Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The speed is very good compared to other databases, like SQL Server or Oracle.""The solution is hands-off; you set it up insert your data and it self tunes queries."

More Exasol Pros »

"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.""We've had good experiences with technical support.""Its in-memory capabilities are good, which is why many companies still use it."

Cons
"They don't talk very well to with other products when it comes to connectivity. Integration is lacking.""Lacks a cloud-based platform."

More Exasol Cons »

"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.""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)."
