More Cloud Foundry Cons »

"I would like for it to have integration to GitHub.""Better connectivity to on-premise systems would help us to support older systems that are migrating to the cloud.""I would like to see more and better support for data transformations.""Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information.""We need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this.""They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients""In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing.""The solution requires more flexibility overall."

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 »

"Licensing costs for this solution are based on the number of users and the bandwidth.""SAP's pricing is usually high compared to the competition. But this is also justified because they hold their products and services to quite high standards.""The pricing can be negotiated."
