We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

"The most valuable feature is that it's robust.""The processes are the most valuable aspect of this solution.""Out of the box, this solution has a lot of standard features.""From an ERP point of view and a functionality point of view, it works very well. The benefits are in that of financial costing and material management.""The solution is easier to maintain than traditional SAP products.""The most valuable feature is the dashboard.""It can calculate data in detail. Before we could not calculate financial documents and accountant documents in detail, we could not do it at a document level but now we can. This is the most important feature. It also has predictive analysis memory.""The most valuable aspect of this solution is that the infrastructure is easy to understand."

Cons
"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 cannot integrate it with my other tools. It's not possible to do something in the predictive analysis. Mobile reporting is also not available.""Connecting multiple sources is a challenge because you have to go through a lot of different setups.""In the next release, I would like to see their BI component introduced with a mobile version, as it is not currently present.""The solution does occasionally get a few bugs, but this is typical for any product.""The dashboard should be simplified and made easier for exploration and decision making.""Not a ten because it's expensive and its ecosystem is not very open.""Pricing would be a good improvement. A lot of customers think that it's very expensive and especially support is very expensive.""It takes too long to escalate problems from the first level of support."
