Sap Cloud

There are often new tools and platforms hitting the market, claiming to make life easier and more simplified for business owners. This week we are delving into SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).

So what is it? This a SaaS solution, combining multiple analytics functionalities into the one product through a single user interface. This tool offers not only data and reporting capabilities, but analysis of the data, providing valuable customer information to assist with predicting customer needs and market trends.

So how can it help business outcomes? We explain how.

What does SAP Analytics Cloud bring to the SAP Landscape?

SAC is a flexible addition to the SAP analytics landscape, bringing real-time access to the data within SAP via complex interfaces. For the user, it offers fast, fuss-free detailed reports across all business areas and the ability to create bespoke reports that cater to your company’s needs.

The beauty of SAC is that it combines general reporting capabilities with predictive abilities including a planning function; all in the one product. This ‘all in one’ is the key driver that separates SAC from other similar analytics systems who may offer all of these features, but in separate products.

So, what does it bring to Companies?

In a nutshell, SAC brings greater flexibility to a business. Flexibility in accessing, visualising and planning your market strategies based on its predictive capabilities.

The intuitive user interface tool has the ability to access SAP and non-SAP data to give a better overall view of your business and how it’s performing. The product also has a handy mobile app (ios version) so you can access data anywhere, anytime.

SAC is not only for large organisations. Small to medium-sized businesses can benefit from SAC’s capabilities too.

The key benefits of SAC you must know?
