Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

Cons
"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."

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."
