Oracle Database Review

The most valuable feature is security.

Valuable Features

The most valuable feature is security; you do not lose information.

Improvements to My Organization

As a result of using the Oracle Database, users are confident that the information is correct. It doesn't get corrupted, it doesn't get lost, and you can always access it and find it. Before clients used the Database, they used spreadsheets and needed to do a lot of crosschecking between documents to see if operations were valid. After starting with the database and realizing that the information there is always correct, teams start to be more productive, since they don’t have to spend that time crosschecking.

Use of Solution

We've been using it for more than ten years and it really works well.

Stability Issues

It never crashes, so we can have it running for months. It's amazing for the customer because they don't even know it's running. After some time, they forget that there is a database behind them.

Scalability Issues

We have clients that started with one user and now are running up to 200 users. It’s the same version with bigger hardware. It’s amazing the way the database can scale.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Usually response is very good. We have had to escalate issues a few times, but normally it’s fixable.

Initial Setup

It doesn't matter which version you are using or how you deploy it. It will have the same scripts and the same configuration, regardless of size and complexity.

Other Solutions Considered

We have compared it with Microsoft and IBM, and this is a ten out of ten.
