It depends, I feel SAP is more robust


Workday and other cloud options are kicking butt on both SAP / Oracle . SAP is on its way to become next mainframe .


A1: yes it is heavy with loads of trash!

Following. Im about two years post undergrad doing SAP, and while I don’t really think about oracle vs SAP much, I do think about massive potential for disruption in the space. I’d love to hear what folks here see as the future of ERP, outside of “these systems will need to be supported and people will still use them”


Longevity I feel is pretty certain. Companies will continue to use SAP, and those skills will still be in demand. Like you said, the transferability is what I’m concerned about. I feel like for me personally, I could excel in plenty of other roles and carry over a lot of what I’ve learned, but do people hiring for those roles see it that way?


As Technology is changing and business scenarios are changing , we at the stage cannot really come to conclusion which Applications are better . Every ERP transformed to digital world need to connect to third party. Say Blockchain ..it connect to SAP and also Oracle ..but how we use business scenarios and applications is the client ask ..this is one illustration but there are so many ..so we can come to conclusion that SAP is better or Any other software..it needs tailored solutions to be the objective


Dude, you just answered this by saying "i don't know" but instead typed 2 paragraphs....pick a side or just keep scrolling


Oracle is more Cloud-y than SAP at the moment. Go with Oracle for now. SAP will catch up in the next 5 years.


This is actually an interesting question, but I've honestly never had anyone with SAP switch to oracle unless they were required as part of an acquisition. I've done several large projects where clients moved from oracle to SAP.

I did see very few that moved from SAP to Oracle 7 years ago but I agree with you many moved from Oracle to SAP because of the Oracle’s stupid licensing and poor strategy to on-premise. Oracle is only focused on cloud now. I think down the line you will see significant amount of clients moving from SAP to Oracle cloud!


I prefer Verizon for my carrier but my friend swears by AT&T.

Since you want to chill, Oracle would be better. The Left Coast is more chill than the Right Coast.

People who think cloud companies will kick sap butt have no idea the scale of sap. Their push into cloud will make them dominate the market. And if they are able to have any sort of success in getting developers to write apps on their tech stack it will have massive enterprise network effects.

That said, legacy sap is very different from cloud.

It’s not that oracle cloud is better than sap when it comes to the underlying technology stack. It actually doesn’t matter, simply because sap has the money to buy interesting growth companies and push their wide network into buying these cloud technologies.

I want both to be placeholders (“click to add title”)

How do you see the future of SAP consulting? I think it’s going to be a wild ride for the next five years or so with all S/4HANA upgrades, but what happens then? New greenfield implementations seem already quite rare.

Obviously there is going to be some smaller ”basic work” but I think the amount of work will decrease significantly after couple of years so are you concerned at all and planning to move to another filed or confident that there will be enough work in the future as well?
