Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"There is a really nice insight feature that I enjoy using.""The solution is stable.""It's many features make it the best in the market.""We mainly use Analytics Cloud because it integrates with other SAP solutions. Our ERP is an SAP product, and our back-end is SAP Business Warehouse, so integration is an essential factor.""The visualization feature is the most valuable. SAP Analytics Cloud is also very easy to use.""The reporting, dashboards, KPIs, and visualization are the most valuable.""The most valuable features are the analytical application and the user story.""Data integration is very good."

Cons
"Its integration or connectivity with non-SAP systems, big data, and social media, such as YouTube, LinkedIn, et cetera, can be improved. This is where SAP has limited features as compared to other solutions.""The budget management could be better.""The general management of this solution could be improved. The graphics or icons could also be improved to allow them to integrate with other environments on the web.""Sometimes we have difficulty connecting to a SharePoint list.""It still lacks a lot of functionalities as compared to other tools such as Power BI or Tableau. Sorting is not working as well as it works in Tableau. A lot of other things are also not at the same level. Their technical support is not perfect and could be better. It takes a lot of time to have lacking functionalities implemented. Its integration with the BW backend should be better. Both solutions are from the same vendor. They position SAP Analytics Cloud as a reporting tool on top of the BW environment, but the integration between both is not yet 100%. For example, user management is still not synchronized.""It should have the flexibility for scoping the story and models. When you use it in a three-layer architecture, you struggle with the fact that you usually have just one SAP Analytics Cloud tenant, and you have to switch the connections, which might be an issue for bigger developments. For the development role, there should be an option to switch between development and production scenarios.""I think it would be easier if there was another module created to retrieve only data.""Custom visuals is another area of improvement. There are also some mobile features that are missing. There are features that aren't available on the mobile."
