More SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise Pros »

"Its in-memory capabilities are good, which is why many companies still use it.""The solution is extremely stable. That's the most important aspect of the solution, for our organization. There is no downtime, and the performance is very good.""We've had good experiences with technical support.""The performance is very, very good. It's one of the best aspects of the solution.""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 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."

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."

"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).""I'd just like to see some more improvements done on the training, both on the functional training and technical training sides as a part of the complete solution.""The solution is very expensive for us.""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 user experience should be better. Its user interface is not good. I also don't like the transition concept.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"It is expensive, which isn't a problem for us because SAP HANA is processing the data so fast.""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?"
