The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

Pros

  • Crunches huge datasets
  • Has versatility in functionality and grouping capabilities
  • Native XML macro language is easy to master
  • The platform has great visualization tools

  • Oracle rarely has issues or unplanned downtime. I have come across some bugs with older versions of Oracle, but these are usually related to false error reporting and are well documented.
  • Oracle has good and reliable performance. The design of separating the undo and the redo logs makes it so that we never have the issues of an uncommitted transaction filling up the redo and halting the database.
  • Oracle has good documentation available on their website. The Oracle support portal is usually the best place to get information when troubleshooting a problem.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • Oracle database documentation is so wide that it may be discouraging to people who don't like reading.
  • Oracle database is quite expensive and not ideal for companies that are starting up.
  • The database takes up a lot of space.

There is a lot of sunk cost in a product like Oracle 12c. It is doing a great job, it would not provide us much benefit to switch to another product even if it did the same thing due to the work involved in making such a switch. It would not be cost effective.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.

I personally have also supported both Microsoft SQL Server and PostgresSQL.We have used Microsoft SQL Server for some smaller projects where the vendor only supports that environment. But whenever there is a choice, we use Oracle Database 12c. Students access our systems at all hours of the day and night. Therefore we must be operational 24x7. Oracle's RAC evironment is a true cluster system. Microsoft SQL Server clustering does not allow the same fault tolerance, always up environment that we need.PostgreSQL is freeware. Because of that we do not feel like it is appropriate for large mission critical applications. There is no vendor to call for direct support, although some companies do sell support services. Patches, such as security fixes are not released on a regular basis.

Return on Investment

  • This has sped up the process of analysis.
  • We can now automate process which were performed manually.
  • Analysis can be performed more frequently.

  • Oracle Database 12c allows us to have a smaller IT department than many other organizations. There are tools associated with it such as Oracle Enterprise Manager that allow us to automate administrative tasks and alert us when there are problems which frees us up to do other more important tasks.
  • It has also allowed us to continue having good throughput of transactions. When registration opens for each new term, our systems are slammed with students logging on. In the past students would have to wait in line to get registered, sometimes waiting for hours. Improved performance with better releases of Oracle Database as well as streamlined hardware have eliminated this.
  • Oracle works with all of its customers, especially educational institutions to work out pricing so that you can get what you really need. Even though they are pricey, if you are willing to meet with them, they will work with you to help you determine which options are most suited to meeting your business goals. They aren't just trying to sell software at all costs.
