More Alibaba Cloud Pros »

"What I like the most is that we can convert databases into a proper multi-dimensional model, and then we can project with the integration with Power BI.""The solution does provide quite a lot of support, upgrades, automated batch updates, etc.""There's a minimum amount of downtime when using the solution. This platform is very effective.""One of the features that I've found most useful is that It's very simple. They take care of the technical aspects of the data, installations, patches.""The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past."

Cons
"From a performance point of view, Huawei and Azure are faster. Alibaba isn't as good."

More Alibaba Cloud Cons »

"The stability needs to be improved to be able to handle large amounts of data.""Our data centers are in Europe and come under GDPR regulations, and this doesn't apply to the Middle East yet. It causes a lot of confusion.""The customer has a lot of dependencies on SAP which means they don't have much flexibility to go and update the system when or if they need to. They will need to wait for the quarterly updates. It's possible to maybe raise a special request with SAP if it is absolutely necessary.""They should probably offer more cloud services. Most of the cloud infrastructure providers we have make everything pretty transparent, you know what you're getting, you have all these metrics and measurements and everything in the dashboard. Here you have to go through the contracting negotiations and all those things.""This product is not mature enough at this point in time."
