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."
"This product is very good because it is accessible in remote locations, and anyone can deploy from any place."
"The price of IBM Cloud is most valuable for us. The service is personable and gives us a good rapport. I can't say it's the best, but it was enough for our needs."
"The availability is second to none. Customer support is very good."
"One of the features that I really like about IBM Cloud is the flexibility where you can order your own hardware."
"This is a predictable and dependable service."
"There is no installation for this product because it is a cloud product."
"It is easy to deploy what you need for the initial setup"
"For non-complex applications, the IBM Cloud works fine and the price is much lower than the competitors."
"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."
"I would like to see a more user-friendly deployment process in the next release of this solution."
"Maybe performance enhancers and reports could be better improved. If they do so, it would be better. Of all the drawbacks I saw, this would be the biggest enhancement."
"The deployment can be a bit of a pain. There are a lot of packages and a lot of options and it can require complex configuration to get it right."
"There is not a lot of support for this solution, which is something that needs to be improved."
"They could improve on customizing reporting capabilities."
"It could be more secure."
"The initial setup and the pricing are areas that need improvement."
"They do not have a very good virtual network implemented, and the VPC is the most important feature that needs to be improved."
"I would like to have more free application with it. Some of the applications, I am paying more for them. I think that they must be free."
"We are using the trial version of this solution, so we have not paid anything."
"The price of IBM Cloud is very cheap compared to competitors AWS and Azure."
"The licensing fees are straightforward and predictable."
"Pricing is not as fair as Amazon or Azure."
"In order to be competitive, you have to commit to a contract for at least one year, but you pay a fixed monthly fee."
