We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I am very satisfied with the customer service/technical support."
"The most valuable features are the performance and usability."
"The most valuable feature for me is querying."
"One of the most important features is the ease of using MS SQL."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is performance."
"The data transmissions between the data models is the most valuable feature."
"The most valuable feature is the business intelligence (BI) part of it."
"We are able to monitor daily jobs, so if there is anything that needs to be done then we can do it."
"The performance of the system is the solution's most valuable aspect. In combination with the database, it gives perfect results. It's a better system than using other kinds of integrated systems. In general, the ODA control is much simpler to use and offers up the best performance."
"The solution is simple to use and easy to maintain."
"The Oracle database is able to get the data, process it, and return it to the company's CEO's and CFO's within a single day, and thus they are able to find out yesterday's P and L by today. It has drastically reduced the amount and time of processing from seven days to one day."
"The most valuable feature is the performance."
"The database is solid."
"The solution is pretty automated, which takes out the possibility of human error."
"In the future I would love to see a slightly better automation engine, just for the data integration layer, to make it slightly easier for end-users or junior developers to get involved in incremental updating."
"More tools to help designers should be included."
"I would like to see better visualization features."
"I think that the error messages need to be made more specific."
"The reporting for certain types of data needs to be improved."
"This solution would be improved with an option for in-memory data analysis."
"If the database is large with a lot of columns then it is difficult to clean the data."
"I would like the tool to support different operating systems."
"Technical support is not so great. It could be much better. The maintenance, for an enterprise system, isn't so great. It's also extremely expensive."
"If we were able to use Oracle Database to create mobile apps, that would be great. I don't know multiple languages, like Java, etc. I need to learn a separate language, right now in order to do this."
"In terms of what can be be improved, I'd say Artificial Intelligence, AI. It would be really helpful if AI was incorporated within the solution."
"We would like the ability to add more storage without having to upgrade to Oracle Exadata."
"Oracle could improve its capacity for built-in visualization."
"The product is quite complex to set up, initially. It would be ideal if it was simpler."
"I think the program is well-priced compared to the other offerings that are out in the market."
"Microsoft has an agreement with the government in our country, so our customers get their licensing costs from the Ministry. Whenever we work with any government, company, or government institute, which is mainly what we are doing, that license comes directly from the Ministry of Technology and Information."
"All the features that we use do not require any additional subscription or yearly fees."
The traditional structured relational data warehouse was never designed to handle the volume of exponential data growth, the variety of semi-structured and unstructured data types, or the velocity of real time data processing. Microsoft's SQL Server data warehouse solution integrates your traditional data warehouse with non-relational data and it can handle data of all sizes and types, with real-time performance.
The Oracle Database Appliance saves time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance, and support of database solutions for organizations of every size. Optimized for the world's most popular database--Oracle Database--it integrates software, compute, storage, and network resources to deliver database services for a wide range of custom and packaged online transaction processing (OLTP), in-memory database, and data warehousing applications. All hardware and software components are engineered and supported by Oracle, offering customers a reliable and secure system with built-in automation and best practices. In addition to accelerating the time to value when deploying database solutions, the Oracle Database Appliance offers flexible Oracle Database licensing options and reduces operational expenses associated with maintenance and support.
