Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Logic Apps is valuable because my team uses it for integrating SaaS tool sets.""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.""I like the ability within Logic Apps to design the workbooks through the portal with minimal code.""The solution has plenty of good valuable features and a plethora of services.""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.""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 feature of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps is the many available connectors that make automation easy. Additionally, the security of the solution is good."

"Oracle's self-service capabilities, of which we make extensive use, is the most valuable feature.""It's easy to construct new interfaces like apps and client portals.""Our use case is for integration factory for SAP. It is mostly for SAP integration."

More Integration Pros →

"Microsoft Azure Logic Apps can improve by continually updating the connectors to make them better.""It would be beneficial to have less code and tighter integration between different cloud services.""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.""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 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."

"Rules engine processes and BPM processes should be improved.""The products, at the moment, are new and there should perhaps be support for the older version of the protocols.""I am not satisfied with the solution because it takes too much effort to migrate and add new information. The migration could be easier."

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."
