Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Normally, every database server uses hard disks. In-Memory has a feature, apart from their database, which is very good. When we start our server, all your data needs loading memory. We can use that. It's a very good feature. I think they added this feature in 2019. We can mount memory in the partition, create partitions in there, and create table space from that spot to share. It's a really good feature. We use it a lot.""The solution is very fast.""The scalability of the solution is very good. It's able to support large amounts of data.""The most valuable aspects of this solution are the fast caching and improved performance to the database""The application development is very user-friendly."

"One feature I find very valuable, is the response time of the application on the database memory.""The functionality is of the solution is very good.""The data storage requirement is reduced from the original database to the HANA database.""The user interface is very good. You can do any kind of reporting analytics from the platform.""The feature that I like the most is that we can transport the data to our web data application. SAP HANA's performance is really perfect. We're working on big data, and SAP HANA is really working on high performance. We are happy working with it.""The performance is very, very good. It's one of the best aspects of the solution.""We've had good experiences with technical support.""Its in-memory capabilities are good, which is why many companies still use it."

Cons
"We use some partitions in In-Memory. We have a very large table and a low dose. It is very expensive in data to load all of them into In-Memory. It takes up more memory slots in the server, as well as a lot of RAM. We use last partitions on the table. We always need to create a script and make a schedule that can load a last partition in In-Memory. Oracle doesn't have features to do this automatically. I would like them to allow us to load last partitions, as well as other table partitions, in In-Memory. I think a good feature would do that automatically, letting you see a table, load a large partition, and monitor loading memory. It's quite a good feature.""The solution is quite expensive.""Technical support is below our expectations currently. It could be improved.""They should lower the price. My customers think that it's too expensive.""The pricing could be improved. It would ideal if it was more reasonable."

"If the developers were to enhance or improve the application logic while processing the transactions, that would be great.""The challenge right now is all databases are on S4 HANA architecture. You're running it for HANA, but not all the functionalities are available. If they can speed up getting all the databases on S4 HANA that would help.""I think that the pricing is high and it needs improvement.""When you do a report on a non-SAP platform, you face some compatibility problems.""The user experience should be better. Its user interface is not good. I also don't like the transition concept.""There's an issue in the partition. When you record more than two million records, partitioning does not work well. In Oracle it's easy. SAP must resolve this issue in order to be more competitive with Oracle.""The solution is very expensive for us.""SAP HANA is a very proprietary tool and there's not as much support available for it as there is for an SQL Server (which is more popular)."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"People who are technical will accept the cost, but financially they will assess whether this solution will bring them revenue or not. People often ask, how will I profit when the cost is so high?""It is expensive, which isn't a problem for us because SAP HANA is processing the data so fast.""SAP HANA is an expensive product.""It is expensive.""Setup and licensing require planning and proper budgeting, as it is not cheap.""The price of the solution could be reduced, it is expensive.""The price of this product is good.""We pay $200 on a monthly basis."

Top Answer: The in-memory computing and the efficient response time are very good features.
Top Answer: We pay for a maintenance license, and the licensing cost is high. In general, it is a very expensive solution.
Top Answer: Because SAP HANA is completely in-memory, it requires the use of bigger systems which have a higher amount of RAM. If the system does go down then coming back up is difficult and can take 30 to 40… more »
