I would highly recommend Azure machine learning design for those with less access to high-end computing infrastructure, as using Azure saves a lot of time, money, and effort by providing a hustle-free platform that is easy to use and train your employees on. On the other hand, if you are looking for complete control of the machine learning model you create and would like to add detailed functionalities and try different algorithms, then Azure is less suitable here as it’s very high level.

Cvent Event Management has streamlined our processes, allowing a
small staff to manage our events effortlessly. From event set-up through
feedback, the software integrates all elements, reducing duplication of effort.
Our contact database tracks our membership, allowing us to charge the
appropriate registration cost and send event emails based on registration type.
Using the Attendee Hub App, we have eliminated the paper program and
communicate instantaneously with our attendees. Printing the badges onsite has
allowed us to keep registration open longer and gain more attendees.

Cons
Azur Systems
  • Limited storage for those using the free version.
  • Limited number of machine learning algorithms.
  • Because of its high-level design, it doesn’t give the developers much control as you don’t write much code in to do what you exactly want.

Cvent
  • Allowing more in depth paths for registration questions (i.e. drill-down questions as needed)
  • Hotel widget does not model in a user-friendly way, allowing for customer confusion and cumbersome work-arounds
  • Flex Email customization widgets need to integrate into the emails more smoothly and be able to customize to have the same look, feel, font of the written text. At this time it does not allow for the same level of customization.

We are very pleased with the features that Cvent gives us. The ease of use and the immediate support when something does stump us. Cvent provides us with everything that we need to run a successful event. The only reason I did not Rate Cvent as a 10 is the cost

Overall, Cvent Event Management is a highly usable platform, with a user-friendly interface and a wide range of features and tools to help plan, promote, and manage events. The platform is designed to be intuitive, allowing users to easily navigate and access the various features and functionalities. One of the key benefits of Cvent Event Management's usability is its high level of customization.

This can include custom registration forms, event websites, email communications, and more. Additionally, Cvent Event Management provides robust data analytics and reporting, enabling users to gain insights into attendee behavior, event performance, and ROI. The platform also offers real-time reporting, which can be particularly useful during an event, allowing organizers to monitor attendance and event progress. While there may be a learning curve for some of the more advanced features, overall, the platform is highly usable and intuitive and we have had positive experiences with the platform's usability, citing its ease of use, customization options, and comprehensive feature set as key benefits.

Cvent does go down pretty frequently. And while it often doesn't impact day to day use usually, if it does go down at the wrong time, you may not be able to access very important event information when you need it. Usually outages do not last very long, but it could still be a very bad situation if this happens at the wrong moment

I have very rarely needed support, but when I did, it seemed that there was an underlying push for a webinar, training session, or multiple phone calls. If I have a question or a need, that should be addressed nothing else.

It would have been nice during implementation if we had received more pointers on how to organize our parked report folders, libraries, etc. to avoid the mess we find ourselves in today. If we had known ahead of time the limitations we could have planned better.

It’s fierce competition, but Azure as a Microsoft product is more stable and performs better than Amazon AWS since all of our machines are built on Microsoft Operating systems. Azure provides a pay-per-minute service, unlike AWS, which provides a pay-per-hour service. Azure allows direct linking to exist cloud storage that we already use at our institution, such as OneDrive. Azure has a friendly and easy-to-use interface that staff and students are already used to working with other Microsoft products.

Eventbrite is not able to handle the complex registration forms that Cvent can. It does not collect as much information, cannot produce the save level of reports, and does not allow for multi-leveled and/or multiple registration types within one form. Being able to offer, and compare, those is vital to determining our ROI and event planning efforts. Additionally, Eventbrite does not provide as many customizable options or branding opportunities.

Return on Investment
Azur Systems
  • Reduce energy consumption caused by GPUs.
  • Saves on recycling and transporting costs and maintenance caused by buying high-end equipment.
  • Improve productivity as building products using Azure is easier than building everything up from scratch (e.g., machine learning and AI applications).
