What is most valuable?

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… more »

What needs improvement?

The new product has SuccessFactors. If they can bring it in on-premise as well, and basically replace SCM with SuccessFactors on-premises, that would be great. It will allow for more revenue. The solution's weakest area is technical support, which needs to be improved quite a bit. The solution needs… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing depends on a lot of factors. For example, which month of the year it is. Is it close to the end of a quarter year's end? Usually, we get the best benefit out of it if we know the exact ICP events. Otherwise, price-wise, they're expensive. If you know when their quarter closing or annual… more »

What other advice do I have?

We use both the on-premises and private cloud deployment models. I'd rate the solution 7.5 out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The features that are on offer are pretty standard. The pricing and services that surround the solution are great. For example, if we need to find a partner in a country where they do not have a cloud, they will help us find that partner. Solutions such as Amazon and Oracle do not offer this level of service. The solution has quite good documentation.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to provide a bigger portfolio of services. They had more options in the past. For example, they used to have some container services that they no longer have. The solution could use more advanced monitoring.

What other advice do I have?

I'd recommend the solution, however, everything depends on the services companies happen to be looking for. There are things which NTT doesn't offer but Oracle or Azure do. Everything is dependent on the company's requirements. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is simple. We don't use complex services for our small business customers.

What needs improvement?

When it was only Amazon AWS in the market, no one was concerned about the pricing. However, now that there are so many competitors, there is more comparison for cloud service providers. They should look into reducing the price of this solution to stay competitive. It would be a benefit. The current… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS.

What other advice do I have?

The deployment varies, as some of our customers would like the hybrid cloud while others want a public cloud. I have recommended this product to our customers and will continue to do so. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
