"Almost everything is good. It is a whole ecosystem. It is not only the storage, computing, or networking. It is interesting in the way all things are combined to form this ecosystem. It is a very well-built and logical ecosystem that has some small building blocks. These building blocks can be used in the right way to build a much bigger ecosystem that is robust, secure, scalable."
"Amazon AWS has many merits, in terms of scalability, stability, and availability. I have loved using this tool."
"I like ETL, the EC2 platform, and Route 53. These features are a great complement to the basic infrastructure of any company. The AWS platform has many features, but the fundamental cloud infrastructure is the most important."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"AWS is constantly growing in features with every new version. It's a good cloud provider with excellent availability. The integration is good, and their security products are interesting. Amazon is always innovating and delivering new products to customers."
"The solution offers a low footprint. We don't have to come up with a data center ourselves. We basically don't have to own any hardware. We just rent a slice of their platform and we have everything we need."
"There are many valuable features, I find the EMR in the platform easy to use and to learn."
"Some of the valuable features I have found to be the virtual server is easy to understand, a secure environment, and AWS has a fast community for finding solutions to problems you might be facing."
"The standard sales and marketing tools that Salesforce provides on the platform are the most valuable."
"Salesforce is the best one out there."
"It is a great platform. It's definitely an improvement from the GCP application that we were using previously."
"The stability has been great."
"The most valuable feature is ease of use."
"I'm not sure what the most valuable aspect of the solution is, but I can say that their finance and auditing systems are quite impressive. You can audit in different invoices right to procurement. It's all quite seamless."
"The keyword search helps me in finding stuff quickly. So, I don't have to click around a lot."
"It is very modular in approach. It is very light, and it can be used on various devices. It could be used on an Android phone or a laptop, which makes it good for the sales team on the road."
"Amazon support could be better."
"Amazon AWS could be improved by lowering the general storage price."
"There is no control of downtime."
"The customization could be improved."
"A person with no AWS experience might find it overwhelming at first."
"The availability could be better."
"The pricing of AWS is very unclear. They make it quite confusing."
"The price could be better. Support for data analytics could be better. I don't see much support for data analytics. They have a lot of support in Azure, but I don't see a lot of innovation on the data analytics side in AWS."
"When it switched to lightning, it threw me for a loop. When they changed the look and feel, I had a hard time finding things and doing what I used to do."
"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."
"Simplification is something it needs. Every time you get the engineers involved, they make things a little too complicated. It might be more beneficial to simplify everything for quick and easy reference."
"I was using the nonprofit free version of Salesforcecalled Vtiger which is different from the main version. It has a lot less accessibility than others and a lot less flexibility. It was more difficult to adjust, but ultimately it was satisfactory. I believe they still have a long way to make it very satisfactory. It's good software and platform. However, Salesforce is an okay platform to utilize. Additionally, the reports need some improvement."
"There's a learning curve. It was a bit hard to understand the logical way of working with it, just at the beginning."
"We have a lot of strategic accounts and large accounts that are tied with all the growth and acquisitions across North America, being able to tag parent-child accounts in an easier fashion would be better. This is the biggest pain point is associating parent to child and being able to align and manage it better. Overall a better parent-child relationship between accounts would be a benefit."
"Getting reports in Salesforce is sometimes a little bit difficult. You need to do a lot of things to get detailed reports. This feature can be improved. Its price can also be improved. It is currently expensive."
"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."
Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com.
