We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Its security and reliability are most valuable.""The reliability is the solution's most valuable feature. We've had great success with the solution.""Scalability, reliability, and performance are what we are getting with this solution. It is highly scalable and has very good performance. It also has in-built monitoring and optimized optimizer. It is quite stable and secure. When it comes to integration, you can integrate it with other tools as well. However, we have been using Oracle Database within our own premises. So, it is kind of difficult for us to basically do a kind of integration with the outside software. We prefer to do things within our own premises.""From a database product perspective, I would say, they're good in what they provide. There's not much concern.""The concurrency, consistency, and security features are the most valuable. It is also a very robust solution.""The performance of the solution is impeccable.""It is a reliable database warehouse solution that is transparent to the end user.""The solution can scale well."

Cons
"It should have more monitoring features. There should be features to be able to analyze the performance with a query. In Microsoft SQL Server, when you are running any stored procedure, if you want to analyze the performance, you just run the query analyzer. You can easily find out that something is missing in a joint condition, or clustering needs to be added because of a delay. I can't find such features in Oracle Database. They should be added.""They should be putting more emphasis on the Windows platform. Usually, they run very well on the Linux platform, however, their performance on Windows is a little bit lower quality.""The pricing could be better.""The security of the solution could be improved. It's an area that isn't as good as it could be.""The monitoring system is not very user friendly and could include a graphic interface.""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.""Support is not available when one encounters problems.""There are a few errors for which Oracle doesn't provide detailed information. It doesn't clearly indicate the columns or lines for which we are getting an error. It would be better if they provide more detailed information for such errors."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Our licensing costs are between $40,000 and $50,000 per year. Those are the costs that cover maintenance and licensing."
  • "The pricing is something that Oracle should work on to make the product more affordable, especially to businesses in third-world countries."
  • "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."
