We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

The main feature that I like the most is the variety of solutions that it provides. It provides some analysis, business information and more. It provides a wide variety of services.There is less work for the DBAs. Everything is handled in AWS itself.The experience with Amazon AWS is error-free. That was also, of course, something that I really appreciate. That means it's really well-tested and, as published or as declared.There are a lot of features that I really like including ease of deployment, ease of build and release, and also that it is heavily focused on a PaaS or SaaS model.The most valuable feature is that it is simple.The most valuable features are load balancers, databases, and S3 buckets.The solution offers a low footprint. We don't have to come up with a data center ourselves. We basically don't have to own any hardware. We just rent a slice of their platform and we have everything we need.As a service vendor, we have helped clients to achieve faster "go to market" on their products, and have provided highly flexible cost-effective system management solutions.

Scalability is one of the benefits that we have in using the product.It's suitable for various sizes of companies. I have used it with big companies and with small ones as well.The most valuable feature is integration.SAP is an excellent company with an excellent reputation, excellent products, and dedicated customer support.SAP has provided very good support.The most valuable feature is the data synchronization, or the push and pull of the data.One of the best features of this solution is that it is web-based and you can log in and work on it from anywhere.The mapping transformation allows us to connect our on-premise ECC to the cloud system.

One area that could be improved is in data management. They could improve on the data side. For example, I see others with better cloud services and larger data computing capabilities.We don't know whether to increase server capacity or alert notifications. We don't know which hard disc to purchase or what the next recommended CPU is. There should be an indicator. We would like to have more guidance.I'm just bugged by the charges that I'm not really able to manage.One of the problems that I have seen is that some of the products are not as mature as others.They can launch the Oracle service in Azure, and we expect that this should be possible in Amazon AWS as well.There are some limitations for certain applications that happen regionally and it is an issue for us.They should really consolidate and make things simpler rather than offer you hundreds of random options. The way everything is arranged really forces users to figure out everything on their own and then, on top of that, to calculate the total costs. There's an infinite number of combinations even just with cost calculations. It's just too much.This solution would be improved with the inclusion of hybrid Kubernetes management.

My impression of the stability is that it is not good. Almost every month there is something new and that makes us nervous about delivery.The solution requires more flexibility overall.In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing.They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clientsWe need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this.Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information.I would like to see more and better support for data transformations.Better connectivity to on-premise systems would help us to support older systems that are migrating to the cloud.

The pricing can be negotiated.SAP's pricing is usually high compared to the competition. But this is also justified because they hold their products and services to quite high standards.Licensing costs for this solution are based on the number of users and the bandwidth.
