We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution has plenty of good valuable features and a plethora of services.""It's very easy to use, and it's blazing fast. The best thing about Logic Apps is actually its ability to create a solution in a matter of hours. It doesn't need any kind of provisioning, and you don't need any kind of hardware. You can create very small elements like these Logic Apps, and you can build a whole solution from those very simple and small elements. I also like that they are completely incorporated with your existing active directory. You can use user groups directly from the active directory inside Azure and access it from the Logic Apps. You don't need to do anything special, and you just have access. You can just check if the user is, for example, allowed to do some action. Normally it would take you some additional steps and some additional calls to check it. You have to come back to the active directory to make this possible. In Logic Apps, you just have it, and you can use it. I think that there's this concept of logging and recall to the Logic App. It shows you every single step, every single product, and the result it's returning to the next step. It also has an amazing debugging feature. You can rerun some calls and see if, after a correction of the Logic App, for example, you get the correct results. So, it's almost like it's alive. It's like you make a change, poof it, and it's in production, and it's working. The speed of the composition of the problem and creating a real solution for it is extremely fast with this solution. It's extremely fast in creation.""The most valuable features of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps are the triggering based on certain events. You can trigger a Logic App and put your logic behind it and take certain actions. The actions could be anything based on the business logic. For example, if you say something happens, an order comes in, and the order can sit in one of the Azure services. Whenever an order comes in, the Logic App can go look and trigger an event. You can write your logic inside your Logic App and it works similar to a workflow.""Logic Apps is valuable because my team uses it for integrating SaaS tool sets.""What I found most valuable in Microsoft Azure Logic Apps is that you can run a workflow or do a high-level process orchestration, then you can call the other function and fulfill the process. For example, if you want to update a customer, you first need to get the customer's phone number and simulate the steps of the process, then Microsoft Azure Logic Apps can orchestrate that process.""The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps is the many available connectors that make automation easy. Additionally, the security of the solution is good.""I like the ability within Logic Apps to design the workbooks through the portal with minimal code."

"Though I'm not a massive fan of the SAP Cloud Platform, it has good features, such as its integration with other SAP solutions. When integrating with SAP or even the SAP sister company SuccessFactors and other companies SAP has acquired, you also enjoy data features in the SAP Cloud Platform, such as role-based permissions and other characteristics you can import from SAP.""It’s easy to maintain, as everything is handled by SAP.""The HANA replications are very useful.""The solution has a lot of great features.""The ability to expand it whenever required has been great — it's very simple.""Cloud Platform's stability is great.""It’s great that we have the entire suite of SAP at our fingertips.""The solution can scale."

Cons
"The documentation could be better. I think that's the only thing that was causing a normal level of problems. In terms of the documentation, it came from Cosmos DB and an additional product from Microsoft Azure.""Microsoft Azure Logic Apps can improve by continually updating the connectors to make them better.""I find the current interface useful, but I could see how others would want the UI bits that are used for creating Logic Apps to be simplified.""The support I have received is mixed because in some cases they are accurate, and in others, it was me doing the groundwork and giving feedback for the agent to finally tell me there is an issue in their larger services.""A room for improvement in Microsoft Azure Logic Apps is that it's expensive. Every step is going to cost you money, so if someone is not doing the steps carefully, at the end of the day, it will cost a lot of money. Each time you execute a step, the cost will depend on how much you use Microsoft Azure Logic Apps, and how many workflow steps you have. Each time a step needs to be executed, there'll be a cost added to your bill. If the developer isn't careful with how he uses the solution, this can blow up the cost. What I'd like to see in the next release of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps is for the cost and security to be better.""The stability of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps is stable. However, we have had some issues in the past. They do resolve issues that arise from new releases.""It would be beneficial to have less code and tighter integration between different cloud services."

More Microsoft Azure Logic Apps Cons →

"When I started looking at the client's IT architecture, I started by doing a study of their services, DVM, data volume, and management services. According to the results, they could be a lot better at this.""Lacks flexibility in its licensing structure.""It would be helpful to have additional samples for SoapUI that include interface methodologies and templates.""The current pricing model is credit-based. We would like to have more information about the usage of the existing applications.""I can’t speak to features that may be missing.""Shows errors without providing any analysis.""While it was good for a small entity, it was not ideal for a large enterprise.""From what I understand, the SAP Cloud Platform is for implementation on AWS or Azure, and it's not meant to be a full-fledged cloud solution, so while using the platform, an area for improvement is that it has fewer offerings and is less flexible when compared to AWS. AWS has a lot more flexibility than the SAP Cloud Platform. I've also used Azure in college and AWS in between, and I prefer AWS over the SAP Cloud Platform. The only reason I would ever stick with the SAP Cloud Platform is to create applications integrated with SAP or with other companies within SAP, such as SuccessFactors. When you go into the SAP Cloud Platform web page, it's a bit bland and has relatively limited offerings. For example, there doesn't seem to be in-house MongoDB support, but I realize there's in-house support for the PostgreSQL database, so there are fewer offerings in the SAP Cloud Platform. Yes, you can always go for a database on the actual MongoDB server rather than depending on the offerings of the SAP Cloud Platform. However, it's still better to support MongoDB from the platform, so payment is consolidated, rather than going to a different location to make a payment. Another room for improvement in the SAP Cloud Platform is the need to create an SAP subaccount if you need to use the platform unless you have an SSO login by Google or if you're using a different identity provider such as Microsoft or Google. Instead of requiring dependency on SAP, it would be good if users could use the SAP Cloud Platform even without a subaccount on SAP. For example, when hosting an application on AWS or Azure, you don't have to create an account in Amazon or Microsoft. You can still do it using Google. You can use almost anything, so I'd like SAP to improve by removing the dependency, particularly the requirement to create an SAP account to use the SAP Cloud Platform."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of the solution could be cheaper."
  • "If we are comparing to other public cloud vendors, such as Amazon or Google Cloud platform, I wouldn't say that it's expensive. However, when we're comparing between a host such as GoDaddy or Digital Ocean, then it's a bit on the expensive side."
  • "It's very cheap, but it comes with pluses and minuses. The positive thing is that it's very cheap, but on the other hand, it's extremely hard to tell how much it will cost. At the start of the project, it's almost impossible to tell how many times you will be calling some kind of Logic App function. You cannot state how much of the internet transfer you will use or how much data your will use."
  • "The price of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps is inexpensive."
  • "Microsoft Azure Logic Apps could be costly if a user isn't careful. The costs associated with the solution could still be improved."

  • "The cost when it comes to monitoring can be difficult."
  • "SAP offers yearly, subscription-based, and pay-as-you-use licensing."
  • "Cost-wise, I'm unsure of how expensive the SAP Cloud Platform is."
