SAP S4HANA on AWS Room for Improvement

For the cloud part, it's very good. However, some customers are a bit skeptical and a bit hesitant regarding putting their data on the cloud. And, even if they want to put their data, the business transactional data, or their company data on the cloud or not, you will still have to take care of all these licenses from a security perspective. Just recently, we had a European client who wants to work with the SAP system, however, they don't want to go on the cloud. They want to go with the on-premise solution. This is possible. For this particular solution, with the AWS angle, it won't necessarily work for them. We'll have to go with the client's requirements. We'll host on-premises.

The integration part is quite secure and stable. Only the part from the customer side that's been raised is regarding their data hosting part on the cloud. Otherwise, we don't see any issue with hosting SAP on AWS. It's always good to have on there since it reduces cost. It reduces your maintenance-wise integration also. 

They are a very big company and their own data centers although you have to make all these protocols and service agreements so that the data will not get lost. You have to take proper care of the data. You have to take daily backups before any availability or any optimization. On-premise we also used to take backups, however, it was very manageable.

There are a few complexities when it comes to licensing that could be simplified.

The product can be very complex.

It is not extremely user-friendly.

If you want to learn SAP S/4HANA the resources are not available and it's very difficult to learn. We found that aspect very difficult.

Whoever developed the current system that my clients have are no longer available and both engineers have retired, the solution's hardware has become a black box and they don't know how works. They spend an awful lot of time figuring out systems. They should reduce the ID expenditures.

If you go to AWS's site they offer training programs that are very good. SAP does not do the same, if SAP could provide some training that would be great.

There are other solutions that can connect with SAP S4HANA on AWS but there is not a lot of information that is provided on what they can do. If they could provide these details it would be helpful.

The initial setup could be easier. It's complex.

SAP S4HANA on AWS could improve by having the entire solution available as a web solution. They only have Fiori right now, and it's a solution for certain modules, but not for all the modules that SAP currently has. We would like to see the GUI removed, it is not very good. We want it to be web-based.

SAP S4HANA could be improved by adding a click-to-deploy model.
