Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The autonomous database simplifies everything.""It is user-friendly. Its performance and security are also very good. There are 300 million records for our one-year data, and we can easily query this data. You can use Oracle Database as a source for easily integrating with different databases and applications. It supports Java platforms and other applications very well. It works with SAP products better than Microsoft SQL Server.""It is easy to set up on their engineered systems.""What I like most is the real application security.""The Data Redaction feature is easy to use and we are quite happy with it.""We find the solution to be stable.""It is stable, and its performance is good. Its interface is also fine.""Oracle Database has many useful functions and features suitable for big programs and complex business models."

"The application development is very user-friendly.""The most valuable feature is that Database-In-Memory is more consistent and faster than traditional databases as it requires fewer CPUs to process instructions.""The on-premise version is stable. We have different teams and resources for the server side, for admin, and for development. We can easily take care of all the services and applications.""Security is the most valuable feature."

Cons
"There are a lot of additional costs. That is the reason we are only leveraging for transactional related purposes, so that we do not spend so much on doing the same thing on Oracle. That is the reason we are looking for open source databases now.""There is a lot that can improve in Oracle Database. For example, it could be more user-friendly and should be easier to integrate into the cloud.""I have been looking for a virtualization database engine from Oracle. They have third-party vendors that can do it but if Oracle comes with its own virtual engine, it would be helpful. Additionally, the solution could be more user-friendly and improve the Transparent Data Encryption.""Lacks features that would improve database performance.""Oracle is a costly product, and it requires a lot of resources.""Oracle Database's migration capabilities could be improved because it's very difficult. So even if you migrate where you host your data, be it on Windows SQL Server, there is a problem because migrating the package is highly complex. The technical support could also be faster.""The software really doesn't need any improvement, but the way they do the billing should be improved. They charge by all the chips on the server, whether you use them or not. If you have a server that has 64 chips on it and you use one chip, they charge you for 64, and that's a terrible business model.""The security of the solution could be improved. It's an area that isn't as good as it could be."

More Oracle Database Cons →

"The query optimization and backup features should be added.""The pricing could be improved. It would ideal if it was more reasonable.""Lacks sufficient integration with other tools.""Oracle should include column store or advanced query optimization so a database can be optimized by enabling analytic queries to run faster."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is very expensive. We pay in dollars, so the inflation and conversion cost is also there for us. They charge on a yearly basis for the license."
  • "Its price is already low. Oracle has a competitive and cheaper price as compared to others. Oracle Cloud is cheaper than other clouds. The pricing is very competitive for Oracle Cloud to be in the market. Their pricing makes customers interested in using this product even though Oracle doesn't have a local data center at this moment."
  • "They are pricing themselves out of the market."
  • "It is expensive."
  • "It's expensive. I would say that it is more expensive than other competing products."
  • "It's not cheap, but sometimes, you get what you pay for."
  • "We pay a yearly maintenance fee."
  • "It would be a benefit if there were different pricing levels to help different size businesses."
