Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful.""Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs.""The pricing of the solution is pretty good.""They seem to be more readily integrating with Azure, which is great.""I like having the ability to easily run Oracle Linux server instances and to deploy Oracle Middleware and WebLogic servers. Oracle's Infrastructure as a Service products are also very useful, and we're using those right now within Oracle OCI.""Just having the many options and features offered by the product through the cloud is a major benefit.""Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases."

"It's suitable for various sizes of companies. I have used it with big companies and with small ones as well.""The pre-delivered content from the SAP cloud platform is definitely a strength.""Scalability is one of the benefits that we have in using the product.""SAP is an excellent company with an excellent reputation, excellent products, and dedicated customer support.""SAP has provided very good support.""The most valuable feature is the data synchronization, or the push and pull of the data.""The most valuable feature is integration.""The ability to expand it whenever required has been great — it's very simple."

Cons
"In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence.""Specific to the Oracle Cloud; while they have been able to showcase inbuilt features for Oracle applications, what doesn't really come across clearly is what happens when you want to host, work with, or integrate with applications outside of the Oracle stack.""The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at.""Lacking in additional PaaS services.""The initial setup can be a bit complex.""I think that there could be a more user-friendly environment when it comes to the options that Oracle presents through the Oracle Cloud Platform.""The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options.""The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated."

"My impression of the stability is that it is not good. Almost every month there is something new and that makes us nervous about delivery.""The solution requires more flexibility overall.""I'd like to see more local integration.""The main problem is that there aren't any easy migrations from SAP PO to SAP CPI, so from process orchestration to cloud platform integration.""We need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this.""They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients""In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing.""Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "There is a subscription cost rather than licensing for this product."
  • "On a monthly basis, we pay around $2,500 for licensing fees, with no additional costs. We do pay extra licensing for other on-premises solutions, but these are not related to Oracle Cloud Platform."
  • "The price is fair, but we have to manage it to keep it low."

  • "SAP's pricing is usually high compared to the competition. But this is also justified because they hold their products and services to quite high standards."
  • "The pricing can be negotiated."
  • "The cost when it comes to monitoring can be difficult."
