We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The initial setup and deployment are simple."
"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."
"We've had good experiences with technical support."
"Its in-memory capabilities are good, which is why many companies still use it."
"The solution is extremely stable. That's the most important aspect of the solution, for our organization. There is no downtime, and the performance is very good."
"This is a feature-rich product and I like all of them."
"All features are valuable."
"We are looking for more features to support distributed high availability and geo-partitioning."
"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."
"The solution is very expensive for us."
"SAP HANA is a very proprietary tool and there's not as much support available for it as there is for an SQL Server (which is more popular)."
"I'd just like to see some more improvements done on the training, both on the functional training and technical training sides as a part of the complete solution."
"Technical support should be more customer-friendly."
"They can improve their technology for the CRM subsystem. There are other products that are better and more effective for the CRM subsystem. Its price could be better. It is expensive."
"It is expensive, which isn't a problem for us because SAP HANA is processing the data so fast."
"SAP HANA is an expensive product."
"It is expensive."
"Setup and licensing require planning and proper budgeting, as it is not cheap."
"The price of the solution could be reduced, it is expensive."
"The price of this product is good."
"We pay $200 on a monthly basis."
"The price is high and could be a bit cheaper."
