I really appreciate the performance of Oracle. When using AWR records you can really see where a problem is. You can get advice about which queries are the heaviest for the database. You also can see advice for indexes. If an index isn't used, then you can just remove it to improve performance. This is a really good feature. Also, the JDBC connection is quite good. Finally, the object types are really good, the types of tables you can use in PL/SQL are also really helpful.

There are a lot of bugs in the Oracle Database, and it would be better if the bugs would be solved more quickly than they are today.
In general, the support is not good since most of the time the person whom you are given to is not so professional.

Integration with big data would be helpful since we are planning to load a lot of big data.
A lot of features have bugs or choose the wrong way to process data.

Auditing could be improved, especially granular auditing. The unified audit trail in 12c is great, however its extraction in a highly busy environment is quite a challenge.
