How Good/Bad Is The Ocularis (Formerly Onssi, Now Qognify) VMS Software Since Milestone Breakup?

How good/bad is the Ocularis (formerly OnSSI, now Qognify) VMS software since they stopped OEMing Milestone back in 2016? I don't have any first-hand experience with Ocularis since before the breakup.

I have a client that is running an older, out of date Ocularis system. They are adding a new building to their campus that will increase their camera count by about 50%. I'm debating sticking with Ocularis and updating the software at their older buildings or using this opportunity to switch to a different VMS.
