Overall Satisfaction with Apple iCloud

Our organization uses Apple iCloud for storage and synchronization of documents and applications on Apple / IOS compatable devices used in the field work (e.g., data collection using ipads). However, most of the hardware in our organization has MS Windows as main operating system, so primary use of Apple iCloud is restricted to several Departments (e.g., Data Group).

Pros

  • Very user friendly and easy to use
  • Automatic synchronization
  • Quick and efficient

Cons

  • Expensive, lowering costs is important
  • Free version has very limited space
  • Manual synchronization is cumbersome and problematic
  • Improved efficiency of Apple device usage
  • Streamlined the process of data collection, sharing and dissemination using Apple devices
Microsoft OneDrive storage is preferred when using Microsoft applications (Word, Excel) even on Apple devices. All in all I believe Microsoft solutions fare better than Apple one due to their greater flexibility.
Apple iCloud is a must for organizations relying on Apple / iOS architecture. It is less suited for organization where MS Windows and MS cloud are key solutions.
