Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Provides multiple kinds of services for managing the clouds of multiple customers.""When I started using CloudSphere, it wasn't mature, and it had multiple issues. For example, my team experienced server issues while using the solution, but recently, I noticed how much CloudSphere has improved. There used to be some latency issues with CloudSphere. It even gave error messages in the past when you select an option such as "the web server is not responding", but it has improved a lot, and now I don't get any errors from CloudSphere. What I like best about CloudSphere is that it has a lot of beneficial features, and it has a single pane for managing multi-cloud environments, which I find very helpful, and it's the main benefit you can get from CloudSphere.""The product is helpful for the management, optimization, and utilization of resources.""For the customers I work with, it provides flexibility as far as storage is concerned, so it's security and access.""We do not need to install any appliances or any agents."

"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 interface is easy to manage.""The scalability is good because we have some cloud resources to support the ERP.""The processes and the way we take advantage and use assistance are good.""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.""Traditionally, SAP worked with Oracle databases, but SAP is getting rid of the other databases and promoting its own. SAP will stop support for other databases around 2026, so everyone is moving to SAP S/4HANA for the performance and because it's the preferred database for SAP. S/4HANA has new features from the front-end or application feature perspective. The idea is to move toward future-ready technology.""The solution's initial setup process is straightforward.""Fiori is the most valuable feature, as well as the the integration between S/4 and another solution as an extension."

Cons
"The next feature I would like to have full disclosure of what's being done with the data.""When we start the scanning of, for example, 500 servers, it will not handle the scan. We need to differentiate the jobs - for example, one job for 100 servers, a second job for another 100 servers, et cetera.""There are quite a number of services that can't be deployed using CloudSphere.""The main issue I experienced from CloudSphere was recently resolved, but an area for improvement in the solution is that it lacks the functionality of migrating resources from one public cloud to another. If CloudSphere could provide that functionality, that would be very beneficial to users and companies.""The solution must have a single management console for the resources and VMs."

More CloudSphere Cons →

"Customization is an area of concern in SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, where improvements are required.""It’s a common challenge with applications like Microsoft and SAP that they tend to rely on engineers rather than human resources personnel for knowledge and implementation.""This product is not mature enough at this point in time.""Enterprise Cloud's reporting could be more automated to improve content accountability, especially regarding BI reports.""Customers need to be better educated about using the solution's cloud for digital transformation.""The stability needs to be improved to be able to handle large amounts of data.""The product must provide more details of the errors.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It depends on how that model will be used. It might be anywhere between $4 and $15 per license per month. It’s less expensive than other options."
  • "The product is very expensive."
  • More CloudSphere 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 solution could be less expensive."
  • "The price is expensive compared to the competition."
  • "The price is high compared to other databases, which is why HANA is still not widely used. Some enterprises prefer Sybase, Oracle, or other traditional databases because HANA is a little pricey. Cost is one factor SAP needs to work on to make it more competitive with other databases. Otherwise, they'll never be able to develop a mass customer base."
  • "Our pricing is based on a yearly contract."
  • "The pricing is reasonable when compared to other vendors like Oracle who offer technology enterprise resource software."
  • "The product itself is relatively expensive."
