We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The initial setup was really easy and straightforward."
"The MPP (Massively Parallel Processing) architecture helps to make things a lot faster."
"The most valuable feature is the scalability."
"The main advantage of using this solution is its ability to scale and handle very large amounts of data, in the petabyte range."
"The features we've found most valuable for data warehouses is extracting data, SSIS packages, and the DBs."
"Azure elasticity allows us to scale as much as we want, and it is pay-as-you-go, so we can scale up as we need to."
"The most valuable feature is the incremental load because we do not need to refresh the entire data on a daily basis."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is the analytics and that it can connect with Power BI."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of running queries."
"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."
"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'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."
"With respect to what needs to be improved, concurrent connectivity has some limitations."
"I'm not entirely happy with the billing model. I'm not entirely happy with how the enterprise services are pretty expensive, but that's about it."
"The configuration for things like high-availability could be more user-friendly for non-technical users."
"I would like to see version control implemented into the data warehouse."
"I would like my team to be able to build pipelines that integrate with the Azure Data Factory."
"Stability-wise, we have had some issues with automation and the ability to handle large datasets."
"This solution starts at €1000.00 a month for just the basics and can go up to €300,000.00 per month for the fastest version."
"When we are not using this solution we can simply shut it down saving us costs, which is a nice advantage."
"The licensing fees for this solution are on a pay-per-use basis, and not very expensive."
"All of the prices are available online."
"Our license is very expensive"
"They are cost aggressive, and it integrates well with other Microsoft tools."
"There is a cost calculator available online that allows you to input your entire scenario, and it will get back to you with information on what the costs are going to be."
"Its price could be better. It was a school project, and I got it for free. If I try to pay through my company, it is a little bit more expensive as compared to Oracle."
