Recommendations to others considering the product
It is a great tool for any organization having complex analysis requirements such as regression analysis, forecast models.Have a very clear understanding of what you want to get out of this before making any decisions. There are a lot of products involved, and the licensing options are also varied. It can be very easy to make a mistake when purchasing. But I will also say that SAP is a wonderful partner and very willing to work with you.
