In situations in which you have high-end, up-to-date hardware systems, Take Control will thrive. Using the software on older system, or clients that do not wish to update to current OS/hardware, Take Control will suffer.

I believe Oracle Secure Global Desktop is better used on a larger device such as a desktop or laptop, as the Android platform is a bit confusing when initially introduced to fellow employees who were familiar with the other layout.

N-able

  • Copy and paste functions from the host to a remote desktop is cumbersome.

Oracle

  • Is not supported on Apple devices.
  • Support on Android - the functionality feels flimsy and the layout isn't as user friendly as I thought it would be in comparison to when it is used on a desktop platform.
  • Initially, when first using the product a year or so ago, I received a lot of complaints of random error messages. Though that problem seems to have been solved in the interim.

      Take Control can be accessed through a browser whereas Windows Remote Desktop requires settings on the PC and device to remote into the end device. Installing the end devices application has mostly been a flawless install with limited setting configurations. GoToMyPC has often required a reboot of the end device in order to get it working.

      Tarantella gave us a lot of issues, but with Oracle Secure Global Desktop [we got] the huge portfolio of Oracle applications from almost any browser, without the headache of application dependencies, plugins, java etc. My fellow employees like the way Oracle Secure Global Desktop gives us the "feel" of many little desktops but with one machine.

      Return on Investment

      N-able

      • Looks professional and the ease of addressing issues raised by the RMM gives clients confidence in me as their provider.
      • Managed Service clients tend to appreciate minimal work interruption, so quick connections that don't require user interaction is great.

      Oracle

      • Efficiency is definitely a good description. The easy to use platform allows fellow employees to move through their online apps with ease.
      • Applying new online apps is a lot easier, as we do not have to rely on a central server to pull information.
      • As our client is national, it's good to have quick, reliable cloud access to all sensitive materials without worrying about security issues.
