Likelihood to Recommend

Oracle Database

I believe that Oracle Database can be used almost on any scenario, starting with small department solutions to actually any enterprise level system. It includes many features that allow a single database to work as an OLTP and Data Warehouse at the same time, reducing hardware requirements and the need to implement ETL or integration solutions between OLTP and DW.

SAP HANA Cloud

One of the advantages of SAP HANA Cloud is that it can easily be used to extend your current on-premise HANA system. We haven't tested it yet in a large scale project for instance as the database for an S/4 HANA implementation. This requires further investigation at this time.

Pros

Oracle Database

  • Oracle database is battle tested and has been in the industry for a long time, meaning they have a good understanding of the markets demands.
  • Oracle database is secure and ensures that user data is not tampered with through prompt updates.
  • Peer to peer communities are available to help solve almost all problems that one may be facing.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • It's the way to go for the foreseeable future if SAP HANA is your platform of choice
  • We like the features currently available, but are anxiously awaiting for more on-prem features to make it over to the offering
  • Multi-Cloud deployment options is a huge benefit

Cons

Oracle Database

  • Oracle 12c SQL Developer is included with the product for no additional licensing cost, but it is much more limited compared to query tools such as TOAD.
  • Oracle 12c stumbles on certain queries with the optimizer not catching simple methods to return queries very quickly. Often a scalar subquery is required to reduce the time by up to 99%.
  • On occasion, the optimizer can miss simple changes such as IN ('1','2','3') working but BETWEEN '1' AND '3' being stuck in an infinite loop.
Bennett Walker | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA Cloud

  • Remote source connections through SDA to other databases like SQL Server and Oracle are no longer possible. The only way to go would be through SDI, which isn't as optimized and might require additional license costs.
  • If you currently use features like dynamic tiering or R server integration, you need to really look if this is the offering for you at this point in time.
  • The flexibility of downsizing, which is a big advantage of working in the cloud, is at this moment not available (yet).

Usability

Oracle Database

Oracle Database 8.1
Based on 5 answers
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.

Usability has been solid sofar, as well as the ease of setting up the SAP HANA Cloud instance. If you are a current user of HANA on-prem, you should feel straight at home.

The product is very good but when you need help it's very difficult. Oracle must have a database with all the customers' configuration so we don't lose a lot of time answering questions.We finally contract with a premium DBA to solve all our issues.

As we haven't used the support for SAP HANA Cloud yet, we can't really comment on this. The documentation however has helped us a lot.

The implementation of Oracle Database 12C was smooth and upgradation can be performed in minimum time as oracle 12C gives option to perform metadata upgrade using parallel option

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Database

Compared to other SQL type databases, Oracle can simply be described as a super-set or an extension of them.As Oracle has not only the features of SQL but also PL/SQL, it is much more feature rich compared to other databases technologies. However, there is no fair way to compared Oracle against MongoDB as their basic principles are on totally different terms.Any application that needs not only the power of storage but automatic manipulation of data dynamically during runtime is definitely a place where Oracle should be used.

SAP HANA Cloud

We have evaluated other offerings like SAP HEC and HANA as a service in the SAP Cloud Platform and we see that SAP HANA Cloud is the main focus of SAP's vision for the future. This is the main argument why we're leaning towards using this offering. Especially the quarterly releases of updates and new features is a positive criterium for us.

Return on Investment

Oracle Database

  • Positive Impact - I have been serving as a DBA to a Aviation Industry customer since 2009. Aviation Industry User community believes that Oracle database product is best product in the world. The reason would be it has been in the market for many years, more reliable product and the customer has more confidence in Oracle than others, has good market reputation, so many oracle expertise easily available whenever and where ever needed in affordable cost.
  • Positive Impact - Oracle12c with - ODA, Exadata, Big data appliance, Super cluster, and Oracle12c cloud offering are becoming popular day by day.
  • Negative Impact - Oracle licensing cost has been one of the most debatable topics in business user community every year.
