Return on Investment

  • Probably Positive.
  • It has surely reduced the time it takes to handle data from Node-Red.
  • Rather than going for a third party DB hosted by some other provider, it's easier to do it all within the IBM cloud.

Return on Investment

  • Saving in-terms of cost of procuring and maintaining hardware, which will be realized over the next 5 years.
  • Positive ROI in terms of the number of FTEs involved in maintaining our databases; our DBAs can now focus on other important and business critical applications.
  • Best ROI in terms of our organization's vision - they are no longer anxious / nervous to move to the cloud. We are already on the CLOUD.

IBM Cloudant, Great Managed NoSQL at Significant Cost

Score 6 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Return on Investment

  • Cloudant allowed us to implement a project faster due to it being fully managed and basically a plug-and-play type data store.
  • Being fully managed meant that we spent a fair bit of time on the phone yelling at IBM Support because they didn't know jack about how to solve the issues we ran into/
  • Overall Cloudant worked for us because the project timeline and budget allowed for more money to be spent on services rather than hardware (OpEx vs CapEx).
