Pros
"IBM is the only vendor to offer integration with blockchain for smart contract development.""My favorite component of IBM's solution is Node-RED, which greatly shortens the amount of time required to develop, test, and deploy new applications."

More Cloud Foundry Pros »

"The WhatApp feature is the most valuable.""The initial setup is okay. It's not too complex. Deployment took about one day.""Seurity features - unauthorized individuals are unable to access certain applications."

More Google App Engine Pros »

Cons
"After the initial excitement period with Node-RED is over, you crave the need of additional integrations to third-party services."

More Cloud Foundry Cons »

"I am limited to sending a photo to five people. I want to be able to send a photo to many people, not just five.""There needs to be more directions in terms of how to use the solution.""Difficult to assess how pricing is managed."

More Google App Engine Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"IBM has a free tier and payment option depending on the products selected.""You are allocated a minimum amount of resources in the free tier. This seems fair and highly scalable, as you pay per usage as per cloud pricing schemes.""The pricing models should be reworked to the needs of a wider range of companies. Some customers will not be able to afford it until quite a few years into production, even after good PoC results and a successful launch."
