2019 review for SAP Analytics Cloud … sequel – end
2019: SAC sequel – end…
In August 2019, I gave you an assessment of those early years on SAC. And at that moment I was telling you:
“But I think SAP Analytics Cloud will take hold in the software landscape and will become unavoidable when it comes to making a comparison of BI, Planning or Predictive tools”
And indeed in the space of 4 months we continued to have many existing customers but also new prospects who asked us to know more about SAC!
What happened between August 2019 and February 2020?
we have put into production 4 planning projects and new IB projects,
IB is much more operational than in the past when we used to process a lot of financial information.
we’ve worked to promote SAC to SAP customers of all sizes:
at the USF (SAP Customer Congress) we were able to present the work done at Air France to more than 130 participants
on C2U Day, Ubister customer community day of their ERP cloud DESIGN4 solution
a growing number of customers came to meet us to accompany them in their architectures/projects/optimizations of SAC.
What about 2020?
Of course, we are starting 2020 with projects already launched in 2019, as well as with many tracks!
In 2020, I think there will be an increase in SAP Analytics Cloud on 3 axes:
we will see an increase in the number of SAC Planning – S/4HANA contexts.
we will see the deployment of large projects of BI – Planning in France (accompanied by Karamba! of course)
we will see more and more packaged projects. Indeed, if the software offer in SaaS brings a big simplification in its consumption, its deployment, there remains a project component that still needs to be optimized. Have more and more pre-configured approaches and stop tailoring with each project (when possible) Besides Karamba! now offers a pre-configured payroll simulation on SAC Planning. We will have the opportunity to present it at the Webinar on March 12, 2020, co-organized with SAP France
The year 2020 promises to be rich, with many customer contexts! then rdv in September 2020 for a next assessment?
