We use this solution to review processes the parent company implements in China. Extra configurations on the system are included based on optimization proposals, and we can optimize the functions to the requirements. In addition, I work as a certified MM consultant and have access to minimal usability functions.

In the past, it was a pure on-premise solution. As the market has gone on, SAP is all also delivering hybrid or public and private clouds. Because you can configure SAP for huge automotive factories — like Rolls-Royce and Mercedes-Benz, for example — they do have some development inside of these kinds of software. Therefore, it's really difficult to bring everything into the cloud. So, although SAP is making a lot of business with the hybrid or private and public cloud solutions, I think there are still others who would like to use solutions other than pure cloud solutions. This is my impression.

Primarily, I'm the account manager for an account that has the largest SAP implementation in the world in the utility segment. It is being used by a national utility service provider, and they use everything SAP, except for SAP SuccessFactors. We primarily have on-premises solutions being sold in this region for the utility companies. In UAE, there are a lot of data residency regulations because of which cloud solutions are not preferred. Companies prefer on-premises solutions.

When the company merged, we decided that we wanted to continue using SAP ERP because all the processes were much more mature, especially when it came to finance. The main value was the convenience for finance to run and manage the business. The finance team was more comfortable using SAP, so that's why it was decided not to change the solution.

It's the biggest and the most prominent ERP system in business, globally, and it can be used for almost anything. This is one of the biggest advantages of SAP - having so many modules and supporting so many different industrial sectors. Therefore, it would be hard to find what the SAP can't do.

We are a consulting company and SAP ERP is one of the products that we implement for our customers. Our primary role is to advise them on tools and strategy, including business use cases that they want to transform. With ERP, we are working with customers who are looking for S/4HANA transformation, mainly from a greenfield approach. For RPA, we want to add some value in the business case because the business case of the S/4HANA transformation is not so easy to find. So we use some techniques like RPA to find more money around this transformation. Right now we try to automate some functionality, which is not yet really good, within ERP. We really want to connect via API to the RFP tool to S/4HANA in fact. We do business consulting or IT consulting, and do not provide support. We do advise them on tools and strategy, including business cases that they have to transform. We work with them up to this point and do not do the implementation.

In this company, we are using only two modules, which are for purchase and sale. There is some part of the financial process involved as well. What our company has is not an enterprise version of SAP. So in my experience with the company, when I am modeling the purchase process, is not the same as using the full SAP ERP process at all. We use a process model in which we are utilizing SAP for some stages and after that, the process goes to another BPMS (Business Process Management Solution). We use Camunda BPM for additional processing. The major problem that we have using SAP ERP in Iran is that we can not customize our complete process in compliance with regulations when using the full version and all its features. This has to do somewhat with the process we want to use. Customizing ERP SAP for what we need to do is very expensive and it is not within the budget of many companies in our country. So the company I work for is seeing SAP as one, two, or three parts of a larger process and using it where we can. It is really the most important problem for the people in my country when they are using SAP ERP. They can not model their process exactly in the standard processes of SAP. The customization is too expensive (it is not low-code). That is the reason that SAP is not more widely used in my country. It needs to be customized (coding) or it is not going to work the way it needs to for compliance. if your company is in low level of maturity, it will be hard or even impossible that processes follow the SAP default processes. Companies pay a lot of money for SAP ERP and large companies in Iran are paying for that and it is said that the project was a mistake due to not knowing what was needed and what SAP was providing for them. But all the people I know can not afford the cost to make it work the way it needs to.

Hi all within SAP there are two products:  SAP Business One and SAP S/4 HANA SAP Business One as per SAP is for Small and Medium Enterprises and SAP S/4 Hana - is for Large enterprises SAP Business One (as per SAP) is an entry-level product with limited functionality like sales, purchase, AR, AP, MRP, Inventory Production and project management and the rest of the functionality is done through customization wherein  SAP S/4 Hana has a full-blown module related to large organization MM (Material Management), FICO (Finance and Costing), PP (Production Planning),  PS Project system and can be customized as per the requirement with large user login. Cost for both systems has a big difference: Business One is approx. starting at $160K for 10 users and SAP S/4 Hana starts at $ 700K for 10 users. Hope that answers the query.
