What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found to be the most valuable is the ease of deployment. In the beginning, you do tend to struggle a bit, but once it's deployed, then everything falls into place and maintaining it is quite simple.

What needs improvement?

It is difficult to say which features can be improved at the moment, as we are not working with the most current version and I am not aware of the features offered in the new version. Once we catch up and move on to version 12C, we need to see what can be migrated to the cloud. It might not be… more»

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

Previously, we used the IBM product called WebSphere. WebSphere and WebLogic are both very similar. They have the same purpose, the same end. I liked the way WebLogic is compartmentalized in the server where you can go and find the configurations, and see it on a file. It's fairly file-based, the… more»

What other advice do I have?

I am a subcontractor to Vodacom, and the company I work for is a vendor, and they are an approved vendor with Oracle. It is difficult to offer advice because every scenario is different, but I would suggest that you use the available expertise. There is a lot of expertise, don't try to do it all… more»

What is most valuable?

Ease of scalability through both asymmetric and symmetric clustering; ease of integration with existing and potential future Oracle product technologies; leverages many… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Provides a uniform technology platform between multiple application installations, whether Enterprise Resource Planning or Customer Relationship Management (ERP/CRM) based… more»

What needs improvement?

Cloning and replication (detailed below) could be much more flexible and standardized. WebLogic out-of-the-box installations are only templated and automated for… more»

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

As an application platform, you will need to carefully forecast your overall user and process load, and service-level agreements (SLA) in order to purchase an appropriate… more»

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

We use a half-dozen different application server technologies - which one is used depends more on application compatibility than choosing one specific one-size-fits-all… more»

What other advice do I have?

Cloning and replication of WebLogic instances isn't exactly a rote science. Because the stacks become secured against the hosting environments, encapsulating and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As mentioned, we purchase based upon application-focus, and not for custom development. As a result, choice of application hosting technology is driven according to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has greatly improved security wise over the last couple of years. The user experience is much better now than it was in the previous version, version 12. And the new inference manager is also much better.

What needs improvement?

All the areas of this program needs to improve. The integration with other providers and the user management could be better, and the upgrades are pretty complicated. So I would like to see that being improved in the next version.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be: don't complicate things. Keep it simple. On a scale from one to 10, I rate this solution a seven. I think the support could be much better. So perhaps the developers can work on that. Also, the WebLogic management console could be more intuitive or more up to date, because it's still the old console from version 10. Bring us up to enterprise manager or cloud control… more»

What is most valuable?

A valuable feature is its integration with Oracle Database. We have another system running Oracle Database which can be easily updated from the database and pushed to the middleware. Also, it easily… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is connected with our systems, and our systems run on Oracle. It is beneficial because it integrates with our internal systems. This resolves half of our problems for our internal system… more»

What needs improvement?

We need to have more adapters and connectors, especially healthcare system adapters. This solution doesn't have connectors to other external applications. We connect with other vendors' and other… more»

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

In general, it is a costly solution.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution as a seven out of 10, because it is not fully satisfying our needs. It is good in specific areas, but it's not satisfying all of our requirements. It is not a one stop shop. Most… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it provides one place where you can control all of the services. You can switch on and off individual services, which comes in very handy.

What needs improvement?

The restart capability needs to be improved because it takes us 15 minutes to restart any application. This is a heavy application, like everything that comes from Oracle. Debugging with this solution is tough and a bit complex. The… more»

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

Oracle is costly compared to the other solutions that we have. It is double the price of a similar solution that we use from Microsoft.

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

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What do you think of WebLogic Suite?

What is our primary use case?

We are a company that provides IT products and services. My role is to offer solutions to end-customers and then we implement and deploy it for them. WebLogic is part of the solution that we offer customers because PeopleSoft and Oracle ERP products both use it. WebLogic runs as the middleware for solutions such as Oracle Business Intelligence and Oracle Retail.

How has it helped my organization?

WebLogic adds a lot of value to business and investments.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature are robustness, high availability, and multi-domain concepts.

What needs improvement?

Deployment and integration should be simplified. I would like to see the licensing policy simplified.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been…

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the update deployment feature. Update deployment is when you already have an application deployed and you want to handle a new deployment. The feature ensures you don't need to add or remove anything. Rather, you just need to update and the feature will handle everything… more»

What needs improvement?

I had issues when I installed the SSL. With WebLogic, it's a very lengthy process.

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

The licensing for the solution is pretty expensive. It may be the most expensive solution, if you were to compare it to the competition.

What other advice do I have?

I'd suggest those considering implementing the solution to move to the cloud. It's very simple and easy. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

It runs smoothly and everything works fine. It integrates well with other solutions.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes there are issues when we work on a VM because people use it to put all of their reports on it at the same time. Then I have to restart and rebuild the machine. That is more of an issue with the users though.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten. The client is happy and there are some issues sometimes with the scalability but it's probably because of the users. Otherwise, we don't have any other problems. Sometimes there are issues with the reports.
