Cons
The security sites need to be simplified and the technical support needs improvement.Updates to the SQL server with better features are needed to compete with Oracle Database.The pricing for this solution could be improved.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.
