We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
I cannot comment on pricing, as this is not within my purview.
I do not have very good knowledge of the pricing itself. It's not an aspect of the solution I directly deal with. However, it's my understanding that the cost is quite high.
SAP is expensive, but if you're using the product, then the expensive product becomes inexpensive. Considering its performance and features, I find it quite reasonable.
SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot.
The cost may differ from region to region, but here in the Middle East, you pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees. SAP HCM is on-prem. SAP has another solution which is called SuccessFactors. It is on the cloud and by subscription only. So SAP has two solutions, the one on cloud is SuccessFactors and HCM on-prem. SAP is pushing for clients to go to SuccessFactors right now. The cloud solution may save some people money.
SAP costs a lot of money. In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue. I don't know how they come up with this pricing, but it is ridiculous. For example, if you want to have self-service for employees and managers then you need to pay for additional licenses.
