Pros
"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 initial setup is straightforward. It usually takes around eight months but it depends on a customer's requirements. We can spend a month or two customizing.""The memory is the solution's most valuable feature. It's the main feature of HANA.

The solution is quite fast.""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 performance is very, very good.

Cons
"The performance and integration with other products are areas in need of improvement.""The documentation can be improved in the future.""The product is very demanding on memory requirements.""The solution is very expensive for us.""There could be better management for faster updates, last year there were some changes in India to the e-invoicing feature.""SAP HANA is not perfect and they could improve by having more options and more integration.""A documents preview could be helpful.""Technical support should be more customer-friendly."

More SAP HANA Cons →

"I would like to see more integration with many different types of data.""Teradata needs to expand the kind of training that's available to customers. Teradata only offers training directly and doesn't delegate to any third-party companies. As a result, it's harder to find people trained on Teradata in our market relative to Oracle.""I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved.""Teradata should focus on functionality for building predictive models because, in that regard, it can definitely improve.""It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data.""The solution is stable. However, there are times when we are using large amounts of data and we can see some latency issues.""The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale."
