Overall Satisfaction with Google App Engine

I used Google App Engine in my final year project to store news stories relating to crime in a database and then plot them on a Google Map depending on whether they were "crime" stories or not.
  • Database management
  • User Friendly
  • Excellent GUI
  • Provide webinars
  • Implement modules in college and Universities to use the product
  • Give regular seminars to students and businesses
  • Not sure as I used it for a final year project in University
It is easy to use and saves a lot of time for programmers. I really enjoyed querying databases and being able to see very easily what I had done and still had to do. It was easy for testing and quickly changing something and instantly seeing the results.
Will the person be able to use it to it's full potential?

Using Google App Engine

I am not using it as much as I am not in a role that would require me to use it.

Evaluating Google App Engine and Competitors

Yes - I looked at some Natural language processors and ended up creating a "trigger word list" with Google App Engine instead, this made it more customizable for me and my project. Using my own list of crime words made me more confident in the results I was receiving from the data I was collecting.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
Usability is of upmost importance I think, also the visual display needs to be user friendly and easy to navigate otherwise it can add to your work load and sometimes turn you off recommending it to peers or colleagues in your work environment.
