Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

It is great if you
want something less sophisticated than Kubernetes. There is less complexity in scalling and there is freedom in configuring how you want to scale. Downside is that you can scale one particular micro service, maybe its not the best fit for a micro service based application.

SAP BPM

It is well suited when we need to integrate business processes with SAP ERP and SAP CRM - the solution can be integrated with business rules/procedures defined in SAP ERP/CRM and NetWeaver can be used to monitor the rules and flag off exceptions. When there are multiple workflows running, it tends to slow down running of these processes. Also, it entirely depends on SAP portal for it to run efficiently.

Pros

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

  • Automation.
  • Increase/decrease capacity on demand based on rules.
  • Very flexible, but technical tool.
Carlos Becerra | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BPM

  • Virtual paper trail. Iterations of process and current documentation are all stored as "artifacts", leaving a great trail.
  • Configuration of users. BPM somewhat magically determines which users will be impacted and automates rules.
  • A pro (that is also a con) is the design interface. If you know what you are doing, it is incredibly powerful and malleable.

Cons

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

  • Sometimes decrease rules may not work.
  • New scaling policy creation is a bit confusing and do[es] no[t] have help.
  • Previous scaling policy screen no longer exists, so you need to understand what new interface actually does.

  • Live readings would be nice.
  • Easier to maneuver
  • Work with all systems with the press of one keystroke

Usability is good since we already know how AWS works. For those that are new it might be a little bit confusing at the beginning but they are improving it at a fast pace. Even though AWS keeps changing the user interface constantly, it is still powerful, understandable and easy to use. For technical people, they still offer the CLI.

The platform works as is. The help and tutorials on the help page can help you to setup the entire platform without problems, and also provides help on a huge variety of problems.Amazon also provides support plans. We have the basic support plan, but Amazon offers three support tiers, and we know that it works perfect.

We have our own tech support for systems, I would say they probably could use more training on it, I don't really think it's anything regarding the SAP system, but more the knowledge they have on the system itself. It seems to take longer for them to fix any issues we may come across.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

AWS UI's are better to use. They are cleaner.
Azure UI looks crowded. AWS instance is faster than Azure. Load balancer
emphases in AWS is useful.

SAP BPM

I found the initial setup of NetWeaver is much simpler than other products especially in an SAP environment where we have SAP ERP/HRM/CRM as it can be well integrated with other SAP products. The only drawback is the need/dependency on SAP Portal. It is better suited in an environment where SAP ERP is running.

Return on Investment

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

  • It has saved us time, since we don't need to manually monitor during busy seasons.
  • It is easy to manage than Kubernetes
Rudolph Pereira | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BPM

  • Helped us harness integrated benefit from having SAP ERP/CRM by leveraging NetWeaver to define business processes/rules and monitor exceptions
  • Did not have any negative experience except for the fact that at times when multiple rules run, it can be somewhat slow
