We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Reliable with ease of provisional services.I like the ExpressRoute because that makes it easy to configure connectivity to Azure-hosted services.The most valuable features are the interface and customizability.It comes with a lot of ready-made studies that we can connect with other existing Microsoft applications, for example, Office, Outlook, Chatline, and OneDrive. Everything is behind the scenes running with Azure. It's easy to build the connectors.The time to market is fast compared back to the traditional on-premise hosting. That is one of the better things I can say because there is no need to worry. The Pack services will enable it to start immediately.The data factory feature.We are going to use Microsoft Azure to move some on-premise servers into the cloud so that our data can be held there.The most valuable feature is the single sign-on with multifactor authentication.

What I like best about Oracle Cloud is that it is an all-in-one system for everything.The most valuable feature is the monitoring.Frankly speaking, I've been very impressed with the stability the solution offers. Everything is working very well at the moment, and we haven't had any issues or faced any bugs or glitches.This is a highly available and scalable solution that can host both modern and legacy on-premises applications.The autonomous database functions are an excellent feature.The solution offers many features and it is a complete replica of our data center.

More expensive than other solutions without justification.Azure could be made more user-friendly.Dashboards and reporting could be improved.They are a bit closed on the customization side. If they open the customization then it will be very good.There were also a lot of constraints with the serverless parts.Auto ML could be improved technically.Microsoft Azure can be pretty advanced and difficult to understand. I would like it to be simplified. The licensing especially needs to be simplified.The subscription licensing is very complex and we would like to have it simplified.

More Microsoft Azure Cons »

The integration tools that they offer are quite complex to use.This service is very specific to Oracle and we cannot have other types of workloads on Oracle Cloud.The solution should integrate better with other tools and different vendors.Simplifying the cloud management console would be really valuable for small and large customers alike.Portability of the VMware environment into the Oracle Cloud should be made more simple.With Oracle you have to create your own roles and it is more complex.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Reducing the price would be of benefit to our customers.The licensing fees are more than $1,000,000 USD annually.Monthly billing convenience reduced cost overheads up to 70 percent.It's a very expensive machine and I would like for them to improve the price. There are smaller sized competitors who offer cheaper prices.

Improvements can be made with respect to flexibility in the licensing model.The pricing is a little bit expensive compared to other products.The cost may be a bit high for many potential users.Costing depends on if you have an existing license for the application and for the operating system.
