We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"What I have found the most valuable about GoldenGate is that it does real-time and no-downtime migrations. Its migrations are fast. There are not many tools like it on the marketplace."
"The most valuable feature is data replication capability."
"The CDC feature is interesting."
"The most valuable feature is the ETL functionality."
"Data Services' table comparison mechanism is very powerful. It's pretty hard to find a similar feature in other solutions."
"The solution offers very good integration capabilities."
"The reporting on the data, even from third-party software, is very good."
"Its integration capabilities and the data migration capabilities are the most valuable. It is very good for SAP and non-SAP tools. It has very good integration with SAP, but it also has the capabilities to connect to other systems. We find it very helpful and stable."
"The most valuable feature is the logging capability."
"The maintenance of data services is the solution's most valuable feature."
"I would like to see the interface more graphical and easier to use."
"The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."
"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 problem with GoldenGate is it is very complex to use. You need heavyweight skills to use it."
"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 should offer more machine learning and automation."
"The interface is not quite user-friendly and is in need of improvement."
"There should be some kind of enhancement that can be done on the admin side of certain sites where we can assign the roles and responsibilities. We should be able to control who is using the tool and how."
"Source code control is another headache. When your source code base gets too large, managing the source code becomes cumbersome."
"The skillset of data engineers matters a bit to use all the functionality of this solution. Otherwise, the delivery speed won't be faster."
"It's an ETL that is very good with relational databases but not as good with files and semi-structured files."
"The pricing of the solution should be improved."
"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."
"The price is very reasonable."
"Its pricing is as per the enterprise agreement and not a concern for us."
