Oracle Database Room for Improvement

Maurice Aelion
Senior DBA & IT Consultant at MA Consulting
Oracle is going now to what we call autonomous databases. Personally, I don’t believe in autonomous databases that will manage themselves. It might be that in the cloud versions they actually have the ability of doing that for you, managing the infrastructure, fixing all the patches that you need, and so on. Still, the tuning business has a long way to go to be completely autonomous. There is still a need for a person to manage the database, especially the performance and tuning. It might be those future databases - not in the near future but in the distant future - will be autonomous completely. Oracle could be one of the first to incorporate that. View full review »

I would like to see an improvement in the upgrade process. Sometimes it's very complicated to upgrade from one version to another. We are currently running the Oracle version 12 and we may need to upgrade in the future. These upgrades are not very simple and should be made more user-friendly. If it could be more affordable, it would be a plus. Because the product is very expensive. View full review »

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. The bugs could be anything. They could be related to any problem. For example, we had a problem with the physical standby, and the bugs had already been there for a few years in the databases, but not solved in the newer versions. View full review »

Support and Patching. I found MS SQL Server support more helpful in many cases where in they internally rope in technology experts from different layers rather than pushing back on the clients, something Oracle can incorporate for sure. View full review »

* 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. Sometimes, we struggle with that. View full review »

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. View full review »
