"Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS."
"The most valuable feature of Heroku is the continuous integration and applications it provides."
"It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things."
"It is easy to deploy applications, and we don't need to bother about software updates on the server. We don't need to bother about machines, servers, and hardware. We only need to care about the system and functionality that we need or want to develop. They take care of everything else. It provides high availability. It is a pretty good solution that provides everything that we need. It has everything that we need to run our applications. We have many different applications, and we generate three million bills for a company in Brazil. We see more than a billion requests per day in another application. Everything works just fine, and it is very good."
"Microsoft has a lot of partners in this area, and they have a lot of information available online, so it's easy to get support."
"One of the most valuable features of Microsoft Azure is the compatibility with all of our Windows applications and other Microsoft technologies"
"The focus on security is excellent. We really appreciate that about the solution."
"The application services are the most valuable in Microsoft Azure. I'm not using them directly but I am using the function and the web applications. I don't need to pay a lot for the maintenance. I do not need to have a DevOps employee."
"The most valuable feature is the instant availability of resources."
"The most valuable features I have found to be the auto-scaling feature and the interface."
"I have not had a problem with the stability. It is reliable."
"I like the familiarity of this solution."
"We have to do daily restarts of some processes, which is annoying, and the support for custom CI could be better."
"Heroku doesn't support Docker images on the CI infrastructure."
"They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more."
"Their support is good, but they can improve their response time."
"Integration with other services could be much better."
"It would be nice to have faster support."
"I haven't checked the console for some time, however, compared to the AWS console, the interaction console of the web part, the web services, it's not so easy."
"Stability can suffer in the context of a large architecture."
"For deploying multiple resources in a big number, such as in hundreds, we need a streamlined process and more user-friendly scrips. The scripts have to be more user-friendly, and they should also supply some standard templates to deploy multiple resources at a time. Currently, it is very easy to deploy a couple of resources, but if you want to deploy multiple resources, it becomes complex. The material that they provide for integration with an existing on-prem data center is complex. They have to make them user-friendly. The scripts related to resource management need to be simplified."
"Use of the solution could be easier."
"We like that they have the new capabilities, but sometimes they're deprecating capabilities faster than we can handle. If we had to improve it, we would want to stay on some of these older capabilities a bit longer."
"I would like to see more advanced functionality in terms of information security."
