"Oracle 12c in AWS Cloud"

What do you like best?

The ease of setup in Amazon Web Services makes Oracle 12c a solid choice for Relational Database needs, along with tools that we are used to having like Oracle SQL Developer. The clustering of 12c gives us reliability, failover and confidence that our data is in good shape.

What do you dislike?

Was a bit difficult to get security group rules in place from Amazon Elastic Beanstalk after we had setup Oracle RDS with public access. We had thought that meant public within AWS as well, but that's not the case. It didn't take too long to find the security group which needed changed though, and after that we got to focus on our implementation.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a powerful and reliable relational database system that brings many features to the table and maturity of Oracle's well-developed product.

"Oracle 12c works perfect for and stable big company with hard database structure"

What do you like best?

I like this software because i been using it for years, since oracle 10 and i'm experimented on it, for me its easy to use. It have been improving each version, right now is on top of database, fiable, good enterprise support and has strong security, easy way to do querys.

What do you dislike?

Oracle is one of the biggest and more stable database, but it's a kind hard to learn how to use it and administrate it. its becomes involved with many librarys and files on the operating systems so you will have to know a good knowlodge of oracle and the os.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The new oracle 12c is always getting updates and patches for improve their functionality and security, it can be used for little, middle, big and very big databases, if you are looking for a new implementation or migrating to oracle is worth it, it is a little hard to understand and get knowledge, but after you got it, you will have speed on the querys and security of your data.

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

I'm actually working in a big company that has an Oracle 12c database of 12 terabytes, it is hard to administrate and critical for the business if it does get down, works perfectly with aix and can be boost with powerha or oracle rac, its important to be with oracle because you have big support and the fiability that the database will always improving their performance.

"Best and Most Versatile Database"

What do you like best?

I love the quick and easy SQL. I know its not 100% standard, but outer joins with (+) are so much easier to read than "left join ... on ...". It is also easy to optimise and there are loads of parameters for all types of circumstances. I also like that I can set up DBLinks to for example SQL Server and write Oracle SQL that works against SQL Server. And I like the PL/SQL. One can write detailed and complex programs inside the Oracle database and its amazing how quickly they run.

What do you dislike?

Oracle has got very big and it is difficult to keep up to date with all the different developments. I focus on the Oracle PL/SQL programming and I use Delphi for the front end. At the moment I am learning how to do REST inside the Oracle database, and the documentation and set up is rather complex and it is time consuming to set up something that shouldn't be so complex. Oracle SQL Developer, the free DML and DDL tool that comes with Oracle is good, but slightly buggy and I much prefer Toad.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A great database. Easy to use, tune, debug, work with. Might seem a bit pricey, but IMHO it is worth it. And everything is free at development time, for as long as you need, which is important for me.

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

Accounting, Incentive and Loyalty, Call Centre, ERP, Everything ...

Quick development, easy to work inside the database easy to debug with Toad.

"Oracle DB -- benifits"

What do you like best?

It has so many products which includes sql plsql and forma and reports. It does even has ODI(oracle data integrator) which serves the etl purpose .

We even used ODI for extract transform and load purpose. We used other oracle utilities to read and write the data to different data bases. oracle 12c gaves us so much performance improvements when we migrated from oracle 11g. we used oracle data pump utility instead of data stage etl tool. this gave a big prformance improvement. The hints facilty has helped us a lot to improve the performance and also we used parallel feature also which gave a boost in performance. the mail utility and other utilities were so handy when we work with oracle DB

What do you dislike?

The performance when compared with terdata and other data bases

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

We used it for both Online analitical process (OLAP) and online transactional processing (OLTP).

We even used ODI for extract transform and load purpose. We used other oracle utilities to read and write the data to different data bases. oracle 12c gaves us so much performance improvements when we migrated from oracle 11g. we used oracle data pump utility instead of data stage etl tool. this gave a big prformance improvement

"Point of Sales - Stuck Tickets"

What do you like best?

Most of the problems encountered are easy SQL statement fixes. Access to the database is simple and no extra assistance from a phone representative is needed. Furthermore, this database has super useful table and column names for separating orders for fast food restaurants. Love the organization of the program.

What do you dislike?

There is one problem in specific that I run into at work with the fast food restaurants mentioned above. Tickets often get stuck or are not processed, probably because of an internet issue. Nonetheless, these tickets affect my numbers at the end of the day if they are not removed on time. Inconvenient at the least.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keep track of inventory and bills using a third party software in case data is lost or the system goes down. This helps verify things are running as they should in a business.

