Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past.""There's a minimum amount of downtime when using the solution. This platform is very effective.""The solution is stable and we have never had a problem. We started with one terabyte of data when the solution was first implemented and today we have around almost 600 gigabytes of data, which means means the compression works properly. Before migrating from ECC, we had nine terabytes of data.""The solution does provide quite a lot of support, upgrades, automated batch updates, etc.""One of the features that I've found most useful is that It's very simple. They take care of the technical aspects of the data, installations, patches."

"The solution adds great value to any organization.""The Fiori interface is the most valuable feature. It's one of the highlights that they offer. The in-memory of S4 is very fast.""This product is currently the leading product within this category.""The HANA database is a valuable feature""This product is much better than most of the other products in this categaory as far as financial capabilities.""I like that they are very familiar with our VM which makes it easy to use."

Cons
"Our data centers are in Europe and come under GDPR regulations, and this doesn't apply to the Middle East yet. It causes a lot of confusion.""They should probably offer more cloud services. Most of the cloud infrastructure providers we have make everything pretty transparent, you know what you're getting, you have all these metrics and measurements and everything in the dashboard. Here you have to go through the contracting negotiations and all those things.""The customer has a lot of dependencies on SAP which means they don't have much flexibility to go and update the system when or if they need to. They will need to wait for the quarterly updates. It's possible to maybe raise a special request with SAP if it is absolutely necessary.""The solution is scalable from an infrastructure point of view. However, it becomes more complex over time because technology is changing so fast.""This product is not mature enough at this point in time."

"The product could use more capabilities in the areas of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, but these improvements are already on the way.""Doesn't have a common development environment.""The product can be very complex.""The GUI is age-old, the pricing is too high for hardware and older customizations are not working consistently.""Not just S4 but for SAP in general, the price is a little high because they have implemented a new licensing scheme on a number of connections. The price being too expensive is some of the feedback we get from our customers.""I would like for them to have more integration with virtualization platforms."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "If you choose the minimum, it will probably cost around $1,000 USD per month if you take a contract for a year or two."
  • "The licensing of the solution is on a yearly basis. The normal price of the solution is quite high, but I received a special discount by making a purchase near the end of the year."

  • "The licensing of the product is reasonable but the cost of the hardware is exorbitant."
