​SAP redefines analytics in the Cloud with new SaaS offering

SAP unveils SAP Cloud for Analytics solution, a planned software as a service (SaaS) offering that aims to bring all analytics capabilities into one solution.

SAP has unveiled the SAP Cloud for Analytics solution, a planned software as a service (SaaS) offering that aims to bring all analytics capabilities into one solution.

Built natively on SAP HANA Cloud Platform, the real-time solution plans to be embedded with existing SAP solutions.

As a result, it intends to connect to cloud and on-premise data to deliver planning, predictive and business intelligence (BI) capabilities in one analytics experience.

The intent is for organisations to use this one solution to enable their employees to track performance, analyse trends, predict and collaborate to make informed decisions and improve business outcomes.

“The challenge with analytics solutions on the market today, cloud or otherwise, is the silo approach to delivering capabilities such as visualisation and forecasting,” says Steve Lucas, president, Platform Solutions, SAP.

“SAP Cloud for Analytics will be a new end-to-end cloud analytics experience, giving customers the ability to access all data so business users can easily discover, visualise, plan and predict.

“That to me is more than visualisation of data, that¹s realisation of success.”

Lucas says SAP intends to deliver SAP Cloud for Analytics in a fully scalable, multi-tenant environment at a price point that enables any individual or company to sign up and get going quickly.

While launching new SaaS analytics capabilities, Lucas says that SAP remains committed to innovations to the existing analytics solutions delivered on premise and/or in private cloud deployments with customers taking advantage of hybrid scenarios for on premise and cloud data.

“SAP and Google are collaborating to extend powerful analytic capabilities to customers,” adds Prabhakar Raghavan, VP Engineering, Google Apps.

“These innovations are planned to allow Google Apps for Work users to embed, refresh and edit SAP Cloud for Analytics content directly in Google Docs and Google Sheets.”
