    Useful dashboards, beneficial module integration, and helpful support
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable features of Business ByDesign are the integration of its modules, analytics, and dashboards."
    • "SAP Business ByDesign can improve the flexibility and user-friendliness of the reporting during the implementations.

    The clients we have for SAP Business ByDesign are mostly in education centers.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable features of Business ByDesign are the integration of its modules, analytics, and dashboards.

    SAP Business ByDesign can improve the flexibility and user-friendliness of the reporting during the implementations. Customizing the reports inside the device requires a lot of knowledge and most of the time a developer level is needed. For example, if you want to have a more specific reporting layout.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The stability of SAP Business ByDesign is stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    SAP Business ByDesign is a scalable solution since it is on the cloud.

    How are customer service and support?

    The technical support from SAP Business ByDesign is very good. They have supported us well and they are well known. The knowledge and skills they provide are helpful. They have knowledge of many of the SAP solutions.

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

    I have not used another solution other than SAP Business ByDesign.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup of SAP Business ByDesign is straightforward.

    What about the implementation team?

    We have one person that is well trained in the solution that does the maintenance. However, in most cases, the amount of supporting staff required is dependent on the number of users that the IT team is managing. In our case, since our clients are not that large, for deployment, one person would be enough to manage SAP Business ByDesign, as long as everything is done properly.

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

    Everything is included in the licensing cost of the solution. However, they use a per-user model for additional charges.

    What other advice do I have?

    My advice to others wanting to implement SAP Business ByDesign is they need to have a very good partner with a strong partnership with SAP and check their credibility and skillset from a technical standpoint. The partner will be handling their accounts. If the partner is good they should be fine. I rate SAP Business ByDesign an eight out of then.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    Private Cloud

    What is most valuable?

    We have to pay yearly.

    Useful reports, good reports, but could be more stable
    Pros and Cons
    • "I have found the consolidation of the business and group reports very useful. There is plenty of features and the manufacturing and finance aspect of the solution are strong."
    • "SAP Business ByDesign is a very vast product, but it has to be a bit more centralized. All the models need to be more centralized for a better experience."

    What is most valuable?

    I have found the consolidation of the business and group reports very useful. There is plenty of features and the manufacturing and finance aspect of the solution are strong.

    What needs improvement?

    SAP Business ByDesign is a very vast product, but it has to be a bit more centralized. All the models need to be more centralized for a better experience.

    In a feature release, a development kit should be available in the UIDs, where people can have the customizations. HR and payroll should be added and the human resource management system should be added by default.  

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using SAP Business ByDesign for approximately three years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The solution could improve the stability. It is approximately 60% stable. It still has to be stabilized in terms of the module device.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    SAP Business ByDesign is scalable, but there are limitations on the cloud. The solution could be more customizable. It's not recommended to have much more customization in the cloud product. It's scalable, but not to a very high level.

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

    The price of the solution could be better. They have to come up with a new strategy.

    What other advice do I have?

    I rate SAP Business ByDesign a seven out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    Public Cloud

    How are customer service and support?

    SAP's technical support is good - any time we've raised issues, they've fixed them.

    How would you rate customer service and support?

    Positive

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup was complex, but that was due to our business scenario rather than the product.

    What about the implementation team?

    We used an integrator.

    What other advice do I have?

    ByDesign is perfect for B2B scenarios but may not suit B2C. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.
