The Basics of Modeling

SAP Analytics Cloud combines Business Intelligence, Augmented and Predictive Analytics, and Enterprise Planning capabilities in one product so everyone has the capabilities they need to make fast, confident decisions. The primary data source for these capabilities is an SAC Model, although Datasets are another possible source.

As always, the gathering of business requirements will drive the implementation process. The business requirements are normally driven by the stories and applications for the business users. As the components are set up and the stories and applications are built, it is important to do stress testing as soon as possible particularly where the stories are complex and have high data volumes.
