I would rate this solution a 9.5 out of ten. It's the leader in the public cloud and a leader in the market. I would recommend it to any customer using another solution. I would offer it as an alternative to another similar solution like IBM, Google and Azure.

Look for what is required to deploy the apps in your particular organization. For example, if it's AI-driven then probably Google is a better cloud to go after. If there are a lot of Microsoft applications or if developers or the IT staff were trained in Microsoft software, then Microsoft Azure is a better fit. I would rate AWS an eight out of 10 because it helps companies get started fast.
