We performed a comparison between Meraki Location Analytics and SAP Analytics Cloud based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two BI (Business Intelligence) Tools solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"Technical support has always been very good."
"In general, it is helpful because it allows administrators to see where the Wi-Fi and network services are being most used."
"I like Location Analytics' geofencing features for devices. You can manage thousands of devices with just a push of a button and deploy applications in seconds. For example, in schools, you can deploy an app update for thousands of iPads in just two clicks."
"The most valuable features are the analytical application and the user story."
"I would recommend this solution for companies that are SAP dependent with users working in this environment."
"The ability to collaborate and plan together is great."
"Easy to use."
"Its user-friendliness is valuable. It is a product for end-users and not for IT, which is an advantage."
"It offers good backup capabilities."
"Planning and integration are the most valuable features. It is useful for planning, and it is useful for integrating with on-prem or cloud SAP solutions."
"I like the product's capabilities. The clarity and scenarios are the main features that allow us to forecast using machine learning algorithms and make decisions."
"I would like to see all of the features included in a single package."
"The pricing is a pain point for us. It's a bit expensive."
"The biggest issue is negotiating the price with a client. That's the most complicated part, but the product is worth it."
"The customizations need to be better."
"I would also like to have more advanced features for predictive analytics."
"What could be improved in SAP Analytics Cloud is integration, particularly in terms of extracting data from the source system. Currently, its data extraction mechanism doesn't have good integration and needs improvement."
"The price, integration, and modeling capabilities could be better. I have to use an integration engine to integrate our products and databases. SAP Analytics Cloud is made specifically for KPIs and business intelligence. The modeling capabilities are kind of poor. You always have to model the data and then present it visually in SAP Analytics Cloud. In the next release, I would like to have a lite version for planning to create scenarios quickly. For me personally, planning is the most complicated feature of SAP Analytics Cloud."
"An additional feature that needs to be added to SAP Analytics Cloud is exporting because right now, you can only export to PDF and PowerPoint. It would be good to have multiple export options, for example, to Excel and other apps. Pricing is an area for improvement in SAP Analytics Cloud, apart from exporting."
"SAC, which is the cloud version, lost some good features from the previous planning product, like BPC or BPS."
"Could be more user-friendly; somewhat complicated to use."
"They need a better scalability rate."
