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.

In general, the entire suite of PaaS is valuable. It enables a true breakdown of IT siloes and allows an organization to embrace DevOps.

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.

Microsoft Azure Cons

Rodrigo Ramele
Mobile Lead Engineer at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
Scalability is definitely in need of improvement. Azure is a very good solution but it still lacks the performance of other cloud platforms.
Azure does not handle scalability as well as its competitors. Sometimes a 10 percent increase in a server with 20 percent of CPU usage pushes the server up to 100 percent load, and you start having performance issues.
We had issues with the Mobile Service ORM and the Azure SQL Database (cloud version of SQL Server). At times, the queries that are created automatically from the ORM mapping are not very well optimized for this database and that can lead to performance and stability issues. On occasion, the connection manager from the ORM does not handle the database connections very well.

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.

You eventually end up with a large collection of 'bits' all working together, I find it hard to be able to create a logical 'box' and put all the 'bits' that need to be in that box / application into the one place.
