Despite of numerous existing limitations already today SAC is a powerful tool for BI, Analytics, Predictive and business planning scenarios. We have been able to set up a complex consolidation application in SAC for an international organization with a dozen of legal entities. The solution included multiple stories for near real-time P&L dashboards with jump to detail reports, applying custom overhead distribution, consolidation rules and currency conversions.
With regular updates delivered by SAP we can count on improvements and fixes that will make SAP Analytics Cloud more mature and advanced. In my humble opinion, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud together with SAP Analytics Cloud have a good potential for replacing existing on-premise SAP Analytics solutions, such as SAP BO, Lumira, SAP BW and SAP BPC.
