Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cognito

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 has a very high positive impact. It reduces a lot of man-hours trying to develop and integrate with many other platforms.
  • I would appreciate it if there are additional IDPs added to Cognito.
When compared to Okta, I would say Cognito is still not up to pace with Okta. However, I guess they are constantly updating their features and will soon come with the new features. I would say Cogntio provides a better interface than Azure.
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.
