"Excellent data base"

What do you like best?

Its a very complete software, you need to know what to do there because it has a lot of functions, once you know the software it turns very simple and helpful for your company because you have all the information there.

What do you dislike?

In the beginning if gets a bit hard to know what to do, you need to read and practice a lot to familiarize with the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will recommend you to read a lot of SAP, you can take a course or may be some videos would help you to learn about SAP, then with your manager you will learn the things that he/she wants but at the beginning you should learn by yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Im helping my manager creating purchase orders and some financial stuff, we have studied a lot of project management because we need those concepts in our area.

"Works fine but yet to improve a lot"

What do you like best?

It's very well integrated with SAP backend ERP/BI,other systems. Lot can be done easily on top of netweaver.

What do you dislike?

The User interface is very obsolete, SAP should have worked on making the UI much more friendly and especially make it mobile friendly. They missed the boat big time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've provided SAP netweaver portal for our external customers for all the b2b operations.

Benefit is that though it's well connected to SAP backend systems the external user are not quite hitting the backend systems directly and hence the load and performance works well on the core systems.

What Master Data Management (MDM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Organized, comprehensive, smooth workflow"

What do you like best?

SAP maintains and processes large bits of data while still being user friendly. Once you have some familiarity with the front-end it is very simply to view and manipulate large masses of data. Changing data on an particular item is simple. There are a number of fields for entering data for an item.

What do you dislike?

The software offers many many options which are overly complex for our needs. It is relatively ugly, with dull colors, type writer font, and has a generally early 90's appearance. If you want to paste a list into a field, only about 8 fields show up, so if you copy say 20 items from an excel spreadsheet, only the first 8 will paste. Sometimes the error wording is ambiguous. It would be nice if you could look up a list of maintenance plans or work orders for a particular functional location - there is no good way to see a list of all of the maintenance plans or work orders for your area of responsibility. There is no "work order due date" There are about 8 date options for maintenance plans, but we operation by "due date" so this makes things difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for large businesses and large amounts of data but small business managing lesser data and not requiring a global data collection could probably benefit from smaller solution packages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use NetWeaver for managing equipment and preventative maintenance.

"Very Poor experience, not happy with switch"

What do you like best?

The only positive I can really think of is the ability to capture experimental work done prior to finalizing specifications, but the system is so time consuming to use that we don't make much use of this feature.

What do you dislike?

- Very, very slow

- No undo feature

- cannot see access privileges of end user accounts

- not able to use as a real development tool - areas to capture notes and information are very hidden so are not typically used, no way to make notes on formulas

- difficult and time consuming to upload documents and attach to specifications (these tasks must be done separately)

- all of the character limits on in-program messages prevent communication within the system / usage of the workflow inboxes, and everything must be communicated in e-mail

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to use this as R&D notebooks to capture history on the development process for products (not going very well), and then also to set up final product specifications.

"Bad bad bad. We have to use it for a simple job and it fails miserably."

What do you like best?

Honestly nothing. I have never seen such a crude product. It could be the specific implementation at my current working place but this is really bad. Having said that of course the implementation that we have is so traditional that it is really self-explanatory to use the provided UI.

What do you dislike?

There are several UI issues when using multiple browsers. Something might work in IE and not in Chrome etc. Also the UI produced is very very outdated and looks like it came from the early 00s.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please make sure you try before you buy. Try to see an actual implementation, a real use case, and try to use it from a user perspective before you decide to go that way. Try to do some simple things and try to do them using multiple browsers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

HR Leave management, compensations.

"The one stop place for the usual SAP stuff"

What do you like best?

The application is comparatively light-weight. There are other ways to do all the SAP related stuff (from configurations to ABAP codes) but this application is tried and tested, and it has been there for years. It is a bit boring, but it gets the job done efficiently. I cannot imagine using SAP functionalities using a web browser. If the internet connection is fast and the required VPNs are configured properly, then NetWeaver works effortlessly.

What do you dislike?

The interface is old-school. The user experience is not at all nice, if you compare it with a recent IDE, Moreover, there are problems with the connectivity at times - it gets disconnected. There are a couple of times when the application stops responding but that is majorly because of data overload.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other (poor) alternatives to SAP NetWeaver but nothing comes close to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SAP NetWeaver is the base application. So we can practically work on anything. I'm working on an application which involves pulling the Human Resource data from NetWeaver and showing it in the browser with some added functionalities.

There are plenty of benefits - once you have installed NetWeaver, you have access to all the data from various modules (Finance, HR, production, plant maintenance, sales etc.) based on authorizations and licensing
