SAP Cloud on Cloud 9

This has helped mainly with other SAP programs

Pros

It is an easy place to access data and allows for smooth integration with other SAP programs as well. Able to pull the data that I need to present smoothly.

Cons

Has somewhat of a learning curve, difficult to get a bearing on the interface until you have played around with it some.

THE APPLICATION IS GOOD, BUT THERE ARE THINGS TO BE CORRECTED

Pros

Good tool to have commercial information available from anywhere

Cons

I am testing the app with sales orders. The main drawback is that the formatted searches do not work in the app, there are several user fields that have to be completed in the order and filled with the formatted searches, but these do not work

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.

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.
