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

Pros
"The initial setup is reasonably straightforward. It's a handful of networks and a handful of computers."

"The deployment is most valuable feature.""Apart from the licensing, there's support from Oracle Cloud Platform which improved our day to day operations. Time is reduced. Based on this service, we are able to scale up dependent applications as quickly as we can.""I like that the program is flexible. I can use it to write Java scripts. I also like the website, because it constantly updates me on things, like artificial intelligence, and the latest technology. I read the articles, on the latest technology that programmers can use.""What I like most about Oracle Cloud Platform is the ease of getting data in and out of the cloud, and the affordable licensing.""In terms of features, upgradeability to the latest version of Oracle suites has been a good feature. All we have to do is just patching or an upgrade, it's pretty easy. Then, it gets regularly updated. That's what I like about it.""Technical support is good. We are partners with Oracle so we are always speaking with them.""I find the interface to be great.""Overall, there are some very good features on Oracle and it offers good customization capabilities."

Cons
"The biggest problem is that it's got a very archaean and complex security environment that has to be very carefully set up and is easy to break."

"The setup was not simple.""With the Oracle Cloud Platform, they have to give first some proper documentation with a step-by-step process. Then the customer is able to use it properly. Nowadays, the Oracle Cloud Platform requires lots of floor work.""There's one app I have to install on my device, the Articulate Player app. It's only available on Apple and Android, but it's not available for Windows. I can't run the program on my desktop, to use it to learn Java.""The technical support is really bad, because their reaction time is extremely slow.""The packaging part of the software needs improvement. It lacks customization abilities for users. Giving them VMs for machine learning or running their own programs like Azure and Amazon, for example. Things like scalability based on the requirement of the tools. Oracle still lacks these kinds of things. For example, if you need a VM from Oracle, you need to pay for a monthly fee. They started developing containership but it's still at the initial stage and it's still lacking. They also need to develop integration between packages.""The main issue for the clients is that they need to understand the credit payments because if it's a currency that's not dollars or euros, Oracle will always convert it into credits and that's not easy for the customer to understand at the beginning.""Technical support could be more responsive.""Technical support does not offer the best service and should be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's $60,000 to $70,000 a month to replace about $10,000 a month in data center costs."

"It's not that expensive. I think it's maybe half or one-fourth of our actual on-prem cost, especially in Oracle Data Integrator. It's pretty cheap. Maybe around $30,000 or $40,000 per month.""There is a subscription cost rather than licensing for this product."

Top Answer: The environment is super fast so you get all the underlying machines behind the data. It's a good processing machine, especially in the Generation Two Cloud.
Top Answer: We're looking at a pay-as-you-go option for licensing. Ultimately, we're likely to pay monthly. In terms of comparing the solution to Azure, the pricing is pretty competitive.
Top Answer: The Generation One Cloud doesn't have a great interface. We're using Generation Two and it's much better. We have not tried it yet, but Azure integration would help a lot. Nowadays, it's all about… more »
