What is most valuable?

The solution has powerful reporting features that are very valuable. The user interface is the standard SQL management tool, so it's very easy to navigate.

What needs improvement?

The ALM features can be improved, but the database by itself is reliable.

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

The solution isn't expensive. My company has a subscription model for software licenses. This way, it's very inexpensive because if you have one big cluster of databases, you have literally no cost.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.
