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.

I used other ERP applications as well prior to SAP or even after that. Its best comprehensive ERP application available in market which can integrated with multiple choice of application as the process/projects needs it. Felt Azure Data Lake Integration is best as it was really helps us to meet our objectives. In my cases it really must for any SCM based ORG.

SAP

  • In the beginning, it's kinda hard to learn.
  • The reports are full of data but in some transactions there are missing options.
  • Not too easy for a custom format.
  • We are using an old version and the exports formats are too old.

      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

      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.

      SAP is market leader and they have made Netweaver application server very easy to understand and maintain. And again we have flexibility to use different OS and database. So that makes them best in the industry and makes them leader. other thing is their Upgrade and Migration tools which makes SAP technical guys life so much easy.
