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 »

"This solution is providing a platform with OOTB features that are difficult to build from scratch.""We are able to operate client’s platform without downtime during security patch management each month and provide a good SLA (as scalability for applications is processed during heavy client website load, automatically).""The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications."

More OpenShift 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 »

"If we can have a GUI-based configuration with better flexibility then it will be great.""Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions."

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."
