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

"It is stable. It is easy to learn and very straightforward.""I like it because it's convenient. Google Cloud is also stable and scalable. The technical support is good as well.""I like that it is simple to use.""Simple to use on the web, and makes things easy for a software developer.""It's robust, and it has a wide reach in terms of office applications including storage.""This is a solution that's so easy to expand when you need it to. It's the best I've ever seen. It's much better than Azure.""This platform is popular with technical users because of the abilities for customization and fine-tuning performance.""It is easy to use and has a very familiar interface."

More Google Cloud Pros »

"This product is currently the leading product within this category.""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.""This product is much better than most of the other products in this categaory as far as financial capabilities.""The HANA database is a valuable feature""The solution adds great value to any organization.""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."

"There are issues with stability.""I would improve the integration with other devices such as smartphones. It is integrated in our company, but I think it could be improved.""The privacy could be improved so that it is more secure.""The management side for the database needs some work. Currently, you do everything from the APP. It would be nice to have an interface where you can go in and maintain data and deal with records and do something online.""I feel that the Google product is incomplete with regard to internal communications. It is an area that needs some improvement.""It could have a reporting tool included.""Uploading documents could be simplified.""Workload management could be better. Their pricing could also be more flexible."

More Google Cloud Cons »

"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.""The product could use more capabilities in the areas of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, but these improvements are already on the way.""The product can be very complex.""The GUI is age-old, the pricing is too high for hardware and older customizations are not working consistently.""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.""Doesn't have a common development environment."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It has a monthly subscription. The customers pay based on the usage.""It's not really an expensive solution, but it would be better if there were more flexibility in the pricing model.""The best part of Google Cloud is that it is cheaper than the competitors.""Google cloud is less expensive than other comparable solutions.""The licensing for Google Cloud seems to be quite cheap and they're actually quite reasonable in comparison to Azure, which, as it turns out, is quite expensive. Even though Azure has a data center in South Africa it's still quite costly. There's no scaling, so if you go with the VM, you pay 2500 Rand. When you add another VM, it's another 2500 Rand even though you don't use the whole thing. With Google, you can go up as incrementally as you need to, even if it's just 30 Rand.""I am not familiar with the pricing, but I would guess that it is probably cheaper than Microsoft Suite""The licensing cost is based on the capacity we use."

"The licensing of the product is reasonable but the cost of the hardware is exorbitant."