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

The oracle database often recommends a certain amount of product to be ordered based on inventory. In other words, when we complete inventory, the database will give specific amounts of product estimated to be used on our next truck. A combination of this number and my guess helps order the correct amount of food.

"Automatic optimization, security and availability in the cloud."

What do you like best?

One of the aspects of this version of Oracle is the automation of databases, through an intelligent compression which causes the most recent data with respect in the old ones. In relation to security, the redaction function protects the integrity of the data in the case of private data such as credit cards that are displayed in applications that are the same during the time of operation, the analysis of the data is more accurate in the case of Big Data than through SQL Pattern Matching can be analyzed as soon as the business requirements are for business strategies, user registries or financial type triangulations.

What do you dislike?

One of the big disadvantages is that your configuration should be in a very good condition and an error can be a big problem that only reduces the loss of time and productivity while another aspect is its price should be taken in consideration as far as its implementation and analyze if it is necessary in as soon as to the power and the requirements of the company so as to determine if it is the most appropriate

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommended for the efficiency in service, diversity of advanced functions, the analysis of large volumes of data, cloud computing, security and quality in services this version as well as later always guarantee a strong service experience as well as end user in the majority In These cases, the expected results are obtained in terms of their implementation.

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

It is of great advantage in terms of database administration, as well as the use of Big Data in obtaining detailed analysis in which it can be used in many utilities in four business strategies that can satisfy customers from a reliable and safe service.

"Working on Oracle plsql from last 3 years "

What do you like best?

I like the reliability and functionality of Oracle database especially when it comes to performance .

Whenever I am using most of the instances in Oracle 12c I used to feel very comfortable by the performance and easy access of huge amount of data and it's ability to maintain integrity of data are making Oracle 12c software as best database option to most of the banking industries.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes...when ever I used sorting option in plsql while fetching data it will get stuck in the middle .This is the only thing I have felt uncomfortable with this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I can suggest Oracle 12c to everyone as one can feel comfortable while using this software in terms of performance and ease of access of huge data at a very fast rate.

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

I used to deal with plsql procedures, functions ,cursors , packages , triggers in Oracle 12c to process my business needs like making some financial transactions through these objects . I have realized that Oracle 12c has much simple and some automated things in it compared to 11g.

"Good for clustering and full database caching"

What do you like best?

I have dabbled with many databases for the enterprise and organization over a period of time and i strongly feel this is the best database one could ever get because of its scalability and aggregation, and surely the best relational database for large scale application servers and performs well under a heavy load and cheap,store retrieval options are easy and more flexible to create triggers and also create partitions and also in terms of backup and recovery it stands out all the time

What do you dislike?

There are some issues which i really hate one being the restricted PGA size ,table level recovery in recovery manager (RMAN),multiple indexes on the same column which takes quite a bit of a time inorder to get there and also fetch the data effectively and temporary undo in and outs and online migration of an active data file which takes quite a bit of a time and also sometimes session logging and tracking is a hassle here

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would prefer it just for the uniqueness and robustness this database has to offer and also the temporary cache storage tables all the time

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

For creating synonyms,ddl logging like create update delete statements it works faster and quite efficiently most of the times and temporary undo information takes a lot of steps to get it done but i felt that is effective for the business needs and we were able to save a lot of time in the process

"An excellent database management system for a large enterprise"

What do you like best?

This DBMS is robust enough to support our enterprise's HR/Benefits/Payroll/Requisitions/AP system with flexibility when we need to add custom tables. It's easy to use and comes with a well-thought-out set of developer's utilities that enable us to inquire and test as needed to respond to the needs of our internal customers.

What do you dislike?

Navigating through a large database can be troublesome and at times counter-intuitive. If there's a way, using the Oracle-supplied tools to force an inquiry to use a specific index, I have not yet found it. Although the user area of the Developer's workbench is a tabbed interface, it does not appear to be possible to have several different tables open at the same time, and follow keys from one to the next. Of course, I can do a join and get the relationship information I need, but there are times when I'd prefer to pull up one table, identify a foreign key in the data, double-click it, and have the program display the data associated with that key.

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

As I mentioned, we use Oracle to host our HR/Benefits/Payroll/Requisitions/AP system. This is the vendor-specified choice, and we have found it to be remarkably useful for hosting our own customized data as well. It's generally fast and very reliable.

"Robust Database for any kind of projects"

What do you like best?

