Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the option to design, and the development can happen at the same time.""The ability to stand up a highly available SOA Suite, which has full DR capabilities, in a remote center and synchronize the databases using Data Guard.""We were able to scale out using multiple application and web servers balanced by hardware load balancers and Weblogic clustering.""In case there is something that doesn't work out of the box, you have the flexibility to customize it."

"The feature that I have found to be the most valuable is the ease of deployment.""Scalability on the solution is great. It's very very easy to scale.""The solution is very scalable. It's easy to add processes even if you are new to the solution.""The program is scalable.""The most valuable feature is that it provides one place where you can control all of the services.""It integrates well with other solutions.""WebLogic adds a lot of value to business and investments.""The transaction handling of WebLogic and the way it is designed is excellent."

Cons
"If the disk space expansion can be made more flexible, not requiring a database restart, it would be a major benefit.""Various parts of SOA, BPEL, and so on, each have their own consoles which need to be accessed individually with different logins. It would be better from an admin perspective if all the consoles were accessible via a single login.""They supply lots of documentation but finding what we need is challenging at times."

"This solution would benefit from the inclusion of a ripple start function for clusters.""The licensing for the solution is pretty expensive. It may be the most expensive solution, if you were to compare it to the competition.""The solution needs to share more information in terms of training. There needs to be more documentation involved to help those who are completely new to the product.""I think the support could be much better.""The restart capability needs to be improved because it takes us 15 minutes to restart any application.""Sometimes there are issues when we work on a VM because people use it to put all of their reports on it at the same time. Then I have to restart and rebuild the machine.""I would like to see the licensing policy simplified.""Support could be better. The expertise when we have some Oracle WebLogic issues and challenges is not there. The issues are not being addressed in time. This really needs to be improved going forward."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This product is WebLogic based, hence it can be both resource hungry as well as expensive from a licensing point of view."

Overview

Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
