We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The incorporation of several kinds of storage, such as SSD Premium, enhanced the performance of machines."
"The scalability is good."
"The most valuable feature is the single sign-on with multifactor authentication."
"We are going to use Microsoft Azure to move some on-premise servers into the cloud so that our data can be held there."
"The data factory feature."
"The time to market is fast compared back to the traditional on-premise hosting. That is one of the better things I can say because there is no need to worry. The Pack services will enable it to start immediately."
"It comes with a lot of ready-made studies that we can connect with other existing Microsoft applications, for example, Office, Outlook, Chatline, and OneDrive. Everything is behind the scenes running with Azure. It's easy to build the connectors."
"The most valuable features are the interface and customizability."
"This solution has one of the most modern databases and it is very stable."
"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."
"This product is much better than most of the other products in this categaory as far as financial capabilities."
"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."
"The HANA database is a valuable feature"
"This product is currently the leading product within this category."
"Virtual networks might be improved by adding more rules for the validation of protocols and peripheral elements in security assurance."
"I would like to see more advanced functionality in terms of information security."
"The subscription licensing is very complex and we would like to have it simplified."
"Microsoft Azure can be pretty advanced and difficult to understand. I would like it to be simplified. The licensing especially needs to be simplified."
"Auto ML could be improved technically."
"There were also a lot of constraints with the serverless parts."
"They are a bit closed on the customization side. If they open the customization then it will be very good."
"Dashboards and reporting could be improved."
"This solution is very resource-intensive, including high memory and CPU utilization."
"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."
"The GUI is age-old, the pricing is too high for hardware and older customizations are not working consistently."
"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."
"Doesn't have a common development environment."
"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 licensing fees are more than $1,000,000 USD annually."
"Reducing the price would be of benefit to our customers."
"The pricing for us is higher because we are using IaaS."
"Pricing of Microsoft Azure services depends on the build of what you prepare to deploy."
"It is important to consider ROI when looking at the cost of a subscription."
"The cost is a little high and can be more competitive."
"Monthly billing convenience reduced cost overheads up to 70 percent."
"The pricing model is subscription-based and it's not an expensive solution."
"Licensing fees are on an annual basis."
"The licensing of the product is reasonable but the cost of the hardware is exorbitant."
