We performed a comparison between Microsoft Azure and SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Infrastructure as a Service Clouds (IaaS) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"There are a lot of things that we like about it. It is very easy to provision and configure. It is flexible and scalable."
"One of the most valuable features of Azure is that it's a very integrated solution. You have to learn how to use it properly, but it's not that hard, and you can define your whole scrum process and deploy it from one place. It was a really nice surprise to see how easily integrated this tool is."
"Azure services like EDM and Batch are all famous, but one of the most popular services for development is Azure Functions, especially the PaaS option. Depending on a customer's environment, they can go for the PaaS."
"If you have large traffic amounts, Microsoft Azure will continue to provide our customers with the best storage experience."
"It's stable, easy to use, reliable, and cheap."
"The solution is very stable for Windows setups."
"It is very easy to use, especially if it is on the servers. Also, I have found it to be easier to use than AWS. It is a stable and scalable product as well. I think it is also secure."
"This is a very stable product."
"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."
"I am impressed with how the solution integrates with the ME system and ALE IDocs."
"The processes and the way we take advantage and use assistance are good."
"It is a stable and scalable product."
"This solution is as good as any other S/4HANA SAP solution. The continuous support we get is very valuable."
"The BTP module is important for digital transformations."
"Fiori is the most valuable feature, as well as the the integration between S/4 and another solution as an extension."
"In a month, there is a plan to increase pricing, which is something we are not looking forward to."
"The authentication method only allows me to have up to 90 users, and there are 2,300 people in the company."
"The response time and stability of Microsoft Azure need to be improved."
"Its subscription price could be cheaper."
"I would like to see better policy-based management and everything related to security management could have been better integrated."
"We have faced some issues on the pricing side, but it has improved lately. We are trying to adjust to the new pricing methods that they are using now. It should be better from now on."
"The solution could be easier to use. However, when comparing it to AWS it is a bit easier."
"The solution could improve by having more security features around my data and the platform."
"The cost could be improved. I think it's higher than the competition."
"The only thing that could be improved is the cost."
"Perhaps minor changes to the enterprise structure could be made, but the rest is fine."
"The SAP products are complicated to deploy anywhere."
"SAP support isn't on par with products like Microsoft Azure or AWS. It's nowhere close to the competitors."
"Customers need to be better educated about using the solution's cloud for digital transformation."
"The solution needs to embed or integrate with IBP to fully activate the PPT module with efficiency."
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform, where developers can create, deploy, and maintain their apps. This cloud application platform allows developers to concentrate on the actual applications, while it takes care of all the elements behind the apps.
Windows Azure works across multiple frameworks and languages. It is fully scalable, localized in that it is hosted globally in many datacenters, and has widespread capabilities with elements of application development, deployment, and management.
Azure is comprised of several different service modules, including Infrastructure; Web; Mobile; Dev & Test; Big Data; Media;Storage, Backup & Recovery; and Identity & Access Management.

"It is a flexible solution that is straightforward to use," says the principal consultant at a computer software company.
OmarJ., future datacenter consultant: Microsoft Azure Cloud at a tech company, adds that "The user interface is very nice and makes everything easy to use."
“You can build an environment in minutes. It's very good in terms of being an infrastructure as a service, and I found that really fascinating,” says an information technology consultant at a computer software company.
"I think Azure's level of automation to achieve efficiency or agility is valuable. I also like the change capability cadence, the showback capabilities, and understanding what our costs are," says an enterprise architect at an energy/utilities company.
Marco C., Ing. at Wolters Kluwer, says "The valuable features of Microsoft Azure are that it is cloud-based and has good storage. The storage is completely managed by Azure. We do not need to do any patching of security because it is handled by Azure which is a benefit. The solution is fully compatible with the Microsoft technology stack and is very scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is it has everything together in one place. It is one large tool with lots of small tools that are updated often," says the owner of a media company.
