The pricing could be improved. It would ideal if it was more reasonable. The design isn't that great. It's kind-of buggy and doesn't seem to cater to the Korean market. There seems to be issues relating to migration. It's difficult to migrate off of it if you need to.

They should lower the price. My customers think that it's too expensive.

The solution could benefit from AI improvements. Technical support could be improved. The usability of the solution could be better. They should make it easier in terms of system administration and for getting examples of statistics from the databases. An interface or dashboard for statistics would be better. Right now, we're using cloud controls to do that, but it's not good enough.

I'm not sure about the improvements needed in the solution. The solution is quite expensive.

We use some partitions in In-Memory. We have a very large table and a low dose. It is very expensive in data to load all of them into In-Memory. It takes up more memory slots in the server, as well as a lot of RAM. We use the last partitions on the table. We always need to create a script and make a schedule that can load the last partition In-Memory. Oracle doesn't have features to do this automatically. I would like them to allow us to load last partitions, as well as other table partitions, in In-Memory. I think a good feature would do that automatically, letting you see a table, load a large partition, and monitor loading memory. It's quite a good feature.

One very nice side-effect is the in-memory index. If this would be developed a bit more into being configurable, users could use it as a kind of in-memory partitioning. That opens a big field of possible use cases.
