We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The way we can make changes in new fields, or make new rules with our IT department, has been very useful.""The most valuable features of SAP Business One on AWS are the CRM and the sales module.""Setting up Business One is straightforward. It took us about three months to deploy Business One on AWS.""Technical support from SAP is great.""SAP Business One on AWS has good documentation and has many services in the cloud."

"SAP has an auto-scaling feature, but Azure doesn't.""The system has the capacity to manage all these departments in a single box and they're all integrated.""It is indeed a stable solution, but it depends on how you architecture the component in AWS. If the component has the right architecture and is properly provisioned and placed, then it will be a stable platform.""SAP S4HANA's most valuable features include backup, security, storage, infrastructure, and enabling AI.""We have approximately 1,000 people using the solution in my organization. The solution is scalable.""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.""The most valuable features of SAP S4HANA on AWS are that it's simplified and the analytical capabilities are good.""The solution is scalable."

Cons
"The look-and-feel of the system is quite outdated as compared to a lot of other products out there.""I would like SAP to replace Business One's fixed Web client with a native Web solution. Right now, their remote access is based on RVP. We have to access the solution through a Windows-based client. It's not a native Web interface.""The solution has a feature that shows you the purchase order that you put on a project and requires you to approve it to be applied to the project, but it doesn't let you move the purchase order to another project. That would be a great feature to have, because if you don't approve it, you have to delete everything and make it again.""SAP Business One on AWS could improve by having more customization and more user-friendly automation.""SAP Business One on AWS could improve by adding more functionality to the web client."

More SAP Business One on AWS Cons →

"More availability zones will help customers choose AWS. I would like to see features that provide easier onboarding for ERP solutions like SAP. SAP has already partnered with S/4HANA on AWS for hosting its public cloud as well. More educational videos for customers to choose this cloud path would be great to have. That is, providing more documentation and marketing material would be better.""The initial setup could be easier. It's complex.""There are a few complexities when it comes to licensing that could be simplified.""The documentation isn't clear enough.""I would like to see a lower price for the solution.""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.""SAP S4HANA could be improved by adding a click-to-deploy model.""SAP S4HANA on AWS could improve by having more data centers because there are limited data centers in the region I am in. Amazon AWS has announced a few more data centers to be added, but they're still not 100 percent operational for SAP solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Licenses are available on a monthly or yearly basis, and it costs about $1,200 per license, per user."
  • "The price of SAP Business One on AWS could be lower, it is expensive."
  • "The price of SAP Business One on AWS is reasonable for what we use it for."
  • "We have an annual cost for licensing and storage in AWS."
  • More SAP Business One on AWS Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The vendors have different pricing, ways of serving, security, and providing the service. You go and compare the offerings. Some might be better with smaller companies. For example, Microsoft Azure can handle small and medium-sized companies best but still can cover some large companies. Whereas Amazon AWS and IBM are going to cover sized companies. There's no clear advantage. Probably Amazon AWS may have been the first to be certified by SAP as a cloud-hosting partner. Then Microsoft Azure and IBM were certified at the same time. You have to partner up and be certified by the software."
  • "We pay a monthly fee for the use of SAP S4HANA on AWS for approximately five years. That's the time of the contract."
  • "The price of SAP S4HANA on AWS is reasonable, given how much it costs to maintain a scratch-built system. To upgrade the support there is a fee."
  • "SAP S4HANA's pricing model should be more flexible and transparent - there's a lot of negotiation and internal factors, and some customers get better value and services for the same product."
  • "I would rate the pricing as a two and a half out of five."
  • "Compared to its competitors, SAP S4HANA on AWS is a costly solution."
  • "It's expensive. It would be good if AWS and Azure could reduce the computing cost for people who move to the public cloud."
