We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Their tech support is amazing; they are very good, both on and off-site."
"A person with a good IT background and HTML will not have any trouble with Confluent."
"The simplicity of this tool is nice. It has a good graphical user interface. You can also do a lot of generic stuff in the tool. If there is good connectivity to a cloud database, such as Snowflake, and you can have a lot of Snowflake functionality in the tool."
"It could have more themes. They should also have more reporting-oriented plugins as well. It would be great to have free custom reports that can be dispatched directly from Jira."
"In Confluent, there could be a few more VPN options."
"It can have multi-environment support. We should be able to deploy it in different environments. Its integration with SAP connection is not so nice, which should be improved. It can also support an on-prem database."
"Its price depends on what you expect. You pay on a monthly basis, but there is a possibility to have special contracts depending on the installation."
