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

Pros
The most valuable features are the speed of reporting and the HANA database.The most valuable aspect of this solution is that the infrastructure is easy to understand.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 feature is the dashboard.The solution is easier to maintain than traditional SAP products.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.Out of the box, this solution has a lot of standard features.The processes are the most valuable aspect of this solution.

Cons
It takes too long to escalate problems from the first level of support.Pricing would be a good improvement. A lot of customers think that it's very expensive and especially support is very expensive.Not a ten because it's expensive and its ecosystem is not very open.The dashboard should be simplified and made easier for exploration and decision making.The solution does occasionally get a few bugs, but this is typical for any product.In the next release, I would like to see their BI component introduced with a mobile version, as it is not currently present.Connecting multiple sources is a challenge because you have to go through a lot of different setups.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.

Support is an area where it could get better.Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be.When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow.Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly.It needs integration with multiple clouds.It should provide a GUI interface for data management and tuning.Monitoring tools need to be lightweight. They should not take up heavy resources of the main server.If you do not utilize the tuning tools like projections, encoding, partitions, and statistics, then performance and scalability will suffer.
