SAP S/4HANA Cloud

  • Moving on to the pros of SAP S/4HANA, I have noticed many advantages like it is highly integrative.
  • Also, it has a high performance which runs on in-memory computing databases.
  • Moreover, it is one of the most stable Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems offering high-end user experiences to address complex and complicated business problems.

Cons

ABB Ability Solution Suite

  • May be for smaller PLCs this can't be implemented.
  • Cost may an area ABB can look in to.
  • Improvement in GUI
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

  • Light version of the solutions for SMB size companies.
  • Not so straight OOTB implementation and a lot of disparity seems with SAP leadership and the salespeople pitches.
  • Need to make the cloud more exclusive to enable a faster shift of organization from OnPremise/AnyPremise solution to cloud.

One of the best solutions in the market with a user-friendly system. This is very useful when the ABB system (Like we had 800xA) is there, new or existing; all the ABB systems can be integrated using this rather than going to a 3rd party vendor, which may have interface problems.

Ha, because I implement it, I have to go through rigorous testing and can get it fixed if not working as needed. So in my eyes, it is great. I am not sure how easy it is for new ERP users.

Good support in terms of quality and promptness. When we had problems with some of the commands not getting executed, their online support also provided a good solution to solve the problem. Even mission-critical task we were able to solve during this Pandemic time. The suggestion is to go for the online support 1st in the future, followed by a visit.

Customer Service and Support from SAP was crucial during the decision-making process and the following migration. To be clear, migration was far from a friendly and stress-free process, but the Support and Training team sent from SAP was a key to the [successful] implementation. Without this support, I don't believe we would've been able to implement SAP S/4HANA.

Implementation was as expected. We had minor issues with our Z* transactions, but nothing special. Some tables were extended and needed regeneration. Overall satisfactions is good.

Alternatives Considered

Better suited for the ABB System as Microsoft is a third party for ABB Control System.

[SAP S/4HANA] have better features than these Software's as it can support the entire process from account receivables to account payables, cash management, reporting and forecasting but other software can only help in maintaining the records. We can easily customize the product and can integrate with any other platform which makes this more productive and user friendly.
