Overall Satisfaction with SAP Cloud Platform

Several implementation streams - integration, extensions and bespoke applications.

Is the go-to platform when creating solutions that build on our SAP solutions. Many small scale projects currently using SCP, but major scale up expected in next two years.
  • Integration using CPI is so much more agile than previous solutions using PI. The main difference is that CPI is already accessible to the internet and so partners can be on boarded in a few minutes rather than the weeks to set up new network traversal.
  • Very simple to compose a new set of services for a project. This approach works well for agile projects.
  • For larger organizations, we miss automations that work at the cockpit level. There is too much manual effort required to create an environment, which could lead to inconsistencies.
  • With CPEA consumption model we see a lack of detailed reporting and control as a risk. Past experience has show how easy it is to over consume services.
  • There is a real lack of global solutions - services etc are available around the globe, but single services - distributed and highly available - are required for our bigger projects.
  • No impact given Nestlé’s scale, but that will change as SCP starts to handle core services.
SCP business services are a good value add, but the control and reporting side of SCP is lacking.
Services that need to consume our traditional on-premises SAP data are the first choice scenario for using SCP.

Solutions that are not touching existing SAP data or services are generally served elsewhere.
