Oracle Database

[Oracle Database is] a great database solution, it suits very well all kinds of applications and problems. The good thing about it is the relational part, because everyone with a
little knowledge of databases can use the SQL language to deal with the
tables and contents. BUT it is expensive, so if you have a small business, it may not be the best option.

SAP HANA

I recommend SAP HANA as Database Management System (DBMS) to perform ETL operations well and for storage / retrieval of data, defining / management of data, and generation of reports. The data hierarchy view and folders makes the interface simple and helpful to group different items. It is helpful for the management of huge data set and data visualization. It is capable of running in-memory to process data rapidly.

Pros

Oracle Database

  • Best thing about it is that it supports PL/SQL which is helpful in writing complex quarries easily.
  • Its storage capacity , backup and recovery features make it the best database storage tool available.
  • Other thing I like about this software is its interface is so good.

SAP HANA

  • Data collection is in real time. When the data source of the various sectors is integrated, SAP Hana is able to collect accurate and real-time information, be it from negotiations, advertising, customer service and much more. This data collection in real time allows us to obtain graphs that advance in real time, and thus we can know exactly the movement of each area of ​​the company at all times without having to wait a long time for a report to be generated.
  • The SAP Hana database is very secure, all our data remains safe at all times and we can choose the privacy of the information, so that each person in charge of managing the platform can see specific information. We can import and export data at any time, without fear that any of our essential data will be leaked or stolen.
  • It supports an amount of data greater than 40TB, this helps us too much to be able to collect information and store it, to be able to have a much broader graphical analysis that covers several days or several weeks, and even months.

Cons

Oracle Database

  • The memory demand and management makes it impossible to run it in a container.
  • It is hard to perform local unit testing with Oracle even using the personal edition (aggressive all the available memory grab for itself).
  • Lack of built in database migrations (e.g. as Flyway).
  • The need to install the Oracle client in addition to its drivers.
  • The cost of running it, especially in the Cloud.
  • Comes with very spartan community grade client/management tools whereas the commercial offerings tend to demand a premium price.

SAP HANA

  • Implementing SRS patches incurs significant cost to upgrade the existing system.
  • It runs only in Linux Environment. Does not compatible in other OS.
  • The older version gets outdated more often due to frequent SPS updates and releasing enhanced SAP HANA’s versions.

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.

At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

Many of the powerful options can be auto-configured but there are still many things to take into account at the moment of installing and configuring an Oracle Database, compared with SQL Server or other databases. At the same time, that extra complexity allows for detailed configuration and guarantees performance, scalability, availability and security.

In addition to the points described in the previous parts of the review, I believe that as I gain more experience with the product over time, I will be able to better describe my experience with this tool. Meanwhile, I can confirm that the possibilities presented to my organization by the change to SAP HANA, at the moment, have been very important to evolve the analytical and strategic field towards a new path.

1. I have very good experience with Oracle Database support team. Oracle support team has pool of talented Oracle Analyst resources in different regions. To name a few regions - EMEA, Asia, USA(EST, MST, PST), Australia. Their support staffs are very supportive, well trained, and customer focused. Whenever I open Oracle Sev1 SR(service request), I always get prompt update on my case timely.2. Oracle has zoom call and chat session option linked to Oracle SR. Whenever you are in Oracle portal - you can chat with the Oracle Analyst who is working on your case. You can request for Oracle zoom call thru which you can share the your problem server screen in no time. This is very nice as it saves lot of time and energy in case you have to follow up with oracle support for your case.3.Oracle has excellent knowledge base in which all the customer databases critical problems and their solutions are well documented. It is very easy to follow without consulting to support team at first.

SAP has a good support system for their all products in general and the support teams are easy to connect in a matter of assistance requirement. There are multiple support channels available for the customers to be able to get answered for their problems, the most easiest as per my experience is live chat, as we get instant assistance from the real persons at the other end and that too in real-time.

Overall the implementation went very well and after that everything came out as expected - in terms of performance and scalability. People should always install and upgrade a stable version for production with the latest patch set updates, test properly as much as possible, and should have a backup plan if anything unexpected happens

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Database

Oracle is more of an enterprise-level database than Access and SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise isn't getting developed much (some people wonder how close it is to end of life) but SQL Server is miles ahead of Oracle IMO in terms of user experience and comparable in terms of performance AFAIK. As stated, a vendor forced our hand to use Oracle so we did not have a choice. If you are looking for help with an issue you are having, there are lots of SQL Server articles, etc. on the web and the community of SQL Server developers and DBA's is very strong and supportive. Oracle's help on the web is much more limited and often has an attitude that goes with it of superiority and lacking in compassion, IMO. For instance, check out the Ask Tom Oracle blog - a world of difference. If you choose Oracle, go into it with eyes wide open.

I can definitely confirm that SAP HANA cloud solution is by far the best seeing that their machine learning capabilities and sophisticated algorithms are worth the cost. It also leads in in-memory database features hence its great performance.

Return on Investment

  • Licensing cost is still a concern compared to the other options available in the market that are very very inexpensive
  • Almost a maintenance free database
  • Oracle Grid makes life easy in terms of monitoring and managing the databases

SAP HANA

  • The [strategies] and the time consumed on migrating to HANA was time [consuming] and costly during the initial phases of the project.
  • The time and resources utilized to set up the infra plan from requirements to production was huge.
  • But once we were getting into cadence of utilizing the open architecture of HANA we were able to utilize its features that helped us to leverage.
  • Again I would say that overall for us HANA [has] proved to be worth spending for as it helped us achieve our business's objectives.
