  • We are already seeing a really good ROI after just 2 months.
  • Still can not justify the price. Amazon needs to come off the price hike.
  • Continue to support the application through the support line.

  • Amazon Cognito supports both web services management needs such as authentication or user registrations. It integrates easily with external services and the authentication of an application can be easily configured.

  • ROI is great for Amazon Cognito Overall.
  • It is included in the AWS Free Tier so you can use it for a good amount without paying, so the software can be tested beforehand.
  • The paid pricing is also affordable, so a positive impact on ROI.

  • Amazon Cognito has had a positive impact on our business by allowing us to develop services that require user sign-up and sign-in more rapidly. Not only do we not need to build or maintain these features, but Cognito's implementation is also better than what we would be justified in building ourselves.
  • Amazon Cognito makes user management easy. This reduces the time we have to spend supporting users. Non-technical product managers can even use the AWS Console to manage users without requiring support from developers.
  • Amazon Cognito is likely more secure than what would be built in-house; a portion of our attack surface is now managed by Amazon.
