Provides integration and ease of access to reporting; UI could be more user friendly
Pros and Cons
  • "Provides very good integration."
  • "User interface could be more user friendly."

What is our primary use case?

The database server is used for the operations of the entire company, both financials and operationals. I'm the executive director, and we are users of this solution. 

What is most valuable?

The financials is the most valuable feature for us in operational terms because we deal with a lot of services and SAP has integrated everything for us, both financial reporting and operations.

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see a more friendly user interface. The solution is complicated and some of the field engineers, who are less exposed to the solution, are having problems which could be solved by simplification. The concern is that the data they provide might not be accurate and simplification would resolve that issue. I think the management feels that more can be done to get better value. The issue is not the performance of the product but the usability for people who are less skilled in using it.

Additional training would be helpful, but because of the nature of operations, those that support staff from the office find it easier because we spend more time using it than those in the field. Most of our engineers are on rigs, so it's a bit difficult getting them to come off the rigs for training, because that would require our operations to shut down. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This product is very stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is very good. We scaled up gradually from module to module and didn't have any problems. 

How are customer service and support?

We signed on for technical support from the initial consultant but when that didn't work, the second consultant finished implementation and provided support. We haven't had big issues that have required a lot of input so it's hard to rate. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Sage. 

How was the initial setup?

The consultant we used was not as competent as we had expected, so it was a bit of a drag and took some time. At some point we changed consultants and that helped. The migration period from Sage to SAP took a while but we got there - it wasn't a very smooth ride. For a while, management was concerned about the bumpy ride to implementation. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is expensive but it's worth it for our company. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered Oracle as an option, but it was a no go area because it was too complicated. For our purposes, there wasn't really any competition.

What other advice do I have?

It's important to make sure the product fits your requirements, otherwise it's a waste of money. We needed to solve workflow management issues, that was very, very critical. There might be cheaper applications out there that can solve other issues. 

I rate this solution a seven out of 10.

It can match code and the database index to index data in the programming language
Pros and Cons
  • "I like that SAP ASE can match code and the database index to index data in the programming language. There are many other valuable features, such as the table buffer, tuning, and various control agents like dispatcher. SAP ASE can handle many different data types, including views, domains, data elements, structures, objects, and various table types that are most useful in the application. Its modularization technique is also handy."
  • "SAP should refine its debugging method, and the process needs to be a little faster. It should use more Pragmas and fewer pseudocomments. I would like if SAP added more features based on advanced technologies, like artificial intelligence and voice control. The modularization and if-else techniques could also incorporate the latest technology to code and solve complex problems. The SAP Editor should be more elaborative, and it should allow many more types of statements for all uses."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use of SAP ASE is to create scripts and fields to store various types of data. Its programming language allows you to elaborate on everything in the output part of the code and all the data in the given program. You use various statements, like "select," "or," "nor," and many others. The functional part of the programming language is more or less is similar to C.

How has it helped my organization?

SAP ASE improves our daily data collection. The application list viewer helps produce the absolute modules, improving both the functionality and readability of the programs.

What is most valuable?

I like that SAP ASE can match code and the database index to index data in the programming language. There are many other valuable features, such as the table buffer, tuning, and various control agents like dispatcher. SAP ASE can handle many different data types, including views, domains, data elements, structures, objects, and various table types that are most useful in the application. Its modularization technique is also handy.

What needs improvement?

SAP should refine its debugging method, and the process needs to be a little faster. It should use more Pragmas and fewer pseudocomments. I would like if SAP added more features based on advanced technologies, like artificial intelligence and voice control. The modularization and if-else techniques could also incorporate the latest technology to code and solve complex problems. The SAP Editor should be more elaborative, and it should allow many more types of statements for all uses.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using SAP ASE for more than a year. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used SAP SE. Now I use SAP ASE, which is a more advanced version.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The setup cost is a bit expensive, but the pricing and licensing are just right.

What other advice do I have?

I rate SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise eight out of 10.

Stable, underrated, centralized database

What is our primary use case?

Our company offers consulting for professional services and we currently use this to store database backups in the cloud.

What is most valuable?

This is a wonderful database that is, in my opinion, underrated. Users are able to get the most out of my experience by taking advantage of its centralized environment.

What needs improvement?

I think that the solution needs to be positioned better within the market as it appears as though the Adaptive Server is being left out of the SAP scope.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for about 30 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This has proven to be a very stable solution over the years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

How are customer service and support?

There is lack of good support in Mexico - I would prefer Oracle or IBM over SAP in terms of support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very easy, especially when in comparison with other competitors. The whole process takes about fifteen minutes.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
