Oracle Database Review

Feature rich, stability like a shield and installs fairly easy

What is most valuable?

I would refer to Oracle's solution like a shield, it is very stable and has many features.

What needs improvement?

They could improve on making changes to their software faster, they are a large company and sometimes changes are slow. Also, Oracle can improve themselves in the cloud for Microsoft Azure systems.

For how long have I used the solution?

I started using the solution 12 years ago.

How are customer service and technical support?

When we are not able to solve a problem, we immediately contacted Oracle support team to help us solve it. They normally respond in a timely manner.

How was the initial setup?

The installation can be easy. It depends on what you install. If you just install a database, it's easy but if you install some other programs it can be a little bit longer and difficult to install. 

What about the implementation team?

We have a team of approximately 10 technicians working on the deployment. Sometimes the deployment of the product can reach some barriers, not because of a fault of Oracle but sometimes the hardware systems being installed on are older and can cause some problems. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It would be a benefit if there were different pricing levels to help different size businesses. The product is a bit expensive compared to other competitors. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Oracle Database, I love Oracle. 

I rate Oracle Database a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
