Anonymous UserTechnical Architect at a construction company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's very easy to use. That's one of the advantages for the business, that you don't need to struggle to configure your website and your app service. Microsoft made sure to make it stable and very easy to configure."
"The program is stable and we've had no technical issues so far."
"The product is scalable."
"Overall, all of the features are very good."
"Azure data factory is a good tool."
"It's a platform as a service, so we don't have to manage the infrastructure to hold the websites."
"Debugging using Application Insights is a valuable feature."
"Zoho Creator can be integrated with other platforms easily."
"I just like the simplicity of it."
"Sometimes we face problems, but those are technical problems in Microsoft, bugs or something doesn't work as expected, but that's normal."
"I would like to see faster adoption and templates that we can use."
"The solution is quite expensive. If you need more features, you need to pay for them."
"I am new to the intervention and I find it difficult to find my way around the user interface. I have my own learning tool. However, it could be simpler for new users."
"Lacking somewhat in template data flows."
"The solution needs better integration capabilities on the network side."
"Initially, there were some rare instances when the server went down because it was deployed on Linux."
"They should allow for more UI customization."
"When you're developing database-type applications, there is no way to see the actual database tables. They call them forms, and I don't like that. Zoho should also provide better user guides."
"Azure doesn't cost as much as other services."
"Less than USD $100 per month."
"We have no complaints about the pricing."
"We would prefer it if the price went down drastically."
"It is at the bottom end of the price range."
