"It's very easy to build a new service and get it into production."
"The stability has been excellent."
"The solution offers very good upgrades and updates regularly."
"In terms of managing and configuring infrastructures, Azure is fairly good."
"Provisioning a server is fast, taking only one or two minutes before it is ready."
"In terms of scalability, it is perfect."
"In terms of computer resource management and reduced cost, it is very, very effective. In large environments, it gives you a lot of flexibility to provide different services, like disaster recovery and business continuity with simple and great options because you don't have to spend a lot of time for maintenance, upgrades, and security."
"It's a reasonably priced solution."
"I like that they are very familiar with our VM which makes it easy to use."
"The solution adds great value to any organization."
"This product is currently the leading product within this category."
"The HANA database is a valuable feature"
"The Fiori interface is the most valuable feature. It's one of the highlights that they offer. The in-memory of S4 is very fast."
"We have faced some issues on the pricing side, but it has improved lately. We are trying to adjust to the new pricing methods that they are using now. It should be better from now on."
"The initial setup could be simplified."
"The solution could improve by providing a better user interface and more organized workflows."
"We need more customization and support for doing so."
"It is pretty secure, but it can always be more secure."
"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."
"Its subscription price could be cheaper."
"It should have a better hybrid-cloud central analysis. Their support service also needs to be improved. Our main concern is support calls. Our issue is basically related to the technical functionality of the services that we use. It doesn't behave as expected, and support often fails to solve the problem."
"I would like for them to have more integration with virtualization platforms."
"The product could use more capabilities in the areas of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, but these improvements are already on the way."
"The product can be very complex."
"Doesn't have a common development environment."
"Not just S4 but for SAP in general, the price is a little high because they have implemented a new licensing scheme on a number of connections. The price being too expensive is some of the feedback we get from our customers."

"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.
