It offers a one-stop solution and an intuitive user interface to support various business needs, ranging from BI reporting and predictive forecasting to financial and sales planning, without having to launch multiple applications. This leads to fewer errors and lower integration efforts, while improving user experience and productivity. SAP Analytics Cloud gives the users the freedom to access the information they need when they need it. It can connect to multiple data sources (cloud and on premise) and enables users to access information and make decisions in real-time.
