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

This solution has a well-known procedure for troubleshooting and tuning the performance, providing for smooth operation.You can put data together from a few databases into one database or the other way, from one database into several. It transforms data in real-time.It allows us to migrate from one system to another, from one server to another, with no downtime, no outage. We can get the data synchronized with multiple databases and then switch the connectivity across to the new servers.It's very simple to configure, it's very simple to implement. In addition, the ability it has to capture data and transmit it with incredible speed is better than any of the product out there. It's extremely powerful.It scales well. You can either have it working in with the databases, or you can move it outside. It's got the ability to parallelize up, so you can certainly extract and replay the data from your databases in parallel. So it does have horizontal scalability. That is probably one of its stronger features, the ability just to automatically parallelize the replay and playing of data to allow to scale to large volumes.

The core replication and its performance. Performance is crucial, and SharePlex is by far the fastest. The way it handles replication to multiple targets along with basic filtering, as well as from multiple sources to a single target, is very efficient.

Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner.It's stable but you have to know how to maintain it. That's why it's not 10 out of 10 for me. There are some bugs, there are some issues here and there. All of a sudden your process is not working and you have to figure out why, and sometimes it's not so clear.

For its function in relation to replication (i.e. filtering), I'd give it a six or seven out of 10. GoldenGate has much more functionality by comparison.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing model should be improved to be more cost-effective for the end users.The one feature that I think Oracle could perhaps consider is, at the moment, the Veridata option is an extra cost. Golden Gate is an expensive product. You pay a lot for the best. But not including the Veridata license to prove that everything is working correctly... The big improvement for me would be to have that license built in. That would take it to the next level. That would make it a much better product. You may want to look at buying term licenses if you've just got a single migration to do. In that situation, you might want a term license for perhaps a year to save a lot of money, rather than buying a perpetual license.

i think it depends on what you want from technology.
i prefer, Oracle GoldenGate because of its incredible speed for data ingestion or data transmit. in other words, ETL tasks and real time tasks are performed in an efficient manner by Oracle GoldenGate. however, whenever i deal with BI or analytic tasks, i prefer Quest SharePlex.

I would recommend StreamSets, it is OpenSource, far more cost effective, extremely easy to use and when our client tested it against Oracle, StreamSets out performed Oracle.....
