The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale. The flexibility could be improved. The product is good if you know what you're planning to do. If you're designing as well, upfront, then it's fine. However, if you've made a mistake in the design work or your system, then it could be quite complex and expensive, and it may not preform well.

It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data. In other words, there should be a process that makes advanced analytics easier. The integration capabilities could be improved. They should improve their marketing to make it easier to sell to customers.

I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved. They should, I think, try to do more of this open-source initiative to encourage more people to use it. Otherwise, it's my opinion that they might lose our business in the long run.

What really needs to improve, is their general cloud services. That is their biggest downfall at the moment.

The user interface needs to be improved. The price needs to be more competitive as Hadoop, Redshift, Snowflake, etc are constantly making way into EDW space.
