How has it helped my organization?

We tuned so much code recently by using all the techniques above and it is working fantastic.

What needs improvement?

The Oracle tuning advisor could have been available to Developers so that they can send the advises to DBA's.

For how long have I used the solution?

2 years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Nnope. It is usually we forget to mention the Schema names before the deployment and it fails when DBA's runs with Super user.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Some time in Last junuary we had an issue with when we upgrade the database and the queries are started running very slow and we have changed the way of running statistics with Oracle recommendations and it started running fine.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Nope not yet but we might have plans to move it to Cloud. we are not really sure. We have our own data center and we never had any problems with Scalability

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It is good and sometimes we don't get exact recommendations even though we give all details but it was satisfactory.

Technical Support:

it is good they are knowledgable enough to answer our questions.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We never used any other solutions before and we are only using Oracle form the beginning.

How was the initial setup?

Nope. it was quite easy.

What about the implementation team?

We have implemented through PWC. but it was pretty stable.

What was our ROI?

More performance techniques and latest updates that we are really existed about.

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

Pricing is fine because we are seeing an excellent results. we could have get the same things for lower prices but the Oracle service is really good.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes. 1. Performance, 2. Scalability 3. Cost

What other advice do I have?

Oracle solutions are excellent and evolves according to the customer needs. Whenever there is a bug we recommend to the customers directly so that they are aware of whats going on rather they find out them selves. This helps service improvement as well customer relations hips.
