The processes are the most valuable aspect of this solution. You can try to change the way you do business with the customer while we tell the customer that we have Suite 4HANA that they need to adopt because we have at this moment and for that, we have a methodology that is SAP Activate. We use this methodology to discover what your business requirements are. You can get a glimpse of what it is in the ERP, because it's an ERP, and then you can discover which way you to do the business process with the new tools, instead of using the old ones. You need to adopt the business processes that are supported by this new tool, Suite 4HANA because otherwise, you will have the same issues that you had before in ERP in the compromised world when you had a lot of customization because you need to adopt the tool to your business process. We try to push for the cloud version because then you can leverage many other things that are not available in the on-premise version. View full review »

HANA is based on a column store, and it is very effective for reading the data. BW has a major advantage because most of the activities on the BW system are reading data rather than writing data. The product, overall, is very good. The solution is easier to maintain than traditional SAP products. All of the information that is provided by the solution for managing the HANA database is excellent. View full review »

From an ERP point of view and a functionality point of view, it works very well. The benefits are in that of financial costing and material management. The only component that is not fully known is the HCM (Human Capital Management), but we have gone with SuccessFactors. View full review »

1.It can calculate big data. One year ago, SAP BW took us a lot of time around four hours to finish our process chains, but now it's better. 2.It can calculate data in detail. Before we could not calculate financial documents and accountant documents in detail, we could not do it at a document level but now we can. This is the most important feature. It also has predictive analysis funationlity. View full review »
