"The solution has proven to be quite stable so far."
"Azure's Data Lake services are decent. I like AKS, and API Management is relatively straightforward to use. The security and SIEM options Azure offers are good. All the infrastructure services are easy to use and set up."
"Everything is very good by way of performance."
"The most valuable feature is the instant availability of resources."
"Provisioning a server is fast, taking only one or two minutes before it is ready."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is its ease of use."
"It is easy to install."
"We have found the scalability to be good."
"The solution adds great value to any organization."
"SAP S4HANA on AWS has high performance. All the data is in one place and it's real-time. When you make an entry you don't have to wait a couple of minutes, hours, or overnight as something the batch process takes time. It is instantaneous and is available to everybody."
"SAP S4HANA's most valuable features include backup, security, storage, infrastructure, and enabling AI."
"The most valuable feature of SAP S4HANA on AWS is that when developed on a new structured system it can be configured."
"The solution is scalable."
"We have approximately 1,000 people using the solution in my organization. The solution is scalable."
"They have their own instances where you can host your database."
"At times, the support is terrible."
"The solution could improve the stability. However, this could be a configuration issue that we are not been trained."
"The level of authorization or authorization cascading can be improved. We have the most powerful admins and then we have sub-admins, but the level of authorization is not that easy to handle or manage."
"When we work with Microsoft Azure we deploy it in a hybrid system. We do many operations with the open stack and I used it for APIs connected to Microsoft Azure. The reduction is because those APIs and our tools that are required to connect are not for the Microsft Azure solution. It has a bit of complexity, nothing to do with Microsoft Azure as a CSP."
"There was a time when the solution was updated on their side and all of our functions stopped working. This issue could be worked on to prevent it from happening in the future. They must give us the information of when they are going to updates on the platform side so that we can take the appropriate measures on our side as well."
"Technical support is lacking right now. It needs to be better."
"The support, the cost, the way they have the tiers, this could all be improved."
"Technical support needs to be better."
"The initial setup could be easier. It's complex."
"SAP S4HANA on AWS could improve by having the entire solution available as a web solution. They only have Fiori right now, and it's a solution for certain modules, but not for all the modules that SAP currently has. We would like to see the GUI removed, it is not very good. We want it to be web-based."
"The drawback of this tool versus an on-site tool is that you've got to upgrade the tool. The software is upgraded as it gets upgraded and you've got to be ready to change whatever processes and do whatever training you need to do."
"If you go to AWS's site they offer training programs that are very good. SAP does not do the same, if SAP could provide some training that would be great."
"SAP S4HANA could be improved by adding a click-to-deploy model."
"There are a few complexities when it comes to licensing that could be simplified."
"The product can be very complex."

"It is a flexible solution that is straightforward to use," says the principal consultant at a computer software company.
“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.
