Overall Satisfaction with IBM Cloud Functions

We use IBM Cloud Functions on a case by case basis for our app development teams. It helps our teams and developers scale on mobile and easily with swift integration
  • Makes mobile scalability really user-friendly, easy language integration
  • Good for triggering IoT apps when certain criteria/validations are met
  • Billing can be a hassle, not the most responsive customer service/support team
  • Handles & executes most functionalities, but other platforms offer more scalability if you're seeking consistent and stable growth
  • Overall, it's been a great platform with good UX that helps our developers learn more about the potentials of serverless backends and mobile dev
  • The event scheduling has also proved very useful
AWS Lambda might be more suited for larger scaled companies looking to consistently access similar features at a higher volume/frequency, but for smaller teams with a limited budget, IBM's Cloud Functions are a competitive choice
Apache OpenWhisk has some limitations when it comes to scalability. Other platforms like Amazon Web Services might be better-suited for businesses looking to leverage schedules or sources to launch events, but IBM's Cloud Functions are still great for smaller companies looking for similar features at a more competitive price point.
