Cons
Some things are very difficult to do, so the interface and usage could be more intuitive for those.The availability of the solution needs improvement.I think that this is a good product but I think that the cloud environment could be improved. I think that the future is in the utilization of the product in a product as a service way which is something that is lacking at this moment.It should be able to serve more concurrent requests like Oracle. Oracle has more powerful stability, availability, and real-time serving.They should make the solution more lightweight and not bundle everything into a single product.In the next release of this solution, I would like to see support for the Arabic language.The footprint could be reduced so that we can use a smaller virtual machine to run the application. We could also use more scripts. I would like this solution to be more script oriented, rather than GUI oriented.
