WALLDORFSAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that the SAP Analytics Cloud solution received 17 top rankings in The BI Survey 19, the voice of the BI and analyst community.

The survey, conducted by industry analyst firm BARC and one of the largest of its kind, continued to show top rankings and leading positions of SAP Analytics Cloud across four peer groups, including large international business intelligence (BI) vendors, integrated performance management products and data discovery–focused products.

“The results of The BI Survey 19 show a very high level of user satisfaction for SAP Analytics Cloud, which provides BI, augmented analytics and planning capabilities in one solution,” said Gerrit Kazmaier, executive vice president, SAP HANA & Analytics. “SAP HANA Cloud Services, which includes SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP HANA Cloud, brings data and analytics much closer together so customers get more value out of their data and can make fast, confident decisions without doubt.”

Key findings for SAP Analytics Cloud from The BI Survey 19 are:

  • 97 percent of the surveyed users would recommend SAP Analytics Cloud, up from 96 percent in 2018
  • 91 percent rate SAP Analytics Cloud functionality for creating dashboards as good or excellent, compared to 80 percent for the average BI tool
