Cons
"If Microsoft IIS could work well with AppOptics or things like PHP, Python, and other custom languages that run on the webserver, it would be ideal. I think there are cases where people need to use Apache instead of IIS when IIS doesn't work well with other web languages.""Scalability issues and security concerns need attention from Microsoft.""The documentation isn't very good and the options are very complex.""We've never had any issues with the solution, but it's still nice to have overall improvements on it. It could be easier and faster to use, for example.""The documentation is not very detailed. They need to improve it and add to it. They should ensure there are lots of visuals to help users better understand the solution.""The level of technical support the solution offers could be improved.""Having no support for other than a Microsoft environment and programming languages limits the usage of IIS in many cases.""In the next release, I would like to see better integration between the cloud environment and the on-premises environment."

More IIS Cons »

"Our customers expect that a page will open within one second, and I doubt this will happen. Also, opening documentation takes time. Fixing this will help the customer and help to meet their expectations.""The user interface could be improved by making it more user-friendly."

"The price of the cloud system is a bit high."

More IIS Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The cost of this solution is high.""Because India is so competitive in the IT world, people will start to move away from SAP's pricing because they have a market monopoly. Soon, they will start losing the monopoly part to open source and other things. I don't think their monopoly will run for more than three to four years because people are getting away from these monopolies."
