Oracle Database Review

The search and security features are valuable.

Valuable Features

The most valuable feature is the searching; it takes less time to search.

The security is also valuable.

Improvements to My Organization

Many organizations in my country use Oracle, so it's for us to communicate between our systems and other systems. We don't need, for example, some behind-the-scenes or in-between integration, or some other integration program.

Room for Improvement

I have a problem with Windows. It doesn't work so well; it's difficult. It's not as easy as SQL Server. For example, if I want to publish, or if I want my clients to work with Oracle database, I need to install Oracle clients. It's annoying. It's for security.

Sometimes I have difficulty with its Arabic support. It doesn't work so well in Arabic, in all of the versions we use. We need to go to the Analyze link to choose Arabic.

Stability Issues

It goes down sometimes; sometimes it is not as stable. It is 90% stable, 10% unstable.

Scalability Issues

It is scalable; it is better.

Customer Service and Technical Support

We have not used technical support.

Sometimes when we run into difficulties, I have found some answers by searching on the web.

Initial Setup

Other teams perform the initial setup. It goes smoothly but we do have problems, as I’ve mentioned; sometimes we have difficulty with Windows. We need to install it many times. Sometimes, we need to reformat the PCs, and reinstall Windows.

Other Advice

Determine how the Oracle database will be used in your organization. For example, if you want to build a new system, and you want your system to connect with another system, to another organization, you must use Oracle, because the other organization uses Oracle, and it is easy to communicate with it.
