The SAC Data Analyzer is an ad-hoc analysis tool built-in the SAP Analytics Cloud platform, which works in a similar way as the classic BEx Web or the Analysis for Office plugin for Excel. For some unknown reason you could only access the Data Analyzer via a specific URL; not via the SAC menu (adding a content link in the SAC Catalog would be the most straightforward workaround). I always found this really a shame, as probably just a small part of the SAC community has ever seen and used it, while it is an easy tool to access your (live) data without having to go through all the steps to build a SAC model and a story.
Luckily this changes in QRC2021.4 and Data Analyzer will be much more featured within SAC. A good reason to have another look at it. Check out the video!Posted in: SAP Analytics Cloud, Video
SAP Analytics Cloud is kicking 2021 off with some very useful updates regarding its self-service features! In release 2021.1 the Explorer gets a much more prominent position in the SAC stories. For the Data Analyzer it is now finally possible to store your analysis.

SAP Analytics Cloud version 2019.14 introduces a new cool feature: the Data Analyzer. With the Data Analyzer we can instantly report on BEx Queries in SAP Analytics Cloud, without having to create a model first (don’t panic, HANA views are also on the roadmap). For those who have used the Lumira Designer “Generic Analysis Template” or the BEx Web Analyzer this will all look very familiar. So time to check it out in a short video!Posted in: SAP Analytics Cloud, Video
