The availability of the solution needs improvement.I think that this is a good product but I think that the cloud environment could be improved. I think that the future is in the utilization of the product in a product as a service way which is something that is lacking at this moment.Some things are very difficult to do, so the interface and usage could be more intuitive for those.It should be able to serve more concurrent requests like Oracle. Oracle has more powerful stability, availability, and real-time serving.They should make the solution more lightweight and not bundle everything into a single product.In the next release of this solution, I would like to see support for the Arabic language.The footprint could be reduced so that we can use a smaller virtual machine to run the application. We could also use more scripts. I would like this solution to be more script oriented, rather than GUI oriented.

Lacking a solution for smaller applications.There are sometimes issues with clusters.Support could be better. The expertise when we have some Oracle WebLogic issues and challenges is not there. The issues are not being addressed in time. This really needs to be improved going forward.I would like to see the licensing policy simplified.Sometimes there are issues when we work on a VM because people use it to put all of their reports on it at the same time. Then I have to restart and rebuild the machine.The restart capability needs to be improved because it takes us 15 minutes to restart any application.I think the support could be much better.The solution needs to share more information in terms of training. There needs to be more documentation involved to help those who are completely new to the product.
