What is most valuable?

I signed with Oracle to use GoldenGate for this project five months ago. I needed two or three months just to explore GoldenGate to get to know it and the features. There are many awesome features in GoldenGate and from what I see in the… more»

What needs improvement?

I use an on-premises installation of GoldenGate — a standard GoldenGate installation — to do our test deployment for our projects. Part of the Oracle solution that needs some improvement is the ability to test features extensively before… more»

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

The pricing is done on a yearly basis. They have additional packages for technical support.

What other advice do I have?

My opinion of GoldenGate is that it is an improvement over earlier Oracle products. I think that the interface for GoldenGate is very user-friendly. I recommend that people support the use of Oracle GoldenGate and have made this opinion… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have had the opportunity to use many products working for 18 years with databases. The list would be long if I tried to name the other products that I worked with. For this project, I suggested directly going to use Oracle products to… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the CDC (Changed Data Capture), which captures only the changes that are made to the data. This has the lowest load on the production… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Using this solution has improved both the speed and efficiency of the data replication process. Prior to this, I used packages with merge functionality for replication… more»

What needs improvement?

I find the user interface to be difficult for non-technical people. It was suggested to me that I use the command prompt, which is fine for me because I am a technical… more»

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

We do like the price of this solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this solution, we had a package that used an SQL process. It had come from Oracle Scheduler. We switched because it negatively impacted our production database… more»

What other advice do I have?

This solution is priced well, is fast, and doesn't have any impact on our production database. I would rate this solution and eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options when we chose this solution, although I am now considering other tools.

What is most valuable?

It's the simplicity. It's very simple to configure, it's very simple to implement. In addition, the ability it has to capture data and transmit it with incredible speed is better than any of the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It allows us to migrate from one system to another, from one server to another, with no downtime, no outage. We can get the data synchronized with multiple databases and then switch the connectivity… more»

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

The one feature that I think Oracle could perhaps consider is, at the moment, the Veridata option is an extra cost. Golden Gate is an expensive product. You pay a lot for the best. But not including… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This is a new solution for us. We did a proof of concept for all of the systems out there and discovered that, from a performance perspective, Golden Gate certainly met all of our requirements, which… more»

What other advice do I have?

You've got to balance the cost with your requirements. You may find that using something like Dbvisit Replicate is good enough for what you are doing, and it is substantially cheaper.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Other vendors that we were looking at were Dbvisit Replicate and Continuant, although the latter didn't have a product ready at that time (they do now). And there was also VMware Shareplex. Those are… more»

What is most valuable?

GoldenGate is a perfect product. It's very stable and can integrate heterogenic systems. I believe GoldenGate is one of the best Oracle products.

What needs improvement?

Monitoring needs improvement. Right now we lose a lot of of time and effort. To have a real monitoring system is the most important thing. If you replicate between systems 24/7, you need a strong monitoring tool. It's not taken from a lot of effort and a lot of support and involvement with Nexus adapters to plug into our Oracle enterprise manager. Scalability also needs to be addressed. There's… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution around eight or nine out of ten. The solution is extremely stable.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is data replication. When we are replicating data between similar databases then it is straightforward.

What needs improvement?

We are having a challenge in that we want to replicate different types of data, from one database to another, that have different types of elements. The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved. Technical support for this solution could… more»

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

There are a lot of tricks when it comes to licensing.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution for data replication, but there are some areas that need to be improved. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

You can put data together from a few databases into one database or the other way, from one database into several. It transforms data in real-time. In my experience, it is able to transform a large amount of data within a few seconds.

How has it helped my organization?

If you have one environment that is for some application and it has a lot of data, and you need this information not only for the application but also for a warehouse - to do some analytics later - you just transform all that data to the warehouse and then you can work with it.

What needs improvement?

I would like it to be simplified, easier to manage.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Oracle GoldenGate, of course.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is its compatibility with Oracle DB and Oracle products, generally, as our environment is really dependant on them. The flexibility for customization as well as the scalability of the tool is very important, as we expand our environment we can expand and scale up the tool on the go.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has a well-known procedure for troubleshooting and tuning the performance, providing for smooth operation. There is minimal effort required for maintenance, which would be performed by non-dedicated DBA.

What needs improvement?

The User Interface should be improved in newer versions, but without putting any restrictions on the customization capabilities. Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner. The licensing model should be improved to be more cost-effective for the end users.