Oracle Database 12c introduced many important capabilities, database consolidation, performance tuning, partitioning, query optimization, high availability, backup and recovery etc. Oracle 12c provide great support and features that are efficient in terms of memory management as well as performance making it one of the best database tools in the market to manage our data. This adds to our overall ROI by making it maintainable.

What do you dislike?

I think the biggest drawback is perhaps its price. While we know that we can download much of the developments of the company, it is also true that we can not access the services of My Oracle Support or have available all the programs and updates

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For creating synonyms,ddl logging like create update delete statements it works faster and quite efficiently most of the times and temporary undo information takes a lot of steps to get it done but i felt that is effective for the business needs and we were able to save a lot of time in the process

"Sr. Oracle Database Engineer"

What do you like best?

Oracle software provides great granularity in setting up the environment as per our needs and requirements. Customizing the solutions based on the problem areas comes with great ease and performance.

Performance issues could be easily found out using the tools like OEM and profiler options. Crontab allows us to make sure that all the jobs are properly schedule.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that I dislike with Oracle. It would have been great to have the GUI on the Oracle similar to SQL Server management studio to manage the databases much efficiently and automate lots of stuff more efficiently and faster. Re-inventing the wheel kind of scenarios are some of the examples that we could have eliminated if we would have had a comfortable GUI tool to run on.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great product and perfect fit for the Production environment for Mission-Critical databases.

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

We are utilizing the Oracle databases as a backend to Support Linkedin.com customer facing website. We have one of the largest GoldenGate implementations at LinkedIn having multi-colo setup. This is setup across 4 Datacenters across the Globe to provide high availability. We also have Active DataGuard setup across all the databases on all the colos to provide read traffic their dedicated instance. Also, having the nodes used for the Database backup and recovery purpose in times of disaster.

We also have the downstream functionality and support to our downstream customers like Teradata, Hadoop and Reporting environments to do near-live analytics of the data and run business critical reporting which goes to the Senior Leadership and Board level for analyzing the company's performance, objectives and goals.

We also have the custom scripting and Audit on top of our existing configuration to support what we already been provided by Oracle.

Automation using shell, perl and python scripts have been of a great deal using Oracle to setup lot of jobs which perform routine DBA tasks.

"Good solid database just a bit complex"

What do you like best?

Oracle is great for being used with certain products. The setup is fairly straight forward and creating your database is really simple. Once the database is in place there's nothing you really need to do as the system jsut works. There are a few extra tweaks you can do such as enable the Oracle Web Console, this is really useful as it will allow you to update any dbf files and associate them correctly. You can also tweak the memory usage to make your oracle system perform much better.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike how you have 2 zip files and within those zip files there are other zip files. you then need to move files from one extracted folder to the other extracted folder, this just makes things complicated. The backing up of the system is not very straight forward, you can use rman but you can't do this on a schedule, it is also not clear if spf files have to be created each time. The Oracle Web Client should also be enabled by default, its straight forward enough to enable yourself however if this was something that was done via installation it would make life just that little bit easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If anyone is considering this for use within the business make sure that you read the installation guides and help guides prior to putting this in your environment, especially if you're a newbie!

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

We use oracle for a DLP system, we are seeing benefits when it comes to storage, and it is actually doing a good job.

"experance with oracle "

What do you like best?

compare with other old versions of oracle like 11g etc. 12c is some what different and present business world is expecting every thing should be could based because it will helps a lot to manage space before could we have to give physical space for storage now with could all gone oracle database helps us to achieve that

What do you dislike?

most of the company databases are using 11g in order to shift from 11g to 12c some migration is needed the have to make things more use to shift from version to version

Recommendations to others considering the product:

oracle 12c version is more advanced compared to old versions having technology on cloud will help you grow in IT field

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

now not needed to have physical storage to store data cloud technology we store at remote place accordingly oracle updated now with less investment we can store

"The best relational database"

What do you like best?

Hands-down the best relational database on the market, if not considering the price part. Stable relational database since version 9i. With 12c you get lots of features for free, lots of work done specially in optimizor so that only Oracle can handle queries of that complexity.

What do you dislike?

With more automation or artificial intelligence as they named it, there is obvious overhead. To make things easy, evaluate what your application really need and disabled things you don't need. The license model is very complicated, really need an expert in your organization to work on it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Hands down the best relational database on market, if cost is not a concern.

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

Money related transactional database systems. A stable system that just does what it's programmed to do, high available, low latency, no data loss, no corruption, no custom complaints.

