Cons
"Even though the system has a number of features, design wise the user interface is a little bit complicated. It is hard for the user to navigate properly. Because the system has so many features, it has a lot of tabs and links. Sometimes, people get confused as to where to go and search."

More Saba Cloud Cons →

"The current platform is quite rigid and not as flexible and end-user friendly as other HR solutions.""The solution is rather expensive.""SAP HCM could improve by having more resources and making it more user-friendly. It is complex.""I'm currently working for a state-owned government company, and we need to follow some standards and regulations. We also have a strategy to be followed. Sometimes the template and the format are not available in the SAP HCM, so we have to work around this limitation. The tax also sometimes changes in my country, and we have to redo everything to change the payroll calculations, benefits, and things like that. The talent management feature can be improved. It is currently very simple in SAP HCM. SAP is also very hard to integrate. In terms of monitoring, there are no monitoring tools, but as long as we take care of the disk capacity, there is no problem.""The extensibility of the integration could be improved.""SAP HCM has many different channels for communication with the consultants which makes it complex. There are delays when there is a problem.""The speed of technical support can be improved.""I would like it to move more towards a single data space, a single data source. SAP as a platform relies on multiple data sources because traditionally, it's been bolted together by the acquisition of other products rather than a single database. That's why there are lots of points of failure and lots of required points of integration. They need a single integration point."

  • "The solution is a little expensive and we are charged per user for the license. The solution can be paid monthly or annually."
  • "The cost of SAP HCM is high, the license should be reduced. SAP HCM has a lot of hidden costs."
