Quotes From Members

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."

"We chose Greenplum because of the architecture in terms of clustering databases and being able to have, or at least utilize the resources that are sitting on a database.""Scalability is simple because it's an MPP database. If you need more processing power or you need more storage, you just add a few more nodes in the cluster. It works on common commodity hardware. You can use any type of server. You don't need to have proprietary hardware. It's fairly flexible.""The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling.""Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture.""The parallel load features mean that Greenplum is capable of high-volume data loading in parallel to all of the cluster segments, which is really valuable."

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."

"The installation is difficult and should be made easier.""Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc.""I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement.""Initial setup is a little complex. It took around two weeks to deploy.""The initial setup is somewhat complex and the out-of-the-box configuration requires optimization."
