Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution has very good Lambda functions within AWS.""We found the solution to be reliable.""It is easy to spin up resources.""The ease of use is the biggest benefit.""We've built several AI ML solutions and done lots of work on the GPUs available on Amazon servers. We did a lot of work around web spidering, natural language processing, and machine learning or deep learning workloads.""The price forecasting and billing dashboard by service, with billing budgets and alerts, have helped us shut down resources that were accruing costs that we no longer needed, saving us money.""The interface of the solution is good.""Easy to deploy through the channel model for serverless architecture and easy to integrate through the organization model."

"The most valuable feature is the data synchronization, or the push and pull of the data.""The pre-delivered content from the SAP cloud platform is definitely a strength.""The ability to expand it whenever required has been great — it's very simple.""SAP has provided very good support.""SAP is an excellent company with an excellent reputation, excellent products, and dedicated customer support.""The most valuable feature is integration.""Cloud Platform's stability is great.""Scalability is one of the benefits that we have in using the product."

Cons
"A person with no AWS experience might find it overwhelming at first.""The web console of AWS is not so user-friendly.""Their metadata management in AWS needs improvement.""The dashboard and interface need improvement.""Some services that are not used often have poor quality and need to be improved.""We have had some difficulty figuring out how to monitor how many EC2 instances have been networked into our entire enterprise. We usually try to create a diagram outside of AWS. The types of information we are trying to determine are, for example, what hardware devices are interconnected, and when was the interconnection made.""I'd like the solution to be more plug-and-play.""The solution could always be further improved on the commercial side of things. Amazon Web Services are not cheap. It would be ideal if it was less expensive for the customer."

More Amazon AWS Cons →

"The main problem is that there aren't any easy migrations from SAP PO to SAP CPI, so from process orchestration to cloud platform integration.""The solution requires more flexibility overall.""I'd like to see more local integration.""Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information.""We need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this.""They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients""My impression of the stability is that it is not good. Almost every month there is something new and that makes us nervous about delivery.""In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing."

  • "I find that Amazon AWS is expensive."
  • "The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS."
  • "I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing."

  • "The price could be lower."
  • "There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."
  • "AWS is not an expensive product."

  • "The cost when it comes to monitoring can be difficult."

    Overview

    Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.

    SAP HANA Cloud Platform powers applications that deliver real-time insights to drive more effective and timely decision making. The product promises to accelerate analytics, business processes, sentiment data processing, and predictive capabilities.
