We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The data structure and the types of data that are supported are very good."
"Google is always introducing new features and tends to have a new release every month."
"Implementations with other products are easy."
"The interface is very good."
"General user familiarity with Office 365 products make adopting this solution easy to adopt in production."
"Integration with the entire Azure platform."
"The initial setup is fairly easy."
"The solution can scale to fit any requirement."
"The pricing is quite high."
"The solution needs to offer better System Information and Event Management (SEIM). I'd like to discover how we could implement something like that within Google's cloud."
"Sometimes it takes very long to refresh the information."
"The pricing could be improved. They need to make the costs more transparent so users know what they will be charged and why ahead of time."
"The initial setup is complex. Unless you have done it a few times it, it is going to be hard."
"Lacks integration with other platforms."
"Microsoft Azure File Storage is not that scalable. Once you reach the boundaries, you need to migrate to another solution."
"The solution should support all the legacy storage systems."
"Right now, for the number of servers and the storage that I have, I would say I'm charged between $125 and $150 per month."
