Cons
It's pay as you go, so you never know what your bill is going to be beforehand, and that's scary for customers. If you have someone who makes a mistake and the program's a loop that is running all night, you could receive a very expensive bill.This is a young product in transition to the cloud and it needs more work before it is both settled as a product and competitive in the market.It would be of interest to improve things like the web service integration and availability in terms of being easy to create internal web services in the database.The initial setup process needs improvement. When you're moving to the cloud it takes a bit of time. It would be great if they could implement something that would make it faster.I would like to see better integration with Active Directory, because we have had problems, and we still do.
