Cons
Updates to the SQL server with better features are needed to compete with Oracle Database.The pricing for this solution could be improved.The security sites need to be simplified and the technical support needs improvement.There are various things that you need to use PowerShell to do. That would be good. You could do them through the management portal, rather than through PowerShell. That's the biggest improvement I would like to see.The solution's licensing framework needs improvement.There are loads of holes in security and I'd like to see better integration with security products.The admin panels have too few samples.Flow and Form components can be improved individually, but it would be nice to see the product take the next step and operate as a unit rather than separate modules.

I would like to see Outlook options added to this solution.The mobile application needs improvement. There are a lot of features on the web and desktop versions that aren't implemented yet on mobile.In the next release, I would like to have the interface modernized and brought more up to date.I think they can improve the all those segments for channel bulking. Also, some functionalities which migrated from Skype for Business to Teams, is not supported by Teams. We had used them in Skype for Business.We occasionally have issues with synchronization between different dates. This aspect of stability needs improvement.The product is immature and lacks some of the features and functionality you would expect in a collaboration tool.It may be a little daunting to learn and is still a tool in development.I would say that Microsoft Team invitations from the calendar within the solution could be improved.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Compared to buying a license, it is much cheaper and a good buy.Now you can select different licenses, for example, if somebody doesn't need all of the features, it would cost $8 USD per month and if they didn't need the email application then it would cost $6 USD per month.Depending on which plan you purchase, there are a plethora of applications available to you.
