Abdel Moneim Emad says in an IBM Db2 review
Enterprise Solutions Architect at Intercom Enterprises
A) The command set is almost the same in Windows and AIX operating systems, which greatly minimize the administration efforts to manage DB2 in both environments. Needless to say that working with the banking sector (which is my default playground) I need the ability to deal with many operating systems. B) The ability to understand and interpret PL/SQL queries, with ease switching from Oracle to DB2. C) Stability, scalability and security with high performance. View full review »

reviewer280197 says in a SQL Server review
BI Solution Architect at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
The database engine within SQL Server 2014 is one of the most valuable components of the platform to me. The engine provides a solid and efficient database backend for any relational database requirement, performance is strong and there are options such as table, index partitioning and columnstore indexes that enhance the scalability of the platform. In addition to the database engine, I would also highlight the built-in integration services platform (SSIS) for ETL purposes as well as the Reporting and Analysis Services functionality (SSRS and SSAS respectively). One of the key features that I would use regularly to support the delivery of a Data Warehouse solution would be the Master Data Services (MDS). This is an extendable Master Data Management platform that works very well out-of-the- box. View full review »

Operations Engineering Manager at a consultancy with 10,001+ employees
* Security and Scalability * I have used Oracle technologies for last two decades apart from other similar vendors like MS SQL Server, IBM DB2, etc. * Power of Oracle combined with robust Unix platforms like Linux or AIX makes it powerful and secure as compared to MS SQL on Windows * IBM DB2 needs indepth technical expertise and lot of workarounds or automation to build a strong solution, MS SQL is on Windows and that makes it not the best choice View full review »

Osama Mustafa says in an Oracle Database review
Cloud Expert | DevOps | Oracle Consultant at a tech services company
* The most valuable feature for me is the pluggable database because it provides database consolidation and the solution for utilizing your resource. On the other hand, I find security products that are provided by Oracle very strong and not in comparison with any database vendor. * The encryption, database reduction, audit vault, database firewall: All of these products provide an extra layer of security when they are implemented in the right way. * Let's also mention real application cluster, and disaster recovery solution.

Reviewer342 says in an Oracle Database review
Lead Database Developer at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
* I really appreciate the performance of Oracle. * When using AWR records you can really see where a problem is. * You can get advice about which queries are the heaviest for the database. * You also can see advice for indexes. If an index isn't used, then you can remove it to improve performance. This is a really good feature. * The JDBC connection is also quite good. * The object types are really good, the types of tables you can use in PL/SQL are also really helpful. View full review »
