From a customer experience point of view, the speed of development and the quality of the user interface of SAP Extension Suite [have] improved developer productivity and significantly boosted our agility. It completely redesigned our operating model and we now create [an] internal application that we need, at high speed and high quality, without spending so much on resources. Using SAP Extension Suite we can now scale the business operation with much more confidence and quickly tailor new integrations for any client situation.
  • Enables creation of great applications while adapting to evolving technologies[.]
  • Modernizes existing business systems by adding functionalities[.]
  • Comes with automatic app generation capability to enable us automatically write code, and move from backend to frontend.
  • Well, not that it has many cons to point out only that you may encounter unforeseen events during your use of the system which the documentation may or may not have a solution for. I think that is normal with any other system.
The adoption of SAP Extension Suite is growing significantly and it has become a strategic platform for our company. SAP Extension Suite will most likely meet the requirements of most companies to get beyond small workgroup apps and tackle more strategic requirements. The most important thing that SAP Extension delivers is a single UI for development effort for web and mobile deployment.

We are currently using SAP Extension Suite to create new products within a short period of time, as it's quick to code and very fast to test using SAP Extension Suite - something we couldn't have achieved with our legacy platform. With SAP Extension Suite we have the ability to deliver a completed product within months and not years and release updates in days, for every project we undertake, the end product is such a clean app.
  • Monitoring of all applications usage and performance in real-time[.]
  • Native support for agile development[.]
  • 1-click deploy and roll-back for integrated version control[.]
  • Supports entire app development life-cycle[.]
  • Complete mobile app deployment and monitoring[.]
  • Easier navigation of the system is something I would appreciate if it was improved[.]
  • Completely dependent on [the internet] connection which I think may not change now but in [the future] we may be able to access it offline[.]
Simplified the process of developing applications, [enabling] rapid innovation[,] and has already reduced staff overtime by around a dozen hours a day. Companies need a new approach to development such as the use of SAP Extension Suite if they want to quickly bring new capabilities to employees and customers and have a chance to develop software more quickly.

SAP Extension Suite is the platform that made it easier for us to deploy innovations and implement process improvements to put our clients on a digital transformational journey. It has helped meet the ambitious plans of different clients because of its ability to enable developers [to] build a wide range of applications and integrate all kinds of systems. By using SAP Extension Suite to make the existing processes of our clients more efficient, we have reduced the time we spend using our expertise to achieve the best outcomes for our clients.
  • Enabled gradual adoption of digital tools and new ways of working
  • Enhanced integration between applications and the ability to change what's already been built
  • The ability to deploy web and mobile apps which is essential as we transform companies digitally
  • Documentation and best practices on how to integrate SAP Extension Suite with different environments is not enough
  • Not every company is satisfied with the cost involved with implementing the system
I'm excited about what we have achieved for our clients through numerous initiatives we have already implemented using SAP Extension Suite. A digital transformation platform such as SAP Extension Suite is critical for companies to be able to innovate more easily and stay on top of their competitors. Those companies that have implemented this system have the ability to deliver working software on a regular basis.

The rapid development capabilities of SAP Extension Suite led to standardization, high levels of code reuse, [as well as] improved agility that resulted in speedy delivery of applications and helped overcome the problems of hand-to-change deployments. SAP Extension Suite is the platform that we use for a whole variety of mobile and web development projects. It's more flexible compared to hand-coding and users appreciate the modern look and feel of the solutions we develop using SAP Extension Suite.
  • Allows for instant elasticity and lets developers custom build solutions
  • The speed of delivery it offers enables a solution to be deployed in a short period of time
  • Allows the IT team to leverage their existing skill set and minimize use of resources
  • Enables the reuse of code
  • It's quite important to note that the configuration process involved with SAP Extension Suite is troublesome.
  • Whenever they make an upgrade it feels like a new system and there are things we have to relearn.
With this application, we can create different apps concurrently with the [possibility] of these apps going live within four weeks of starting development. We have achieved an estimated 60 percent savings on [the] total cost of developing. The work of our back-office is easier, more efficient, time and money [are] saved on back-office administration.

