What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is how evolved the solution is right now. It's been around for a while, and I think it's been servicing a lot of different use cases. I think it's really stabilized, evolved, and you can actually put it to use in... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has definitely improved the way my organization functions. It's our database management tool. We have a lot of sensitive information. Different business verticals have a lot of sensitive information that they want to reliably preserve... more»

What needs improvement?

I’d like to see them include a certain amount of intuitiveness in the optimization of the queries, and the algorithms for that could be better. There's still room for improvement in those areas. One of the things that is also mentioned about... more»

What is most valuable?

If you remember the old Saturday Night Live skit by the baseball player, Oracle's been very, very good to me. I chose to work with databases and specifically Oracle right out of college, the 80s. It was a right career decision. It took me... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Right now, one of the things I've been using a lot of is the In-Memory column store, which is a new Oracle 12c feature and it's gotten a lot of press. It's a great feature. If you remember a few years ago, Vertica and some other column... more»

What needs improvement?

I know that a lot of people like Oracle Enterprise Manager and it's capable and it's great, but for a lot of tasks it's overkill. They came out with this new tool in 12, the OEM Express. I would like to see that tool persist. Oracle does on... more»

What is most valuable?

So what happened is that today IT is facing a lot of challenges, because the data has grown so fast. They have to find a way to manage the cost, the performance, and the capacity. So that's why we have this strategy called information management: a strategy to manage this data within a reasonable cost. Oracle 12C introduced these two new features, called ADO,... more»

What needs improvement?

So this is a very good tool, but I would like to add some more features. One thing I would think about is that, the database lets me write some new rules. Right now, the data moving is mainly based on how much this tier one storage is full. Like, if 80 percent of full? Then it starts moving the data. What I really want is, based on how much the data has been... more»

What is most valuable?

I'm going to be discussing the enhancements to the PL/SQL language in what I'm going to call the bad old days, what we did was we put all of our application code and all of our application objects into one schema. What happened when you would... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest benefit is you're closing holes to SQL injection bugs. If I have a program, say program unit A has a PL/SQL injection bug, and you haven't implemented this, if I can inject into A, I can get to the sensitive information. But now... more»

What needs improvement?

In the next release, I'd like to see the ability to shred ghost data. I'd like to see the ability to when you run a data pump export of encrypted data and you did not specify encrypted in the command line, the data will be saved unencrypted... more»

What is most valuable?

Oracle Database has had a multiple-concurrent-user control system from the very beginning. Most enterprise database solutions have recently become aware of this. Oracle's approach was the true approach to isolate users. Databases have some... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have the opportunity to easily open service requests and get answers from the professional Oracle teams. We have the advanced customer support team in Turkey. If there is a problem, it is easily and elegantly solved. It adds value; we... more»

What needs improvement?

We have not been using the new release yet, we are running on 11g. We haven’t had much opportunity to deeply examine 12c yet. See my comments in the initial setup section.
