Azure Stack Review

Powerful OCR functionality on a stable platform

What is our primary use case?

I am using the Azure Stack for Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Basically, I use the OCR from Microsoft, which is the reason for using Azure.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the OCR, which I use for reading PDFs.

What needs improvement?

The price of the OCR could be more competitive with Google.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the Azure stack for about four months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have had no issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

My rating for scalability would be an eight out of ten. I just have not used it long enough to rate it higher than that.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not yet needed to contact technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

I did not need help with deployment and we have an in-house team for maintenance.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of using Azure Stack for OCR is more expensive than using OCR by Google.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have tested many different OCRs, including one from Google Cloud, and this is one of the best that I have ever seen.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to start small. As you gain experience and confidence with the platform, you can expand to larger tasks.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