"Oracle Database 12c for Business that Supports Clientele"

What do you like best?

I like all the features of Oracle 12c. Its performance, flexibility.,Advanced Index Compression, Full Database Caching

What do you dislike?

Technically I do not like the price of the 12c other than Price feature. Oracle is one of the biggest and more stable database, but it's a kind hard to learn how to use it and administrate it. its becomes involved with many library and files on the operating systems so you will have to know a good knowledge of oracle and the OS.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The new oracle 12c is always getting updates and patches for improve their functionality and security, it can be used for little, middle, big and very big databases, if you are looking for a new implementation or migrating to oracle is worth it, it is a little hard to understand and get knowledge, but after you got it, you will have speed on the querys and security of your data.

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

I'm actually working in a big company that has an Oracle 12c database of 12 terabytes, it is hard to administrate and critical for the business if it does get down, works perfectly with aix and can be boost with powerha or oracle rac, its important to be with oracle because you have big support and the fiability that the database will always improving their performance.

I have never been dissatisfied with there products.It is very easy to integrate with other services.It has one of the best enterprise support and has great security features which makes it a go to software.If you run into problem documentations are in very brief and easy to understand.

It is not for beginners. You need to spend time and sometimes money to master this powerhouse. Luckily you can get training in how to use it anywhere nowadays.i wish they would make the code open source that would be awesome.It has very high cost of ownership.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

"Oracle Database 12C review"

What do you like best?

I could say that there are lot of things in oracle 12c which I likes the most, but one of the quick thing comes to my mind is the Enhanced DDL Operations feature of 12C, which no longer require blocking lock operations and thus allow us to drop the index online and thus saving a lot of time and efforts of a technical person. Another key feature with 12C is their Multitenant Architecture, which introduces container databases (CDB) thus allowing zero, one or many pluggable databases. With this feature, it would be really easy for a Database administrator to have a CDB, with all necessary information , instead of having multiple DB’s architected differently and thus managing them a piece of cake of them.

What do you dislike?

one of the most irritating thing about using oracle product is their support levels. It is really easy to log a call with Oracle, but very hard to get a solution. In my personnel experience, I have seen that once the service request is open , it is a pain in ass to make the level 1 engineer to understand our problem, as the solutions they recommend is generally already applied by the user and he needs some priority and senior person to work on his issue, but they follow strict protocol, which sucks the users experience.

Another pain area is that with everybody getting in virtualization solutions for their business, Oracle will offer very limited guidance on how to properly apply database licensing metrics for non-Oracle virtualization software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

From my experience, I would recommend every database administrator to use this product, as apart from his robustness, it is very easy to use and configure as per our applications requirement. Moreover, its fine tuning is easy and thus it could be customized as per your requirements, especially while in cloud native applications.

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

the oracle 12C provides a lot of enhanced features which allow us to realize our business goals, like I said earlier, one of the key feature of container databases are extensively used by us for a seamless aligning our business cloud native applications with oracle databases. Another simple feature of 12C, where they have increased variable character size limit from 4,000 to 32,767 bytes is used by us in our new big data applications, where large character size is a common norm these days.

"Max reliability for transactional tasks"

What do you like best?

Oracle 12c has reached the maximum reliability and availability thanks to the chance to deploy a cluster environment by shared cached. Keep in mind that previous version , as all relational database, suffered from scalability and availability.It is clear that it can't replace a NoSQL database as soon as data are from different sources as unstructured or semi-structured data.

What do you dislike?

Learning curve,especially for those are approaching to Oracle for a short time is a bit long. In fact there are many aspects to care about ,such as policy management, security, administration and auditing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation is : If your business requires high availability , efficiency , professional support needed to guarantee a high quality of service .Then you have to go straight Oracle 12c, otherwise you can save money go for much less expensive solutions in terms of license.

" Analysis and development of information systems with database management"

What do you like best?

I use Oracle Database as part of my work, since, I support an administrative management system that uses to store Oracle 12C data. What I like about 12C is the option or "Invisible Columns" mode, which allows you to hide the change until we want to publish it, the mytable option that allows you to create a table in two steps and the addition of a field in invisible mode are of the options that I like.

What do you dislike?

As a specialist and consultant in the area of ​​IT and with experience in Oracle Database, the biggest drawback is perhaps its price. Even the personal licenses of Oracle 12c are excessively expensive, in my opinion. While we know that we can download much of the developments of the company, it is also true that we can not access the services of My Oracle Support or have available all the programs and updates

Recommendations to others considering the product:
