We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I find the ease of deployment to be the most valuable aspect of this solution."
"The solution is very useful for stock management."
"It helps us in detecting all kinds of problems in the code, such as bad quality, unclear code, or any violation in the code or best practices."
"I can deploy it on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows — it's very easy."
"The scalability of the database is absolutely guaranteed by the new features."
"The stability of the solution is very good. I wouldn't have used it for the past seven years if I was not satisfied."
"The solution overall is very, very good. It's got good integration with other databases and adds new features often."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is the data aggregation function."
"I don't think the solution is very scalable, because the scalability of the performance when using more than one process is not very good."
"It would be interesting if they added functionality with redundancy, reputation, and variability."
"It would be good to have more automation and integration with the tools from other vendors."
"In the next release, it should support JSON, XML, and replication with third-party tools."
"The support is not that great. They're not really supporting directly anymore and relying on experts to figure out technical issues."
"Sometimes MySQL does upgrades on the server. When we are still using the old server and when they integrate the upgrade, they don't carry along some of the old syntaxes. The versions don't sync."
"The solution should offer memory management."
"Integrating business intelligence or NLP solutions would help us save time and would prevent us from having to take a deep dive. Data problems seem to multiply on the system when you interact with it. Automation would save a lot of man-hours."
"The technical support is in need of improvement."
"It is a public domain system as every customer can install it on their system without paying any license fee."
"It is okay."
