Sqream Technologies
Panoply is well suited for companies with large amounts of data that do not want all users of the company to see or view. It is appropriate for companies that have to store data for several years in case clients need the data. It is not made to constantly be downloading or looking at the documents.

SAP Max Attention and general support for SAP BW/4HANA is broadly available. Truth to be told, MaxAttention has a premium cost but brings great engineers. So this being an enterprise capability and extremely critical, we did not consider cost as the main factor since support works well. Just keep that in mind when making your selection.

Alternatives Considered
Sqream Technologies
Panoply has much more storage and better organization tools for searching. There are better folders and tools for keeping documents secure and stored for a long period of time. It is better to offload data in mass than singular or Zip drive documents like you would do in Google Drive.
