SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP Analytics Cloud

The time for HR Insights is now and the requirement for all organisations to establish solid People Analytics capabilities are becoming more and more urgent for each week that passes by.

SAP SuccessFactors has historically always had a variety of reporting and analytics capabilities to support a People Analytics agenda. Since 2017 SAP has had a focus to streamline and optimise the reporting features available, which has until now resulted in the much improved Report Centre. The next evolution in this process is SAP Analytics Cloud which is a cloud-based reporting and analytics tool that will be embedded into SuccessFactors.

Next generation SaaS

SAP Analytics Cloud is a next-generation software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that consolidates all analytics functionalities for all users in one product. Built on SAP HANA Cloud Platform, it helps you overcome the challenge of point solutions and data silos spread throughout the organisation with enterprisewide access to analytics delivered through a cloud experience that you can trust.

With SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP SuccessFactors solutions working together, you gain all the analytical capabilities you need from one vendor. You can combine HR data with other application data to provide a 360-degree view of your business. Easier access to more information means you can make informed decisions in real-time and truly optimise your HR strategy.

The key challenge

The key challenge is in tearing down data silos so that you benefit from your organisational knowledge and insight. This new level of integration means you can apply deeply embedded analytics to enable a clear view of your business so that you can manage current needs and plan for future requirements. In addition, use pre-configured analytics content designed specifically for SAP SuccessFactors solutions, including the SAP SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics solution. Reports and dashboards for areas such as integrated headcount planning are accessible on demand. You can download and deploy relevant business content, such as recruitment packages, and apply a new level of analytical capability to core HR tasks. This gives you the knowledge and insight you need when you need it.

By consolidating access to multiple data sources, you can improve and promote fact-based decision-making and eliminate data silos. This enhanced analytics experience lets you align execution and achieve better HR results.

In the coming releases SAP Analytics Cloud will be integrated with SuccessFactors and will be available within Report Centre. The embedded solution will allow reporting on all SuccessFactors data sources, including Employee Central, Talent modules, Learning Management and Workforce Analytics. If you have a need to work with other data sources you need to license SAP Analytics Cloud separately, which is already today.
