I recommend this service for creating and growing a wide range of solutions, from the simplest to the most complicated ones. Even in a very competitive market for professional services, the central and distinctive techniques that gather the most reliable solutions and suppliers in one location may be enough to meet demand. In a single location, I can meet all of my technology needs and get access to superior assistance.

IBM

  • The software appears to be geared for a no-programming approach, which implies that making changes is more difficult.
  • The user base is small making it monotonous and difficult to come up with new methods.
  • The number of rankings is not as large as competitors.
  • The admin end is poorly designed, as they are unable to receive and respond to client feedback.

    As with most IBM products the ongoing support for IBM Power Virtual Server is solid and consistent. IBM provides a clear roadmap for receiving support of their products. Both voice and online response is offered. It is obvious that IBM has the internal systems and culture to maintain support functions. This starts from the initial support call to the problem analysis and continues through the problem resolution. Documentation and communication are consistent within this process.

    IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

    Return on Investment

    IBM

    • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
    • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
    • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.
