    I'd argue that most citizen data scientists can do this sort of work without resorting to a GUI. Self Service Analytics is fine, but do you really want someone who doesn't understand the basics of data using it to create predictive models? Dangerous territory.

    ...and here's an example of just some of the problems we're hitting out in the field. None of the suggestions floated here fixed the problems I encountered, and they have not been fixed in the SQL Server vNext/2019 CTP 2.2 either: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/777bb5c5-5fdd-440c-8e61-a459ee9f76a9/sql-server-launchpad-service-wont-start?forum=SQLServer2016Preview

    Quick update,

    We have been considering all of the risks and investigating the steps required to ensure we implement this feature with high positive impact and low to no negative impact.

    After this investigation we have decided we will enable Pay-As-You-Go customers the option to configure a spending limit on a Pay-As-You-Go subscription, with appropriate safeguards and measures to prevent both service abuse and production service failure.

    We have not yet finished determining the details of what this feature will look like, nor do we have a timeline for release, but we have heard your voices and have added this feature to our backlog.

    Thanks for your continued feedback,

    -Adam (Azure Billing Team)

    It's THE main reason I won't use or recommend Azure.
    Please address this, it's a basic business issue that's losing you potential customers.
