What is most valuable?

We do not have enough experience with the wider range of this product to evaluate this at this time. There is too much we have yet to explore.

What needs improvement?

Because we have been mostly testing the product and still have limited production implementation experience with it over the past six months, we have not been so heavily involved with Cloud Platform… more»

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

I'm not sure about the exact pricing because I do not really deal with pricing information directly. But it is my understanding and my experience that SAP's pricing is usually high compared to the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used and continue to use this and other products in this category. Before this Cloud Platform, there was another Cloud from Dell called Boomi. I worked with that product for a while — long enough… more»

What other advice do I have?

The SAP Cloud Platform Integration is a really good pathway to integrate with the cloud. SAP started with the HANA Cloud Integration and then they changed that and now call it is Cloud Platform… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It is not really a competing product, but I have been using S/4 by HANA AIF (Application Integration Framework) for eight months or nine months. Mostly, I am dealing with a certain product integration… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the content modifier. These are the mapping features that allow us to create cloud connectors. The content modifier also allows us to perform data… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has provided the means for our connectivity. The endpoint URL on the ETFs that we were using is on the public cloud. The problem is that the public cloud API could not access our private… more»

What needs improvement?

We would like the ability to create our own flexible data type, directly in the system. This is functionality that is available in the older, on-premises version, but not available on the cloud… more»

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

Licensing costs for this solution are based on the number of users and the bandwidth. SAP is more expensive than other solutions, but they have total prepackaged content for ERP. They have a vast… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using the cloud platform, I had used the on-premise SAP integration solution for almost five years. I have also used other solutions to integrate with SuccessFactors.

What other advice do I have?

When you are using an on-premises version, you need to spend money on the dedicated infrastructure, licensing costs, maintenance, support, etc. In a cloud system, SAP Cloud Platform provides a… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this product is the scalability inherent in it because it resides on the cloud.

What needs improvement?

This product needs a lot of improvement and should be simplified. It is really clumsy. You need a lot of connections running just to get it working. Even though it is a private cloud, we need a lot of connection speed and resources. I would… more»

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

The rates are client-specific because they are negotiated. The actual rates may be classified, even for me.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I was a consultant working with encryption. My part in that consulting team was working with SAP and since the beginning, I was working with S/4HANA. Right from early 2016, I have been working on mobile applications. I was working on mobile… more»

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to people considering this solution is that there are a lot of open platforms and tools available. SAP, in particular, is very expensive unless you have an enterprise organization that can afford to use it… more»

What is most valuable?

One of the best features of this solution is that it is web-based and you can log in and work on it from anywhere. This solution can connect to multiple sources including Oracle, ODBC, OLD-DB and most of the cloud systems.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more and better support for data transformations. A transformation is able to change data from one format to another format. In the current solution, pivoting data or dealing with multiple levels of transformation is not… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used BODS as we moved to SAP IBP we were forced to move to CPI/DS.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is updated automatically every three months. My advice for anybody who is migrating from BODS to Cda is to ensure that whatever was done in BODS is capable of working in Cda. There are a lot of transformations missing. The… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't have another choice as it is mandatory with SAP IBP.

What is most valuable?

At the moment the most valuable aspects of the solution are the project management and finance features. The CPS is very good. It's suitable for various sizes of companies. I have used it with big companies and with small ones as well. The BI design is simple compared to other SAP products.

What needs improvement?

For our organization, the price is the main downside. They should work to reduce the cost. This specifically affects small companies who would like to use it. The solution should work to simplify its offering to make it more consumable for users, especially new users. The solution requires more… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have previously used different solutions. We've used Microsoft products where they create more capabilities more frequently, and we've used Google's platform. Google is similar to SAP in that it's more scalable and easy to consume. We've also used Oracle, which is very similar.

What other advice do I have?

We're SAP customers. We're using the latest version of the solution. I'd advise other companies to do an assessment with their internal employees or internal functional heads before jumping into any solution. It shouldn't be just one person doing the assessment. They should all do it together and… more»

What is most valuable?

The cloud is the most valuable aspect of the solution. It's the future of IT. SAP has provided very good support. The solution is very scalable.

What needs improvement?

We need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this.

What other advice do I have?

Our data center is on SAP's cloud platform. SAP is our cloud. I'd recommend the solution. The future is in cloud platforms. Other companies should start using it if they aren't already. The enterprise portal's end of life is 2024. However, the solution's extending into HANA Cloud Technology. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is integration. The integration with multiple other tools and our data allows us to perform analytics and our reporting requirements.

What needs improvement?

One thing that can be improved is the way the license is set up. If it could be defined by specific types of users then it would be better. For example, if it could be divided into three different sections, one for management who don't require the analytic work, it could be more for viewing. Another could be for the design department, which would require more specific tools, and finally… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have yet to explore all of the features. I would suggest completing a POC before purchasing this solution, or any other solution. Then, going ahead with it once the requirements have been satisfied. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the data synchronization, or the push and pull of the data.

What needs improvement?

The functionality of the interface can be difficult. Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information. Security, authentification, and logs need to be improved. In the next release, I would like to see better navigation, better usability, clearness, and… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we were using Microsoft iOS. When using 3D, Microsoft is an easier tool to use. iOS is a complex tool to understand. Also, Microsoft support is better.

What other advice do I have?

The decision is with the customer and what they want. We have had bad experiences or negative ones in performance and with the functionality. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
