NetWeaver

The SAP Enterprise Portal has been a well suited SAP extension for many years, it has been used for grouping and showing the netweaver abap and java programs over the web in a secure way and controlled by the stronger security layer created between netweaver roles, and portal roles, it is yet used by many organizations included ours, it can be used on intranet or internet with no problem. The only thing that would be less appropriate is in a green field project, because there is the cloud alternative which offers high integration with new technologies, the architecture is very similar, but higher on components and integration.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

TIBCO ActiveSpaces is suitable when the organization is already using Tibco product for integration/big data/analytic/messaging layers. The cache of data is the sole purpose of TIBCO ActiveSpaces and it works only in client & server mode. It supports or works well only for small to average sizes of data. If the above points are fulfilled, then the license cost of the product is not a major concern.

Pros

NetWeaver

  • It is enhanced with the security of a SAP system so its very good and strong.
  • An excellent application for group and launch many kind of netweaver like Webdynpro, GUI transactions, custom repots.
  • It can be deployed with the SAPUI and SAP Fiori desing.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • Like all other IMDG solutions, Tibco ActiveSpaces provides a scalable and distributed cache solution, which is supposed to have high throughput and high availability.
  • As it is under the Tibco umbrella, it is seamlessly integrated with other Tibco products.
  • It breaks the traditional "local cache" boundary and limitation, instead unifies many "local physical memory" to create one huge "In-Memory Data Grid", and serves the data provider/consumer application logically as one "Memory Cloud."
  • A lot of non-frequently updated data can be cached in this IMDG, to allow fast access, which saves the I/O latency caused by many traditional file system-backed storage solutions.

Cons

NetWeaver

  • It has a short life because nowdays seems its going to be everything on the Cloud BTP.
  • A bit slow on the deployment of the central point portal by iviews.
  • It is by now not compatible with Fiori 3.0 and its features.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • ActiveSpaces 3.2 is not compatible with the latest version of TIBCO Business Event 5.x. And ActiveSpaces 2.x is not compatible with ActiveSpaces 3.x hence there is a big difference in the BusinessEvents supported version of AS and the latest.
  • ActiveSpaces takes more disc space and TIBCO does not offer data compression logic out of the box. Developers need to do extra coding to use java snippets to compress and decompress the payload. Although the data compression gives must better performance and speed to the system.
  • The compression and decompression API are not offered by TIBCO out of the box, which is a shame. These are so easy and simple to implement, still TIBCOdoes not provide them as an option out of the box.

Alternatives Considered

NetWeaver

SAP Enterprise Portal is a compress and easy to access to many sap netweaver applications, because many of them can't be accessed by web method so they can be integrated on the portal and be used, with an authorization profile to get access to them by the portal, its has like a mixed authorization protocol, the portal authorization to get to the right iviews that you need depending on your role on the organization, and a sub-level of roles and authorizations depending on the netweaver system you are using [with] the app.

Return on Investment

NetWeaver

  • It is quick to implement, its not hard to understand and apply it business logic for grouping, showing and managing the iviews and authorization.
  • The basis team that was administrating the netweaver platform its the same administering portal so its not necesary aditional consultants.
  • Negative is that it seems like everything is going to the Portal Cloud on BTP.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • The cost of Tibco ActiveSpaces is quite high, while the added value it brought is not as we expected.
