SAP Business Suite Review

There is hardly any customization required for it, if implemented correctly. The UI needs improvement.


What is our primary use case?

Complete suite and it works. Good thing about SAP is the product is mature and has the talent to support it. No other vendors, like Oracle, Sage, or Microsoft, have the maturity of the solution or they require too much customization.

How has it helped my organization?

Strong financials for project/logistics integration and most of the functionalities, like interco posting and MM-SD consolidation, work out-of-the-box. 

Most of the integrations work out-of-the-box. The only thing that you need to spend on ABAP is reports. There is hardly any customization required for SAP, if you implement it correctly. 

What is most valuable?

FICO, especially newGL. It solves a lot of manual consolidation issues. Other than that, interco posting and cost management are a lot better compared to Oracle or Sage. 

What needs improvement?

The UI: To train one user on SAP ECC takes at least two weeks. Though once familiarized, people can remember shortcuts and t-code for the change management is still high. Thanks to the vast majority of large organizations using SAP, the user adaption is a lot less if users come from SAP/GUI environments. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
