SAP HANA Other Advice

Managing Director at a consultancy with 51-200 employees
The main lesson is the importance of ERP capability, stability, and speed. The other lesson is about knowledge transfer because that is how you learn. At the end of the day, I like it because it's one of the affordable ERP systems. I would rate is as eight of ten. View full review »
Solution Architect at SAFE-SAS
The SAP portfolio is huge. It covers all industries and fields. It is very wide horizontally or vertically. It has modules for all industries, fields, and for all departments: accounts, HR, production, they have a solution for each industry and for each department in any organization. There are some applications that are very sensitive to the delay or the latency so for these types of applications I would recommend SAP HANA. However, if these are not concerns, there may be other database technologies that would be more cost-effective than HANA. I would rate this solution eight out of ten. View full review »
Test Manager (global) at a non-tech company with 10,001+ employees
We're moving away from HANA and currently implementing a new solution which is not yet productive. Only the first part of it has become productive and I can't really say whether it's better or worse. During testing, we can see it's faster than HANA and provides the same data which is promising. I would restrain myself from providing any recommendations because that might give a false impression. I would not recommend SAP HANA because it has some issues with the speed and scalability of the size. It's also extremely expensive. It's probably the most expensive solution of all and you could expect more from it. On the other hand, we don't have much experience with other solutions yet, so it will be very difficult to provide a real recommendation. I would rate it a seven out of ten. View full review »
SAP Consultant at a construction company with 501-1,000 employees
We do not use the HANA features, for example, embedded scripts. This is something that we may use in the future. My advice to anybody looking to implement a relational database is to use Oracle, rather than HANA. HANA consultants are very rare and therefore costly. My testing has also shown that Oracle in memory is much faster than HANA. This is a good solution, but the vendor inaccurately promises that the database is ten-thousand times faster than Oracle. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. View full review »
Consultant at a mining and metals company with 5,001-10,000 employees
I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. Right now, they say the solution is S4 HANA, but, not everything on there is S4 HANA, so it is kind of confusing that they say that they're moving us to S4 HANA, but we are not really on it. Because of that, we're not 100% happy. Once everything is properly moved over, it might be better. View full review »
Section Head at a energy/utilities company
The biggest lesson learned was that we started late. We all should have started earlier. Out of ten, I would rate this solution as eleven. View full review »

SAP Technical Consultant at a tech services company with 1-10 employees
On a scale from one to ten, I rate this solution an eight. In the future I would like to see the response time of the application being much faster than it currently is. The response time on a task should be faster so that we don't have to wait for 10 seconds each time. View full review »
