Anthony DebyserBI Architect at ArcelorMittal
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a bit expensive, but really worth it, especially if you are already using other SAP tools."
"It is not the most expensive one. You have to do the cost-of-ownership analysis and take a lot of things into consideration to come up with the conclusion that it is cheaper or not, but its price is reasonable. It provides value for money."
"It's quite expensive and costs a lot to maintain, especially with licensing."
"It's not that costly as such for the time being."
"Its licensing is on a monthly basis."
"Compute and storage features should be sold separately."
"Its pricing is okay as compared to its competitors."
