It moves the data as you set it up, and it works. I am also very impressed with its stability and scalability. It is not super feature-rich, but the new releases have more functionality. It recently had more native integrations with Oracle Database. If you are using it against an Oracle database, it has a lot more functionality.

We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us.

The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement.

Troubleshooting issues is not always the easiest. It should be easier to troubleshoot. Their support can also be improved. They don't read your problem statement and waste a lot of time. GoldenGate for big data is actually a separate license. It is sort of a separate product, but it might fall underneath your GoldenGate category. If we're talking about big data, its interaction with big data sources is poorly documented.

The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved.

It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure.
