The setup and configuration process could be simplified.The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved.The Microsoft documentation is too complicated.The product could provide more ways to import and export data.The speed and performance need to be improved.On the UI side, they could make it a little more intuitive in terms of how to add the radius components. Somebody who has been working with tools like Informatica or DataStage gets very used to how the UI looks and feels.The solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI.The solution should offer better integration with Azure machine learning. We should be able to embed the cognitive services from Microsoft, for example as a web API. It should allow us to embed Azure machine learning in a more user-friendly way.
