More SAP HANA Pros →

"The solution should continue to keep updating and improving the Java language.""In terms of improvement, I'd like an automation tool that is lower priced. The core prices are very high.""The biggest lesson that I have learned from using Oracle products is vendor lock-in.""Needs improvement in consistency issues with respect to timeframes.""It'll be better if Oracle Java supports open source technologies, like Node.js."

"The documentation can be improved in the future.""Uses a large amount of RAM and is costly.""SAP HANA is not perfect and they could improve by having more options and more integration.""The solution is very expensive for us.""High availability and disaster recovery are very poor in HANA.""There's an issue in the partition. When you record more than two million records, partitioning does not work well. In Oracle it's easy. SAP must resolve this issue in order to be more competitive with Oracle.""It would be nice to know when SAP plans to stop its maintenance of a previous version of SAP ECC ERP because, at this point, anyone utilizing SAP will have no choice but to go on S/4HANA Database.""There could be better management for faster updates, last year there were some changes in India to the e-invoicing feature."
