The policy-based remediation is probably the biggest area where Azure is lacking and that's why we sell a lot of our technology to our customers. We don't really use the Azure tools that much. We look at the underlying services themselves. I don't really go into the Azure console and therefore I don't know about specific missing features. It's actually quite good as a solution. It's actually pretty reasonable. However, it just doesn't have the automation that's required at scale.

They can optimize some of the features. Optimization and scalability could be increased. Also, the licensing cost and transitional cost can be reduced.

The solution could use automatic emailing. That would help improve the product a lot, at least for our purposes. If Azure could automate the creation of reports and have the system automatically email us on the solution, that would be ideal. It would even be acceptable to have them available on the dashboard so we don't have to go back and set up the same filters every time. That would be a time-saver for us. Just to have the solution automated to that extent would be good. Overall, however, we've been pretty happy with the way the solution functions. There isn't too much missing, in my opinion.

Adding a simple workflow automation capability would be helpful. In our HR, procurement, and finance departments, all of the processes are manual. I would like to see improvements made in performance and reporting.

I think there could be improvements but it's difficult to come up with something specific. I know that the product is a lot better than it was a year ago, I can get all the information I need.

For us, it only works for one provider. So we need to be more of a hybrid solution for any cloud. If it worked better with other cloud providers it would be better. I would like it to give you more. Not only a cost management review. I would like to see more insights into our cloud infrastructure. We use metrics like CPU, RAM and application utilization. So it could be good to have something like that. The interface is ok, but it could use some improvement.

I would like to have more granularity of the different services that we have.

Self-healing could be a nice addition to this solution. It would be nice if they had self-healing. It would be good if they could introduce connections to other clouds. It would be good to connect to AWS and Oracle cloud.
