In collaboration with the UKI SAP User Group.

Event Details & Agenda


Welcome to the SAP Analytics Cloud Need to Know series of live webinars where  Dean Farrow (Lead Solution Advisor for Analytics and Planning Solution - LinkedIn Profile) will be showing you how to use SAP Analytics Cloud. Starting on March 7th 2023 and continuing (roughly) every 2 weeks (this may change), Dean will show you how to use SAP Analytics Cloud covering a number of key functional areas.


These sessions are aimed at organisations who already subscribe to SAP Analytics Cloud and users who want to create their own reports using SAP Analytics Cloud.


The sessions will be 1 hour long, where Dean will cover the subject matter in the first 30 minutes (approx.)  and then use the remaining time for questions and answers from the attendees.  The sessions will be recorded and shared afterwards,


We expect you to already have access to your SAP Analytics Cloud tenant, so that you can watch the webinar and then create the content afterwards, using the recording as guidance.


If you do not have access to an existing SAP Analytics Cloud tenant then please do not register for these webinars.


During the webinars we will be using a sample data set in Excel.  The idea for using this Excel data is that over the course of the weeks, each session will build upon the work done in the previous session.  Therefore having one consistent data set means that you will be able to replicate the SAP Analytics Cloud content yourself.


These sessions will concentrate mainly on the reporting side of SAP Analytics Cloud, however when the series has finished we will run similar sessions covering SAP Analytics Cloud planning and predictive functionality.


Please register for all of the sessions below.  Once registered you will receive invites for all of the future sessions.  If you register late and have missed one or more of the sessions, then don't worry as the link to the recordings will be made available in the invites so that you can catch up with the content.
