"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."

"The customization could be improved."
"Their metadata management in AWS needs improvement."
"It works very well with open-source solutions like Java, but not with .NET technologies."
"There's a huge cost for support."
"The features that should be improved are that there should be better clarity on their invoicing. There are so many things they charge for - high line items in the invoice.

"In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing."
"They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients"

"My impression of the stability is that it is not good. Almost every month there is something new and that makes us nervous about delivery."
"We need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this."
"The solution requires more flexibility overall."
"The main problem is that there aren't any easy migrations from SAP PO to SAP CPI, so from process orchestration to cloud platform integration."
"I'd like to see more local integration."
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". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.
