Pros

More Alibaba Cloud Pros »

"This solution has one of the most modern databases and it is very stable.""There are two main features that we find very valuable. One is the interface and the new user experience. That's really, really helpful for the end-user. The second is the HANA database itself because it speeds up the process. In other solutions, like Oracle, there is a lot of redundancy that slows things down.""This product is much better than most of the other products in this categaory as far as financial capabilities.""I like that they are very familiar with our VM which makes it easy to use.""The Fiori interface is the most valuable feature. It's one of the highlights that they offer. The in-memory of S4 is very fast.""The HANA database is a valuable feature""This product is currently the leading product within this category."

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

More Alibaba Cloud Cons »

"This solution is very resource-intensive, including high memory and CPU utilization.""The solution needs a warehouse management feature. Right now, there's a built-in WM, but they don't have an EWM extended warehouse management built-in, in S/4HANA. It's a separate product. So if they can add that, that would be great.""The GUI is age-old, the pricing is too high for hardware and older customizations are not working consistently.""I would like for them to have more integration with virtualization platforms.""Not just S4 but for SAP in general, the price is a little high because they have implemented a new licensing scheme on a number of connections. The price being too expensive is some of the feedback we get from our customers.""Doesn't have a common development environment.""The product could use more capabilities in the areas of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, but these improvements are already on the way."
