The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

I cannot imagine IT today without Oracle databases. Oracle has basically delivered their data revolution with relational databases and their constant development and innovation going into the cloud.

What needs improvement?

They are coming up with more improvements than we actually want. If you ask most of the customers, they are happy with what they had 10 or 20 years back. The company has a need to make more money or beat the competition, so they constantly come up with these new features. They say these are cool features to have, but I don’t think they are needs. We don't need... more»

What is most valuable?

The Oracle database is easier to program and manage, and is secure. It’s a stable, dependable product. It can handle any size database. Reliability is one of the key features necessary for a database product.

What needs improvement?

Oracle is a large company that is constantly purchasing other companies to add functionality. I think that if I want a new feature, Oracle will not listen to just me. They are marketing to a large market and not just myself. Oracle occupies the main space in the database market. Additionally, once we put data into Oracle, it's very hard to move it out to another... more»

What do you think of Oracle Database In-Memory?

Valuable Features Performance. That's probably the number one. When we use it for OLTP, which is the Online Transaction Processing, the response for the end-user is pretty fast, which is a good thing, especially if the user is looking at a website, the response time is really micro milliseconds as opposed to waiting a few seconds for that page to load. • Improvements to My Organization I think it still goes back to the user benefiting the most out of this, it's basically a good customer experience, the product. • Room for Improvement Nothing right now. • Stability Issues It is pretty stable. • Scalability Issues It scales really well. We had to scale it along with the rest of the ecosystem, not just this in particular, but the infrastructure as well. We had...
