Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Provides a significant amount of control over the landscape and overall implementation.""The solution can connect to different systems i.e. mainframe, IMS or AS/400 Legacy Systems.""The main benefit of PowerExchange is its native real-time capabilities. Competing tools are counting on third-party packages or Oracle to offer real-time capabilities. However, Informatica has a native ability to scan the data on the file system level and capture the changes almost instantly when I push it to the consumers. The solution has a powerful built-in replication engine."

"The solution is stable.""The solution is easy to use.""The initial setup was straightforward.""In my opinion, SAP PO is the most mature suite of tools to integrate processes across SAP environments at this moment. It's really unbeatable because it allows you to integrate whatever scenarios you can imagine.""The solution offers very good documentation and manuals to assist with understanding the solution.""The most valuable features of SAP Process Orchestration are the standard APIs that we can use.""With the latest version what I find to be the most valuable are the REST, SuccessFactors, and Ariba Network adapters.""SAP Process Orchestration is middleware where we are able to manage and interact with everything from a single location. One of the most beneficial areas is monitoring which is very easy because it is all in one place. There are many adapters added recently that can be used for new functionality. The solution is easy to operate and it is more mature than the cloud solution provided by SAP."

Cons
"The major shortcoming of PowerExchange is high availability and failover. None of the versions we've used to date have had the out-of-the-box ability to enable failover and high-availability requirements. This is a significant challenge and risk.""The solution could be made more user-friendly. The configurations are also quite difficult.""Should diversify more, maybe with a reporting and visualization utility,"

"In terms of technical support, it would be helpful if they handled the tickets a bit faster when queries are sent to them.""The usability is an area where it can be improved upon.""The solution could be more scalable.""The solution is not very scalable because it is at the end of its life.""The solution could improve by making it more user-friendly by limiting the code required. We have to add some code in some cases where we need complex logic or some other functions. If this was able to be done in a more simplified manner then it would save a lot of effort and time.""SAP Process Orchestration could improve from an API standpoint. This is not an API management tool, which is one of its drawbacks. However, SAP has released an SAP Cloud Platform Integration which has all of the features, such as API management along with process integration to replace what they had previously.""I think the main area that SAP PO should improve on is offering pre-delivered content like they do when you use SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI). SAP should not forget that they still have a lot of customers using Process Orchestration and they should focus more on providing pre-delivered content in SAP PO.""It is not a scalable solution for the cloud. I would not recommend this for the cloud."

  • "There are fees in addition to the licensing."
  • "It's not an expensive solution."
  • "Looking at market conditions, vendors nowadays are giving products at very low price levels. However, SAP Process Orchestration have not yet reduced their prices. The prices could be reduced a lot to stay competitive."

  • "The price of SAP Process Orchestration was reasonable."
