What do you like best?
Integration of Different Business Processes into the system.
Upsides of using SAP ByD is Increased productivity, Better use of time, Transparency in every Business Process and Quick collection of information whenever required particular to any Business Process.
What do you dislike?
One should always be alert and attentive when feeding information into the system because there are certain things which cannot be reversed so if any mistake happens the whole cycle is compromised. So employees need to take care on very minute level.
Well sometimes it gets tedious to do the same repetitive work again and again so some automation should be inculcated as it is not readily available in the standard offering.
Customisations are possible but still in basic process a little bit of automation is must and it can differ from business to business.
