"Integration with other databases or third-party products would be useful."
"It would be better to update the solution by using a GUI that guides me, rather than through a CLI."

"Pricing is low and scalable to add features and volume."

"We have all the licenses, which we pay for annually. The price is a little high, but the product is good."
