Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cognito

We are moving to Cognito for our public websites. We used to have our own solution but moving to AWS put Cognito into the picture. Tests have been very good so we are now implementing it. As we potentially have millions of logins, AWS allows us to scale easily without any issues.
  • Easy to use and administer User Manager
  • Even easier to use for our clients
  • Setting it up is relatively easy
  • There is a learning curve for using it
  • Easy to use modern user manager service.
  • Moving from our own build user manager will need to be carefully done, we need to be careful about that.
We use our own build user manager at the moment which works okay in our current on-prem situation, but not great. Choosing for the cloud and AWS, in particular, allows us to use AWS Cognito for resiliency, ease of use, great features and scalability. Not all of which were as good in our on-prem situation.
Community support is excellent, many times even better and quicker then the offical AWS support. I really cannot recommend community support enough! Apart from that the service is relativily easy to use and does not have a huge learning curve. Examples are easy to follow and will help you start using the service.
All the features AWS Cognito offers gives the user the options they need without making it too complicated. Your customers will be happy. On the administration site usability is also great. After a small learning curve, you can setup Cognito for your usage.

Being in the AWS ecosystem makes Cognito a strong contender. We needed a kind of user manager for our public websites after moving to AWS. Cognito is the service suitable for this and it does fulfill our requirements. Though we are still in the process of moving, the tests are going great.
