We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The security on the solution is very good."
"Oracle offers more of the basic functionality needs."
"Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is about as stable as the other CSPs, but Oracle Cloud is more common in Korea."
"The simple infrastructure of the service is very useful."
"Overall, there are some very good features on Oracle and it offers good customization capabilities."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the high level of performance for the databases."
"The environment is super fast so you get all the underlying machines behind the data. It's a good processing machine, especially in the Generation Two Cloud."
"I like having the ability to easily run Oracle Linux server instances and to deploy Oracle Middleware and WebLogic servers. Oracle's Infrastructure as a Service products are also very useful, and we're using those right now within Oracle OCI."
"SAP has provided very good support."
"The most valuable feature is integration."
"The most valuable feature is the data synchronization, or the push and pull of the data."
"One of the best features of this solution is that it is web-based and you can log in and work on it from anywhere."
"SAP is an excellent company with an excellent reputation, excellent products, and dedicated customer support."
"Scalability is one of the benefits that we have in using the product."
"Cloud Platform's stability is great."
"It's suitable for various sizes of companies. I have used it with big companies and with small ones as well."
"The scalability requires some improvement. This is one of the most important things they need to get better at."
"In a future release, they could improve by adding some form of machine learning and artificial intelligence."
"Technical support does not offer the best service and should be improved."
"The solution isn't very mature. The on-premises deployment has more features and the cloud needs to work to match those options."
"The solution requires tighter integration capabilities."
"The product could use some more development and maturity so it has more peripheral functionality already integrated."
"I think that there could be a more user-friendly environment when it comes to the options that Oracle presents through the Oracle Cloud Platform."
"I work with many clouds and I would say, in comparison, others have a better presentation of services and they have clearer steps in terms of implementation."
"I would like to see more and better support for data transformations."
"In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing."
"We need to connect our ERP solution via the VPN. We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this."
"Usability is a challenge most of the time and not being able to get all of the information."
"My impression of the stability is that it is not good. Almost every month there is something new and that makes us nervous about delivery."
"The solution requires more flexibility overall."
"I'd like to see more local integration."
"They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients"
"The price is fair, but we have to manage it to keep it low."
"There is a subscription cost rather than licensing for this product."
"On a monthly basis, we pay around $2,500 for licensing fees, with no additional costs. We do pay extra licensing for other on-premises solutions, but these are not related to Oracle Cloud Platform."
"The cost when it comes to monitoring can be difficult."
"The pricing can be negotiated."
"SAP's pricing is usually high compared to the competition. But this is also justified because they hold their products and services to quite high standards."
