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

Pros
It is easy to deploy workflows and schedule jobs.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 a complete ETL Solution.Powerful but easy-to-use and intuitive.The most valuable features are data transformations.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.From what we have seen so far, the solution seems very stable.The user interface is very good. It makes me feel very comfortable when I am using the tool.

The most valuable feature is data replication capability.This is a powerful solution provided by one of the most respected companies in the computer industry.The initial setup is straightforward. It doesn't take too much time or effort to implement the solution.When we are replicating data between similar databases then it is straightforward.This solution provides us with real-time replication and it does not affect the performance of other operations, which is very important to us.This solution has a well-known procedure for troubleshooting and tuning the performance, providing for smooth operation.You can put data together from a few databases into one database or the other way, from one database into several. It transforms data in real-time.It allows us to migrate from one system to another, from one server to another, with no downtime, no outage. We can get the data synchronized with multiple databases and then switch the connectivity across to the new servers.

Cons
The setup and configuration process could be simplified.The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved.The Microsoft documentation is too complicated.The product could provide more ways to import and export data.The speed and performance need to be improved.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 solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI.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.

It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure.Technical support for Oracle products needs to be more efficient (at least locally in Egypt).The solution, in general, should be easier to use, with less need to perform workarounds within the system.The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved.I find the user interface to be difficult for non-technical people.Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner.It's stable but you have to know how to maintain it. That's why it's not 10 out of 10 for me. There are some bugs, there are some issues here and there. All of a sudden your process is not working and you have to figure out why, and sometimes it's not so clear.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This is a cost-effective solution.Our licensing fees are approximately 15,000 ($150 USD) per month.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.

The price of this solution is good.Pricing is based on anual licensing with additional costs for support packages.We do like the price of this solution.The licensing model should be improved to be more cost-effective for the end users.The one feature that I think Oracle could perhaps consider is, at the moment, the Veridata option is an extra cost. Golden Gate is an expensive product. You pay a lot for the best. But not including the Veridata license to prove that everything is working correctly... The big improvement for me would be to have that license built in. That would take it to the next level. That would make it a much better product. You may want to look at buying term licenses if you've just got a single migration to do. In that situation, you might want a term license for perhaps a year to save a lot of money, rather than buying a perpetual license.
