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.

Cons
Oracle
  • One of the areas where we found Glassfish adaptation difficult for our company was the lack of documentation and community forums covering important issues.
  • We ran into a roadblock with OAuth 2.0 implementation and did not get great support on that issue.

  • 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.

At the time we did a small proof of concept with both platforms and Oracle Glassfish had more intuitive administration and configuration functions

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.

Return on Investment
Oracle
  • Glassfish which initially spun off from an Open Source project has a community edition which is free to use and offers great ROI.
  • In comparison to cloud offerings like AWS and Google App Engine, Glassfish requires more cost upfront for installation and management.
