Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The features that we have found the most valuable are the integration of different third-party support and productivity services."
"The best part of Kofax is that they have a whole concept. It's one product, but also has extra elements that can be integrated."
"The drag and drop functionality is quite good."
"This is a stable platform and we did not encounter any big problems."
"It is stable and scalable."
"The logic is also simple. It makes it easy to build your extraction."
"The fact that it's built on SQL, it makes it easy to write code. The database and the connection are quite smooth."
"The user interface is ok."
"It is a powerful product with a broad range of features."
"The HANA database, which is very fast, is a valuable feature."
"The reporting on the data, even from third-party software, is very good."
"The maintenance of data services is the solution's most valuable feature."
"The most valuable feature is the logging capability."
"This product has room for improvement in support of aviation. The interface could be improved in the next release."
"I'd like to see a recording function and a more simple interface."
"The solution needs to be scalable."
"It needs a free training portal for anybody on the internet to use so that they can get an idea of what the possibilities are."
"There is really nothing special about the capabilities of this product."
"Exception handling needs to be improved."
"The product needs more AI capabilities."
"Scheduling of jobs in the sequence is not available. It's a very tedious process to do that particular task. If there was a tool to schedule in the sequence that would be extremely helpful."
"The description of error messages isn't extensive, although they point to the problem. With other solutions, like Talend, I was able to use the debugger to get directly to the problem, but with SAP Data Services the debugger is not working. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the version specifically, but I'm using it in an enterprise environment and I can't do an upgrade."
"The initial setup is complex."
"Newer feature integration is lagging behind the company acquisitions and the product could do more to service a broader range of devices."
"Integration with other products could be improved."
"The solution should offer more machine learning and automation."
"The pricing of the solution should be improved."
"The interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The normal price for an on-premises license is €50,000. That's the price for one robot license. You can have more than one robot license but only one can be run at any one time. I believe the cost of adding a second robot is around €14,000."
"Pricing is good, there is no problem."
"The pricing is a little high to make the product more competetive in the marketplace."
"Its pricing is as per the enterprise agreement and not a concern for us."
