Their Smart Scan feature is great for every banking environment and financial institutions willing to implement it.""The performance of the data is the most important part.""This product can noticeably enhance performance of contextual Oracle databases.""It has improved the performance, now we run with more performance cores with less CPU to attend all the database demands.

Cons
"The flexibility of this solution needs to be improved because you cannot make changes at every one of the different steps.""Functionality needs to be more up-to-date with competing products.""The pricing model needs to be improved.""Machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities need to be more friendly for beginning users.""I think the biggest problem with the product is that it does a data ingest model, which is very expensive.""Releases of new products and functionality is never accompanied by associated documentation, training and resources that adequately explain the release."

"It's too expensive per terabyte. It's complex.""The technical support is in need of improvement.""It would be good if Exadata made some new features available regarding data retrieval and speed capacity functions.""The management monitoring tools are quite important and an area that needs some improvement.""It is difficult to evaluate return-on-investment because of the way billing is handled for the product. This should be improved by oracle.""I believe Oracle must improve its procedure to support the clients. The customer Ready Service must provide more use cases and benchmarks of their infrastructure to support client design decisions. Oracle must audit their partners regularly to guarantee they provide quality service even after been passed on partnership examination.""There is room for improvement with the handling of the Temp IO, which is often used for JOIN statements.""There is a feature for security, but it is not included in the first purchase of this solution. That means if you need to increase the security, you need to buy the security feature which doesn't come by default on these solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The initial price is lower than Oracle, but extensive use of SQL may lead to a higher total cost of ownership.""Users have to pay extra for premium-level technical support.""We are currently paying $200,000 a year for all the different parts of the suite during an ingest model Microsoft now charges us $700,000 a year."

"Exadata is an expensive tool, but, considering the ROI, it's worth going for the solution.""Oracle is always costly but it's fine.""It is an expensive product and you pay more for certain performance enhancements.""All things considered, the price of this product is fairly high, as is always the case with Oracle.""I did note that Oracle does tend to internally oversize things especially if they want to fill up a budget, and hence third-party oversight is essential.""The licensing can be a bit expensive because you need to have certain tools enabled that require them."
