SAP Analytics Cloud is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that provides all the analytics capabilities for all users in one product. The SAP Analytics Cloud solution helps all types of decision makers who need to make better decisions, by combining business intelligence, collaborative enterprise planning, and augmented analytics. Rather than relying on standalone spreadsheets or separate, disconnected reporting and planning tools, everyone has everything they need, embedded where they work, to make confident decisions together and become a more agile, intelligent enterprise.
The first three weeks of the course will cover the business intelligence and augmented analytics capabilities of SAP Analytics Cloud. You’ll experience how business intelligence and augmented analytics help you make decisions with a new level of confidence – without IT intervention or data science training. In week 4, we’ll explore how financial planners and analysis professionals can leverage SAP Analytics Cloud for collaborative planning. Week 5 will focus on the Analytics Designer capabilities of SAP Analytics Cloud, exposing a powerful environment geared for professional designers of analytical applications. To supplement the learning experience, you’ll have access to a comprehensive set of hands-on exercises for each topic area.
The learning content, registration, and final exam are all free of charge. You’ll be able to get practical experience with SAP Analytics Cloud by signing up for a free trial account. Instructions on how to create this account will be provided at the start of the course
