    SAP Analytics Cloud

    AI-driven findings for fact-based decisions

    SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) is a self-service business analytics tool that lets you not only analyze current situations based on data models, but also investigate root causes and develop future scenarios.

    This software-as-a-service solution is based on the SAP HANA Cloud platform and integrates business intelligence with predictive and planning functions. Its in-memory technology is very powerful and can be used on any device via a web browser. Your users are connected with one another on a central platform – meaning there's no need for tedious consolidation of Excel spreadsheets.

    Key benefits

    • Business intelligence: Extensive options for accessing data and flexible business reporting
    • Enterprise planning: Create and link integrated financial and operational plans on one central platform
    • Predictive analytics and AI: Make better decisions based on modern forecasting methods and data-driven insights
    • Application design: Develop sophisticated applications directly on the platform without messy integration issues

    Analytics Cloud architecture

    SAP Analytics Cloud is hosted, maintained, and regularly enhanced and updated by SAP in the Cloud Foundry. You can choose your preferred data center and thereby ensure that your data remains in your region. A simple, user-based licensing model makes it easier to select the right licenses.

    Meanwhile, Cloud Connector gives you a secure way to transfer your data to the SAC. If your data retention needs are more demanding, you can also leave the data in your own BW and use a live connection. In this case, the SAC uses only metadata to construct models and calculations; your back-end systems and browser do the rest. Having a live connection means no data will leave your enterprise network and you can continue to use your data source's existing system of permissions.

    The requirements in terms of interfaces depend on your specific needs. Get in touch with us – we’ll be happy to advise you.

    Benefits of a central platform

    How many Excel spreadsheets of planning data exist at your company? How often do you have to e-mail Excel files back and forth until a plan is finalized? How many versions of the same plan are there in your SharePoint? In SAP Analytics Cloud, you can develop targeted data models for requirements in specific topic areas (such as personnel cost planning or depreciation) and integrate them with ease. You can reduce the complexity of your data landscape while still having all your planning in one central location. At the same time, the SAC makes it easy to share and discuss plans with colleagues. You'll be able to keep your inbox tidy and won't have to click your way through your company's SharePoint to get the exact reports you need.

    Meanwhile, the collaboration features of the SAC enable you to further elaborate and coordinate your planning input. You can also create calendar tasks, organize processes, and assign planning tasks in the SAC. The system identifies market managers and product owners, for example, and creates all objects in a fully automated way. Your planners only see what they need to see.
    Keep track and maintain control of process progress by reviewing, accepting, or rejecting planning figures. If your company operates in multiple countries, the SAC can also support you with automatic currency conversion and an option to set each country's fiscal year.
