We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is that it's robust."
"The processes are the most valuable aspect of this solution."
"Out of the box, this solution has a lot of standard features."
"From an ERP point of view and a functionality point of view, it works very well. The benefits are in that of financial costing and material management."
"The solution is easier to maintain than traditional SAP products."
"The most valuable feature is the dashboard."
"It can calculate data in detail. Before we could not calculate financial documents and accountant documents in detail, we could not do it at a document level but now we can. This is the most important feature. It also has predictive analysis memory."
"The most valuable aspect of this solution is that the infrastructure is easy to understand."
"Unbeatable speed and compression with a colummn-structured relational database."
"I cannot integrate it with my other tools. It's not possible to do something in the predictive analysis. Mobile reporting is also not available."
"Connecting multiple sources is a challenge because you have to go through a lot of different setups."
"In the next release, I would like to see their BI component introduced with a mobile version, as it is not currently present."
"The solution does occasionally get a few bugs, but this is typical for any product."
"The dashboard should be simplified and made easier for exploration and decision making."
"Not a ten because it's expensive and its ecosystem is not very open."
"Pricing would be a good improvement. A lot of customers think that it's very expensive and especially support is very expensive."
"It takes too long to escalate problems from the first level of support."
"The organization who owns the product does not support it well and appears not to be doing significant development for the future."
"This is an expensive solution and there are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"We started as early birds from the SAP side. We got this entire suite for free. I cannot really talk about the price because we didn't have to pay anything."
"As an investment, the solution is very expensive."
"The only costs after standard licensing fees are for add-ons and upgrades."
