Oracle Cloud Platform Reviews

What is most valuable?In terms of features, upgradeability to the latest version of Oracle suites has been a good feature. All we have to do is just patching or an upgrade, it's pretty easy. Then, it gets regularly updated. That's what I like about it.
What needs improvement?The packaging part of the software needs improvement. It lacks customization abilities for users. Giving them VMs for machine learning or running their own programs like Azure and Amazon, for example. Things like scalability based on the… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?I don't have that much information about pricing because I'm not at that level to know. It's not that expensive. I think it's maybe half or one-fourth of our actual on-prem cost, especially in Oracle Data Integrator. It's pretty cheap… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I have not previously used another solution. This is the first one. That's why I mentioned a few times that I don't have a benchmark to actually compare Oracle with. When I compare it with Amazon or a similar product it's from the knowledge… more»
What other advice do I have?My advice would be, if you have enough to invest in Oracle, I would recommend going for it. If an organization has OBI, Oracle Business Intelligence reporting platform, which is quite mature, and they want to move into cloud, Oracle's a… more»

What is most valuable?I believe it's the platform as a service from Oracle that is the most valuable aspect. Normally, all the Oracle native workloads are the ones that are being pushed to the cloud.
What needs improvement?One of the main areas that might be improved is not the Oracle product itself, but more like the infrastructure as a service. Big Oracle clients will also have several workloads with Microsoft, SAP, and so on and that's forced the clients to have multi-cloud options because Oracle does not have yet have an all-inclusive offering like Google or Azure. The systems are all interconnected and we… more»
What other advice do I have?We have some customers with private cloud services where they own the machines. We also work with customers that utilize the public cloud from Oracle for deploying applications and databases. I would rate Oracle products overall at an eight out of ten but this product at a seven out of ten simply because of not being able to easily deploy to other technologies.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We're looking at a pay-as-you-go option for licensing. Ultimately, we're likely to pay monthly. In terms of comparing the solution to Azure, the pricing is pretty competitive.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I've personally worked on Amazon Cloud Services. I'm certified in it. We're currently in the evaluation stage of a few different products.
What other advice do I have?I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. We're new to the cloud, so we need more time to evaluate its capabilities.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We've been evaluating AWS, Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

Easy to get data in and out of the cloud but better tech support and documentation will make it more user-friendly
What is most valuable?What I like most about Oracle Cloud Platform is the ease of getting data in and out of the cloud and the affordable licensing.
How has it helped my organization?Because of the fact that only our external customers make use of this solution, it hasn't really affected our organization.
What needs improvement?I would like to see better documentation to make it easier to use, as well as more standard components offered in this solution. New features are being regularly added to the oracle Cloud, and this is not always reflected in the… more»
What other advice do I have?My advice to others would be to take more time to deploy and to try and automate the deployment process. Due to the lack of proper documentation and complexity, as well as the poor tech support, I will rate this solution a six out of ten.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We also considered using Amazon and Azure.

What is most valuable?The database is very good. It provides exact data. Overall, there are some very good features on Oracle and it offers good customization capabilities.
What needs improvement?We've experienced some technical issues that have delayed projects. Bugs seem to pop up in new releases. Technical support does not offer the best service and should be improved.
What other advice do I have?We run different applications on the Oracle Cloud platform and use the cloud deployment model. We use the solution quite extensively on a daily basis. Oracle is a good option for enterprise-level companies, but for small and medium-sized businesses, I'd recommend another option. I'd rate the… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We're constantly looking for other options. Our team keeps an eye out for other solutions that could, for example, save us money.

What is most valuable?I like that the program is flexible. I can use it to write Java scripts. I also like the website because it constantly updates me on things, like artificial intelligence, and the latest technology. I read the articles, on the latest technology that programmers can use.
What needs improvement?There's one app I have to install on my device, the Articulate Player app. It's only available on Apple and Android, but it's not available for Windows. I can't run the program on my desktop, to use it to learn Java. If I want to learn Java, I have to install the program, but I would like it if was available for desktops. I use my PC to learn most of the time.
What other advice do I have?I would give the solution a rating of 8 out of 10. I would like it if maybe they could create a curriculum for Java, if they can integrate a curriculum for learning Java specifically, for the certification. The Oracle certification for Java. I'm using it to teach kids how to code.
