While it depends on the business scenario, in some cases AWS offers better features. It's hard to speak to missing features at it really depends on the business case. However, in general, it has all the features a typical company might need. The solution needs to be marketed better. Developers should be pushed or enticed to use the solution more to get it more well-known on the market. It needs more of a presence. The solution offers a free trial, however, it is too short. You can't really properly test it before you have to start paying. They need to give companies a longer period of time to try it out risk-free. Also, the functionality is very limited. If you want to do a POC, you need the solution to offer more flexibility. Right now, you get a 14-day window, and that's not enough for a proper test.

The collection and analysis of historical data could be better. We use historical data and an assimilating algorithm to give us insights into the entire business process. We can collect all the historical data periodically to get insights into current business trends. For example, which area is getting emptied most of the time or which area is getting underutilized, and so on.

It is not complex, but it requires some development skills. When the data is sent from Azure Stream Analytics to Power BI, I don't have the access to modify the data. I can't customize or edit the data or do some queries. All queries need to be done in the Azure Stream Analytics.

There are some improvements that could be made, first of all in pricing, because right now the pricing is a bit unclear. It's hard to estimate how much of that is a local issue but you can't figure out how prices are calculated or the proprietary part of the cost. Another area that could be improved is that if something does go wrong, it's very hard to investigate what caused it and why. The logging is available but it lacks detail and doesn't provide much information.

There may be some issues when connecting with Microsoft Power BI because we are providing the input and output commands, and there's a chance of it being delayed while connecting.

We would like to have something that includes the desktops, and perhaps the main system, so we can protect our systems before a threat happens.
