"Oracle Database has high-level features that are very good."
"The most valuable features are stability, its backup and recovery, and its performance."
"As a database, the solution has been number one from the beginning."
"The solution has an endless capacity."
"The most valuable features of Oracle Database are the Data Guard because it does replication and the integration layer, such as GoldenGate."
"The feature that I worked with and that excited me the most is one that is not available in other databases, and it involves the use of Java Runtime."
"The Data Redaction feature is easy to use and we are quite happy with it."
"it is very easy to use the product."
"The most valuable feature is automation."
"It's very clever."
"Able to write queries more efficiently and the management of data has become better and easier."
"The additional value of having Java inside the Oracle database is all the security that is applied to an Oracle database will be enforced on Java's stored procedures as well."
"It has a programming language so anything that we require for Selenium is all available there."
"Technical support quality has dropped recently. They aren't as helpful or responsive as they used to be."
"The licensing model is complicated and could be improved."
"It's not very user-friendly, and it's a little complex. Another issue that I don't like is the licensing complexity."
"Oracle needs to improve its cluster technologies. They need to improve in the cluster technology using ARC due to the fact that sometimes people think that they have a redundant server when they are using ARC with the cluster and think that will increase the performance. In reality, if they are using ii with a big workload, sometimes the performance is not increasing, and can sometimes actually impacts it in such a way that there's some degradation in the performance."
"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."
"The queries performance could improve compared to other products."
"It should have flexible licensing across different platforms. It has got different licensing models for Intel Power and SPARC servers."
"The initial setup can be simplified."
"Needs improvement in consistency issues with respect to timeframes."
"In terms of improvement, I'd like an automation tool that is lower priced. The core prices are very high."
"The solution should continue to keep updating and improving the Java language."
"It'll be better if Oracle Java supports open source technologies, like Node.js."
"The biggest lesson that I have learned from using Oracle products is vendor lock-in."
