Cons
"I would like to see better integration with Active Directory, because we have had problems, and we still do.""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.""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."

"Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly.""When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow.""Support is an area where it could get better.""Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be.""Some of our small to medium-sized customers would like to see containerization and flexibility from the deployment standpoint.""The geospatial functionality could be designed better.""We are looking for a cheaper deployment for the solution. Although we did a lot of benchmarks, like Redshift. We tried Redshift, it didn't work. It didn't work out for us as well.""They could improve on customer service."

You can pay as you go.""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."
