Oracle Java Cloud is especially appropriate for moderate to complex Java applications. Due to BYOL licensing, it is also works well when you are planning to do dev and test in-house and then deploy it on Oracle Java Cloud. It is not well suited for simple Java applications due to the cost of Oracle Java Cloud. Simple applications don't need the fully managed aspect of Oracle Java Cloud.

Read full review Pros Configuring and then deploying Java applications is straightforward and can be done very easily. Management console for Oracle Java Cloud is integrated with the rest of the IT stack, making it easy to figure out performance bottlenecks in Java applications and Java PaaS. Read full review Reporting and Dashboards are thorough and can show a wealth of important data to inform and scale processes. It's helpful in a high volume sales cycle to be able to quickly identify weak points in performance and productivity so that adjustments can be made. Highly customizable. We are able to customize just about everything which allows us to track very specific things and in theory create better efficiency. Parent/Child account hierarchy exists which is helpful. Contact records can be associated with multiple accounts and opportunities. This, in theory, should minimize duplicates and mismanagement of contacts. Console helps a lot with data nesting. Having a fairly comprehensive look at an account without searching through various tabs and sections speeds up an otherwise cumbersome platform.

This builds off a number of things I have already mentioned. This question completely depends on the competence of the developer. This makes the user friendliness of the UI 50/50. However if you have the ability I would say it is quite UI friendly.

Salesforce's support is top-notch. They have subject-matter experts that are accessible at all times to address needs as they come up. They let you know in advance when there are system updates and enhancements so that you are prepared for upcoming changes. I've never had an issue that wasn't addressed immediately when reaching out for support.

is great for Java applications where you are using other Google components already, for example Google GCP, Google BigQuery, etc. Redhat,
, and Pivotal CloudFounder are great when the application is very complex and includes components that are Java and non-Java based (Python, etc). Amazon AWS is more difficult to configure than Oracle Java Cloud - Oracle Java Cloud has simpler UI.

We were previously using an older version prior to it becoming Salesforce Lightning Platform so we were well adverse on the advantages of using a CRM, to begin with. It made sense to convert to Salesforce Lightning Platform after we were given a free trial of the platform. Certain reps were chosen to experiment with it and from there a decision was made to move forward. We've been customers ever since.
