"sap sql my right hand tool"

What do you like best?

It is a highly sophisticated database system capable of storing large amounts of information, which I can use in different ways according to the requirements of the organization; in our case, it is necessary to maintain the inventories, invoices and sales control of several companies, SAP has been our solution. The interrelationships with the software of different operating systems were carried out without any problem and this gives me the peace of mind that the data and those of my clients are protected at the time the transfer was made. the different reports that are needed have the certainty that they can be crossed to give a technical report with all the presicion that is needed to the directive. The tool can be taken to a higher level if the client considers it with its mobile applications, which allows me to be connected and informed of what happens in the organization without being in the office.

Their security systems that possen give me the peace of mind that we do not need to use additional systems.

What do you dislike?

The possible difficulties that may arise in the installation of this type of database system is that at the beginning of the implementation, there may be a need for additional applications that may go up the site of the installation.

In the same way, the organization may not be clear about the costs of the updates of the tool and this will have an impact on its cost and may compromise its installation. As hardware updates on the equipment to be used by users can raise costs and this is what was odd at the time by the contractor.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation for SAP is to reduce some costs in the updates so that small companies or businesses can obtain this type of systems and enjoy their effectiveness and enter a more up-to-date stage for their operations.

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

For the company the fact of entering the SAP era was a great challenge and we are seeing its results, being able to present reports, statistical tables and other types of information that are necessary for a better decision making.

"sap sql anywhere"

What do you like best?

It is a highly sofisticad data base system capable of storing large quantities of information, which can be used in different ways according to the requirements of the organization or clients, when performing interlaces with software from different operating systems.

The tool can be taken to a higher level if it is required with your mobile applications.

Its security systems of incriptacion provides a reliability that we do not need to use additional systems.

What do you dislike?

The possible difficulties that may arise in the installation of this type of database system is that at the beginning of the implementation, certain requirements can be presented to perform data transfer interfaces that could increase the cost of the product.

In the same way, the organization can undervalue the tool and not update the platform periodically either because it is not considered necessary or because of the update costs that were not taken into account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation for SAP is to reduce some costs so that small businesses or businesses can obtain this type of systems and check their effectiveness and enter another more up-to-date stage for their tasks that should be done to their managers or customers

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

In the organization, databases were maintained in different operating systems and when trying to take information from them in order to make projections, studies or statistics, it was a great challenge. With SAP this has become much more efficient and comfortable and now there is a unification of this information and therefore becomes more reliable.

"SAP es un ERP muy completo que hace que la comunicacion entre todas las areas sea mas efectiva"

What do you like best?

La facilidad con la que cada modulo esta compuesto y su interfaz es amigable con el usuario, lo cual hace que entrar a SAP sea una buena experiencia ademas es facil poder desarrollar informes ya que los nombres de cada tabla aparecen en el sistema y de esa forma se puede elaborar un informe completo sin necesidad de ir a revisar base por base para comprobar la informacion tambien me gusta que se integra con muchas areas dentro de la organizacion y agiliza la informacion en tiempo real ya que mcuhas veces las otras personas se tardan en enviar los reportes facilemente lo puedo revisar en tiempo real desde una consulta elaborada a la medda

What do you dislike?

algunas tablas se encuentran ocultas por lo que hacer reportes es algo complicado o a veces nulo tambien que los datos no se pueden amarrar entre modulos lo que es tedioso estar elaborando reportes y no poder contar con la informacion como debe ser,

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Los recomiendo es un excelente software y facil de utilizar para la consolidacion de datos, toma de decisiones y tambien facil de administrar bastantes bases a la vez

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

El tema de reporteria instantanea cuando son bastantes bases y con muchos datos es facil poder integrar todo, ademas los reportes sirven para la toma de decisiones con datos mas certeros y exactos y a la mano de esa manera los directores toman las mejores decisiones para la organizacion

"My honest review for SAP SQL ANYWHERE"

What do you like best?

Its security systems which is so dependable, that we do not need to run add-on systems.

I also like it's quality performance and self-management that optimize your maintenance.

Platform based on standards of data bases that accelerate the development of applications.

Support for a wide range of devices and platforms.

It allows to integrate the management of critical business applications data.

Harmonize data secure and automatic way through sync technologies.

What do you dislike?

I think the company is not so specific about the prices of implementing the software, such as the arrangement of personnel for its implementation.

and I also believe that some difficulties may go up to perform data transfer interfaces that could lead to increasing of the product costing.

since it is difficult or sometimes hard to manage if it is not known.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think the thing that we should consider is the updates in the hardware of the company for an well regulated operation that can shoot up the costs this can probably represent a delay in its over-all installation time.

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

it's a labor-saving and reliable and now there is an integration of this information.

it allows me to rapidly create and deploy software.

The possible difficulties that may arise in the installation of this type of database system is that at the beginning of the implementation, certain difficulties may arise to perform data transfer interfaces that could increase the cost of the product.

Likewise, the organization may not be clear about the costs of implementing the tool, such as the preparation of personnel for its implementation, since it is not very easy to manage if it is not known, another thing that we should consider is the updates in the hardware of the organization for an efficient operation that can raise the costs this could represent a delay in its total installation time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation for SAP is to reduce some costs so that small businesses or businesses can obtain this type of systems and check their effectiveness and enter another more up-to-date stage for their tasks that should be done to their managers or customers

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

With SAP, this has become much more efficient and comfortable and now there is a unification of this information we can get statistics tables that buy us information is a wonder therefore it is more reliable.

"Has a few details for this type of tool but does the job"

What do you like best?

Relational database to companies for mobile and remote applications.

