Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This solution is as good as any other S/4HANA SAP solution. The continuous support we get is very valuable.""The processes and the way we take advantage and use assistance are good.""The solution is stable and we have never had a problem. We started with one terabyte of data when the solution was first implemented and today we have around almost 600 gigabytes of data, which means means the compression works properly. Before migrating from ECC, we had nine terabytes of data.""The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past.""Fiori is the most valuable feature, as well as the the integration between S/4 and another solution as an extension.""Traditionally, SAP worked with Oracle databases, but SAP is getting rid of the other databases and promoting its own. SAP will stop support for other databases around 2026, so everyone is moving to SAP S/4HANA for the performance and because it's the preferred database for SAP. S/4HANA has new features from the front-end or application feature perspective. The idea is to move toward future-ready technology."

Cons
"The only thing that could be improved is the cost.""Perhaps minor changes to the enterprise structure could be made, but the rest is fine.""The cost could be improved. I think it's higher than the competition.""SAP support isn't on par with products like Microsoft Azure or AWS. It's nowhere close to the competitors.""This product is not mature enough at this point in time.""The solution is scalable from an infrastructure point of view. However, it becomes more complex over time because technology is changing so fast."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "If you choose the minimum, it will probably cost around $1,000 USD per month if you take a contract for a year or two."
  • "The licensing of the solution is on a yearly basis. The normal price of the solution is quite high, but I received a special discount by making a purchase near the end of the year."
  • "The solution could be less expensive."
  • "The price is expensive compared to the competition."
  • "The price is high compared to other databases, which is why HANA is still not widely used. Some enterprises prefer Sybase, Oracle, or other traditional databases because HANA is a little pricey. Cost is one factor SAP needs to work on to make it more competitive with other databases. Otherwise, they'll never be able to develop a mass customer base."
