Overall Satisfaction with Azure App Service

We are using Azure App Service to get a handle on organizing and staying current with our ever-increasing offering of mobile and web-based apps for our customers, dealers, and installers. Before using Azure App Service, we had the apps hosted where ever the developer of the day hosted their stuff. We had no idea when we had staff turnover of where they all were. Azure App Service helped us keep everything in one place, and we could better track usage and version control.
  • Single source for ALL of our apps.
  • Revision control is easy with the info we embed into the apps.
  • It is a bit overpowering at first to get up to speed. You need to have an Azure ninja available to help you set things up right from the start. If you don't, you can waste a lot of time redoing things the way you should have in the beginning.
  • Be ready to invest in having the right people on you staff to manage this for you.
  • Azure App Service has reduced our time needed to manage our entire collection of apps, making the digital marketing team more efficient with our time.
  • By having the latest versions of our apps organized as we do, we feel they are used more often by our various customer groups.
After exhaustive testing, we settled on Azure App Service because we felt they offered the best solutions in the price range we willing to pay for. It also was a natural extension of our website hosting package on Azure, and it is nice to be organized in one place.
I give the Azure App Service support an 8 instead of a 10 because there are time when it is easier to google a problem and find an answer than it is to use the learning library to find an answer. I would say the universe of user group members willing to offer suggestions is amazing.
