Q: Is there a user limit for SACEE?
A: yes, it’s maximum 150 concurrent user sessions per customer and per tenant at a time.
Q: What are key differences between SAC Enterprise edition and SACEE?
A: SAC Enterprise edition is the complete license of analytics that supports the 360 degree analytics with full capabilities like BI, planning, predictive and Analytics designer with both Live and import data connection.
SAC Embedded edition is available as a service on top of BTP under CPEA. This variant is meant for the application developers who would embed SAC and makes the analytics available for the end users within the context of the business application’s UI. From features point of view, SAP Analytics Cloud, Embedded edition only offers the BI capabilities and no Planning, predictive and analytics designer capabilities available with this variant.
Q: How does user interaction works in the case SACEE?
A: SAP Analytics Cloud, Embedded edition has a reduced scope and functionality. Therefore, most of the backend setup has been made available only through the APIs and not through the user interface. This applies for steps like creating the connection, tenant configuration, authentication and user/team creation etc.
