Oracle Database Review

Robust and accessible with helpful technical support

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily used for our accounting system.

What is most valuable?

The solution is the best in the world. It's robust and accessible. 

Oracle is the best on the market. They offer an exceptional product.

Technical support has been helpful so far.

What needs improvement?

The solution could be a bit cheaper. There are less expensive options.

The installation of the product could be designed to be simpler.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for about three years. It's been a while.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been great. We've been most satisfied with eh level of support we get. Everyone is helpful and responsive. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with the SQL Server, which is less expensive. It's also easier to set up and deploy,

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup isn't exactly straightforward. It's a bit more complex than, for example, an SQL Server, which is much more straightforward and simple to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

We used a specialist when deploying the solution originally.

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

The solution is more expensive than the SQL server. If a company needs a less expensive option, it shouldn't necessarily choose Oracle.

What other advice do I have?

I use multiple versions of the solution, including 12C and 11G.

I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

I'd recommend the solution to others. Oracle really is the best, even though the initial setup can be a bit difficult.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
