We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The core features of the solution we like are the reliability of the data transfer and the accuracy of data read and write. The stability of the solution is also excellent."
"There are some capabilities within SharePlex where you can see how the data is migrating and if it still maintains good data integrity. For example, if there are some tables that get out of sync, there are ways to find them and fix the problem on the spot. Since these are very common issues, we can easily fix these types of problems using utilities, like compare and repair. So, if you find something is out of sync, then you can just repair that table. It basically syncs that table from source to target to see if there are any differences. It will then replicate those differences to the target."
"Because of the volume of the transactions, we heavily use a feature that allows SharePlex to replicate thousands of transactions. It's called PEP, Post Enhancement Performance, and that has helped us scale tremendously."
"The monitoring is one of the greatest features in Process Orchestration because it is user-friendly and easy for somebody who is not experienced."
"The solution provides very good and central logging systems. It offers high flexibility with vertical and horizontal extend capacity."
"The product has good technical support but you usually will not need it because it is quite stable."
"The initial setup is easy."
"The most valuable feature is the seamless integration with backend systems."
"Great monitoring tools and has its own alert framework."
"The standard adapter with EBA abilities is the most valuable feature. It has good process integration."
"With the latest version what I find to be the most valuable are the REST, SuccessFactors, and Ariba Network adapters."
"The reporting features need improvement. It would be very good for users to have a clear understanding of the status of replication."
"I don't know how easy it would be to change the architecture in an already implemented replication. For example, if we have a certain way of architecting for a particular database migration and want to change that during a period of time, is that an easy or difficult change? There was a need for us to change the architecture in-between the migration, but we didn't do it. We thought, "This is possibly complicated. Let's not change it in the middle because we were approaching our cutover date." That was one thing that we should have checked with support about for training."
"I would like the solution to have some kind of machine learning and AI capabilities. Often, if we want to improve the performance of posting, we have to bump up a parameter. That means we need to stop the process, come up with a figure that we want to bump the parameter up to, and then start SharePlex. Machine learning and AI capabilities for these kinds of improvement would tremendously help boost productivity for us."
"The responsiveness of technical support needs to be improved."
"In terms of technical support, it would be helpful if they handled the tickets a bit faster when queries are sent to them."
"The monitoring governance offered by SAP is too technical and needs to be geared more toward business users."
"It does not have all of the industry-standard solutions available in PO and it is not plug and play, so we have to do a lot of development."
"The older version of the solution will no longer be supported."
"The cloud capability features need improvement."
"I feel that support is an area that needs improvement. They need to improve the response time and address the customer's issues as soon as possible."
"The usability is an area where it can be improved upon."
"It is not as expensive as Oracle GoldenGate and has worked really well within our budgets."
"It's really good value for the money. There are some things they could improve on, but in terms of the pricing, features, and support, as a holistic package, we are not thinking of anything else at this point in time."
"The cost of SAP products is quite high but the quality is really good."
"The pricing for this solution is fine."
"There are fees in addition to the licensing."
"It's not an expensive solution."
