What is most valuable?

The power of ABAP Development Tools is the main valuable feature in the SAP ECC system. Every couple of years SAP upgrades ABAP technology significantly, which facilitates developers' work.

SAP ECC consolidates five to seven back-office systems under one platform in our organization.

What needs improvement?

The user interface has room for improvement. SAP is working on it and the improvements are on the way.

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

SAP ECC is not cheap but I consider it the best system for managing an organization's data and processes.

What other advice do I have?

SAP ERP is the best product for managing all back-office processes in a large organization. All data is stored in a single system which includes one database.

It needs to incorporate the new features from the SAP S/4HANA release, such as, utilizing data processes, which is quite nice. Also, SAP S/4HANA has a good visualization feature that should be added to this product.

What other advice do I have?

Check what features you need, which features the solution solves, and look at features are already in the product. When selecting a vendor, look at the pricing, as well as the support and their knowledge.

How has it helped my organization?

SAP has provided a much more integrated platform for managing our manufacturing business.

What do you think of SAP ERP?

MDG provides a central location for governance of the creation/updating processes of master data. It allows you to change several fields in the same object. For example, we can change a field on the purchasing view and change another field on an accounting view to the same…

It runs our company. We try to put as much into the system to have data consistency. Heavy integration is available with all types of systems, and we use it.

I use SAP for logistics transactions. I test SAP transactions to make sure they work correctly and train colleagues who are SAP users.
