"Business made easy"

What do you like best?

SAP ERP is an all in one solution for all departments in an organization. HR, Accounts, Finance and Sales - all these departments use SAP for their daily running of the business. SAP can make a business run smooth, efficient and effective. Invoices can be processed, Sales can be tracked, employee work can be measured and financial statements can easily made

What do you dislike?

The interface of SAP ERP is extremely boring to use. Simple colors are used for font and there are no colors. Even a professional may get bored from using this software after a while. This software is also extremely expensive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SAP ERP has been extremely helpful in my business. All my accounting problems have been solved by this. Chances of Fraud have been reduced as all my work is being done on cloud. All my purchase orders and invoices can now be made via SAP ERP making my business look more professional. As there are more approvers and checkers involved in this verification process, chances of mistakes are also mitigated.

"S/4HANA - definitely worth the journey!"

What do you like best?

It's feature rich! We were on ECC - very custom system. We were able to go to S/4HANA and leverage the industry templates for a great percentage of our system. This allowed us to limit the number of RICEFW's that we created and will make our system MUCH easier to support going forward.

What do you dislike?

I'm a bit disappointed in the FI functionality which is supposed to be the most mature module in S/4. We've gone through several closes and always have OSS notes to apply for Material Ledger. I realize we are on an early version (1610-fp1) and so we expected to find bugs but as I said FI is supposed to be the most mature module we had expected better.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are doing a greenfield rather than a migration, leave enough time for the data conversion.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits are the rich functionality. We've realized benefits from the CDS views, Fiori and the flexibility of the configuration which eliminated much of the customization we did in the old version of ECC.

What Mixed Mode ERP solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Pre-configured ERP product and very quick to implement"

What do you like best?

The speed of implementing S/4HANA projects. We were able to do a greenfield implementation of S/4HANA on premise system in close to 7 months. Also the Fiori capabilities are a real highlight for S/4HANA and they give a lasting experience to end users and also the mobile ready applications were easy to configure and readily available for users to use on their mobile devices like phones/tablets/desktops instantly.

What do you dislike?

Many public cloud solutions from SAP to consider and evaluate for business needs. Each have their own licensing constraints. Licensing is a tad confusing sometimes from SAP. Lots of integration options to consider and needs new skillset of developers to achieve an integrated ERP experience with all the cloud products from SAP.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good product to consider as the time to get it up and running is really quick.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Re-imagined user experience with instant mobile capabilities.

Quick implementation cycles.

"This isn't anywhere near like R/2 to R/3 transition"

What do you like best?

Forces to somehow move away from VM and use the actual hardware. I like it, even though not everyone does.

What do you dislike?

It seems that SAP miscalculated the UI, again, as I do not consider Fiori particularly well architected

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think, we need some time to determine if this software takes ground. One thing suspicious about it is that it uses non-widely adopted technologies (e.g. HANA, Fiori) and does not take advantage of the open successful developments (e.g. Hadoop, various Apache projects).

SAP simply may not be able to sustain this development as it requires a pile of resources beyond current SAP capacity (people and money primarily) that aren't fast in the making or cheap, especially that all this requires huge research effort

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is yet at the stage of try-out as it isn't clear if there's a benefit. For now, it seems SAP imposing this product based on the grounds other than business benefit

"Features for the future!"

What do you like best?

Response time is amazing. The new analytics features are quite impressive.

What do you dislike?

Tools aren't quite there. A lot of the infrastructure to support this is not as mature as other products.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Plan your landscape very carefully and train your people.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The platform provides a new dimension to the business users. The replication and scale-out features allow for nearly unlimited scopes of analysis.

"Hands down best ERP software available"

What do you like best?

Everything. It does everything well. I have no complaints. After using several other ERP systems, this one has been the most suitable for my needs so far.

What do you dislike?

The quality does come at a price. Other vendors were more budget friendly, however this was well worth the initial cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't even think about other ERP software. This is what you need. Easy of use. User interface. Couldn't be made better. Pricey, but well worth the money. Going to another product just because it's cheaper won't save you time or money.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloud integration and migration was seemless.

Utilization of big data has never been better.

User experience for clients has been made very easy

"Super S/4HANA"

What do you like best?

S/4 HANA, is not only a platform for development, it is also a place where we can bring integrated designs with various other features of latesr SAP platforms.

FIORI is one another platform which provides world class design techniques which can be used along with S/4 HANA. They have designed the platform in such a way so that S/4 HANA can be configured easily without any hassle

What do you dislike?

It takes time to load even though the internet speed is very high. This happens for the first time.

Configuration guide is not easily available. If there is any link or document for learning activities, would be further more easier during configuring HANA.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes.. i would recommend others to use this.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Custom designs by keeping success factors as base.

"HANA is Great"

What do you like best?

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would strongly consider taking the SAP HANA classes to get up to speed and learn as much as possible about HANA

"My experience with S/4HANA"

What do you like best?

Implementing SAP S/4HANA 1605 enabled us to make our business processes better while increasing the system performance at the same time. It now provides us with faster insights and foresights.

What do you dislike?

The BAM module within SAP S/4HANA 1605 version is not matured and requires quite a bit of co-ordination between IT and SAP

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benefits include faster month-end, year -end processes, higher performance throughput, Instant financial results and Better reporting capabilities

"S/4 HANA Review"

What do you like best?

In SAP S4 HANA, you can have up to a maximum of 10 currencies, 8 of which are freely definable. You can set the freely definable currencies to real-time and not real-time.

What do you dislike?

Only standard currencies are inly available for material, asset, and controlling currencies. The freely-definable currencies will only appear in ACDOCA table.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Price differences (variances) can now be splitted per GL account using the S4 functionality. This means that you can breakdown the transactions per variance categories.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend SAP.
