"The most value for us was in terms of using it to issue tenders online. We host our server, but it is open to the public, so clients who want to buy those tenders were able to go online, put their tender documents up, and we could evaluate them using SAP.""Integration is the most valuable feature we use SAP HANA for.""One feature I find very valuable, is the response time of the application on the database memory.""The functionality is of the solution is very good.""The data storage requirement is reduced from the original database to the HANA database.""The user interface is very good. You can do any kind of reporting analytics from the platform.""The feature that I like the most is that we can transport the data to our web data application. SAP HANA's performance is really perfect. We're working on big data, and SAP HANA is really working on high performance. We are happy working with it.""The performance is very, very good. It's one of the best aspects of the solution."

"The interface is a little bit hard to customize. You almost have to consult the SAP original developer to change it.""FI, or the financial module of SAP, has room for improvement. It has to have some better localization for the Middle East, especially in regards to taxes and the letter of credit cycle. I would like to see better localization from the HCM.""If the developers were to enhance or improve the application logic while processing the transactions, that would be great.""The challenge right now is all databases are on S4 HANA architecture. You're running it for HANA, but not all the functionalities are available. If they can speed up getting all the databases on S4 HANA that would help.""I think that the pricing is high and it needs improvement.""When you do a report on a non-SAP platform, you face some compatibility problems.""The user experience should be better. Its user interface is not good. I also don't like the transition concept.""There's an issue in the partition. When you record more than two million records, partitioning does not work well. In Oracle it's easy. SAP must resolve this issue in order to be more competitive with Oracle."

"People who are technical will accept the cost, but financially they will assess whether this solution will bring them revenue or not.

Top Answer: The in-memory computing and the efficient response time are very good features.
Top Answer: We pay for a maintenance license, and the licensing cost is high. In general, it is a very expensive solution.
Top Answer: Because SAP HANA is completely in-memory, it requires the use of bigger systems which have a higher amount of RAM. If the system does go down then coming back up is difficult and can take 30 to 40… more »
