualization features, need more intuitiveness.

I used it only as a trainee.

Pros

The map layer feature helps analysis of totally unrelated facts. Good features for a cloud based application.

Cons

Chart types are only basic. Need more types. Data confidentiality is a concern with cloud based application. A BW live connection may have adverse impact on performance.

Great product but not for non-analysts

Pros

I love that it's backed by SAP HANA and sits in the cloud. It makes it easy to do analytics from different laptops/computers and share results among a distributed team.

Cons

Not being able to share links with external individuals without naming them as a user. That's something offered by Adobe Creative Cloud and Office 365 and was hopeful SAP would offer it too.
