SAP BW/4HANA

Some scenarios where SAP BW/4HANA is well suited are retail industry, supply chain, finance, warehouse, stocking processes, BI, [and] some finance analytics reporting. Some scenarios where SAP BW/4HANA is less appropriate [is when] relational queries are needed [and] in some small business with infrastructure limitations. Another scenario that is less appropriate is for ABAP processes requirements.

SAP S/4HANA

I would recommend SAP S/4HANA to businesses, especially large-sized companies. This is because it offers a variety of modules such as SAP Finance, Product Life Cycle, Human Capital Management, Sales and Distribution, and much more. SAP S/4HANA is well suited and would go really well for companies that have a large database that demands fast and complex analytical capabilities in order to process big data.

SAP S/4HANA

  • The software plays a pivotal role in the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems of a business by executing the projects easily and efficiently.
  • It gives quality reports with effective results.
  • There are many advantages that are associated with SAP S/4HANA. One of the important pros that I have experienced in these years is that it has a faster closing process.

Cons

SAP BW/4HANA

  • Enterprise license pricing is very expensive and run-time license limits the usefulness of the tool.
  • Integration with SAP Analytics cloud for write-back to BW/4HANA. Live connection is only read from SAC.
  • Make run-time licenses more useful.
Robert Harper | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP S/4HANA

  • In early development stages so limited functionality in some areas.
  • API integration in some cases requires a combination of a number of API's to perform a task.
  • Focus is mainly on finance as is SAP's usual way and this limits operational capability in some areas.

SAP BW/4HANA requires specialized skillsets around data warehouse modeling and the access to data, however the modeling capabilities are intuitive and have now become accessible to both SAP and non-SAP data warehouse specialists. This new model allows for Interchangeable skillsets and access to a broader pool of experts throughout the industry, as well as easier access to data.

Ha, because I implement it, I have to go through rigorous testing and can get it fixed if not working as needed. So in my eyes, it is great. I am not sure how easy it is for new ERP users.

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.

Customer Service and Support from SAP was crucial during the decision-making process and the following migration. To be clear, migration was far from a friendly and stress-free process, but the Support and Training team sent from SAP was a key to the [successful] implementation. Without this support, I don't believe we would've been able to implement SAP S/4HANA.

[SAP S/4HANA] have better features than these Software's as it can support the entire process from account receivables to account payables, cash management, reporting and forecasting but other software can only help in maintaining the records. We can easily customize the product and can integrate with any other platform which makes this more productive and user friendly.
