Cons
SAP now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client.The implementation of the solution can be a bit difficult. They should make it easier. If it could be as simple as the SuccessFactors implementation that would be ideal.SAP is not ready to sell the license on time and delays the progress of projects. It's better to work with a competitor like Oracle. Those that are selling the product just go through powerpoints and don't have the knowledge necessary to sell. They can't answer any questions.The organizational structure visualization could be improved in future releases. The solution has a very poor interface.It is a bit tedious and manual to work with.It takes a long time to apply an update patch to the system.On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development.System usability is a challenge.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue.Licensing is pretty complex. SAP does not have a straight forward way of licensing, and it differs from client to client.The terms on which you buy licenses might change due to the way they license in a particular product.For implementation, SAP offers little support unless you buy SAP Safeguarding from SAP Consulting.Be careful and guard against future changes in licensing.

The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users.
