It seems to work but the installation is a real pain

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using Oracle Database for years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It seems to work. But it could use some improvement in terms of operational stability.

How are customer service and support?

I've never had to contact Oracle support

How was the initial setup?

I can only remember that setting up Oracle Database was a pain because it uses Java.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The Oracle Database license is included with our SAP subscription.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Oracle Database six out of 10. I don't like it at all. We're only using it because it's bundled with SAP. I would not recommend it to others.

Good performance and interface

Pros and Cons

  • "I like the performance power and the interface of the solution."
  • "Problems can arise if there are too many requirements or a lot of details which must be applied to connect the software to the database."

What is most valuable?

I like the performance power and the interface of the solution. 

What needs improvement?

I encountered problems when developing solutions or when the developers needed to know or check many things to connect to the database. Problems can arise if there are too many requirements or a lot of details which must be applied to connect the software to the database. There may be a need to have the client in the host machine and have other files registered. Once the connection is made with the database the problem is resolved. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Oracle Database for six years.

What other advice do I have?

The solution is privately deployed and solely with on-premises products. 

I develop solutions. 

I rate Oracle Database as a nine out of ten.

Secure and easy to use, but the cloud-developer options need to be improved

Pros and Cons

  • "Oracle Database is fast and easy to use."
  • "Cheap and easy solutions for startups need to be made available."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is Oracle EBS using Oracle Database 8.

How has it helped my organization?

Oracle Database is the base of all local solutions in the company. Oracle Database is fast and easy to use. I have been using geospatial solutions for a long time, too.

This is the last solution before cloud and cloud developers no longer have knowledge about the Oracle database.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are Velocity, security, and compatibility.

What needs improvement?

Solutions for cloud developers are in need of improvement.

Cheap and easy solutions for startups need to be made available.

We would like to see Oracle Apex as an independent and paid solution.
