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.
