Likelihood to Recommend

Progress OpenEdge

I have had limited exposure to other development environments, but I have found Openedge to be well suited for the purposes that we are using it for. We have a windows client-server application that has been in use for over 20 years and has held it's age well. We also have a web based product using openedge appserver to access our backend code. The appserver functions well and we have been happy with it

SAP HANA Cloud

One of the advantages of SAP HANA Cloud is that it can easily be used to extend your current on-premise HANA system. We haven't tested it yet in a large scale project for instance as the database for an S/4 HANA implementation. This requires further investigation at this time.

Pros

Progress OpenEdge

  • Openedge databases are practically bulletproof, even when shot down abnormally. The offer complete transaction scoping, before imagining, and also after imaging for roll foward capability.
  • Openedge has a very powerful and easy to learn 4GL programming language that can be used in a traditional or object oriented manner.
  • Openedge also has powerful web services components, fully integrating both SOAP and RESTful web services.
  • Openedge is completely scaleable from 1 user to a fully distributed global enterprise solution.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • It's the way to go for the foreseeable future if SAP HANA is your platform of choice
  • We like the features currently available, but are anxiously awaiting for more on-prem features to make it over to the offering
  • Multi-Cloud deployment options is a huge benefit

Cons

Progress OpenEdge

  • Lack of multi-threading capability has been a complaint among other developers here.
Gerald Meachem | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA Cloud

  • Remote source connections through SDA to other databases like SQL Server and Oracle are no longer possible. The only way to go would be through SDI, which isn't as optimized and might require additional license costs.
  • If you currently use features like dynamic tiering or R server integration, you need to really look if this is the offering for you at this point in time.
  • The flexibility of downsizing, which is a big advantage of working in the cloud, is at this moment not available (yet).

Usability has been solid sofar, as well as the ease of setting up the SAP HANA Cloud instance. If you are a current user of HANA on-prem, you should feel straight at home.

As we haven't used the support for SAP HANA Cloud yet, we can't really comment on this. The documentation however has helped us a lot.

Alternatives Considered

Progress OpenEdge

Openedge is a superior competitor when compared to Oracle. It offers everything you need - scalability, replication, encryption, transaction scoping, and tuneable performance. It is a true enterprise level solution, that has been around since 1984. You could pay more for a name, or pay less for better performance. It is fully supported, and as technology changes, Progress changes to support it

SAP HANA Cloud

We have evaluated other offerings like SAP HEC and HANA as a service in the SAP Cloud Platform and we see that SAP HANA Cloud is the main focus of SAP's vision for the future. This is the main argument why we're leaning towards using this offering. Especially the quarterly releases of updates and new features is a positive criterium for us.

Return on Investment

Progress OpenEdge

  • The speed of development and ease of learning has had a positive impact on ROI
  • The cost of use has had a negative one. In this era of free tools everywhere, paying for a product is a challenge to accept.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • As this is a primary evaluation of the SAP HANA Cloud, I can't make any comments on the ROI of using this offering
