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

Pros
From a database product perspective, I would say, they're good in what they provide. There's not much concern.The reliability is the solution's most valuable feature. We've had great success with the solution.We find technical support to be very responsive. They briefly describe everything on phone and we handle the operations. I'd say we've been more than satisfied with their level of service. They're quite helpful and knowledgeable.Overall, from a technical perspective, the solution is very strong.I've never faced any stability issues with the product. I don't recall any bugs, glitches, or crashes. I'd say it's fairly stable and shouldn't cause anyone issues in that regard.The most valuable features of this solution are the cost optimizer and partition exchanges.Oracle Database is fast and easy to use.Oracle enables us to handle more than a million daily transactions.

Cons
If their database encryption features could come in bytes, that would be a major improvement. They should bring the encryption model to their standard databases as well.The main thing we find could use improvement is the licensing costs. It is quite expensive relative to other database vendors. Cost always comes up as an issue for us as we consider upgrade paths. It's not as easy as we would like it to be.We don't really find that any features are lacking.The database environment needs to be cheaper. By making it less expensive, Oracle would be more competitive with other database vendors.It could be slightly more intuitive, but other than that, we really like it as a solution.The cost of this solution needs to be improved.Cheap and easy solutions for startups need to be made available.The price tag is very high and most cannot afford it.

We're actually going through licensing issues and are looking to perhaps changing to another solution, something that is perhaps open-source.

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.It is an excellent product, as long as the organization can afford the price tag.
