SAP Analytics Cloud
SAP Analytics Cloud is software as a service (SaaS) business intelligence (BI) platform designed by SAP. Analytics Cloud is made specifically with the intent of providing all analytics capabilities to all users in one product. SAP Analytics Cloud evolved out of the SAP Cloud for Planning product. In addition to business planning, the other key components are BI (for reporting, dashboarding, data-discovery and visualization), predictive analytics and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC).
Built natively on SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP), SAP Analytics Cloud allows data analysts and business decision makers to visualize, plan and make predictions all from one secure, cloud-based environment. SAP claims this differs from other BI platforms, which often require data to be integrated from various sources and users to jump between different applications when performing tasks, such as creating reports. With all the data sources and analytics functions in one product, Analytics Cloud users can work more efficiently, according to SAP. The key functions are accessed from the same user interface that is designed for ease-of-use for business users.
Integration with SAP Analysis for Microsoft Office: This includes read and write functions for users who want to import data and work in readily familiar environments.
Data locking and enhanced data access rights: Used for forecasting processes, where responsibilities held by planners are enforced by data locking and additional locked states (open, locked and restricted) are defined by enhanced data access rights.
Predictive analytics: Implements machine learning to perform guided analysis using Smart Discovery, transformations and insights.
Access to on-premise and cloud data: Provides real-time access to SAP applications such as HANA, as well as non-SAP applications for on-premise and cloud locations.
Embedded analytics: Allows for users to access analytic features such as what-if analysis and ad-hoc.
Access to SAP S/4HANA: This combines transactions, analytics, and planning in one application.
Creation and modification tools: For data-driven budgeting, analysis, and forecasting from one cloud interface.
