Oracle Audit Vault Review
It provides reports that are directly related to the compliance issues.

Valuable Features

Audit reporting and its user-friendliness that is required by auditors are valuable features.

Improvements to My Organization

It provides reports that are directly related to the compliance issues, i.e., for example SOX Compliance.

Room for Improvement

Policy defining should be more user-friendly. It still should be implemented and handed over to the end users. This policy defining cannot be done by an end user. It should be implemented initially, by a person who knows the Audit Vault along with the implementing business organization and their audit requirements. There should be a system analysis carried out and then this should be implemented. If the Oracle Audit Vault can give the administration interface to the end user itself, then he/she could generate the reports that they need, just by creating the customized report formats.

Use of Solution

I have used this solution for three years.

Stability Issues

Some of the earlier versions have not matured enough.

Scalability Issues

There were no scalability issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The technical support is good. I would give them a 7 out of 10 rating because there is no as such major implementation help given by the Oracle Support. There are a few people to support the same.

Previous Solutions

It is easy to work with the Oracle ERP and Oracle Database.

Initial Setup

It is a little bit complex. The installation, implementation and policy defining should be done by experienced technical staff.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

You can use this as a good audit reporting tool and it is worth to use it as a high compliance risk tool.

Other Advice

The installation and configurations should be done by experienced technical people, so as to achieve project success.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are Oracle Partners.
