Solutions for cloud developers are in need of improvement. Cheap and easy solutions for startups need to be made available. We would like to see Oracle Apex as an independent and paid solution.

The price tag is very high and most cannot afford it.

Oracle needs to stop suing users. The documentation needs improvement because as it is now, providing support is a headache.

I would like to see an improvement in the upgrade process. Sometimes it's very complicated to upgrade from one version to another. We are currently running the Oracle version 12 and we may need to upgrade in the future. These upgrades are not very simple and should be made more user-friendly. If it could be more affordable, it would be a plus. Because the product is very expensive.

The cost of this solution needs to be improved.

The Oracle Database could improve on integration with other infrastructure systems like Active Directory.

This product would be improved with Support Services for more production access.

The additional features that should be included in the database: I would like to see improvements for database security products.

Its performance could always be better and better but, other than that, I can't think of any additional features I would like to see.

There are a lot of bugs in the Oracle Database, and it would be better if the bugs would be solved more quickly than they are today. The bugs could be anything. They could be related to any problem. For example, we had a problem with the physical standby, and the bugs had already been there for a few years in the databases, but not solved in the newer versions.

* Integration with big data would be helpful since we are planning to load a lot of big data. * A lot of features have bugs or choose the wrong way to process data. Sometimes, we struggle with that.

Oracle is going now to what we call autonomous databases. Personally, I don’t believe in autonomous databases that will manage themselves. It might be that in the cloud versions they actually have the ability of doing that for you, managing the infrastructure, fixing all the patches that you need, and so on. Still, the tuning business has a long way to go to be completely autonomous. There is still a need for a person to manage the database, especially the performance and tuning. It might be those future databases - not in the near future but in the distant future - will be autonomous completely. Oracle could be one of the first to incorporate that.
