SAP Analytics Cloud – Best Practice Webinars

SAP Analytics Cloud is SAP’s strategic analytics solution and includes multiple functionality and features for BI, Planning and Predictive scenarios. All this can make getting the best out of the solution a little bit challenging, since there are so many things we need to consider.

In the Customer First organization we are working with the largest SAC customers worldwide and we know which are your pain points.That is why we decided to launch our monthly onboarding and best practice webinars back in April 2020. We wanted to tackle the most frequent challenges and share what we have learnt in the last years working with customers like you.

To be honest, we were very excited with your response, hundreds of you registered and we received very good feedback:

Fantastic webinar, the instructor shared a lot of knowledge, thank you all” – Webinar SAP Analytics Cloud Landscape Architecture and Life-Cycle Management

Very useful tips and tricks related to performance, thank you very much!” – Webinar SAP Analytics Cloud Performance troubleshooting and best practices

“very good and compact overview” – Webinar Working with a Cloud Service

After summer we thought, what can we do now to make the webinars even better? The answer was very easy, just run them again!

Starting in October and until the end of the year, we will be running the best practice webinars with live Q&A with the content creators and SAC’s Solutions Experts. We want to make sure no question remains unanswered.

Below you can find a brief description for all the webinars and a link to our registration page.
