"It is so huge and so powerful. The best thing is the possibilities of things that you can actually do with it. If you do it right, you can work or host your stuff a lot cheaper than traditionally. Its security is good, and it also reduces the strain on internal IT."
"The solution is easy to use and flexible."
"We didn't have any problems setting it up."
"Reliable with ease of provisional services."
"In terms of scalability, it is perfect."
"My experience with technical support so far is very good."
"There are many different components such as SaaS, PaaS, and API so every month they are releasing a few hundred new features."
"It's a reasonably priced solution."
"The solution provides a preferred method of backing up data."
"I like it because of the fact that it lets me know what I'm working on and what I've recently worked on. It also helps me and allows me to do tracking. If I want to go out and find out how many times I've touched customers, I can find that information out. It tracks such information, and we use it. If we send any type of promotions out, it tracks who gets those promotions and how they've responded to those promotions."
"It has definitely improved how we function."
"Its stability, performance, and usability are most valuable."
"Salesforce's strongest feature is reporting especially. It's also a lot more usable than other platforms I've worked with. It has a great user experience, with the ability to filter and access information in real-time."
"It is a great platform. It's definitely an improvement from the GCP application that we were using previously."
"It works beautifully. I haven't had any errors."
"A fully integrated solution that provides a seamless experience."
"Performance could be improved."
"Price could always be better. The features come in quickly, so we're comfortable with the feature set that is available to us."
"I think the cloud interface could be improved."
"Maybe Azure could add an address code to create your analysis without SQL or Python because some business users don't want it to code. So it's good to have a service application that connects to the data lake to conduct analysis and simplify the business process."
"More expensive than other solutions without justification."
"I'd like to see better integration with S/4HANA integrated and other services, like monitoring, for example."
"Integration with other services could be much better."
"I would prefer Microsoft Azure to increase the free trial, then developers can take advantage, and it could increase their sales."
"When we're documenting information such as notes, and so forth, if we were to go back to the same case all notes go missing."
"Its documentation and price should be better."
"Salesforce is incredibly slow. It was difficult to run live sales calls and leveraging Salesforce at the same time."
"Reporting could be better. Reporting is Excel-based, and it has sucked since the inception of the company. That's why I was excited about the fact of them bringing MuleSoft into the fold and Tableau."
"The initial setup is rather complex."
"Integration needs improvement."
"Salesforce's mobile app could be better. Also, it could integrate more seamlessly with Gmail."
"Although the platform is already set up for you, there's a lot of customization that needs to be done, especially for any new component we start using. For whatever solution we wanted, we had to think for ourselves and design it all on our own. And, unfortunately, there were some components that were not really mature in the beginning, like Tableau for example."
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform, where developers can create, deploy, and maintain their apps. This cloud application platform allows developers to concentrate on the actual applications, while it takes care of all the elements behind the apps.
Windows Azure works across multiple frameworks and languages. It is fully scalable, localized in that it is hosted globally in many datacenters, and has widespread capabilities with elements of application development, deployment, and management.
Azure is comprised of several different service modules, including Infrastructure; Web; Mobile; Dev & Test; Big Data; Media;Storage, Backup & Recovery; and Identity & Access Management.

"It is a flexible solution that is straightforward to use," says the principal consultant at a computer software company.
“You can build an environment in minutes. It's very good in terms of being an infrastructure as a service, and I found that really fascinating,” says an information technology consultant at a computer software company.
"I think Azure's level of automation to achieve efficiency or agility is valuable. I also like the change capability cadence, the showback capabilities, and understanding what our costs are," says an enterprise architect at an energy/utilities company.
Marco C., Ing. at Wolters Kluwer, says "The valuable features of Microsoft Azure are that it is cloud-based and has good storage. The storage is completely managed by Azure. We do not need to do any patching of security because it is handled by Azure which is a benefit. The solution is fully compatible with the Microsoft technology stack and is very scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is it has everything together in one place. It is one large tool with lots of small tools that are updated often," says the owner of a media company.
