Amazon Athena

Amazon Athena is well suited for those who want to be able to use SQL queries to look at and analyze their data. Once you get up and running with the system and have all of your preferences ironed out, this is a very simple to understand and easy to use program that can help make information-based decisions. How could you not love that!?

Oracle Autonomous Database

[Oracle Autonomous Database] is well suited if you already have an vested interest in the Oracle Cloud, since Autonomous Database will closely integrate into the Oracle Cloud. It will able to deliver faster, simplified, and consistent Oracle deployments. On the other hand, if you're currently using another Cloud provider such as AWS or Microsoft Azure and has no plan to change in the near-term, it's probably not a good idea to invest in the Oracle Cloud. Multi-Cloud integration strategies are often more costly and often have architectural design issues and/or incompatibilities that will be difficult to overcome.

Pros

Amazon Athena

  • Pay only for the data you store. Huge money-saver right there.
  • Being able to query using a browser-based system.
  • Compatibility with other programs is a nice feature that is very useful.

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Robust - this product doesn't have a lot of downtime. It's less prone to errors than some other tools I've worked with.
  • Scalable - we can keep adding more things to it. We haven't hit any roadblocks when we've tried to do more with our database.

Cons

Amazon Athena

  • I wish that the program provided individualized access for different users instead of everyone seeing everything.
  • Initial setup can be a bit tedious for those unfamiliar with this type of querying.
  • Support can be a little lacking when it comes to additional features.

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Autonomous DB integration with PeopleSoft. Issues noticed in the application.
  • More flexibility of user access to DB OS.
  • External connections using DB link is not possible .
  • Appears sophisticated as a majority of the controls reside with Oracle in terms of security, patching, maintenance, tuning. Less responsibility to a proficient DBA.

Oracle Autonomous Database

Oracle Autonomous Database provides self administration features that are not available in previous databases like Oracle Database 12c and previous versions. So this is really good for the organizations to best use the resources and improve the performance of the applications. In addition, we don't have to think more about the versioning because this database will be take care of this.

Return on Investment

Amazon Athena

  • Aided in decision making processes that has saved money for departments and the company.
  • The program takes over doing the majority of the work that used to be manual for a lot of people. Fantastic time-saver.
  • The program makes other programs not as useful as they once were, which helped save money.

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Oracle Autonomous Database, and the safe harbor statements, are good, and when it comes to availability Oracle should control the number of bugs we hit every year, and they need to test all those bugs and the impacts before they release. They may be doing it today, but still, they need to invest their money into it. Even TDE is new and needs to improve a lot. The troubleshooting with TDE and skill level in Oracle needs to improve.