Highly scalable synchronization between the platform SAP HANA in-memory and other data sources.

Designed for occasionally connected environments (OCC).

Features built-in performance and self-management that optimize your maintenance.

Platform based on standards of data bases that accelerate the development of applications.

Support for a wide range of devices and platforms.

It allows to integrate the management of critical business applications data.

Harmonize data secure and automatic way through sync technologies.

What do you dislike?

Speed up installation times. A manual installation of SQL server can take up a good chunk of time. You can be forced to go through an installation wizard screen by screen and it can take a lot of time waiting for each screen to load.

Allow for easier integration with GUI's. SQL has the capability to use a visual query builder where you can drag and drop fields, tables, etc to build a query but it is not as user friendly as you would imagine.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Search for the sql anywhere databes and client sync licensig , and the go up , is cheaper and can define better how your going to grow up in the IT Forest

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

SQL Anywhere is a comprehensive suite for data management and synchronization, designed to operate with little maintenance, reducing IT costs and requirements, and allows you to quickly build and deploy applications deployed by database, for mobile, remote environments and centralized corporate systems (desktop, client / server, web, remote, SaaS and IoT) with a scalable, secure, reliable and highly available architecture, so that all business users can access the data anytime, anywhere.

"Junk. Don't bother."

What do you like best?

I don't even know if I can answer this. I seriously can't think of anything positive to say about this software.

What do you dislike?

Everything. The database manager (which in the MS SQL world would be the management studio express clone) is clunky, and it can't even restart the database successfully. I always have to kill the database service in task manager. I bought the newest version in 2016, it was very expensive, and it has never really run right. Did I mention the automated backup service seems to stop on its own? Here's another tidbit: when you run an update query in the Query Anallyzer (the thing you use to run queries against it), it will lock the table completely and prevent changes to it unless you disconnect from it! But it wont tell you that.. I had a problem and needed to contact support once and was stuck waiting for tier 2 to call me back, only to be told that I need tier 3 to call me back. My entire company was down for about 3 hours thanks to the bureaucracy that is known as SAP.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Dont bother. Use Microsoft SQL Server. It's eons ahead of this.

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

I seriously did not like this product and would not recommend it solve anyone's problems.

"The SAP SQL Anywhere Scalability. "

What do you like best?

what I like most in SAP SQL Anywhere is the bidirectional replication technology because it accepts data to be synchronized immediately if there's a connection. What a wonderful thing?, sometimes we call this function as a Mobilink associated mostly with handheld devices. On the same not files on the database are independent according to the OS, allowing them to be exchanged from different platforms without no hustle.

Thank you

What do you dislike?

I cut down the cost, it doesn't require IT staffs to operate as it is self-healing and zero-administration capabilities

So if it does this I don't have any objects.

Thank you.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend everyone to use SAP SQL Anywhere because it will simplify your data structure and complexity hence it will reduce your expenditure on maintenance staff.

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

Data Scalability problems if you have SAP SQL Anywhere It allows data to run outside data centers.

"Doing Well but Quite Expensive "

What do you like best?

I envy the security measures that the vendor has put into place for data safety.

This application has a friendly user design, more so to those people who only understand it.

Despite it's costs, it's capabilities are significant and supportive.

Lastly, I like the commitment with the vendor.

What do you dislike?

Cost is the only fight with this software.

The price or the subscription fee exceeds the capabilities of the common user.

If the vendor look at this issue, there is a guarantee that the developer will have more customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would advise any person there out wishing to have a Database management too to consider this application.

It is good.

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

We had the application in our company for data management, processing, and distribution.

It has all the features one needs, but raising the amount required is hard.

"Light native database for SAP Software "

What do you like best?

I have been using this database mainly for installing and managing of sap business objects, the installation is very simple and the management is also easy way to take the administration. is fully supported by the sap support team, and it has many sap notes and guides to help you manage and administrate it.

What do you dislike?

I have noticed that it is not good to use in very large systems, because its not so strong and not so flexible to manage with sql strings. it has some limitations due to his target of application.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Totally recommended for implementing light and also some test sap systems, it fits to your need and is very easy to install, and administration can become very easy, in windows systems it usually shows as an service so you can stop it and start it, also you can back it up easy with its software, and restore process is also very fast.

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

It has been perfect for our test systems and practice with our trainee consultant team, very light and easy to install database but it doesn't mean that is not secure, it is good and fiable for small and middle companys and its totally supported by sap team becuase it is a native database.

"Good database, crummy tools"

What do you like best?

I like that SQL Anywhere is an enterprise database system and there is a lot of support and documentation available on the Internet.

I do come from a SQL Server background but I've found SQL Anywhere pretty easy to get used to, with only minimal help needed online.

What do you dislike?

The tools are poor!

Seriously, in the Interactive SQL editor you cannot highlight a portion of text and only execute that. If you have other queries in the same editor window, highlighted or not, it will try to run them.

It shows numbers with commas in them by default - but not everything is money, SAP - what about primary key ID fields? They look weird with commas.

Interactive SQL and Sybase Central will both remember previous hostnames but not credentials. You can't effortlessly save logins for re-opening.

Ultimately, I can't really recommend the tools at all ... find a better third-party solution ...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Find a good third-party SQL tool.

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

We didn't implement SQL Anywhere per se, it comes as the database used by a product we use, so I am administering it as a consequence of that.

However, the business problem in general was for a line-of-business app and we selected the one we did partially because it used a proper enterprise database engine.

Deadlock logging is not turned on by default. An administrator needs to enable this either through Sybase Central or Interactive SQL.
