Deltek CostPoint vs SAP S/4HANA: which one is better and why?


Hello peers,

I work as the Director of IT at an Aerospace/Defense company.

Currently, I'm checking Deltek CostPoint 8 and SAP S/4HANA and I'm looking for their comparison.

Can anyone help?

Hi @Hovik Hacobian,

Can I ask how you reach these systems?

The ERP selection for an organization (or industry) needs methodology and experience. SAP is a Tier1 ERP but Deltek is not. So I think your roadmap is wrong from the starting point.

But in general, some important parameters in selecting a system are YOUR:

- Organization size (eg. 10,000 employees and users, or 10M$ USD Revenue Per Year),

- Organization process (eg. full purchasing process without HR Process),

- Organization industry (eg. project-oriented (E, EPC, ...), Manufacturer, Sales),

- Organization needs and priorities (eg. good UI/UX over best functionality),

- Organization maturity (eg. best practice process over "as-is" process).

Finally, I think, first, you must clarify your needs and answer the top questions. After that, select the best choices.

Both systems are great, but just for a best-fit organization.

Best Regards
