Before purchasing the solution, it is important to have the buy-in from top management to drive the implementation. Additionally, the right people need to be put in place to implement the solution. Integration is another consideration since it can be a challenge. Planning is essential to the success of the integration of SAP HANA.

It is important to remember that this product is not a replacement for a data warehouse. We can use this as a Data mart/data lake. It does have additional features such as predictive analytics but again, it is not meant to replace the data warehouse. This is a product that I recommend for others. It is powerful, without a doubt. In time, I think that it will be mature enough to handle more situations. I would rate this solution a eight out of ten.

If a customer is looking for the latest innovations or products from SAP this solution is perfect for them. It also offers seamless integrations with other players. There are companies that you can use to layer on top of it. You can take the AWS platform and then put SAP on top of that. Or you can take Google cloud, or Azure, etc. It's a bit expensive compared to lead other platforms because the support is directly from SAP. However, it's quite good support. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

Security is also pretty good because if you look at most of the SAP systems you do have secure access to SAP with support. Even when you're not on the Cloud they still provide secure access to SAP. I would advise anyone considering this solution that they should get it. It is very technical, it is very good. One, it is very good and second, they don't need to have a data center to quickly get off the ground since it's everything under one solution. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate HANA Enterprise Cloud certainly an eight. To get it to a ten, they should probably offer more cloud services. Most of the cloud infrastructure providers we have make everything pretty transparent, you know what you're getting, you have all these metrics and measurements and everything in the dashboard. Here you have to go through the contracting negotiations and all those things. So mainly it is because of the specializing and connecting but overall customers need them for production then they simplify it.

We have not yet explored all features and would have to check with the admin team for the additional requirements to further explore what additional features we may need for business cases. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
