Well Suited
  1. B2C mobile and web apps with a high number of users.
  2. Cheaper and cost-effective.
  3. If the other pieces of the infra are already using AWS services like Lambda, S3, Pinpoint, etc.
Not Suited For:
  1. Advanced use-cases (Biometrics based authentication) Email, and other MFA channels.
  2. For any use-cases needing SCIM.
  3. Customized flows of SSO, and MFA will need a layer on Lambda and other AWS services.

Notarize
We are a very small business and a nonprofit at that so being mindful of overhead costs is essential to our functioning and longevity. I would recommend Notarize for any small business that is unlikely to have a notary public in house or needs to be mindful of the time and human capital needed to constantly be traveling in person to notarize documents. With Notarize, we have been able to find a cost-effective method without losing any of the high-level quality we require. Furthermore, because we often work from home in many different time zones, we don't have to worry any longer about getting to a notary within the traditional 9a-5p business day and can get documents notarized in the times that work best for our schedules.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • Amazon Cognito has a bit of a learning curve. You need to learn its concepts and terminology. The documentation does not describe some topics comprehensively.
  • Some Console screens would benefit from improved search and filtering options.
  • When another AWS product (e.g., SageMaker) configures Cognito on your behalf, it is not clear what you're getting. For example, the expiration of a temporary password was configured but never communicated.

Support Rating
Amazon AWS
AWS Support overall is poor. Your main resources are trainings and the docs, and the docs can be very confusing. Using Cognito well involves having a developer learn it deeply and help support your team in understanding it. That said, Cognito's competitors also have dismal support and even worse documentation, so while this isn't a strength for Cognito it may still be the frontrunner here.

We looked at other services such as DocuSign Notary, OneNotary, ENotaryLog, and Notary Cam. Ultimately, it was clear that Notarize provided us with the most reliable, trustworthy, consistent, and professional services relative to the price. The ease of use and mobile-friendliness of the platform has made us feel proud of our decision. We have not since questioned it at anytime.
