Overall Satisfaction with SAP HANA Cloud

SAP HANA just entered its 10th year since its initial release. Undeniably this solution changed how databases are used by businesses for good. With SAP HANA Cloud offering, SAP is opened up more possibilities in the cloud. Due to the distributed nature of our business and recent acquisitions, some departments are using PeopleSoft and Oracle ERP systems. However, a large portion of our business is using SAP HANA Cloud directly or indirectly.
  • Enables high-speed, anytime access to data.
  • Helps reduce data duplication with virtualization and SAP HANA smart data access.
  • Easy to scale up and down, fully manageable as a service.
  • This is a fairly rich platform. Some customization needs may feel restrictive.
  • Licensing costs, consultation costs are very high. Find the right use cases to justify high costs.
  • Positive - SaaS based offering with managed upgrades and patches. Less IT effort on customer's part.
  • Positive - Performance is storing, retrieving and reporting data.
  • Positive - Extensibility is supported in several ways as SAP product landscape is largely centered around SAP HANA.
