    N/A

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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

    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.

    It has opened my mind to the unlimited possibilities of reporting. I'm super excited and anxiously awaiting the release of your enhanced API. We will hit the ground running with you all as soon as you release it.

    Pros

    I found the product super easy to use and it was fairly intuitive. I took my time going through the training resources and when I hit the wall their excellent customer support set me on the right path. It really seems that the reporting possibilities are only limited by my imagination. As an added benefit, the price is on point!

    Cons

    I look forward to the release of their enhanced API capabilities, I'll need this in order for the product to be fully functional for me.

    - geo maps is really great for analyzing the whole picture,
    - date range filter is really great, exactly what I need,
    - it is interesting work with modeler

    I try only free version so many features I did not have possibility to try.

    Cons

    - Only USA States supporting in geo region;
    - only 256 symbols for string value in model is too small, I have really large field;
    - I did not understand how to build many-to-many links between models or dimensions in one model;
    - how to add dimension with few value for one model ID or put measure as distinct value;
    - it would be great if table in story has expand and collapse function,

    For me, it has to be the graphical aspect. The ability to upload a file with 1000's of values and then piece by piece build a story to bring the data to life. The geo location functionality is also excellent and the tool is definitely user friendly - the hints that pop up are very useful.

    Cons

    Using the software on the free trial I've not noticed anything that I dislike. Maybe the geo location by region could be extended to other regions outside of the USA... I understand you can use coordinates for this but it would be good to have the same option for Europe.
