  • This is published by a research entity, not some lowbrow entity that is part of the SAP ecosystem. 
  • Second, no one paid for this article to be written, and it is not pretending to inform you while being rigged to sell you software or consulting services. Unlike nearly every other article you will find from Google on this topic, it has had no input from any company's marketing or sales department. As you are reading this article, consider how rare this is. The vast majority of information on the Internet on SAP is provided by SAP, which is filled with false claims and sleazy consulting companies and SAP consultants who will tell any lie for personal benefit. Furthermore, SAP pays off all IT analysts -- who have the same concern for accuracy as SAP. Not one of these entities will disclose their pro-SAP financial bias to their readers. 

What Are Embedded Analytics?

Embedded Analytics is just a fancy name for reports in Fiori for S/4HANA.

How Many Embedded Analytics?

Fiori is counted by SAP regarding the number of apps that can be found on the Fiori Library. We performed two searches, one for Analytics and another for Reports.

The Fiori Library shows 252 apps for “Analytics.” 

The Fiori Library shows 1492 apps for “Report.” 

It should be mentioned that the apps exaggerated in number. Furthermore, these apps do not work immediately after S/4HANA is implemented. There is quite a bit of work to stand up for these apps.
