Cons
"It is not straightforward to setup.""In the next release, I would like to see easy integration with external tools.""Pivotal Cloud Foundry is not scalable, infinitely, because when you install it on a set of virtual machines it is very hard to scale. It's easy to scale on an application level, but not it is not similar to if you were using Amazon. Amazon you can scale thousands of applications."

"Lacks flexibility in its licensing structure.""The current pricing model is credit-based. We would like to have more information about the usage of the existing applications.""I'd like to see more local integration.""The addition of more industry use cases would be an improvement.""While it was good for a small entity, it was not ideal for a large enterprise.""When they innovate too fast, they end up confusing their customers.""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.""The main problem is that there aren't any easy migrations from SAP PO to SAP CPI, so from process orchestration to cloud platform integration."
