Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Database

We use it for everything such as Student Information System, Finance, Budget Management,Data Warehouse, Inventory Tracking and Customized SOA Applications.
It is used by the whole organization.
It addresses our businesses needs for storing and retrieving mission critical data. We are predominantly an Oracle shop with many applications that are either from Oracle or dependent on Oracle. We like to keep our DB/App infrastructure stack on the same vendor whenever possible.
  • Availability
  • Scalability
  • Security
  • Flexibility
  • It can be difficult to diagnose performance issues.
  • The licensing is expensive and hard to understand.
  • There's a big learning curve for someone who's just starting out.
  • It consolidates our overall IT strategy into oracle dominant platform meaning we have app servers, peoplesoft, web logic and database servers all served by the same vendor.
  • Oracle cloud strategies allow our organization to offload some of our applications to be managed by the third party.
Oracle is natural choice because our application servers are all Oracle based.
There are some vendors that require SQL Servers but that's for smaller applications and managed by the third party.
It is appropriate where large amount of data is to be stored and managed.
