We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The deployment of our solution across a number of servers using Ingres .NET has meant that we can protect the database server behind a highly secure firewall and deploy the front end solutions on a normal web server."
"The most valuable feature is the performance."
"The Oracle database is able to get the data, process it, and return it to the company's CEO's and CFO's within a single day, and thus they are able to find out yesterday's P and L by today. It has drastically reduced the amount and time of processing from seven days to one day."
"If the database goes down on one of the servers, the load is automatically shifted to another server. You can troubleshoot the one that is down without affecting uptime."
"The solution is simple to use and easy to maintain."
"The solution is pretty automated, which takes out the possibility of human error."
"The database is solid."
"The ability to reset the log file without stopping the DBMS would be helpful for us."
"Virtualization needs improvement. It's not easy to back up the virtual machines in the Oracle VM architecture. I would also like to see native support for Veeam Backup Software."
"Oracle could improve its capacity for built-in visualization."
"In terms of what can be be improved, I'd say Artificial Intelligence, AI. It would be really helpful if AI was incorporated within the solution."
"The product is quite complex to set up, initially. It would be ideal if it was simpler."
"We would like the ability to add more storage without having to upgrade to Oracle Exadata."
"If we were able to use Oracle Database to create mobile apps, that would be great. I don't know multiple languages, like Java, etc. I need to learn a separate language, right now in order to do this."
"The price should be lower."
