Head Database Administration at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

* High availability using real application clusters. * Disaster recovery using Oracle Data Guard. * Scalable storage using Automatic Storage Management. * Security is watertight. Database Vault is my favourite.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved my organisation with the stability of its systems. The team is well-versed with the management of Oracle more than any other database. It is flexible, scalable, and a true Enterprise RDBMS.

What needs improvement?

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.
