Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Azure

We are currently using Microsoft Azure across the whole organization. However department by department are choosing what functions to utilize or not. Some of the main functions we are using are Dev Ops for code storage and continuous integration, Power BI, Data Lake and reporting functions, SQL, IIS, App services and more are also in use across the organization

Pros

  • Wealth of white papers and documents for support
  • Every function or process you could need is there
  • frequent upgrades and updates to fix any issues

Cons

  • Sometimes its a bit overwhelming as to the volume of functions
  • The layout could be more intuitive
  • While there are a lot of support docs it could be laid out a bit better to help you get where you need to go
  • For any applications that we have running in the Azure space the ROI has been though the roof
  • We have decommissioned numerous physical servers saving hard dollars each year
  • In Addition to the hard dollars the soft dollar ROI has been fantastic. We can run deployments and analytics at anytime matching the speed of our clients
A few years ago we were a fairly large AWS shop. At a specific point the decision was made to go to Azure and we have been very happy with the outcome. Azure works better, integrates better, has better support and is cheaper that What we had with AWS. Simply put Azure is the clear winner.
We are currently moving all of our custom code and deployments over. For any new projects it has been seamless and allows us to be super responsive to our business needs. We are also migrating our legacy applications over as well, but this has been more time consuming as each app seems to need something custom. Some type of migration tool would be nice. Over all we are extremely pleased with the ease of use once set up
