#AskSAP Community Call: SAP Cloud for Analytics

Last week, I had the honor of moderating the latest #AskSAP Community Call covering one of SAP’s newest and most exciting products: SAP Cloud for Analytics.

I was joined by Gerrit Simon Kazmaier, Vice President and Head of Engineering, SAP Cloud for Analytics, SAP and Ivo Bauermann, Global Vice President EPM and Finance Solutions, SAP.

The call was in roughly three sections:

  • During the initial introduction, I tried to be direct as possible, asking the top questions I’ve heard from customers, including “Couldn’t SAP just have extended existing products to the cloud?” and “Why isn’t it free for customers with maintenance?”.
  • Gerrit did a long live demo of the solution, giving some glimpses of the impressive breadth of the new solution that combines many features that were previously restricted to separate products.
  • Ivo and Gerrit then took questions from the audience on a wide variety of different topics, including language support, pricing and packaging, addressing security concerns and cloud server locations, etc. etc.

SAP Mentor and ASUG volunteer Tammy Powlas did an excellent job, as usual, of noting down the key highlights of the call, and the whole call is available as a recording — enjoy!
