SAP Community Spotlight: SAP Analytics Cloud

Fall is here, and it is time to spice up this October with your favourite latte and this month’s spotlight topic: SAP Analytics Cloud!

What is SAP Analytics Cloud?

For those of you who are new, SAP Analytics Cloud is the planning and analytics solution within the SAP Business Technology Platform. It combines business intelligence, predictive analytics, and enterprise planning capabilities as a single integrated cloud solution on top of one data model. With its unique integration to SAP business applications and smooth access to heterogeneous data sources, SAP Analytics Cloud helps everyone in your organization make decisions without doubt with trusted insights and integrated plans.

SAP Analytics Cloud can be embedded into existing applications for lines of business and functions to meet the analytics needs of a large user population. It’s been rolled out to all SAP product lines including SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Cloud for Customer, and SAP Ariba. We continue to work to expand into new line of business applications, to increase the depth of functionality supplied and to effectively provide SAP users with a consistent experience for analytics.

Adapting quickly to change is essential in the fast-moving world of business where disruption has become the norm. As a result, the market is shifting towards Extended Planning and Analysis  to bring people and plans together and increase agility and performance. As one of the leading xP&A solutions on the market, our customers have turned to SAP Analytics Cloud for financial planning, workforce planning, and strategic planning to move quickly from insights to action.
