    Probably the best Enterprise Resource Planning Tool in the Market right now!

    What do you like best?

    SAP ERP is a powerful tool that is extremely rich in capabilities- especially across the core functions of finance, materials management, sales & distribution and production planning. It can accommodate a whole slew of business processes and the supporting documentation is extensive. In addition, they have the largest market share in the ERP space across a range of industries (including Consumer Goods, Electronics/High-Tech etc). This also lends well to may be reaching out to your colleagues in similar companies for clarification on tactical details (if needed)!

    What do you dislike?

    As with any implementation, training and change management is a key component of ensuring a successful roll out. Given that SAP ERP is not very user-friendly and intuitive; end-users have often complained that it cumbersome to use.

    My biggest peeve about SAP is the confusing licensing process; with additional layers of maintenance and support fee hikes that often lead you to question the efficacy of using SAP, especially when compared to other cloud-based subscription based offerings. But as of now, as long as SAP ERP has the market power, the current licensing structure is here to stay!

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Blueprinting is important!!!

    In my experience, I have observed that customers most often complain that SAP is not working for them...a closer look reveals that the product was not effectively configured in the first place and enough time was not spent in the blueprinting phase and doing the business requirements mapping.

    At the end of the day, if your processes are not optimally set-up; they will not be properly configured...and the system will not work the way you want it to. Always focus on process, process and process!

    Great system for managing business processes and data across an enterprise

    What do you like best?

    This system is very flexible and if configured properly can handle a vast majority of end-to-end business processes (order to cash, procure to pay, financials and controlling, etc). In the past, the user interface was a major concern but SAP has taken steps to address this (screen personas, web UI, etc). Additional SAP Components (CRM, SRM, BI, etc...) can be bolted on to handle additional processes and SAP has a few different middleware options for processes that need to be handled across multiple systems.

    What do you dislike?

    Because the system can be configured and enhanced to do such a wide variety of things, it is also easy to configure incorrectly and once something is in production, it can be difficult to go back and change. Also because of the complexity of the system, there are numerous consultants that claim to be SAP "Experts" in one or more functional areas but don't really have the skills needed to ensure that what's being implemented actually meets the needs of the business, which ultimately drives up costs when things have to be redesigned later.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Map your business processes out carefully prior to starting any implementation and make sure to hire people with prior experience, preferably in your specific industry, to oversee it. Using outside contractors to do the actual physical work is fine but don't let them run the show. SAP is an extremely powerful too, but only when it's configured properly.

    Great platform for data management

    What do you like best?

    Our company has over 100 different manufacturing sites and over 300 sales offices globally. SAP is a great platform for pulling the data together from all the operations. SAP easily allows you to access data on sales volume, part number usage, operational efficiencies, really any piece of data that you need to run your business on a global platform.

    What do you dislike?

    The initial implementation is difficult and if you acquire companies that had SAP previous versions the migration up to the current SAP version from those is not easy.

    Also admininstration is limited due to the impact it may have on global sites, so individual site customization is not recommended.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    This is really not the most manufacturing friendly ERP system on the market, but is a great tool for data management across multiple business units.

    For the implementation, you really need a strong internal team that understands all parts of you business in order to make the implementation as painless as possible.
