"The documentation is very good."
"One of the most valuable features is that Amazon AWS has a lot of data centers and regions where we can position our virtual machines for leverage. Amazon AWS is also easy to use. You can quickly spin up something, use Explorer, building proofs of concept, things like that. Once the proof of concept is built once and we know how things are going to look from a production perspective, we try to move everything to the data centers. These features and the ease of use are the main reasons why we use AWS."
"It is quite easy to provision new virtual services for our use. The procedures are quite straightforward and simple as compared to other competitors, such as Microsoft or Huawei. This is what we are happy about with Amazon AWS. It is pretty mature in terms of the availability of most of the infrastructure components. If you want to deploy a server on your platform, everything is already there in terms of the operating system, network components, securities, and data encryption. It is also quite scalable and stable."
"I especially like the flexibility and scalability of the solution."
"The product is reliable and quite stable."
"I like ETL, the EC2 platform, and Route 53. These features are a great complement to the basic infrastructure of any company. The AWS platform has many features, but the fundamental cloud infrastructure is the most important."
"Friendly console for implementation."
"It has a lot of new features that make our lives easier in terms of what we want it to do in the house."
"The standard sales and marketing tools that Salesforce provides on the platform are the most valuable."
"I like the reports and the dashboards. Since I'm a managing partner, I use the reports and dashboards to understand my team's contact management, opportunity management, and account management activities. We use Pardot for marketing campaigns."
"The Salesforce Platform's most valuable features are everything in one place, perfect reporting, highly customizable, and easy to receive information you need."
"The product is pretty responsive."
"It is a great platform. It's definitely an improvement from the GCP application that we were using previously."
"The activities, opportunities, follow-up of the opportunities, and business tracking are valuable features. It provides everything that we need. It works pretty well."
"The reporting tools are very solid."
"The process and the workflows are amazing."
"AWS support could be better."
"The user interface (UI) needs improvement. Right now, it's not the best."
"Configuration could be simplified."
"The dashboard can be improved a little bit to provide more information."
"One problem is that the AWS public cloud doesn't have shared storage capabilities. The second thing is the cloud performance versus on-prem."
"While feasible, custom configuration will be more time consuming than standard."
"Their support can be improved. In some cases, their support is not as proficient as it can be. They should be quicker at getting back."
"They have a low code platform, but it is for intervention."
"There needs to be more documentation."
"The solution is a bit expensive."
"The biggest challenge we had was the cost and the licensing."
"Its documentation and price should be better."
"Salesforce also did not integrate well with some of the other systems that we had."
"Simplification is something it needs. Every time you get the engineers involved, they make things a little too complicated. It might be more beneficial to simplify everything for quick and easy reference."
"An expensive solution requiring a lot of configuration."
"Salesforce needs to be re-platformed, or re-architected, making it lighter."
Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3".
