    The system is not always intuitive to a new user. However with some upfront training it is easy to catch on. A lot of the management is left in the hands of the users, in our company that would be finance. To us that is a great benefit, however, that may not work in all situations.

    The availability of the leading and non-leading ledgers meets our financial reporting requirements and helps us fulfill both the stock exchange requirements at the parent company level and country-specific requirements at the operating entity level. In addition, the Open Item Managed Account feature ensures that reporting teams optimize their efforts on subsystem-driven accounts to achieve accounting concurrency.

    Pros

    BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

    • Dynamic reporting and consolidation of information from disconnected sources
    • Adaptability to needs of shifting business initiatives
    Daniel Guzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP ERP

    • Organizational resource management and integration of different departments with each other as a software automation
    • We have Access to all insights and analytics data from anywhere
    • It doesn't matter how big your organization is, it supports everything from small companies to giant high-tech organizations, and they all have access to data at very high speeds.
    • If you use the web and cloud version, the initial costs will be greatly reduced and even a small start-up small company can enjoy the benefits of SAP ERP.

    Cons

    BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

    • SRC had a delay in information until the month's operations officially closed and the data was fed into the system. Other products that I have used allow you to see activity throughout the month. Knowing that it isn’t final, you can still get a sense of how revenues/expenses are stacking up for the month, etc. In addition, other operational metrics, like Average Daily Census, Admissions, etc. should be able to be tracked daily, rather than having to wait until the month is over.
    AJ Senff | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP ERP

    • SAP sometimes gets slow whenever most of the people in the company simultaneously use it
    • Hopefully they would extend background job processing to all tables in SAP since it sometimes goes time out whenever extracting large historical data (ex. 5 years expense data)

    The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

    I could train users to use the Business Warehouse within an hour or two. Also very easy to create reports and send web links to view the report. Exporting to Excel/Word/etc. was very simple and had good formatting.

    Well, I've had several scenarios where it was evident that they simply buy time. At the same time, their Product Support and Implementation teams are most likely not in sync. What's said by a member of implementation may not hold good when you refer the same thing with a member of the support team.

    This is more a function of the training I received from the systems experts in my organization, not training from Business Objects/SAP. The training was rushed, without an agenda, and didn’t meet my needs as a user.

    Alternatives Considered

    BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

    Business Objects SRC is more flexible than other products and that is especially important in a company where each division is completely different in how they operate, their KPIs, and their operating functions. It allows finance to decide what information is important at that time and does not take months of IT resources to meet management's immediate informational needs. Reporting and budgeting is easily updated when there is an addition or a deletion of a line of business. Finance is allowed to dice the information in any way to satisfy the current needs of the business.

    SAP is totally integrated as are many of its greatest competitors, but the level of detail in the integration between modules puts SAP heads and shoulders above all others. Granted, the SAP implementation can be much more difficult to perform, but in the long run, the amount of effort you put in will result in excellent usability. After using Oracle's E-Business Suite for over 20 years, we did a due diligence search that lasted over 18 months before making a decision to go with SAP. This was a result of our Oracle system being made "un-upgradeable" due to a custom module that Oracle Consulting actually built for us. We were stuck in an old version of their database that would not work upon patching to the next version.

    Return on Investment

    BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

    • Thus far the BI team has been playing catch-up since our SAP implementation, as a good many important customer facing reports were left out of the implementation as a requirement for go-live.
    • The scalability and SAP data conversion are the real value.
    Daniel Guzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SAP ERP

    • SAP has helped in transparency across different business unit and single financial view of the company that previously did not exist.
    • The cost of supporting the solution is slightly higher than the previous ERP and the consulting solutions cost more.
    • Overall SAP has brought in positive ROI and uniform business practices across the organization
