What is most valuable?

The ability to write SQL queries was very helpful as we did not need to bother our DBAs in writing stored procedures for simple tasks.

How has it helped my organization?

This tool was very easy learn, yet powerful enough to manage many sites on a single instance. We save enormous amounts of time in development using this tool.

What needs improvement?

I have since moved into a management role and have not kept abreast of changes with this tool.

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

It is a very effective solution and worth the price.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use a different solution. We did use .NET for some applications, but I preferred CF.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Not applicable.
