SAP SuccessFactors People Analytics is NOT the same as SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP SuccessFactors People Analytics is NOT the same as SAP Analytics Cloud. I think this is the area that causes the most confusion in the marketplace, and appears to be a bit of a pivot from earlier SAP messaging.

For clarity, the SAP Analytics Cloud technology will be embedded into the People Analytics solution. This was explained by SAP SuccessFactors Director, Solution Management, Kim Lessley:

“We are embedding SAP Analytics Cloud technology into our solution. So...it’s important because I know there has been some confusion that we were moving SAP SuccessFactors People Analytics to SAP Analytics Cloud but that is not the case. So we are embedding SAP Analytics Cloud technology within our SuccessFactors products which means that customers will be able to leverage a lot of the SAP Analytics Cloud functionality without requiring a separate license for SAP Analytics Cloud…”
