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

Pros
The actual interface is good.

The memory is the solution's most valuable feature. It's the main feature of HANA. Others are still the regular IT databases that are on storage and are therefore much slower than HANA. The solution is quite fast.The user interface is very good. You can do any kind of reporting analytics from the platform.The data storage requirement is reduced from the original database to the HANA database.The functionality is of the solution is very good.One feature I find very valuable, is the response time of the application on the database memory.Integration is the most valuable feature we use SAP HANA for.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.If you want to scale with new processes and new reports, that's fairly easy.

Cons
Because the solution is customized. we do occasionally face unique bugs. There are always some changes that need to be made here and there.

Unlike other databases, it lacks management features that legacy databases like Oracle or SQL servers have. They need to make the solution easier to manage and offer tools that make management more effective. A lot of things you have on traditional databases you have to develop into HANA.When you do a report on a non-SAP platform, you face some compatibility problems.I think that the pricing is high and it needs improvement.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.If the developers were to enhance or improve the application logic while processing the transactions, that would be great.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.The interface is a little bit hard to customize. You almost have to consult the SAP original developer to change it.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
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?Set up a consortium of consulting partners and hardware vendors to define your tech. Landscape TCO (total cost of ownership) and then approach the OEM for pricing (on-premise or on cloud or a hybrid model). Check if you can bring your own licenses for some of the existing application licenses on the new platform, to reduce TCO.
