Quotes From Members

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

"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 »

"This platform is popular with technical users because of the abilities for customization and fine-tuning performance.""This is a solution that's so easy to expand when you need it to. It's the best I've ever seen. It's much better than Azure.""It's robust, and it has a wide reach in terms of office applications including storage.""Simple to use on the web, and makes things easy for a software developer.""You can just connect and start using it through a browser within a few minutes.""The initial setup is very straightforward.""I like it because it's convenient. Google Cloud is also stable and scalable. The technical support is good as well.""I like that it is simple to use."

"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 »

"The ease-of-use could be improved for less technical users.""The management side for the database needs some work. Currently, you do everything from the APP. It would be nice to have an interface where you can go in and maintain data and deal with records and do something online.""There are issues with stability.""Could provide more services.""Monitoring and usage reporting could be improved.""If there were more documentation and training, it would be very helpful in explaining the underlying processes.""I would improve the integration with other devices such as smartphones. It is integrated in our company, but I think it could be improved.""It could have a reporting tool included."

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."

More Cloud Foundry Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Google cloud is less expensive than other comparable solutions.""The licensing for Google Cloud seems to be quite cheap and they're actually quite reasonable in comparison to Azure, which, as it turns out, is quite expensive. Even though Azure has a data center in South Africa it's still quite costly. There's no scaling, so if you go with the VM, you pay 2500 Rand. When you add another VM, it's another 2500 Rand even though you don't use the whole thing. With Google, you can go up as incrementally as you need to, even if it's just 30 Rand.""The best part of Google Cloud is that it is cheaper than the competitors.""The licensing cost is based on the capacity we use.""It's not really an expensive solution, but it would be better if there were more flexibility in the pricing model.""I am not familiar with the pricing, but I would guess that it is probably cheaper than Microsoft Suite""It has a monthly subscription. The customers pay based on the usage."
