Its price can be better. It is a bit crazy, and its licensing is very difficult to understand. I would rate it one out of five in terms of pricing. There don't seem to be any additional costs.

I think that the price for one CPU with a computer is about $17,000. A small solution probably needs at least four CPUs and up to eight. That will add up to $68,000 to $132,000. You can't go that much lower than that. If you are not using our product, you have to use Oracle Enterprise Manager and I think that's about $3,000 per CPU as well. Overall, you could be looking at up to $24,000 on top of the GoldenGate license. It's quite on the expensive side, but if you want that kind of monitoring, that's what you have to use.

We have an enterprise license for it. It might be for three years or so. I'm not aware of any additional costs to the standard licensing fee.

The cost of the solution is a bit high. It's higher than a lot of competitors.

In terms of price, as a client, I want always the cheaper price. But, in this case, we have a good deal with Oracle in terms of GoldenGate licenses. It's a lot of money but the business case is working for us. We need the information, and fast access to it, so we require an effective system. We already have one solution in place working, but it's a legacy system bases on web services and the operations costs are very expensice. We need to migrate asap to this new solution.

The pricing is done on a yearly basis. They have additional packages for technical support.

The one feature that I think Oracle could perhaps consider is, at the moment, the Veridata option is an extra cost. Golden Gate is an expensive product. You pay a lot for the best. But not including the Veridata license to prove that everything is working correctly... The big improvement for me would be to have that license built in. That would take it to the next level. That would make it a much better product. You may want to look at buying term licenses if you've just got a single migration to do. In that situation, you might want a term license for perhaps a year to save a lot of money, rather than buying a perpetual license.

From my own experience, your question does not admit a "one size fits all" kind of answer, in fact, the answer should start with the (annoying): it depends. I will start with describing how I work with the kinds of tools that you mention: When I have to solve a new problem I start exploring the problem and prototyping the solution with Python and the usual toolset (NumPy, Pandas, SciPy, MathPlotLib, the works). If the problem is an ongoing concern, instead of a being a "just one shot" nuisance, once I have a stable prototype, but need a more robust and performant solution for the long run, I start a new project to design such a solution with .NET (typically, with C#), either on Windows or on Linux, depending on the circunstances of the problem. So if you face similar scenarios, that is, you need to have robust and performant solutions for the long run on many of your problems, my suggestion is to start getting friendly with a compiled language like C++ or C#, or some other, and follow an approach in the line of what I do. Kind regards, GEN
