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.It's very simple to configure, it's very simple to implement. In addition, the ability it has to capture data and transmit it with incredible speed is better than any of the product out there. It's extremely powerful.

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
Information Not Available
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.
