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.

SAP Extension Suite is an App Development Platform that has been used in our company for a very long time due to its great qualities and how it was initially part of the SAP Cloud Platform. This software is currently used in different departments of our company, like the Human Resource and IT departments and it has been generating some very valuable and profitable results.
  • There are many pros of this tool. It has proven to be a really good choice for our organization from the day it was introduced. It is one of the best options available for developers when it comes to finding everything on a single platform.
  • This tool is great in terms of integrating with non-SAP platforms, which allows you to automatically run different reports of bigger sizes.
  • Most of the features present in this product are simplified for configuration purposes and that leads to so much time-saving.
  • There are certain limitations associated with this software as well.
  • I personally feel that this tool demands a lot of effort when it comes to training and usage, which makes the procedure a little more tedious.
  • I think that the pricing is a little on the higher side, which makes it more expensive compared to other players in the market.
This tool is one of the most excellent tools when it comes to automation. I would highly recommend this tool to my colleagues and friends if they are willing to integrate the workday and even other databases. However, this tool is not so appropriate for smaller companies, as it is a little hefty in the pricing department, so for smaller organizations, it can prove to be bulky in that regard.

It enables employees to perform tasks quicker and more efficiently and also reduces the learning curve.

  • Enables employees to perform tasks quicker and more efficiently
  • Creation of employee and supplier portals
  • Delivers business productivity, engagement, satisfaction
  • Provides employees with the information they need when they need it
  • Not competitive with other tools in terms of log mechanism and security management

SAP Extension Suite is used by the Internal IT team in our company. It helps us to connect to the Cloud network easily. Many of our company's applications are developed on the SAP Cloud extension tool. It is less costly and more easily stores huge data. It helps to integrate other tools easily, plus we have an end-to-end support process for this application.
  • Easy to work on mobile [device] with this simple interface and Cloud technology.
  • It helps with quick and safe user authentication and registration.
  • End to end support.
  • System security feature can still be improved.
  • Little difficult for new users to understand.
  • Can be more user friendly on public API for app developing.
SAP Extension Suite has improved Cloud software and faster troubleshooting. It is a great tool that enables data visualization. Also, its interface is flexible with other Cloud-based applications. It has the ability to address issues 24*7 without much manual intervention.

[SAP Extension Suite (formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform) is] being used across the organization.
Since we have multiple other SAP products being used in the company, the SAP extension suite provides more flexibility and [customizable] options for their own applications. Many used with the SAP S/4HANA, it helps in the analysis of the data with a reliable framework.
  • The UI development option for developers
  • Business content collaboration for non coders
  • On premise as well as cloud applications can be used
  • It is difficult to be integrated with third party applications as they are meant for SAP extensions.
  • Wider usability would make it worth the money spent
I would recommend SAP Extension Suite [(formerly part of SAP Cloud Platform)] exclusively for SAP applications already deployed in place. The user interface can be contacted through APIs and therefore helps us adding multiple channels depending on the user needs. SAP application programming model if used will be a great help and eases the work of for an endpoint development.

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.

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.

It provides excellent automation for the HR team, where they want to integrate the workday and other data bases. Gives a real time chat bot for the HR team and increases their efficiency. Not suitable for the smaller organization, as it is expensive and requires a lot of effort to train.

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.
