We are able to customize the program to accurately meet our companies needs.
SAP makes my job easier on a daily basis by helping to manage company data. It allows me to more easily manage my analytical processing as well.
A bit complicated and definitely takes some time to learn to navigate the system.

1. Visualization of data

- Visualization,charts, story , pages
- geo maps is really great for analyzing the whole picture,
- date range filter is really great, exactly what I need,
- it is interesting work with modeler
I try only free version so many features I did not have possibility to try.
- Only USA States supporting in geo region;
- only 256 symbols for string value in model is too small, I have really large field;
- I did not understand how to build many-to-many links between models or dimensions in one model;
- how to add dimension with few value for one model ID or put measure as distinct value;
- it would be great if table in story has expand and collapse function,

Thanks for your feedback! We appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts with us, it helps us to keep working hard for our customers.
Regarding some of your questions:
- To create hierarchies or links between dimensions in one model, please watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tgTJB3kOGw&index=113&list=PLs5htBIwERYWSixKSqQHzndop33aBCz1U
Creating hierarchies will help to expand or collapse the information on the tables in your story.
- Regarding dimensions, you can create a public dimension that later on you can use with another model.

Since we started using SAP Analytics Cloud, the problems increased instead of decreasing. The experience of planning became a nightmare, where we realized that many calculations can not be made or that it is necessary to perform up to 9 calculations to obtain a result that in another tool would be obtained with one and only one calculation.
In real time, the planning carried out on an excel sheet ends up being faster and easier to perform than using SAP Analytics Cloud.
Easy to use
Graphics with a striking and modernist aesthetic
Constant server errors
Little or no information about the errors
The planning model does not allow the entry of data in calculated accounts. Which, forces the user to have "Account Plan" and "Account Import" to formulate "Consolidated Account" as "IF (version = plan, [Account Plan], [Account Import]) .This makes the planning for each account complex calculated and if there is more than one version the problem rises exponentially.
Very few formulas to perform calculations
Serious performance problems due to the use of Lookup formulas
Some complexities must be solved with the use of script, which is not easy to learn for the end user, eliminating all automation options and returning to archaic and manual systems.
Each use of srcipt must be executed with a button. However, the waiting time can not exceed 5 minutes. Otherwise, the action is not executed. I had to have 12 buttons to execute a single action.

We are able to mass communicate our sales to our entire team, which can then be trickled down to our partners.
I like the ease of pulling the data and be able to display it.
At times, it is slow to load and update. Many times we have to restart all together.

Excellent cloud analytics with live connections gives instant data fetch. User Interface is very easy to use and very easy to create financial statements.
Expensive software. And setting up for first use is difficult. I would suggest that they should have a better tutorials for beginners.
