Oracle Autonomous Mobile Cloud Enterprise Review

It allows developing one code base for both Android and iOS platforms.

What is most valuable?

Oracle MAF allows deployment of a mobile app to both Android and iOS. It's one code base for both platforms.

How has it helped my organization?

It actually simplifies the development. For both platforms, we use one programming language, which is Java. It is easier for a developer to develop an app from scratch; it's pretty easy.

What needs improvement?

One of the features that would interest me would be mobile app analytics, which would allow us to track mobile app usage.

I think they need to invest more into the functionality of this framework. That's one reason for my rating. Another reason is the performance. Unfortunately, it's still not the best.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's pretty stable. The problem is performance. Initial releases of Oracle MAF were really slow. They're getting better; they're working on the performance.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I don't think scalability actually applies.

How is customer service and technical support?

We've had a couple of SRs with Oracle, and they've been pretty helpful.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We didn’t really have any previous solution. We just started with this one.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is pretty straightforward; easy to install. Oracle MAF is just an extension for JDeveloper, so it’s pretty easy.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Actually, there are multiple approaches and possible solutions. One of them would be a web app, which would require us to have a separate server.

Oracle MAF was really straightforward. It allowed us to build a native app. We didn't have to add additional hardware. It was an easy choice.

When I’m choosing a vendor such as Oracle, the most important criteria for me is the name and the support.

What other advice do I have?

Go for it.
