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

Pros
I like the talent, recruitment, and learning features the most.The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM).HCM is a very important module that each organization should want to use. It will help any organization to calculate and control the cost of their human resources.The user interface is the solution's most valuable feature. It makes it easy for us to use.The stability of the solution is good.All of the core processes are very valuable aspects of the solution. These include personnel, administration, organizational structure, and payroll.The master data where most of the reports were run from was the most valuable. We were quite satisfied with this module.The most valuable feature, in my view, is the level of exceptions or error messages that come back when something goes wrong.

The solution has improved our organization by helping us cut hours and lessen our labor force. It saved us probably over $100,000 in just the last couple of years.

Cons
I would like it to move more towards a single data space, a single data source. SAP as a platform relies on multiple data sources because traditionally, it's been bolted together by the acquisition of other products rather than a single database. That's why there are lots of points of failure and lots of required points of integration. They need a single integration point.This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly.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.

The solution could use better reporting with standard reports. We use the Cognos platform in BI for a lot of our reporting. However, they need to have more robust standard reporting available to their user base.

Pricing and Cost Advice
SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot.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.
