IBM CICS

The strengths of CICS are certainly the scalability. The multilevel architecture of the CICS regions, security, and performance, manages to manage large volumes of transactions with efficient performances.

SAP NetWeaver is well suited for contract file storage and management. SAP NetWeaver is less appropriate for entering in time and attendance.

I did not give SAP NetWeaver a 10, only because getting access to it initially can be tricky and sometimes it's very slow to load up.

Alternatives Considered

IBM CICS

There is no comparison, in practice, the possibility of using the latest programming languages but, above all, the databases can be different and more modern than DL1.

The servers rarely go down. Most of the time are on a programed maintenance schedule. We have our system in 2 countries and it's very fast and 3 years ago just one failed and it was in our principal office. I think that we selected SAP because the numbers of employees and the knowledge that they have of the system. We were about to change but SAP was the best option. Is very stable and complete for our needs.

  • Great ROI. We need to invest in new developments, making it more functional for our business.
  • We have requests that couldn't be duplicated. Maybe we need to pay to fix that.
  • We have a lot of transactions and don't have anyone that can guide us to the ones that we need to improve our business.
