Product Manager - SaaS at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of the product is that it has a very powerful command line.

What needs improvement?

It is difficult to say what should be improved because, obviously, they have made some major improvements in the organization of how you do things — such as the way you set up a server. Google has made a lot of effort to try and catch up to the competition in the area of ease-of-use because that… more »

What other advice do I have?

The lesson I learned from adopting Google Cloud is that you should do more training before you commit to it. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Google Cloud as an eight-out-of-ten. You can not have a perfect platform. There is always room for… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Initially, I was just doing research. I was keeping an open mind and looking at all of the possibilities. I do not think it is quite right to call it "evaluate" when you just do a feasibility study. We did take a closer look at a few solutions like Azure, Heroku, and Google Cloud. We dabbled a… more »

What is most valuable?

Both the hosting and the database are the most valuable features on this product.

What needs improvement?

The analytics could be improved. I need to be able to give them to the client. It is there, but you have to go to Google Cloud to see it. I want it added as a service so I can add it to the client-side and make it easily sharable with my… more »

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

The licensing for Google Cloud seems to be quite cheap and they're actually quite reasonable in comparison to Azure, which, as it turns out, is quite expensive. Even though Azure has a data center in South Africa it's still quite costly… more »

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

I've used Azure as well. I've used that for a while and now I've moved to Google Cloud. Then, for a client, I'm also going to use AWS. We switched from Azure because the setup is too complex, and, on the scalability side, you have to set it… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We don't have any special connection to the company in any way. Obviously, with Google, everything is the latest version. Google updates everything for you, so there isn't usually a time when we're on an "old version"… more »

What is most valuable?

Ubiquiti is what is most valuable. They have basically mimicked Microsoft, giving you the equivalent of Office 365 type of services that are available. It's robust, and it has a wide reach in terms of office applications including storage. It's easy to access in a public cloud environment.

What needs improvement?

Every once in a while I have trouble accessing it, but I don't know if that's a function of the Cloud, the way the Cloud is set up, or it's just something on my browser. Stability could be improved in terms of the Cloud in general administration. It's frustrating when companies have to deal with… more »

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

Prior to the public cloud, I used another solution more like a public hosting-type of service. It didn't give you the scale and the means of payment that you have with the Cloud. As an example, look at Lotus Notes, 1980 technology. There is no comparison, Google is far superior. People see the ease… more »

What other advice do I have?

We provide private networks, what we call VPNs. It is the older, traditional VPN type service for our customers, which gives them security and performance metrics that you can't get from the internet. We have a gen engine that has that interface into the cloud providers including Google. We don't by… more »
