Cons
"I would like to see better integration with Active Directory, because we have had problems, and we still do.""The initial setup process needs improvement. When you're moving to the cloud it takes a bit of time. It would be great if they could implement something that would make it faster.""It would be of interest to improve things like the web service integration and availability in terms of being easy to create internal web services in the database.""This is a young product in transition to the cloud and it needs more work before it is both settled as a product and competitive in the market.""It's pay as you go, so you never know what your bill is going to be beforehand, and that's scary for customers. If you have someone who makes a mistake and the program's a loop that is running all night, you could receive a very expensive bill.""With respect to what needs to be improved, concurrent connectivity has some limitations.""I'm not entirely happy with the billing model. I'm not entirely happy with how the enterprise services are pretty expensive, but that's about it.""The configuration for things like high-availability could be more user-friendly for non-technical users."

"An improvement for us would be the inclusion of support for an internal IP, so we could use it directly with the VCN in Oracle Cloud.""I would like to see Application Express and Oracle R Enterprise fully supported, and I would like to see Oracle Data Mining supported as a front end.""I would like to see an on-premise solution in the future.""Sometimes the solution works differently between the cloud and on-premises. It needs to be more consistent and predictable.""One of the major problem is creating custom tablespace. The ADB serverless option doesn't support custom tablespace creation, which could cause issues during on-premise database migration that requires specifically named tablespace. There should be an option to create customized tablespace.""Ease of connectivity could be improved."
