"The most valuable features are the exit points that enable integration with external software."
"Infor LX's most valuable feature is that it's very interactive."
"I have been using SAP for more than 13 years and the new SAP S4HANA was not only a simple upgrade, they have made a lot of improvements. They have simplified a lot of the functions, the all-new interface gives users a better experience. The database itself is quite efficient in nature and it provides effective data queries. It is a good upgrade from the previous version of SAP R/3."
"It is the most stable solution provided by SAP and can be used on all levels."
"From a technological point of view, the in-memory database is one of the key highlights."
"I find everything I need in S4/HANA."
"It is really fast. It is also very stable."
"It seamlessly integrates with all the SAP Business Suite products such as IoT, AI, Analytics and all other SaaS solutions. The product is very robust and comprehensive."
"S/4HANA offers a lot of additional capability with respect to performance due to its in-built architecture for many functions including finance, production, quality, manufacturing, inventory or sales distribution and logistics."
"The key modules that I find most valuable are material management (MM), financial accounting and controlling (FICO), and human resources (HR)."
"The connectors, performance, and knowledgebase availability can be improved."
"Infor's support side is not that good, and they seem to be focusing on other products above LX."
"Their yearly licensing is expensive. Improvements are needed on the user experience level and digital work."
"Technical support has been declining. They aren't as responsive as they used to be."
"We are always looking for a better user experience. We would like to see more consolidation in SAP S4HANA because of all the financial compliance and regulatory changes."
"The install can be difficult. There's something called secondary sales solutions that is not there in SAP. We need to have third-party tools to integrate to do the automatization. The two parts are missing on the secondary sales solution and automation."
"The two things that need to be improved are price and customization."
"The solution could improve by making customization easier. The on-premise version is a lot more flexible."
"While the solution contemplates a competitively priced model, its pricing could be cheaper."
"SAP S4HANA is not suitable for all-size companies. If you have a small company there are better fit solutions for your needs."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by SAP S4HANA users.
A Mechanical Engineer at a construction company says, “It is a very powerful, highly customizable tool. The most valuable feature is that the reporting is fast. We can see the results from that in that our commissions come in fast. That is the main advantage.”
Another reviewer, a SAP Technology Manager at a financial services firm, mentions, "It is more or less a very, very smooth and seamless product. Day by day they are increasing their technology features and they are keen to resolve the issues. India has a complex business scenario and SAP is thinking about that and resolving the issues day by day. In terms of the features I have found most valuable, I don't think that there is any lack or any gap process-wise. SAP is a very good tool."
A Project and Service delivery Manager at a tech services company comments, "One of the most valuable features, which we used the most, was the FI module, for finance. It involved controlling, account receivables, account payables, and complete financial steering."
A Senior Architect at a construction company states, “The POD applications are very useful to us. There are a few POD apps which we are using for different business scenarios. They are quite interesting.” He also adds, “The initial setup is pretty straightforward. The documentation is very good. The solution can scale well. The solution is stable.”
