What is most valuable?

Mostly we enjoy the orchestration of microservices as you can have a Spring Boot application and build your own steps. You can deal with multiple processors as you need. There is a Spring Task inside CDF. That task is also helpful for a… more »

How has it helped my organization?

For example, like PCF, all the cloud services, has their own microservice management infrastructure. However, if you have a CDF running, then the developer has more control over the messaging platform. How we can control the data flowing… more »

What needs improvement?

The configurations could be better. Some configurations are a little bit time-consuming in terms of trying to understand using the Spring Cloud documentation. The documentation on offer is not that good. Spring Cloud Data Flow documentation… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've had experience with Apache 95 and also Spark, however, Spark is just an execution engine mostly. They also have similar architecture. Apache 95, like this solution, is also open-source. We've looked at Amazon Step Function, however… more »

What needs improvement?

There may be some issues when connecting with Microsoft Power BI because we are providing the input and output commands, and there's a chance of it being delayed while connecting.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost of this solution is less than competitors such as Amazon or Google Cloud. If we only use one hour then we are only charged for one hour. It is very easy and some products are more expensive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Since transitioning from our email-only solution, we have been able to set the interval that we use to retrieve logs from the devices. We did not use a similar product before this one for the same… more »

What other advice do I have?

Azure Stream Analytics is something that we were able to easily learn. It doesn't take much programming sill, so I feel that it is easy to start using. Other than the problem with delays in connecting… more »
