Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The user interface is very good. It makes me feel very comfortable when I am using the tool.""From what we have seen so far, the solution seems very stable.""Data Factory itself is great. It's pretty straightforward. You can easily add sources, join and lookup information, etc. The ease of use is pretty good.""Powerful but easy-to-use and intuitive.""It is a complete ETL Solution.""From my experience so far, the best feature is the ability to copy data to any environment. We have 100 connects and we can connect them to the system and copy the data from its respective system to any environment. That is the best feature.""It is easy to deploy workflows and schedule jobs.""On the tool itself, we've never experienced any bugs or glitches. There haven't been crashes. Stability has been good."

"The performance of the system is the solution's most valuable aspect. In combination with the database, it gives perfect results. It's a better system than using other kinds of integrated systems. In general, the ODA control is much simpler to use and offers up the best performance.""The solution is simple to use and easy to maintain.""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.""The most valuable feature is the performance.""The database is solid.""The solution is pretty automated, which takes out the possibility of human error.""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."

Cons
"The solution should offer better integration with Azure machine learning. We should be able to embed the cognitive services from Microsoft, for example as a web API. It should allow us to embed Azure machine learning in a more user-friendly way.""The solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI.""On the UI side, they could make it a little more intuitive in terms of how to add the radius components. Somebody who has been working with tools like Informatica or DataStage gets very used to how the UI looks and feels.""The product could provide more ways to import and export data.""The Microsoft documentation is too complicated.""The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved.""The setup and configuration process could be simplified.""If the user interface was more user friendly and there was better error feedback, it would be helpful."

"Technical support is not so great. It could be much better. The maintenance, for an enterprise system, isn't so great. It's also extremely expensive.""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.""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.""We would like the ability to add more storage without having to upgrade to Oracle Exadata.""Oracle could improve its capacity for built-in visualization.""The product is quite complex to set up, initially. It would be ideal if it was simpler.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"In terms of licensing costs, we pay somewhere around S14,000 USD per month. There are some additional costs. For example, we would have to subscribe to some additional computing and for elasticity, but they are minimal.""This is a cost-effective solution.""The price you pay is determined by how much you use it.""Understanding the pricing model for Data Factory is quite complex.""I would not say that this product is overly expensive.""The licensing is a pay-as-you-go model, where you pay for what you consume.""Our licensing fees are approximately 15,000 ($150 USD) per month.""The licensing cost is included in the Synapse."
