"The Logic Apps and Azure functions are very robust."
"I've used Microsoft Azure App Service quite a lot, and what I like best about it is that it's a serverless HAM, which is a feature that can run a function, a single function, but faster and more frequently without needing any other assistance. This has been what I found most valuable in Microsoft Azure App Service, the serverless option that's very easy to utilize, and you only need a minimal setup to use this and to enjoy the functionalities required, so the solution gives me a lot of comfort whenever I'm using it."
"The cost is reasonable."
"We are able to do millions of things simultaneously."
"This solution is easy to deploy."
"It allows you to host your App Service on Azure and provides the ability to bypass online."
"The best feature is scalability, which allows you to target potential clients worldwide by connecting the application to a local server. This makes the application readily accessible, and the response time will be much better."
"I like that it's a ready-to-use, out-of-the-box solution that provides all of the necessary functions for customers, such as codes that can be quickly switched from the production version, or from test and DEV versions to production."
"The initial setup is not overly complex."
"It's not that difficult to set up."
"Technical support is helpful."
"From an IoT use case perspective, we're all good, however, we should have additional plugins."
"The configuration is slow without understanding the systematic process."
"If you're on the cloud, you just get a web interface without much detail for additional configuration or the authority to configure the root or system-level configuration."
"The solution needs better integration capabilities on the network side."
"There are no issues with the solution."
"The cost management of this solution could be better. We only receive estimations."
"It would be fantastic if Microsoft morphed after my exit service, removing it from subscriptions and moving it to different regions, especially for that service."
"Initially, there were some rare instances when the server went down because it was deployed on Linux."
"The licensing model is a bit dated."
"SAP has announced that they'll be ending the support on the SAP platform."
"If it was low code or no code it would be ideal."

SAP Mobile Platform is a mobile enterprise application platform developed to make it easier to create applications that connect business data to mobile devices for workflow management and back-office integration. SAP Mobile Platform provides a layer of middleware between heterogeneous back-end data sources such as relational databases, enterprise applications and files, and mobile devices that need to read and write back-end data. The platform is very helpful to developers, making it quick and easy for them to link backend data to mobile users on any device at any time and providing them with optimum visibility, which leads to increased profitability.
Using SAP Mobile Platform’s development tools, application developers can write the business logic for mobile applications, as the platform is optimized for business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) relationships. The program automatically does the translation necessary to create specialized versions of the new application for a variety of mobile devices and operating systems. This enables quicker and simpler development of complex applications that use multiple data sources and function on a variety of mobile devices. SAP Mobile Platform currently provides advantages across numerous industries to customers of all sizes and backgrounds.
