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

Pros
Compression is a great feature, where one can really save a lot of storage.The most valuable feature is that you have the same familiar environment of an Oracle database but with the additional performance you get from this architecture.The technical support team are real professionals. I admire their technical skills and supports. Their supports are really admirable.Our machine is used for our internal development of Oracle-based solutions, PoC benchmarking, and training/familiarization.

The solution has functionality that makes it easy for end-users to readily extract data directly from Business Warehouse into Excel and carry on their analysis on their own.The warehouse is the solution's most valuable feature.The most valuable feature of this solution is the advanced structuring of data capabilities. You can get different structures of data to suit your needs.The key element in this solution is its rapid response. If you have a question about prices, buyers, customers, providers, or services, you need the answer in a minute or two. That's the key benefit for us that a solution like BW gives us.We are currently in a basic stage of analytics and the first goal we have is to make sure the numbers are correct. BW has some features that help you to build factors and ETL in such a way that it's easy to get to correct responses. That's the number one condition that you have to have in an analytic solution.

Cons
The technical support is in need of improvement.It's too expensive per terabyte. It's complex.We had issues with system restoration.We would like an option of a hardware-only support solution, but Oracle currently does not provide this.

More integration with Microsoft Office products (not just Excel) would be helpful.The solution could offer better connectivity with other databases.The advanced structuring can be complicated and the interface is not very intuitive.One of our requirements is the ability to easily get answers regarding trends and exceptions. In BW, it is not that easy to get such information. I expect better trend and exception detection, better pattern detection.You can start quickly but, when you have to get a little more detailed, when you have to change something, when you have to solve problems, it's not that easy. It's easy to start but evolving is not that easy.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Exadata is an expensive tool, but, considering the ROI, it's worth going for the solution.The price is very high.I did note that Oracle does tend to internally oversize things especially if they want to fill up a budget, and hence third-party oversight is essential.
