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

In terms of price, as a client, I want always the cheaper price. But, in this case, we have a good deal with Oracle in terms of GoldenGate licenses. It's a lot of money… more »

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

At the scale where we are now, we have worked with Attunity. It is a similar CDC software data extraction. It's more straightforward and simple to configure, however, when… 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 »

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 »

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 »

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?

We like how in GoldenGate the heterogeneous database is supported. Sometimes the client actually needs a schedule and needs to ensure the state of databases for reporting purposes. With that in mind, we have been able to configure… more »

What needs improvement?

Right now, the solution is working quite well for us as it is. The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement.

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

The cost of the solution is a bit high. It's higher than a lot of competitors.

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

I've only ever worked with this solution. I haven't tried any similar solutions in the past.

What other advice do I have?

We're a reseller. We help our clients implement the solution. I'm not sure which version of the solution I'm using or if it's the most current. GoldenGate, right now, is a really fantastic solution. The price is high, but it's worth the… more »

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?

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 do you think of Oracle GoldenGate?

What is our primary use case?

I am part of a consulting firm and we build database solutions for our customers. Oracle GoldenGate is one of the products that we assist our clients with. It is primarily used to replicate data from the main database to a backup server.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is data replication capability.

What needs improvement?

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

For how long have I used the solution?

One of our clients began using Oracle GoldenGate in 2013 and a second client started with it in 2018.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Oracle GoldenGate is pretty much stable.

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.
