We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
I find the interface to be great.
Technical support is good. We are partners with Oracle so we are always speaking with them.
In terms of features, upgradeability to the latest version of Oracle suites has been a good feature. All we have to do is just patching or an upgrade, it's pretty easy. Then, it gets regularly updated. That's what I like about it.
What I like most about Oracle Cloud Platform is the ease of getting data in and out of the cloud, and the affordable licensing.
I like that the program is flexible. I can use it to write Java scripts. I also like the website, because it constantly updates me on things, like artificial intelligence, and the latest technology. I read the articles, on the latest technology that programmers can use.
Apart from the licensing, there's support from Oracle Cloud Platform which improved our day to day operations. Time is reduced. Based on this service, we are able to scale up dependent applications as quickly as we can.
The deployment is most valuable feature.
The most important features are the turnkey solutions offered by Oracle. These ease the administration of Oracle Databases.
The mapping transformation allows us to connect our on-premise ECC to the cloud system.
The integration flows are the most valuable feature of this solution.
To be able to define multiple sub accounts in order to accommodate and separate development, test, and productive environments.
Improved our speed to bring our mobile applications into productive use in a cost-effective way.
Technical support could be more responsive.
The main issue for the clients is that they need to understand the credit payments because if it's a currency that's not dollars or euros, Oracle will always convert it into credits and that's not easy for the customer to understand at the beginning.
The packaging part of the software needs improvement. It lacks customization abilities for users. Giving them VMs for machine learning or running their own programs like Azure and Amazon, for example. Things like scalability based on the requirement of the tools. Oracle still lacks these kinds of things. For example, if you need a VM from Oracle, you need to pay for a monthly fee. They started developing containership but it's still at the initial stage and it's still lacking. They also need to develop integration between packages.
The technical support is really bad, because their reaction time is extremely slow.
There's one app I have to install on my device, the Articulate Player app. It's only available on Apple and Android, but it's not available for Windows. I can't run the program on my desktop, to use it to learn Java.
With the Oracle Cloud Platform, they have to give first some proper documentation with a step-by-step process. Then the customer is able to use it properly. Nowadays, the Oracle Cloud Platform requires lots of floor work.
The setup was not simple.
Customer service could be improved.
Better connectivity to on-premise systems would help us to support older systems that are migrating to the cloud.
I would like for it to have integration to GitHub.
The product could be improved for consistent user interfaces.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It's not that expensive. I think it's maybe half or one-fourth of our actual on-prem cost, especially in Oracle Data Integrator. It's pretty cheap. Maybe around $30,000 or $40,000 per month.
Make sure you read the fine print.
My ROI has increased.
Licensing costs for this solution are based on the number of users and the bandwidth.
