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.

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.

An additional feature I would you like to see included in the next release, is that it needs to be more cloud-friendly.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.

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.

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.
