It has helped our Service nanagement analyse information across various key performance indices quickly.

What needs improvement?

People using SAP BW have to undergo some training to be able to use the product. Complexity can be reduced and could be made a bit more user-friendly. Wizards could be… more »

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

We already have SAP Dealer business management and whenever a new user comes on the system, we have to pay an additional licensing cost. But for the same user ID on the… more »

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

Previously, we were using IBM tools for reporting. But these were not analytical tools. It was a programming language which we used it to develop reports. It did not have… more »

What is most valuable?

This is a very robust and efficient product. It's very powerful, in particular when it comes to data management in the SAP system. Time changing dimensions is one of the most interesting features that a business would use.

What needs improvement?

The solution could be improved by simplifying the modeling and the design. We're faced with too many options and too many object types. It could also be more user friendly as a programming language. The product could include more integration with the work bench and integration with Python would be… more »

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

The main difference I've seen between products is the robustness and principle validation and the permission to production, which is very much under our control. It can add complexity and make things a little cumbersome like with SAP but it's also a guarantee of readability and strength. You have to… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice regarding SAP would be to build on top of the business content first and to push a maximum of availability there before looking to make adjustments for business needs. There is a lot of content and standard queries, many of which are unknown by the business before deployment. People think… more »

What is most valuable?

The security and audit procedures are the most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

I think more integration with other applications would be perfect.

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

I think the product is a little bit expensive and there are additional costs above the standard licensing base which we pay extra for.

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

Prior to implementing SAP, I used some local ERPs but finally, I found this to be the most powerful platform. So I switched from local ERPs to the SAP.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to follow the best practices without making amendments or changing more than 20% in the SAP environment. Following procedures and best practices adds value to the company because the ERP comes to the company to change the… more »

What is most valuable?

Data cleansed and harmonization. It provides us with proof of data, we can centralize all of the information, check it, and then provide the information to our users.

How has it helped my organization?

We're using it to have a consolidated and centralized data access point on which we build the data models and queries that are then distributed and consumed on the SAP BO solution (Webi reports and… more »

What needs improvement?

Technical support can improve by providing support in different languages. Sometimes, both customers and support are not English native-speaking people and the issue/resolution can be misunderstood.

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

Previously we did not use another solution, we have always worked with SAP.

What other advice do I have?

I was successful in connecting MS-PowerBI to the Business Warehouse. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.
