Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"This solution is providing a platform with OOTB features that are difficult to build from scratch.""We are able to operate client’s platform without downtime during security patch management each month and provide a good SLA (as scalability for applications is processed during heavy client website load, automatically).""The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications.""Provides support throughout the whole platform."

More OpenShift Pros »

"The most valuable features are quick customization, solid deployment processes, and excellent reliability.""We haven't had any issues with stability so far.""I'm not sure what the most valuable aspect of the solution is, but I can say that their finance and auditing systems are quite impressive. You can audit in different invoices right to procurement. It's all quite seamless.""Features they are integrating to the other services.""The most valuable feature is ease of use.""The product is pretty responsive.""The queue management of the solution is its most valuable aspect.""We like that the technology is very agile and flexible in the sense that there's a large partner ecosystem within Salesforce Platform. This enables us to choose from many different partners with different advantages, and all of it can be done in a plug-and-play kind of way."

Cons
"If we can have a GUI-based configuration with better flexibility then it will be great.""Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions.""The solution only offers support for one server."

More OpenShift Cons »

"The cost of data storage is an issue once the company grows.""I would like to have integration with Google.""The solution offers upgrades at a slower pace. The solution needs to keep up with competitors.""They need an easy way of getting details and then adding to it and then being able to do it in a more simplified way""The marketing automation needs improvement.""Better flexibility in editing emails created from templates would be great, and being able to add hyperlinks in emails for scheduling meetings would allow us to automate more.""If you have resellers or distributors, you just need to figure out a way to set up the system in the backend. Since every company is different, it takes a little bit of time to figure that out.""The initial setup is rather complex."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"It is an expensive program.""The licensing is per user per month, which we took out a contract on a long time back. It's really an okay price for what solutions are available and for how many features and what kind of functionality you get."