SAP Extension Suite has brought agile development to the business and as a new methodology we put in place we were able to cut a whole layer of consultants. [It has] enabled us to build our own custom applications, and [implement] changes extremely fast which gave the company the ability to innovate core processes to respond more quickly to market developments.
  • Brought more expertise and development capacity into our company
  • Agile application development as a new way of working for the company
  • Faster and more efficient app building
  • It ensured total integration and and amazing end-user experience
  • The inability to deploy to multiple environments simultaneously is the only limitation I find with this platform.
SAP Extension Suite provided our company with the tools that gave us the ability to meet the needs of our IT projects. We have realized real business gain, proven ROI, and reached our IT management goals. Tackling all our systems and web requirements is within SAP Extension Suite and we do it quickly too.

Due to the innovative and open technology that SAP Extension Suite provides, it made it easy for us to create, deploy, iterate, and manage the entire lifecycle of apps and processes. Empowered the IT team to rapidly acquire new skills so that they can efficiently deliver high-quality apps and services to customers, and now teams are able to provide a more consultative role in planning for future programs. SAP Extension Suite immensely reduced the cost of developing and managing apps.
  • Reduces the length and cost of system development and integration
  • Empowers developers to acquire a new skill to deliver applications and other services efficiently
  • Enabled the innovation team to transform the way services are accessed and delivered
  • Ensures scalability of apps used simultaneously by thousands of customers
  • There are many options in the development process and it takes time and experience to get to know the right controls and options
  • Some integrations can be hard but most of those that we have done worked well
  • Learning how to use it takes time
The partnership with SAP Extension Suite formed a key foundation to drive value for our customers by delivering better end-to-end, lower-cost service. Since adopting SAP Extension Suite we now offer services that are convenient for users to access. It laid the foundation and collectively transformed how we develop and deliver new applications.

When it comes to business application development, workflow automation, and process management, we have [been] using SAP Extension Suite and I must say it is very capable. With this software, it becomes easy to manage and connect people and data within our organization as well [as] manage tasks and processes. Most importantly, data access is made easy and this enhances efficiency
  • The software makes data accessibility easy
  • Integrations with other SAP products is easy
  • Automation features are amazing and the tool makes developing applications easy
  • SAP Extension Suite ensures data quality and efficiency
  • Longer learning curve
  • User interface needs improvement
For data quality, automation of processes, data access, and straightforward integrations for improved efficiencies, SAP Extension Suite is what your business needs. The software is suitable for many [businesses], more so those that need to share data across several departments. In addition, if you continually develop, release, and deliver business applications, you can never go wrong with SAP Extension Suite.

Web and mobile apps we develop with SAP Extension Suite (formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform) now touch almost every corner of the business, and the responsive user interface of our web applications works perfectly for use on mobile devices. Nowadays, enhanced continuous collaboration among the development team and a greater emphasis on UX design has greatly increased our ability to deliver solutions that are loved by our clients.
  • Made it easy for the operations team to push new versions from development to QA to production with speed
  • Supported our internal coding capabilities and streamlined application development and management
  • Simplified application staging and version control
  • Made it easy to reuse application components
  • It's an expansive platform and definitely we have found it to be pricey and some small businesses struggle with the cost
SAP Extension Suite (formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform) made it easy to reuse components across the development teams and also allowed moving applications from development to quality assurance testing and ultimately production quickly and simply. Built-in version control, access control, and application monitoring are real plusses. It was not only easy for our development team to learn and use but also flexible enough to integrate with our existing systems and applications.

SAP Extension Suite gave InnoCore the ability to focus on designing the right solutions versus performing tedious hand-coding or getting involved in complex integrations with back-end systems. The platform provides a development environment that allows us to not only move our application process online but also set us up to accomplish future goals. The company has been able to leverage the power of SAP Extension Suite and use it to deliver highly flexible platforms for customers while cutting development time and costs.
  • Accelerates and streamlines the development and deployment of applications
  • Automates core DevOps and enables the true visual design of applications
  • Gives us an understanding of what applications mean to end-users and how to customize them accordingly.
  • The HTML source generated seemed to be messy but was improved in later versions
  • Cumbersome deployment process
SAP Extension Suite provides the best Rapid Application Delivery platform that makes it easy to develop web and mobile apps at once, and deliver them across iOS, Web, and Android. Under tight time pressure and ambitious cost reduction goals, SAP Extension Suite proved to be an effective solution for accelerating and streamlining the development and deployment of applications. Every upgrade of the solution brings in new features and improves the existing ones.

