A huge update in SAP Analytics Cloud wave 2018.17 for platform administrators! It is now finally possible to get more insights in the actual usage of your SAP Analytics Cloud environment. Who is using which story at what time. Furthermore, we can now easily see relations between SAC objects. For example, what roles and teams are assigned to a certain user.
This data is made available via a couple of built-in models and you can create your own stories for reporting on it. This is a huge step forward, as before we had to make manual exports of the Activity data into CSV files, clean the data and use MS Excel (or import the data again into SAP Analytics Cloud) to do an analysis. Also we could use the SAC API to get information about objects. Anyway, it was not very convenient to do this on a daily base.
In the video I show you how to activate this functionality and how to use it to create your own monitoring story.
