Because Altair does not handle the area of automated marketing plans adequately, it is not as relevant in the implementation for marketing agencies, but this is easy to solve if you use an external tool to execute mail marketing campaigns, and thus also cover the project advertising, or send informative announcements about the progress of the project.

End-to-end encryption is an amazing feature because we use IoT to connect to various devices in order to gather data/ stats in real-time. We're able to publish solutions with ease and at a faster rate because of AWS IoT Core. However, its inability to interact with other IoT tools is a big con that I would like them to improve upon.

Azure IoT service provides more or less the same services as compared to AWS IoT core, however the costing of AWS lead us to continued usage of IoT core over Azure IoT services. Also, considering our existing technology stack is on AWS, it was a natural selection for better integration and ease of use.
