We use cognito to manage user sign in and authentication for our projects built on AWS architecture. Usually our clients need strong and reliable authentication features implying federated entities like Facebook across a software ecosystem.
  • Has good synergy with AWS ecosystem
  • Reliable sign-in features
  • Building a gateway Cognito User pool authorizer
  • Learning curve and documentation
  • Android SDK implementation
If you are working strongly with AWS technologies, Cognito is the way to go. On the other hand, if you work strongly with mobile technologies and federated identities, you could prefer firebase.

In our organization, we help customers who are currently using AWS Cognito. There are many Enterprise clients of ours who use Amazon Cognito. It's an amazing product I would say. The main business problem for us is while integrating the client applications, we need to decide how to integrate our application with other services like Gmail, Linkedin,...etc. For this purpose, Amazon Cognito does a great job with their SDK.
  • Can easily manage the users.
  • Very good UI design helps manage the users list efficiently.
  • Security groups and roles provides very efficient security.
  • Maybe they can improve more on the grouping part.
  • All the users come under the same Cognito User Pool. If the IAM can be restricted to per group level of User Pools, then that would be really helpful.
It's well suited for quick start of application, which needs to be integrated with multiple other applications. It may be not suited for applications which are already using high security in place, meaning if customers are already using OAuth, then I don't think this would be an effective solution.
