IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Magic xpa Application Platform Room for Improvement

Per-Olof Hermansson - PeerSpot reviewer
CEO at Mass Marketing Software AB

The solution is complex and has a long learning curve. I am not referring to its initial setup, which is very simple, but its use. 

Support is very bad. The main focus is placed on their own customers, big banks and big insurance companies, so those, like us, who are independent software vendors, are ignored. 

While I have tentative, though not definite, plans to increase the usage, the solution suffers from certain weaknesses, such as its essential lack of an internet web interface, a feature I really want. 

I rate the solution as a nine out of ten, since everything about it is good, save for the internet connectivity.

Everything having to do with the internet is underperformed, which is not good. This is my main issue with the solution.

The licensing is too costly. The runtime cost is very expensive, especially in respect of a big server with many clients. So too, the development tool is expensive, as is the yearly maintenance cost. 

While the solution is perfect for one who wishes to make local, standalone solutions on a Windows network or computer with an Oracle database, it is not well suited for internet-or-cloud-based distributed systems.
