Quotes From Members

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

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 »

"Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS.""It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things.""It is easy to deploy applications, and we don't need to bother about software updates on the server. We don't need to bother about machines, servers, and hardware. We only need to care about the system and functionality that we need or want to develop. They take care of everything else. It provides high availability. It is a pretty good solution that provides everything that we need. It has everything that we need to run our applications. We have many different applications, and we generate three million bills for a company in Brazil. We see more than a billion requests per day in another application. Everything works just fine, and it is very good."

More Heroku 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 »

"They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more.""Heroku doesn't support Docker images on the CI infrastructure.""Their support is good, but they can improve their response time."

More Heroku 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."
