SAP Analytics Cloud is a cloud-based planning solution focused on the planners themselves while promoting fast and agile planning applications, as it analyses extremely large volumes of data that can be processed in a short amount time.
The solution supports the planning process along with comprehensive collaboration options. SAP Cloud for Planning combines planning and reporting in one application, with a look and feel that is modelled very closely to Excel.
Thanks to the innovative “in-memory computing,” even very large data volumes can be processed in a very short amount of time, which is then immediately available for planning, simulations, and analyses – such as ‘what if’ scenarios – at all levels of detail.
There are also comprehensive reporting facilities available.
To efficiently support users, the system generates reporting suggestions based on analyzed data. Instead of users having to consider random “drivers,” the analysis is focused on “key drivers.”
Cloud computing facilitates the utilization of the latest developments, meaning that planning can be implemented quicker, while making the latest innovations immediately available.
Usability and speed are also highly valued in the mobile environment, as they make for faster response time and facilitate efficient planning processes.
