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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have used this software and the possibility of adapting to other databases is very good, which reduces this problem of data loss because they are different systems, it is very effective when it comes to making the necessary decisions. The information necessary to make this presentation to the board of directors who need the management of graphics, statistics and information to be able to develop product strategies in the market for customers and particularly the organization.

The organization must carry out a good budget plan for this type of program because of the update that must be given to the staff that will manage it and inconveniences arise that do not fall short and can continue.

The system they use for information encryption makes it very reliable and we don't need to get additional packages for the protection of information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The difficult thing that the program can present is that if they are not clear about what is necessary to work in the installation and preparation of the personnel that will manage it, the costs can be triggered and the company will not support it and the project does not conclude as expected.

Another aspect that SAP should consider is the possibility of reducing cost so that this can reach other small companies and enjoy this type of platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The most important recommendation is to be able to lower the cost of the package to take it to small businesses, which as the system grows, adapts to all those required requirements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

SAP SQL is a program where data is synchronized with which we can work in a very comfortable way in principle certain difficulties may arise but when familiarizing yourself with the system it is easy for you and we can observe it with the low cost in maintenance, we can in Mobile remotely or on desktop, web servers.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
