Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"When we are replicating data between similar databases then it is straightforward.""The initial setup is straightforward. It doesn't take too much time or effort to implement the solution.""This is a powerful solution provided by one of the most respected companies in the computer industry.""The most valuable feature is data replication capability.""The CDC feature is interesting.""They've recently improved the ease of implementation.""GoldenGate can connect and collect data from multiple sources, such as SQL Server.""It moves the data as you set it up, and it works. I am also very impressed with its stability and scalability. It is not super feature-rich, but the new releases have more functionality. It recently had more native integrations with Oracle Database. If you are using it against an Oracle database, it has a lot more functionality."

"The core features of the solution we like are the reliability of the data transfer and the accuracy of data read and write. The stability of the solution is also excellent.""There are some capabilities within SharePlex where you can see how the data is migrating and if it still maintains good data integrity. For example, if there are some tables that get out of sync, there are ways to find them and fix the problem on the spot. Since these are very common issues, we can easily fix these types of problems using utilities, like compare and repair. So, if you find something is out of sync, then you can just repair that table. It basically syncs that table from source to target to see if there are any differences. It will then replicate those differences to the target.""Because of the volume of the transactions, we heavily use a feature that allows SharePlex to replicate thousands of transactions. It's called PEP, Post Enhancement Performance, and that has helped us scale tremendously."

Cons
"The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved.""The solution, in general, should be easier to use, with less need to perform workarounds within the system.""Technical support for Oracle products needs to be more efficient (at least locally in Egypt).""It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure.""We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us.""The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement.""I would like to see the interface more graphical and easier to use.""Troubleshooting issues is not always the easiest. It should be easier to troubleshoot. Their support can also be improved. They don't read your problem statement and waste a lot of time. GoldenGate for big data is actually a separate license. It is sort of a separate product, but it might fall underneath your GoldenGate category. If we're talking about big data, its interaction with big data sources is poorly documented."

"The reporting features need improvement. It would be very good for users to have a clear understanding of the status of replication.""I don't know how easy it would be to change the architecture in an already implemented replication. For example, if we have a certain way of architecting for a particular database migration and want to change that during a period of time, is that an easy or difficult change? There was a need for us to change the architecture in-between the migration, but we didn't do it. We thought, "This is possibly complicated. Let's not change it in the middle because we were approaching our cutover date." That was one thing that we should have checked with support about for training.""I would like the solution to have some kind of machine learning and AI capabilities. Often, if we want to improve the performance of posting, we have to bump up a parameter. That means we need to stop the process, come up with a figure that we want to bump the parameter up to, and then start SharePlex. Machine learning and AI capabilities for these kinds of improvement would tremendously help boost productivity for us."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing is based on anual licensing with additional costs for support packages.""The price of this solution is good.""We have an enterprise license for it. It might be for three years or so. I'm not aware of any additional costs to the standard licensing fee."

"It is not as expensive as Oracle GoldenGate and has worked really well within our budgets.""It's really good value for the money. There are some things they could improve on, but in terms of the pricing, features, and support, as a holistic package, we are not thinking of anything else at this point in time."
