Review of SAP
Jul 30 2019
What is most valuable?This solution is very fast.
What needs improvement?The backup solution and time machine should be more accurate, reliable, and comfortable to use. The inclusion of a well-performing Time Machine is vital. If the interface were more comfortable and easy to use then it would be excellent. Sometimes, an incorrect request is taken to production and it… more»
What other advice do I have?We do not use the HANA features, for example, embedded scripts. This is something that we may use in the future. My advice to anybody looking to implement a relational database is to use Oracle, rather than HANA. HANA consultants are very rare and therefore costly. My testing has also shown that… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I have more than nineteen years of experience with the Oracle database, from version 7.2 through to RAC. I know the administration, as well as backup and recovery very well. There are not many differences between Oracle and HANA. As an example, for transactional purposes, it is very similar to… more»
Review of Firebird
Dec 11 2019
What is most valuable?The solution is very useful for stock management. The solution has worked perfectly; I've never run into issues or had to reach out to technical support for troubleshooting.
What needs improvement?I've never had any issues with the solution, so I can't think of any improvements it would need. It would be interesting if they added functionality with redundancy, reputation, and variability.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The solution is freeware, so it doesn't cost anything to use it.
What other advice do I have?I use this solution specifically for one database. It's a good product for little databases. We only use this solution for one project. Mostly, we're focused on MariaDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. I'd rate the solution five or six out of ten… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?I didn't evaluate other options. I found a recommendation for this solution online and decided to implement it.
Review of IBM

What is most valuable?The scalability and availability of this solution are the most valuable features. It is a very stable product.

I would advise that if you are looking to install it, you should have internal competence and internal skill, don't only use external support that is provided by IBM. You should have internal knowledge and competency for Db2… more»
Review of MariaDB
Jan 08 2020
What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is that it is a database.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Previously we worked with MySQL.
What other advice do I have?I am an IT engineer. I am always researching the best solutions for our clients. I work mainly with open-source solutions, such as Liferay and WordPress. Before this product was called MariaDB it was called MySQL. I would say that for most… more»
