Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"With the technical support, the response has been pretty good from the SAP side.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the integration with SAP ERP.""SAP Business Warehouse is a scalable solution.""The most useful feature is definitely the speed.""I like that it integrates to open-source.""What I like most about SAP Business Warehouse is that it's a seamless integration platform. A valuable feature in the tool is the monitoring alert that makes you aware of what process chain has failed. There's no manual monitoring required if you have configured an alert system, so the process chain can run in the background, and you can get alerts about it. The functionalities I find good in SAP Business Warehouse are alerting and monitoring. If you have configured the tool and have integrated it with SAP Solution Manager, then it's a good product to use."

Cons
"SAP Business Warehouse could improve by having more out-of-the-box use cases to cover more business types or operations.""In the next release, my suggestion would be to have user-friendly interfaces and performance issues be addressed.""SAP Business Warehouse could integrate better with other ETL tools.""The problem with BW, and the factor that differentiated it from the original BW, is that you only get limited functionality with your runtime license. So, you have to pay extra for extracting data.""It's a product that is at the end of life so they will not improve it anymore.""What I'd like improved in SAP Business Warehouse is its setup. It could be more flexible, and it could be a configuration-based setup."

More SAP Business Warehouse Cons →

"It is difficult when your native language is not English. It is difficult for us to explain our issue and also difficult for the technical team to explain a resolution to us.""There are performance issues in terms of scalability and availability."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's moderately expensive, but definitely has its branding and price value for it."
  • "It's quite pricey. SAP changed its pricing policy, so they give you one engine and then you have to buy everything next to it, like MSS, the BPC licenses, and everything else."
  • "The license for SAP Business Warehouse is paid yearly, and there's no extra cost in addition to the standard licensing fees."
