We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The WhatApp feature is the most valuable."
"The initial setup is okay. It's not too complex. Deployment took about one day."
"Seurity features - unauthorized individuals are unable to access certain applications."
"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."
"I am limited to sending a photo to five people. I want to be able to send a photo to many people, not just five."
"There needs to be more directions in terms of how to use the solution."
"Difficult to assess how pricing is managed."
"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."
