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

Pros
"The process is now simplified because there won't be maintenance. Usually we can take a snapshot of the number I need. We can automate the backup snapshots and we can restore it very quickly. We get many benefits from the application.""As the solution is on the cloud, we don't have to worry about the maintenance of software.""The tools are very user-friendly.""It's pretty useful when we need to migrate something big from a different type of database that AWS Data Migration Services supports.""I am very impressed by the scalability of AWS Database Migration Service."

"I have worked with DB2's great features in the last five years. The IDAA feature transformed the vision of warehousing, business analytics, and big data at my bank. Besides the mainframe, I saw that this solution was evolutionary. It gives real-time information."

Cons
"It would be helpful if the bandwidth could be independent of the network or if we could have a dedicated bandwidth for this product.""I think that Amazon needs to improve the migration scenarios after analytics""Database Migration Service could be more integrated. I think that it makes sense to add integration to these functions. For example, AWS Glue has a feature called Orchestrator to create data flows, and that's more straightforward.""Migrating from here and pushing the data from on-premise to AWS cloud is a big challenge and a few more services from AWS would be helpful. For example, we are currently using ILDB internet tools which move data from on-premise to the AWS cloud. A few more services would be really helpful for me to move the master data."
