If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering SAP Business One on AWS, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
When this solution is installed, there are three servers. One is Active Directory, the second is the remote desktop, and the third is the SAP Database Server. In version 9.3, it is not purely cloud-based, which is why you need the remote desktop. In the upcoming version, 10.0, there will be a web-based client, which means that the entire solution will be purely cloud-based. This will result in better client experience. My advice for anybody who is implementing SAP Business One on AWS is to be prepared. You have to understand the product really well before beginning the implementation. There are several certifications and accreditations available from SAP that are available in the training, which is a good place to start. I also suggest getting the best consultants and technical team to assist with implementation. The biggest lesson that I have learned from working with this solution is that you cannot learn enough by just reading about it. You need to have real-life, hands-on experience with implementing it and using it. There are a lot of things to learn and the biggest benefits come from experiencing it yourself. The documentation is okay but it is not a substitute for experience. Overall, this is a really good product and I would rate it a ten out of ten.
I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because it's not software for a structured company or something very big. That is my impression.
On a scale from one to ten, I rate this solution a seven. Additional features I would like to see in the next version is an ERP. This is an SAP Business One solution, but the HR part of SAP Business One is very limited. If they can add more features to the HR module inside the SAP Business One, it would be great.
We are using the private cloud deployment model. I would recommend the solution. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
