Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
This solution is very fast.
It has a very huge bandwidth and data transfer.
Provides us with predictive capabilities for asset maintenance, and real-time forecasts.
The most valuable features are the Shared-nothing architecture and data protection functionality.
The feature that we find most valuable is its ability to perform Massive Parallel Processing.
It handles large amounts of information with a linear performance increase, in relation to a HW investment.
It has a solid set of tools and consulting services.
It has massive parallel processing ability to do large amounts of concurrent querying.
It has given our business the ability to gain insights into the data and create data labs for analysis and PoCs.
Cuts time to process huge amounts of data with efficient analytical queries.
A conventional and easily defined way to build a data warehouse or a layer of data marts.
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.
The inclusion of a well-performing Time Machine is vital.
The solution is very expensive, however. The pricing depends on the number of users and many other factors that affect licensing.
Needs graphical programming without coding.
The user interface needs to be improved.
I would like to see an improved Knowledge Base on the web.
It needs a teaching web site with more training on third-party tools used for BI.
We tried to use case Teradata for a data warehouse system, but we had some problems in relation to the Teradata system, CDC tools, and source databases. We were unable to transfer data from HPE Integrity mainframe to Teradata.
There is a need to improve performance in high transaction processes, as well as the reporting system.
Query language and its functionality are rather limited, compared to Oracle or even SQL Server. However, it is possible to perform any kind of logic in it (though some workarounds may be required).
Data ingestion is done via external utilities and not by the query language itself. It would be more convenient to have that functionality within its SQL dialect.
Needs compatibility with more Big Data platforms.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
The price needs to be more competitive as Hadoop, Redshift, Snowflake, etc are constantly making way into EDW space.
We are looking for a more flexible cost model for the next version that we use, whether it be cloud or on-premise.
Price is quite high, so if it is really possible to use other solutions (e.g. you do not have strict requirements for performance and huge data volumes), it might be better to look at alternatives from the RDBMS world.
Teradata is expensive but gives value for money, especially if you don't want to move your data to the cloud.
It is still a very expensive solution. While I very much like the pure technological supremacy of the software itself, I believe Teradata as a company needs to become more affordable. They are already losing the market to more flexible or cheaper competitors.
