Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS.""It is easy to deploy applications, and we don't need to bother about software updates on the server. We don't need to bother about machines, servers, and hardware. We only need to care about the system and functionality that we need or want to develop. They take care of everything else. It provides high availability. It is a pretty good solution that provides everything that we need. It has everything that we need to run our applications. We have many different applications, and we generate three million bills for a company in Brazil. We see more than a billion requests per day in another application. Everything works just fine, and it is very good.""It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things."

More Heroku Pros »

"SAP has provided very good support.""The ability to expand it whenever required has been great — it's very simple.""The most valuable feature is integration.""Scalability is one of the benefits that we have in using the product.""Cloud Platform's stability is great.""SAP is an excellent company with an excellent reputation, excellent products, and dedicated customer support.""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 most valuable feature is the data synchronization, or the push and pull of the data."

Cons
"Heroku doesn't support Docker images on the CI infrastructure.""Their support is good, but they can improve their response time.""They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more."

More Heroku Cons »

"I would like to see more and better support for data transformations.""In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing.""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.""Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information.""They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients""We 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.""I'd like to see more local integration.""The solution requires more flexibility overall."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""The cost when it comes to monitoring can be difficult."
