  52. 52. © 2019 Visual BI Solutions, Inc. All rights reserved. www.visualbi.com 52 SAP Analytics Cloud Frequently Asked Questions § Is SAC going to replace all the existing SAP analytics products in long run? Yes, Definitely. As the entire technology world is moving towards cloud, this would be the most likely scenario option going forward. Once, reporting comes to SAC then it would become a reality. § How well is SAC positioned within BI market? SAC is positioned in such a way that it can cater to all kinds of reports and users across all levels § Can we schedule SAC stories/reports like we do in BOBJ? Models can be scheduled. As SAC will allow us to create formatted reports in the future, we expect it to have the scheduling feature similar to how we have in the BOBJ systems.
