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

Pros
One of the features that I've found most useful is that It's very simple. They take care of the technical aspects of the data, installations, patches.There's a minimum amount of downtime when using the solution. This platform is very effective.The solution does provide quite a lot of support, upgrades, automated batch updates, etc.What I like the most is that we can convert databases into a proper multi-dimensional model, and then we can project with the integration with Power BI.

This product is currently the leading product within this category.The HANA database is a valuable featureI like that they are very familiar with our VM which makes it easy to use.The Fiori interface is the most valuable feature. It's one of the highlights that they offer. The in-memory of S4 is very fast.This product is much better than most of the other products in this categaory as far as financial capabilities.There are two main features that we find very valuable. One is the interface and the new user experience. That's really, really helpful for the end-user. The second is the HANA database itself because it speeds up the process. In other solutions, like Oracle, there is a lot of redundancy that slows things down.This solution has one of the most modern databases and it is very stable.

Cons
They should probably offer more cloud services. Most of the cloud infrastructure providers we have make everything pretty transparent, you know what you're getting, you have all these metrics and measurements and everything in the dashboard. Here you have to go through the contracting negotiations and all those things.The customer has a lot of dependencies on SAP which means they don't have much flexibility to go and update the system when or if they need to. They will need to wait for the quarterly updates. It's possible to maybe raise a special request with SAP if it is absolutely necessary.Our data centers are in Europe and come under GDPR regulations, and this doesn't apply to the Middle East yet. It causes a lot of confusion.The stability needs to be improved to be able to handle large amounts of data.

The product could use more capabilities in the areas of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, but these improvements are already on the way.Doesn't have a common development environment.I would like for them to have more integration with virtualization platforms.Not just S4 but for SAP in general, the price is a little high because they have implemented a new licensing scheme on a number of connections. The price being too expensive is some of the feedback we get from our customers.The GUI is age-old, the pricing is too high for hardware and older customizations are not working consistently.The solution needs a warehouse management feature. Right now, there's a built-in WM, but they don't have an EWM extended warehouse management built-in, in S/4HANA. It's a separate product. So if they can add that, that would be great.This solution is very resource-intensive, including high memory and CPU utilization.
