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.

C1 is great for creating custom reports. We have client apps where we've created some fairly complicated reports such as invoices and real estate inspections. We also use the True DBGrid in many of our apps since it is so customizable. Its grouping and filtering features are very nice and can provide summary counts and totals at the bottom or right side of the grid that are very handy.

  • The True DBGrid control is nice for showing parent/child relationships and being able to drill down and show the child data. It also is nice for showing summary totals.
  • The report engine is great for building custom reports for Win Forms or web apps. It can do everything that Crystal Reports can do.
  • They have a good selection of controls that can do just about anything you can imagine.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • Ability to integrate with Ethercalc software solution
  • Ability to introduce NFC toolchains and systems which could be utilized in iot modular gateway solutions like drones
  • Ability to reduce latency as the solution scales is very much needed
  • Hybrid solution which can integrate other existing iot solutions into AWS iot core

  • Sometimes it is difficult to figure out where things are in the properties of controls since there are so many things you can drill down into.
  • I find myself using Bing or Google a lot to look up how to do something. Some things are not very intuitive.
  • Of course, I would always like the price to be cheaper. The high price has caused us to not keep current and have the latest version.

Usability
Amazon AWS
I give AWS IoT Core's overall usability this rating because it is very easy to use and is enjoyed by all of our staff. The only problem is that it sometimes glitches and it freezes a lot. So overall, the usability of AWS IoT Core is very good, and we will continue to use it.

It covers all the aspects of IoT services required for an IoT company. It supports all the industry-wide protocols for secure data transmission and integrates powerful AL and ML technology for data analytics. For data storage, Amazon S3 is a great solution. Strong tech support and user community. Since it is widely used as compared to other products, there is an abundance of training and learning material on the web.

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.

We have been in business since 1992, so we have used many different products over the years. The two other products we've primary used that are similar to ComponentOne, are Infragistics and Crystal Reports. Infragistics has a vast array of controls similar to ComponentOne. We use both to be honest and I'm not sure which one I would pick over the other. I guess that would depend on what you're trying to accomplish and if one had some control or capability that the other didn't. ComponentOne does have the reporting capabilities, where Infragistics does not.

  • ComponentOne allows us to add additional features to our apps that wouldn't be found in apps written with just Visual Studio itself. That allows our clients to get more creative in their requirements, which in turn, means more work and billable hours for us!
  • Our apps appear more professional when using ComponentOne which helps us get projects for new clients.
  • ComponentOne also helps us to save clients some money since we are not having to develop things that it can do from scratch.
