We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The features that I have found most valuable are the ease of configuration and the easy discovery of the environment."
"The availability performance matrix and the reporting capabilities are the solution's most valuable features."
"Step-by-step documentation that clarifies the implementation procedure."
"Good for managing and administering the infrastructure."
"The deployment and asset management features are the most valuable. These are the product's main features."
"The solution is easily available. That's its most valuable aspect."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the option to design, and the development can happen at the same time."
"The ability to stand up a highly available SOA Suite, which has full DR capabilities, in a remote center and synchronize the databases using Data Guard."
"We were able to scale out using multiple application and web servers balanced by hardware load balancers and Weblogic clustering."
"In case there is something that doesn't work out of the box, you have the flexibility to customize it."
"They should have some customized solutions or internal development, then maybe it could be easier to use different solutions or some self-developed solution."
"The solution's dashboard needs improvement."
"Implementation and integration in the case of multi-tenant environments needs improvement."
"Could be more user friendly."
"We have some bugs but it's stable. It doesn't break every day. It works. Like other applications, it has a lot of bugs but they're manageable."
"The multi-tenancy support needs to be improved. We need to have the ability to manage several different environments from one central point of administration."
"If the disk space expansion can be made more flexible, not requiring a database restart, it would be a major benefit."
"Various parts of SOA, BPEL, and so on, each have their own consoles which need to be accessed individually with different logins. It would be better from an admin perspective if all the consoles were accessible via a single login."
"They supply lots of documentation but finding what we need is challenging at times."
"This product is WebLogic based, hence it can be both resource hungry as well as expensive from a licensing point of view."
Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
