SAP Extension Suite (formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform)

Because SAP offers unique features that are specifically designed for their core products, SAP Extension Suite is a must-have for any SAP-centric customer or service company. You can easily import and export your code directly from the SAP systems, previewing changes in real-time and benefit from predefined templates designed for the most common SAP use cases. But then again, the product still feels very new and would benefit from performance and UX improvements.

Sitecore Experience Platform

Sitecore can be a good solution for a company wanting a premium product and is really looking to leverage the platform for advanced digital marketing capabilities. If a company isn't mature enough to utilize all of what Sitecore has to offer, or is just basically looking for a CMS, there are other options that may be a better value.

Sitecore Experience Platform

  • Sitecore has a decent supply of out of the box components and capabilities that can be fairly easily styled to meet business needs without much customization needed. This often helps speed to market.
  • Sitecore has had the flexibility of offering on-premise hosting or cloud hosting to meet different needs of clients, though recently they have strongly pushed their cloud-based hosting. This is in alignment with the industry and very helpful for organizations that aren't looking to add another product to the portfolio of packages that their internal IT teams need to manage
  • Sitecore has a capable UI for editing content. Though some competition may do better in this regard, Sitecore's editing interface is fully capable.

Cons

SAP Extension Suite (formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform)

  • Still in an early stage where you miss some obvious features that any generic IDE would offer
  • You would think developers using the previous version of the product would already have their bearings, but SAP changed so much that they have to learn everything again
  • Performance varies a lot depending on your pricing plan, especially if you have a growing development team

Sitecore Experience Platform

  • While the UI is capable, some other products in this space have a much more intuitive editing interface. Sitecore could do better in providing an easy to use editing UI.
  • It would be nice to see a fully managed Sitecore instead of just cloud hosted
  • The price falls more to the premium side of things. Making the value proposition a bit harder to justify

Alternatives Considered

SAP Extension Suite (formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform)

SAP Anlaytics Cloud is an excellent tool that enables data visualization in the cloud. Budget planning, predictive analysis are some of the features of SAP Analytics Cloud. SAP Extention Suite brings with it a platform to enable such cloud based tools that could easily interface with S/4 or other cloud applications with agility and flexibility.

Sitecore Experience Platform

All of these platforms have their pros and cons. Selecting the best fit is a matter aligning corporate need vs features provided. Have a .NET shop with an advanced marketing team looking to push UX forward and willing to pay a premium, then Sitecore may be the right fit. Have an organization centered around Java and only looking for basic CMS capabilities or looking for a budget-friendly option, then there may be better options beyond Sitecore.

Return on Investment

SAP Extension Suite (formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform)

  • Faster development cycle due to native integration with SAP products
  • Negative short-term ROI due to the lack of training material and significant differences with the previous version of the same tool (SAP Web IDE)
  • Tighter integration with corporate programming guidelines since SAP Extension Suite offers great integration with DevOps pipeline solutions

Sitecore Experience Platform

  • For mature marketing organizations, the analytics that Sitecore allows you to capture have been valuable in pushing forward marketing objectives and giving insight into how to tailor content for the best UX
