Amazon Cognito

Amazon Cognito is great for small, internal tools and for integrating with Amazon's serverless products. I would review its features very carefully if I were considering it for a larger, public-facing application because I believe that migrating off of Cognito would be problematic. Cognito is great for internal tools; for example, it has allowed our data scientists to build annotation tools with managed user pools without requiring engineering support.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cognito

It is easier to build multi-factor single sign-on with Okta. Okta has better documentation and provides a better developer experience. It lacks Cognito's seamless integration with other AWS products, however, integration with other Amazon products (like Lambda for customizing sign-in workflows, or SageMaker for Ground Truth labeling tools) is very powerful.

Return on Investment

Amazon Cognito

  • It has a very high positive impact. It reduces a lot of man-hours trying to develop and integrate with many other platforms.
  • I would appreciate it if there are additional IDPs added to Cognito.
