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

Pros
Oracle enables us to handle more than a million daily transactions.This solution has the best performance, bar none.The feature I find most valuable about this solution is the reliability.The most valuable features of this solution are the cost optimizer and partition exchanges.It has automatic memory management capability and large file capability.The features that we find most valuable are Data Pump, GoldenGate, and the RMAN (Recovery Manager).We use the relational databases for government contracts.I really appreciate the performance of Oracle. When using AWR records you can really see where a problem is. You can get advice about which queries are the heaviest for the database. You also can see advice for indexes. If an index isn't used, then you can just remove it to improve performance. This is a really good feature. Also, the JDBC connection is quite good. Finally, the object types are really good, the types of tables you can use in PL/SQL are also really helpful.

Maintaining databases is a valuable feature for us.The management and administration are the solution's most valuable features. It's very, very easy to have many databases under one major database that is controlling everything.The database becomes pluggable. Inside this container is called a pluggable database and each application contains this pluggable database inside Multitenant. We can then share resources like control files, memory, etc. This lets you stop and start each application without impacting the others. This resource sharing is the most valuable featureThe most valuable features are the speed and ease of use.

Cons
The price tag is very high and most cannot afford it.The documentation needs improvement because as it is now, providing support is a headache.The product is very expensive.The cost of this solution needs to be improved.The Oracle Database could improve on integration with other infrastructure systems like Active Directory.This product would be improved with Support Services for more production access.It is expensive.There are a lot of bugs in the Oracle Database, and it would be better if the bugs would be solved more quickly than they are today.

It would be beneficial to include this solution with Oracle Enterprise, but Oracle charges additional fees for it.In general, the pricing is expensive for this solution. It's one of the most expensive products.That said, Oracle in general doesn't invest in their UI for any of their applications. If we're talking about the dashboard or other user experience, there is room for improvement. I'm talking about on premises. The cloud version has started to improve.The user interface for this solution can be made better.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is an excellent product, as long as the organization can afford the price tag.The price is very expensive for the support.The main issue where I feel that Oracle still has a problem is with the licensing. Licensing is still expensive and the reason why today most startups use other, cheaper databases. Those other databases are much less sophisticated than Oracle.​The license cost need to be optimized. The licensing cost is very high compared to other RDBMS.Be prepared to pay for consulting services, and do not underestimate the time required to find and hire good quality database administrators.

For me, I will go with it if I have the budget. Some features are nicer than before, but at the end of the day, you always have a limited budget. I prefer to upgrade and get a specific hardware when possible. At the end, you will have to make a compromise. You will not get everything you would have liked to have.This solution is a little bit pricey.
