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

Pros
"Much more intuitive and more visual than AWS. More obvious where things are and how to change their configurations, etc.""Being able to set up, change and configure VMs is easy - a lot easier than in AWS.""Feedback and error messages make much more sense in Azure than in AWS.""Azure has improved my organization because it is a new technology and so the customers who don't have enough knowledge about the cloud delegate the administration of their cloud infrastructure to us. We incorporate and add a new service to our product lineup about how to manage their Azure. It impacts our business because we're able to incorporate this new service.""The incorporation of several kinds of storage, such as SSD Premium, enhanced the performance of machines.""The scalability is good.""The most valuable feature is the single sign-on with multifactor authentication.""We are going to use Microsoft Azure to move some on-premise servers into the cloud so that our data can be held there."

"What I like the most is that we can convert databases into a proper multi-dimensional model, and then we can project with the integration with Power BI.""The solution does provide quite a lot of support, upgrades, automated batch updates, etc.""There's a minimum amount of downtime when using the solution. This platform is very effective.""One of the features that I've found most useful is that It's very simple. They take care of the technical aspects of the data, installations, patches.""The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past."

Cons
"There are a number of services offered by AWS that are not yet available on Azure.""The interface is not easy to use. I'd like to see them develop a better interface, more graphical information about the resource and the consumer.""Virtual networks might be improved by adding more rules for the validation of protocols and peripheral elements in security assurance.""I would like to see more advanced functionality in terms of information security.""The subscription licensing is very complex and we would like to have it simplified.""Microsoft Azure can be pretty advanced and difficult to understand. I would like it to be simplified. The licensing especially needs to be simplified.""Auto ML could be improved technically.""There were also a lot of constraints with the serverless parts."

"The stability needs to be improved to be able to handle large amounts of data.""Our data centers are in Europe and come under GDPR regulations, and this doesn't apply to the Middle East yet. It causes a lot of confusion.""The customer has a lot of dependencies on SAP which means they don't have much flexibility to go and update the system when or if they need to. They will need to wait for the quarterly updates. It's possible to maybe raise a special request with SAP if it is absolutely necessary.""They should probably offer more cloud services. Most of the cloud infrastructure providers we have make everything pretty transparent, you know what you're getting, you have all these metrics and measurements and everything in the dashboard. Here you have to go through the contracting negotiations and all those things.""This product is not mature enough at this point in time."

There are smaller sized competitors who offer cheaper prices.""The licensing fees are more than $1,000,000 USD annually.""Reducing the price would be of benefit to our customers.""The pricing for us is higher because we are using IaaS.""Pricing of Microsoft Azure services depends on the build of what you prepare to deploy.""It is important to consider ROI when looking at the cost of a subscription.""The cost is a little high and can be more competitive.""Monthly billing convenience reduced cost overheads up to 70 percent."
