Reporting could be more detailed. They are improving reporting with new versions.

The learning curve can be a problem occasionally.

If you have high Oracle licensing costs it may be worth it to investigate and evaluate a Lime Software subscription. Avoiding an audit can save money in the short term.

Works on all main Oracle platforms including Solaris, Windows, Unix and Linux. Relatively easy to install, nothing to deploy and not need to compromise your infrastructure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

No backend infrastructure, no additional databases to setup and maintain, minimal resources required to deploy, automated data collection, no real user intervention required. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Subscription based pricing can be annoying but the reduction in oracle licensing costs makes up for this. Somewhat confusing reports however this is more of a symptom of oracle licensing than lime itself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have high oracle licensing costs it may be worth it to investigate a Lime subscription. The reduction in licensing fees will help reduce the lime subscription fees and save you money in the end. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I manage both an internal EMR and multiple of EMRs for external clients my backend requires a stable secure backend environment. Oracle's database solutions provide a stable, secure backend for this service however it comes with a high cost (especially when compared to open source solutions). Lime has allowed me to reduce my licensing costs to the exact number of instances/licenses I require without having to navigate the complicated Oracle licensing agreements.

What do you like best?

Anyone who has worked with Oracle knows the last thing you want is a group of lawyers showing up at your door to do an audit. Lime has helped us track our usage of oracle licenses and allows us to forecast budget requirements and remain in compliance with the licensing to avoid costly audit from Oracle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am not a huge fan of the way that Oracle licenses their software, but that is the nature of the beast and this software helps mitigate that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Avoiding an audit can save money in the short term, but being able to successfully forecast upcoming costs is a very nice benefit as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Database licensing management. One of the biggest benefits is being able to project the costs associated with licensing and it is priceless to avoid a big surprise audit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
