We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"If there's data added to the solution, there's a good record of it so it's easy to track everything."
"What I like most about Google Firebase is that it's one of the easier options to host a website or app quickly."
"Google Firebase is one I like a lot because it gives us a little bit more power and accessibility when it comes to publishing apps a lot quicker and for the needs that we have."
"The solution is stable."
"The user interface is very good and easy to navigate."
"The Realtime Database feature is the most important for us since we are able to see changes in the database the moment they are happening."
"The solution is stable and we have never had a problem. We started with one terabyte of data when the solution was first implemented and today we have around almost 600 gigabytes of data, which means means the compression works properly. Before migrating from ECC, we had nine terabytes of data."
"What I like the most is that we can convert databases into a proper multi-dimensional model, and then we can project with the integration with Power BI."
"One of the features that I've found most useful is that It's very simple. They take care of the technical aspects of the data, installations, patches."
"The solution does provide quite a lot of support, upgrades, automated batch updates, etc."
"There's a minimum amount of downtime when using the solution. This platform is very effective."
"The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past."
"I would like to see faster data migration and some support for other languages in the next release."
"The solution needs to offer capabilities to work offline. Like Firestore, we should be able to do insertion, updating, and deletion offline."
"The solution could improve by providing an improved SDK tool and automatic indexing for databases."
"I would like to have a facility for testing possible scenarios by writing dummy data and then doing different queries."
"The cold start-up of the cloud function needs to speed up. For me personally, I'm not experienced in anything there, however, I've just read online it's a problem."
"The only thing that I won't do on Firebase is the hosting side of things for a progressive web app because it feels like you actually still need to download the app first before you can actually get into the functionality of the app."
"This product is not mature enough at this point in time."
"The stability needs to be improved to be able to handle large amounts of data."
"The customer has a lot of dependencies on SAP which means they don't have much flexibility to go and update the system when or if they need to. They will need to wait for the quarterly updates. It's possible to maybe raise a special request with SAP if it is absolutely necessary."
"Our data centers are in Europe and come under GDPR regulations, and this doesn't apply to the Middle East yet. It causes a lot of confusion."
"They should probably offer more cloud services. Most of the cloud infrastructure providers we have make everything pretty transparent, you know what you're getting, you have all these metrics and measurements and everything in the dashboard. Here you have to go through the contracting negotiations and all those things."
"The solution is scalable from an infrastructure point of view. However, it becomes more complex over time because technology is changing so fast."
"The monthly cost is based on writing data and queries to the database."
"The price of Google Firebase is very good."
"The pricing component is a bit confusing when it comes to what exactly you'll pay for, but I wouldn't say it's expensive."
"The moment you go into volumes, then you work on a pay-per-volume basis."
"If you choose the minimum, it will probably cost around $1,000 USD per month if you take a contract for a year or two."
"The licensing of the solution is on a yearly basis. The normal price of the solution is quite high, but I received a special discount by making a purchase near the end of the year."
