We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The scalability of the database is absolutely guaranteed by the new features."
"The stability of the solution is very good. I wouldn't have used it for the past seven years if I was not satisfied."
"The solution overall is very, very good. It's got good integration with other databases and adds new features often."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is the data aggregation function."
"It has a very huge bandwidth and data transfer."
"This solution is very fast."
"If you want to scale with new processes and new reports, that's fairly easy."
"The most value for us was in terms of using it to issue tenders online. We host our server, but it is open to the public, so clients who want to buy those tenders were able to go online, put their tender documents up, and we could evaluate them using SAP."
"Integration is the most valuable feature we use SAP HANA for."
"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 support is not that great. They're not really supporting directly anymore and relying on experts to figure out technical issues."
"Sometimes MySQL does upgrades on the server. When we are still using the old server and when they integrate the upgrade, they don't carry along some of the old syntaxes. The versions don't sync."
"The solution should offer memory management."
"Integrating business intelligence or NLP solutions would help us save time and would prevent us from having to take a deep dive. Data problems seem to multiply on the system when you interact with it. Automation would save a lot of man-hours."
"The technical support is in need of improvement."
"The solution is very expensive, however. The pricing depends on the number of users and many other factors that affect licensing."
"The inclusion of a well-performing Time Machine is vital."
"In terms of improvement, the speed is not as good as we thought it would be. That is why we are trying different solutions that will be built with different technologies."
"The interface is a little bit hard to customize. You almost have to consult the SAP original developer to change it."
"FI, or the financial module of SAP, has room for improvement. It has to have some better localization for the Middle East, especially in regards to taxes and the letter of credit cycle. I would like to see better localization from the HCM."
"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."
"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."
