We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

The main feature that I like the most is the variety of solutions that it provides. It provides some analysis, business information and more. It provides a wide variety of services.There is less work for the DBAs. Everything is handled in AWS itself.The experience with Amazon AWS is error-free. That was also, of course, something that I really appreciate. That means it's really well-tested and, as published or as declared.There are a lot of features that I really like including ease of deployment, ease of build and release, and also that it is heavily focused on a PaaS or SaaS model.The most valuable feature is that it is simple.The most valuable features are load balancers, databases, and S3 buckets.The solution offers a low footprint. We don't have to come up with a data center ourselves. We basically don't have to own any hardware. We just rent a slice of their platform and we have everything we need.As a service vendor, we have helped clients to achieve faster "go to market" on their products, and have provided highly flexible cost-effective system management solutions.

One area that could be improved is in data management. They could improve on the data side. For example, I see others with better cloud services and larger data computing capabilities.We don't know whether to increase server capacity or alert notifications. We don't know which hard disc to purchase or what the next recommended CPU is. There should be an indicator. We would like to have more guidance.I'm just bugged by the charges that I'm not really able to manage.One of the problems that I have seen is that some of the products are not as mature as others.They can launch the Oracle service in Azure, and we expect that this should be possible in Amazon AWS as well.There are some limitations for certain applications that happen regionally and it is an issue for us.They should really consolidate and make things simpler rather than offer you hundreds of random options. The way everything is arranged really forces users to figure out everything on their own and then, on top of that, to calculate the total costs. There's an infinite number of combinations even just with cost calculations. It's just too much.This solution would be improved with the inclusion of hybrid Kubernetes management.

The marketing automation needs improvement.They need an easy way of getting details and then adding to it and then being able to do it in a more simplified wayThe solution offers upgrades at a slower pace. The solution needs to keep up with competitors.I would like to have integration with Google.The cost of data storage is an issue once the company grows.
