"The product has been quite stable."
"Reduces work for our IT teams and saves us a lot of time."
"Azure is stable. I don't have any problems with it."
"Everything is very good by way of performance."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is its ease of use."
"We have found the scalability to be good."
"Offers many data security features including securing network access."
"Virtual machine services, in SaaS services, M365, and Data Lake are all popular with our clients."
"The solution is stable and we have never had a problem. We started with one terabyte of data when the solution was first implemented and today we have around almost 600 gigabytes of data, which means means the compression works properly. Before migrating from ECC, we had nine terabytes of data."
"The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past."
"Fiori is the most valuable feature, as well as the the integration between S/4 and another solution as an extension."
"This solution is as good as any other S/4HANA SAP solution. The continuous support we get is very valuable."
"The processes and the way we take advantage and use assistance are good."
"Traditionally, SAP worked with Oracle databases, but SAP is getting rid of the other databases and promoting its own. SAP will stop support for other databases around 2026, so everyone is moving to SAP S/4HANA for the performance and because it's the preferred database for SAP. S/4HANA has new features from the front-end or application feature perspective. The idea is to move toward future-ready technology."
"From a security perspective, there is always something that can be improved as we serve our customers."
"The integration pipeline could be a bit more broad in terms of applications."
"The cost management and billing section features could be improved."
"I think the cloud interface could be improved."
"With Microsoft, our only concern is exchange rates because we're paying in dollars. It's very expensive for us because of the exchange rates. It would help if they partnered with someone locally so we can pay in our local currency."
"Quite an expensive solution."
"The response time and stability of Microsoft Azure need to be improved."
"I think it would be good to keep making progress on giving users the ability to do action calls on Data Factory. Right now, it's mostly local. Perhaps Microsoft could add the ability to put some calls in the workflow."
"The only thing that could be improved is the cost."
"This product is not mature enough at this point in time."
"The solution is scalable from an infrastructure point of view. However, it becomes more complex over time because technology is changing so fast."
"SAP support isn't on par with products like Microsoft Azure or AWS. It's nowhere close to the competitors."
"The cost could be improved. I think it's higher than the competition."
"Perhaps minor changes to the enterprise structure could be made, but the rest is fine."
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.
