Analytic applications can be used to supplement your SAP Analytics Cloud stories. They provide the application developer with many more options than the standard Story design options, enabling developers to create a highly customized and interactive experience for the end user. However, an application can also be designed with even less functionality than a standard SAP Analytics Cloud story. This broad range of customization options–from very static to highly interactive–is possible through the SAP Analytics Cloud analytics designer.
