Make More Informed Business Decisions with SAP Analytics Cloud

Clear Insight for Your Business

The current technology landscape offers organizations of all sizes many options to gain insight through business intelligence software and predictive analytics. As such, the market offers products for every level within a company, but few options have a holistic end-to-end approach to their information analytics services, a crucial factor for enterprise. This is where the SAP Analytics Cloud solution stands out from the competition as it incorporates analytics throughout the entire business process, integrated across every organizational level.

An end-to-end solution

Information is hard to manage properly since it is produced from every single point in the company. Even the smallest data transaction from an intern’s desk could prove valuable when used to feed predictive analytics engines.

SAP Analytics Cloud lets you synchronize data from across your entire infrastructure, in real-time, using a single system.

Running on a cloud platform and the HANA in-memory database, SAP Analytics Cloud has the power to integrate, process, and analyze real-time information and provide valuable insights for users at every level of business. Predictive analytics can then be used to leverage decisions made in the boardroom, in the office, or in front of a client; then the information can be accessed and used from any device, at any time. This empowers users throughout the company with fact-based/real time insight to support their decision-making at every step.

SAP’s patented in-memory database working in conjunction with SAP Cloud Platform makes SAP Cloud Analytics a speedy solution to data management for analytics. Processing time for analysis can be greatly reduced thanks to the speed of HANA’s unique data collection architecture. For companies using SAP products and across the whole organization, the speed of digital transactions is even more noticeable.

Empowering leadership

SAP Analytics Cloud benefits the entire organization, but it gives senior leadership a wide, detailed view of the company and the ability to predict outcomes with certainty. Decision-makers in enterprise can visualize information through easy-to-understand dashboards and reports generated by SAP Analytics Cloud. Business intelligence and predictive analytics software calculate possible outcomes in different scenarios through the entire business process using complex algorithms. This brings a game-changing factor into the boardroom, boosting the ability to set goals and plan and organize the strategy to reach them.

Leadership can track analytics for financial reports (financial close, reconciliation, regulatory filing, etc.), risk analysis, budgeting, capital planning, and manage KPI’s to compare performance across the board. SAP Analytics Cloud helps decision-makers save time and money, as well as mitigating risk with easy-to-access real-time information and the business intelligence tools to interpret it. In addition, accurate forecasts can be made to make optimal strategic use of corporate resources. What makes SAP Analytics especially attractive for senior management is how it simplifies collaboration from team to team; from the salesperson all the way up to the people at the company’s helm.

Subscription-based savings

SAP Analytics Cloud is a subscription-based SaaS (software as a service) that represents a lower cost of ownership since it incorporates all features for all users in a single cloud-based solution. Besides the usual cost-effective benefits of using cloud solutions, SAP Analytics Cloud lets you forget about having to buy, implement, and manage multiple analytics point solutions; business analysts, decision-makers, and stakeholders are all empowered through a single system.
