Power BI Vs. SAC – One page reference


I collected the technical comparison resources based on the information available on SCN links for reference in one place.

This is more like a Superman VS Batman comparison to me…Funny part! Tough call since both have a different and equal fanbase to debate and both got the power!!! In the SAP world, SAC is a “definite winner” since its easy and proven integration with SAP products flawlessly running on-premise or any hyperscalers.

Power BI has a large customer base since it comes free with office 365 customers as a bundle, it too got a smooth integration with MS Excel since long way. Anyone who’s familiar with Office 365 can easily connect Excel queries, data models, and reports to Power BI Dashboards—helping to quickly gather, analyze, publish, and share Excel business data in new ways.

Besides both are equally powerful and insightful dashboarding platforms to leverage on cloud or on-premise doesn’t matter.

Advantage SAP Analytics Cloud –
  • Better fact-based decision making and improved business performance for SAP Customers.
  • Best use of data with the integrated organizational planning features.
  • More effective use of analytics with extensibility across devices and applications.
