"We've had good experiences with technical support.""The main feature is that the processes are very flexible, they are able to be adapted to the business and their departments.""We like that the product is both vertically and horizontally scalable, allowing us to do around 86 percent compression of documentation from 50 to seven terabytes.""The solution offers advanced features that the company was struggling to implement.""The solution is extremely stable. That's the most important aspect of the solution, for our organization. There is no downtime, and the performance is very good.""The solution is easy to manage enterprise resources and the reporting and analytics are including. It is good for company growth and all module are managed well.""The initial setup is straightforward. It usually takes around eight months but it depends on a customer's requirements.

"Lacks a cloud-based platform."

More Exasol Cons →

"There's an issue in the partition. When you record more than two million records, partitioning does not work well. In Oracle it's easy. SAP must resolve this issue in order to be more competitive with Oracle.""There could be better management for faster updates, last year there were some changes in India to the e-invoicing feature.""Technical support could be better.""I'd just like to see some more improvements done on the training, both on the functional training and technical training sides as a part of the complete solution.""Technical support should be more customer-friendly.""It would be nice to know when SAP plans to stop its maintenance of a previous version of SAP ECC ERP because, at this point, anyone utilizing SAP will have no choice but to go on S/4HANA Database.""SAP HANA is not strong like Oracle when it comes to finance. They are only strong with the logistic business project.""The solution is very expensive for us."