Currently using SAP Extension Suite to achieve performance improvements that impact our test suite as a whole to yield improvements across many tests at once while also reducing infrastructure cost. We chose SAP Extension Suite primarily for its ability to parallelize tests across many workers and the robust API is also a plus and has enabled us to improve end-to-end build time which benefits the entire development team.
  • Increases build parallelism.
  • Saved over 50% of our previous end-to-end build time.
  • Automatically bisect test failures when they occur.
  • Detects test failures that would occur on future date.
  • It was a bit of a hassle to configure at first but once setup it's easy and fast.
  • At a certain time they removed key items used in pipelines to force upgrades.
  • The new UI though works well feels less intuitive than the previous one.
SAP Extension Suite is completely transparent at every stage in the build process as well as run times for end-to-end build times. It enables us to execute our business objectives more quickly, with more flexibility, and better cost structure than other similar platforms we evaluated.

We have been using this service for almost 2 years. We migrated from SAP Cloud Platform to the Extension Suite. We have deployed a couple of interesting applications (Java/Nodejs) on SAP Cloud Foundry, run on HANA Service provided by the Extension Suite, and grouped them by the SAP Cloud Portal, another service from the Extension Suite.
  • Integrates many SAP services on the same cloud platform.
  • Availability to integrate with the on premise systems, may be SAP or non SAP.
  • Works with an open source ecosystem, such as Cloud Foundry.
  • They should improve the dashboard for SAP HANA Service, to be more likely the SAP HANA Studio. It should be available to evaluate your SAP HANA database.
  • This year we have seen there are usually bugs from some features that after some weeks are solved, but you have to wait until they get fixed on an update.
  • Security and role features should be improved to be more granular.
It is especially well suited for a company that wants to be on top of the cloud world because SAP is focusing a lot on its cloud products and their integration. This doesn't mean on-premise software is not good. For example, with Extension Suite you have programming languages like Java and Nodej. This is an open-source using version, like Git, or procedures for deploying CI/CD, Jekins, which goes away from the traditional ABAP coding of R3 and S/4 HANA.

We currently use SAP Extension suite in several different departments across the organization. It provides real-time data across engineering, planning, and buying. It has increased our efficiency when it comes to lead time as data is entered as we go, once it's entered everyone has access to it. It accelerates the whole process, every department knows the steps they have to take once they see the order in.
  • The support of the SAP team is excellent.
  • It integrates several different features which are needed for our business.
  • The interface is very easy to understand and use.
  • Most features need to be developed. It would be nice if there were ready-to-go services to use.
  • There should be better training on what is possible with SAP Extension Suite.
  • Processing data sometimes can take a long time.
SAP Extension Suite would be more suited for middle to large companies where a lot of integration across departments is needed. This tool has a lot of potentials if used properly. It is also a great tool to use if the same company has different divisions across the world to access real-time data.

SAP Extension Suite is the go-to solution for any SAP customer transitioning to the cloud. It's basically a very SAP-centric Web IDE that brings quality-of-life or very specific features you would not get otherwise, unless you're integrating your core SAP product (ECC, CRM, S/4...) with a third-party solution. We primarily use it for Fiori development (SAP own web technology) since there is little added-value to go with a non-SAP product for that specific use.
  • Lots of quality-of-life improvements specific to the SAP landscape
  • Direct integration & simplified preview with SAP core products (ECC, S/4, etc.)
  • Agile process automation and delivery for DevOps teams
  • 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
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.

SAP Extension Suite is currently being used by IT department of the organization. It is immensely powerful in connecting cloud to cloud applications. The capacity to augment, develop and build business applications with an ease and flexibility driving greater business value makes SAP Extension Suite an extremely viable option to be pursued.
  • Supports end-to-end processes
  • Quicker role authorization, registration, and authentication
  • Easy adoption of mobile apps
  • Ease of custom code incorporation is not intuitive
  • RPA is a bit challenging to incorporate
  • Custom Fiori app development is tricky with public API
SAP Extension Suite (traditionally known as SCP) is particularly well suited for scenarios that would need custom fiori app development or situations requiring interfacing with cloud applications such as - SAP Conversational AI, interfacing conversational AI with the ERP system, implementing chatbot based applications to enable automation at the backend to derive value-driven results.
