We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The feature I find most valuable about this solution is the reliability."
"This solution has the best performance, bar none."
"Oracle enables us to handle more than a million daily transactions."
"Oracle Database is fast and easy to use."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the cost optimizer and partition exchanges."
"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."
"Overall, from a technical perspective, the solution is very strong."
"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."
"It has a very huge bandwidth and data transfer."
"This solution is very fast."
"If you want to scale with new processes and new reports, that's fairly easy."
"The most value for us was in terms of using it to issue tenders online. We host our server, but it is open to the public, so clients who want to buy those tenders were able to go online, put their tender documents up, and we could evaluate them using SAP."
"Integration is the most valuable feature we use SAP HANA for."
"One feature I find very valuable, is the response time of the application on the database memory."
"The functionality is of the solution is very good."
"The data storage requirement is reduced from the original database to the HANA database."
"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. By making it less expensive, Oracle would be more competitive with other database vendors."
"We don't really find that any features are lacking."
"The solution is very expensive, however. The pricing depends on the number of users and many other factors that affect licensing."
"The inclusion of a well-performing Time Machine is vital."
"In terms of improvement, the speed is not as good as we thought it would be. That is why we are trying different solutions that will be built with different technologies."
"The interface is a little bit hard to customize. You almost have to consult the SAP original developer to change it."
"FI, or the financial module of SAP, has room for improvement. It has to have some better localization for the Middle East, especially in regards to taxes and the letter of credit cycle. I would like to see better localization from the HCM."
"If the developers were to enhance or improve the application logic while processing the transactions, that would be great."
"The challenge right now is all databases are on S4 HANA architecture. You're running it for HANA, but not all the functionalities are available. If they can speed up getting all the databases on S4 HANA that would help."
"I think that the pricing is high and it needs improvement."
"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."
"People who are technical will accept the cost, but financially they will assess whether this solution will bring them revenue or not. People often ask, how will I profit when the cost is so high?"
"It is expensive, which isn't a problem for us because SAP HANA is processing the data so fast."
"SAP HANA is an expensive product."
"It is expensive."
"Setup and licensing require planning and proper budgeting, as it is not cheap."
"The price of the solution could be reduced, it is expensive."
"The price of this product is good."
"We pay $200 on a monthly basis."
