Effective Cloud product that has the highest data protection capabilities and to migrate multiple project data and files across many other different platforms is quick and cost effective. IBM Cloud File Storage offers enough storage capacity that can accommodate multiple files for the different projects and easy uploading of all my project information on Cloud.

OnRamp is great for medium or large size companies that need to organize information in a way that is easily accessible. It is not great for small companies who don't have a lot of customers.

Cons

IBM

  • We have sometimes experienced some outages and hope IBM will fix this soon.
  • Initial trainings are required for the teams to work and do the setup.
  • Support documentation from IBM needs improvement with [the] inclusion of more detailed steps and video tutorials for [a] better understanding of the engineers.
  • The billing process is very complex and you may have to incur additional overhead. Need a simpler approach and clarity on this aspect.
  • Support response from the IBM team is very slow and lacks information.

  • I hear complaints from our donations department on how extractions can be difficult at times when pulling multiple years information
  • OnRamp can make room for improvement by allowing us to make changes from an admin standpoint on how we pull up certain reports

      I just had one issue requiring contacting the support. People were very friendly and helpful. I cannot rate better because I have not been exposed to other similar situations (just had one single issue in 6 months), and cannot rate lower because this proves that IBM is trustworthy. I think it is fair.

      In my opinion, IBM has produced excellent products that have been instrumental in the development of our business. We rely heavily on data to power the programs in our organization. Because our systems can be accessed from various apps without experiencing any downtime, integrating them with this platform is simple. The ability to tailor this platform to accommodate varying data quantities was a big plus for me.

      OnRamp is much easier to use then Financial Edge with its user-friendly interface. Financial Edge seems dated and is much more complicated when running reports.
