Cons
"The Oracle Database could improve on integration with other infrastructure systems like Active Directory.""The product is very expensive.""The documentation needs improvement because as it is now, providing support is a headache.""The price tag is very high and most cannot afford it.""Cheap and easy solutions for startups need to be made available.""The cost of this solution needs to be improved.""It could be slightly more intuitive, but other than that, we really like it as a solution.""The database environment needs to be cheaper.

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Our licensing costs are between $40,000 and $50,000 per year. Those are the costs that cover maintenance and licensing.""The pricing is something that Oracle should work on to make the product more affordable, especially to businesses in third-world countries.""It is very expensive. We pay in dollars, so the inflation and conversion cost is also there for us. They charge on a yearly basis for the license.""Its price is already low. Oracle has a competitive and cheaper price as compared to others. Oracle Cloud is cheaper than other clouds. The pricing is very competitive for Oracle Cloud to be in the market. Their pricing makes customers interested in using this product even though Oracle doesn't have a local data center at this moment.""They are pricing themselves out of the market.""It is expensive.""It's expensive. I would say that it is more expensive than other competing products.""It's not cheap, but sometimes, you get what you pay for."
