I got limited experience with both. My answer is simple, I would typically try to keep the number of touchpoints to a minimum.
I assume you are already using SAP? If yes, select SAP Analytics Cloud. If you are not using SAP, Tableau would probably be a better option since it is implemented with a wide range of platforms.
If you already got SAP in-house, I would generate a comparison report, compare functionality, cost, investigate where your company got skills in use, support and administration.
Tableau will allow you to analyse data from all different data sources combined amongst them and allows you to use cloud or on-premises.
SAP Analytics is more tailored to SAP and it's only for the cloud.
It all depends on your use case.
Tableau licensing is very flexible, you can easily get up and running with Tableau, Tableau provides you with good customizations options so you can customize the dashboards easily.
SAP Analytics Cloud, I am very much aware but I think it must be costly as all SAP products are. However, a support/out-of-box SAP dashboard could give you more, in case you already have a SAP ecosystem.
