Most Helpful Review
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.
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.
Using the product, we make less mistakes, are more organized and faster than if we did it any another way.
Compared to other databases, Oracle Database is very simple to manage in terms of the database itself.
The most valuable features are the Shared-nothing architecture and data protection functionality.
The feature that we find most valuable is its ability to perform Massive Parallel Processing.
It handles large amounts of information with a linear performance increase, in relation to a HW investment.
It has a solid set of tools and consulting services.
It has massive parallel processing ability to do large amounts of concurrent querying.
It has given our business the ability to gain insights into the data and create data labs for analysis and PoCs.
Cuts time to process huge amounts of data with efficient analytical queries.
A conventional and easily defined way to build a data warehouse or a layer of data marts.
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.
In general, the support is not good since most of the time the person whom you are given to is not so professional.
Integration with big data would be helpful since we are planning to load a lot of big data.
The user interface needs to be improved.
I would like to see an improved Knowledge Base on the web.
It needs a teaching web site with more training on third-party tools used for BI.
We tried to use case Teradata for a data warehouse system, but we had some problems in relation to the Teradata system, CDC tools, and source databases. We were unable to transfer data from HPE Integrity mainframe to Teradata.
There is a need to improve performance in high transaction processes, as well as the reporting system.
Query language and its functionality are rather limited, compared to Oracle or even SQL Server. However, it is possible to perform any kind of logic in it (though some workarounds may be required).
Data ingestion is done via external utilities and not by the query language itself. It would be more convenient to have that functionality within its SQL dialect.
Needs compatibility with more Big Data platforms.
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.
The price needs to be more competitive as Hadoop, Redshift, Snowflake, etc are constantly making way into EDW space.
We are looking for a more flexible cost model for the next version that we use, whether it be cloud or on-premise.
Price is quite high, so if it is really possible to use other solutions (e.g. you do not have strict requirements for performance and huge data volumes), it might be better to look at alternatives from the RDBMS world.
Teradata is expensive but gives value for money, especially if you don't want to move your data to the cloud.
It is still a very expensive solution. While I very much like the pure technological supremacy of the software itself, I believe Teradata as a company needs to become more affordable. They are already losing the market to more flexible or cheaper competitors.
