The interface should be more user-friendly. Compared to other cloud environments, it's not as good. It should be implemented better from Passport. It should have a better link to the cloud to communicate more effectively. The solution should integrate better with other tools and different vendors. I don't know of any additional features that I would like to see added to the solution.

One of the problems with this solution is that the person who procures it for the organization becomes a primary owner of the cloud infrastructure, despite not being a technical person. It is the IT people who will be doing the actual work, and Oracle is not able to map it. This is an operational hassle for customers and it has to be cleaned up. Simple provisioning is fine, but when it comes to complex provisioning, Oracle Cloud is not quick compared to competing solutions. Support from Oracle for this solution needs to improve. Simplifying the cloud management console would be really valuable for small and large customers alike. The next thing that needs to happen from Oracle is that they quickly expand data centers across different regions. This should happen at the very earliest time possible.

Even though the price was not bad for our purposes, I think Oracle should open up their software service more to customers by bringing the pricing down for the product. The cost may be a bit high for many potential users. One feature I also think I would like to see is better portability of the VMware environment into the Oracle Cloud. I think the integration process should be made more simple. We use vSphere and it was not as easy as it should have been.

I would like to have identity access management. If someone is accessing any application, I should know about it. I think Oracle does have that feature, but with Amazon all the roles are privileged. With Oracle, you have to create your own roles and it is more complex.
