I think it's a great product. We apply Oracle GoldenGate to several use cases in our organization. 1. Business Continuity Planning, 2. Query Offloading through data replication to a reporting instance of our data, 3. looking into data transformations to help support various queries for different teams within the business.

Pimcore is especially suitable for an organization that has a complex data model and processes that cannot be met easily with out of the box systems. It is especially helpful where data is lying in multiple legacy systems and needs complex integrations with these systems. It may not be the best choice for someone looking for and out of the box system with predefined features.
Read full review Pros As the product under the Oracle umbrella, it perfectly and natively supports the Oracle database very well. For the standard scenario and use cases, the configuration is straight-forward (in our case uni-direction copy from source to target). It is robust and the performance meets our SLA, even for a large amount of data volume. The error report is not only detailed but hits the right points, so trouble shooting is easy.

All that works was the command line. The cost of the product can be a detriment to most companies. The product has been augmented over the years and has so many features that it can be overwhelming.

Oracle GoldenGate is a core part of our business.
Read full review Usability
Once set up, it's very easy to use and keep running, it's getting to that point that can make it cumbersome to some. Also, depending on the data that you want to replicate, the configuration files can become quite cumbersome to maintain. Learning curve can be high for some who are not as experienced with databases and transactions.

Oracle Support for Oracle GoldenGate has been quite responsive and quite helpful in the few situations where we've needed it. Furthermore, the documentation on Oracle GoldenGate is so good that we often do not need to contact support with issues as the fix is already documented and able to be run by us without needing to open a ticket.

We've had Oracle consultants come as well for training days to talk about new features, parts of Oracle GoldenGate we may not be using and things of that nature. The consultants they send are great as they're very knowledgeable about all things Oracle GoldenGate and great resources for any questions or concerns you may have with the product.

We used Oracle University for our Oracle Golden Gate Training and it was top notch. We were able to turn our whole DBA team to Oracle GoldenGate newbies to Oracle GoldenGate troubleshooting experts in a matter of a few days, while this obviously did not come cheap, the company felt that it was worth the investment.

If Oracle GoldenGate is new to your organization, expose as many DBAs as possible to it. Having your whole team fluent in it will overcome early operational hurdles and allow it to more quickly become an accepted and supported part of your supported platform for your team that will enable the business to use it to its fullest.

We use Oracle Data Guard as a backup tool, but not for data replication. Data Guard is not suited for real-time data replication in our non-normalized reporting database nor for the database we are using for our upgrade project, as Data Guard is not able to transform data and is not able to synchronize data into different schemas, which is necessary for our project. Additionally, our project database is on Oracle 12g not 11i: I am not 100% sure Data Guard is able to replicate from 11i to 12g

PIMCore is Digital Platform making it single source of truth for many upstream and downstream system.
is just PIM and its doing PIM job properly but PimCore is much more than this. AEM is too costly and can't be affordable for many small and mid size companies

Have never had any issues with scaling Oracle GoldenGate itself, however Oracle GoldenGate Monitor does have scaling issues, but with Oracle GoldenGate now able to be monitored by Oracle Enterprise Manager, this is no longer an issue, in my opinion.
Read full review Return on Investment In earlier versions, DDL support was limited as well as the need of primary key constraints in the source tables. This made me create partitions, sub-partitions, truncatations and perform other operations upon they are performed in source systems and I need to discuss with source system administrators and need to convince them to let them create primary keys for replicated tables. But both issues are solved now. Installation is straightforward, easy. Deployed everything within Oracle Data Integrator. Developing 1000 of ODI interfaces for loading into Operational Data Store took not more than 100 man/days. But, adding them to Golden Gate is taking not more than 5 man/days. Management Pack and VeriData are additional packs for your management and data verification needs. Read full review With the customers we have worked with, Pimcore has quite a positive impact on ROI. Pimcore systems have helped customers not only integrate their data but also improved data quality, greatly reduced their time to market and turn around time. Read full review ScreenShots
