Pros: I like how there are a plethora of resources to help you achieve your goals through the software. It is easy to get started once you have some coding knowledge. It also can handle very large databases which is idea for any real world project.

Cons: It can be hard to implement certain features and some features seem to be missing or incomplete. It can take a few lines of code to do something matlab or python can do very easily.

Use daily for processing orders & checking inventory.

Pros: Customization options, lots of functions. easy to use - much faster since there was an update as well!

Cons: It's not exactly aesthetically pleasing but in the large scheme of things not sure if that really matters. It use to run slow and lag but since the update performs so much faster.

Cons:
Learning curve to maintain the software changes from version to version rapidly, Online resources for Developers are somehow expensive and the same for students there is no educational package for students

Pros: The best part is the availability of many options for users which makes it very easy to use. It has functions such as full torrence and high performance. It can be used with small as well as large projects. The backup facility is amazing and the learning curve is amazing. It is most stable database I ever seen.

Cons: It's very costly think before you use. Not all businesses need this but it makes the task easy for those who can afford it.

Overall: As I am not very used to SQL queries for every small task, oracle database made it easy for me. I have used it in all projects based on webservices and it proved to be robust . It can handle enormous data with so much fancy functionality. My team just love it and so does me.

Pros: The high availability features like RAC, the replication features like GoldenGate, the different reporting capabilities using views and DBA_ views, the manageability using Oracle Enterprise Manager, all these make it the most loved Database flavor among its customers. Other flavors of databases are dwarfed when compared to its functionality.

Cons: Oracle RDBMS gives too much importance to data consistency, and can sometimes look complex when trying to solve simple recovery issues. That is one reason why some customers are afraid to use this otherwise powerful software.

Overall: Oracle RDBMS is a very vast topic, and it has been an adventure for me to explore its features and how it can be used to simplify the business needs of my customers.

I use Oracle everyday to communicate with other departments.

Pros: Has a lot of functionality. There is a lot you can do with Oracle. It helps remind people when changes are coming and keep all information up to date in one location.

Cons: The interface is not very intuitive. There are several times where you have to click on multiple things so that you can get where you want. Also, you have to know specifically what you want and what it is called in Oracle to get anywhere. Additionally, the interface isn't very aesthetically pleasing, which makes it look old school.

Pros: Perhaps the most well tested relational database for large installations. It can handle a huge amount of data and perform well under load
Reliability!!! Without a doubt, the Oracle database series (I think it's up to Oracle 12c now) is the `godfather' of commercial transaction and government RDBMS software. With it's different version releases, the software has been around close to 40 years!!! It's the originsl flagship product of the Oracle corporation.

Cons: It's expensive. So, if you don't need to support a lot of data and transactions per second you should seriously consider a cheaper option like MySQL or a nosql database like MongoDB.

Installation Time per individual instance!!! I've automated the whole thing from a fresh install of a Linux Operating system and it still takes at least ~3.5 hours to install it, although I've done it in as little as 2.5 hours, but it depends on where the package repository is, and how version control is being handle! (POINT THE MATTER IS, IT CAN TAKE VERY LONG TIME FOR MERE INSTALLATION) On Windows operating systems it can take up to 8 hours or more, your first time around!

Pros: 1. Within the Oracle databases, the application can use multiple schemas.
2. Database tables are assigned to table spaces such that their extent size reflects the size of the table
3.Ability to create all functions and procedures inside Packages [No stand Alone Implementation], and those which define the interface of the package to the outside can be declared in the package header
4. By using Dynamic SQL we¿ve replaced bulky queries by input based optimized queries.
5. Using Oracle¿s ¿Advanced Queuing¿ we implemented Asynchronous calls in the database enabling us to run processes in the background, when a separate process got executed in the foreground.

Cons: These days capabilities like Oracle are being provided by other open source DB's like Postgres etc at a very nominal cost.

Pros: Reputation, job security....I also like the product because it seems pretty stable. Also one of the best databases I've supported

Cons: I think Orale licensing is too expensive. I also believe Oracle make the rules as they go. I would like to see the pricing of Oracle too decrease.

Pros: User Friendliness is the best part of oracle database. We can have large installations and it will perform fine.

Cons: Costly than the others in market and installation times may be huge. It also requires a big partition allotted to it for best functionality.

Overall: I have worked on several projects on Java platform while using Struts2 framework. I always used Oracle for handling my databases because I have to select the best and at the same time the client needs must be taken care off. My first freelancer project was to normalise the database of a person and I did it with ease while importing the whole data to oracle. Trust me user friendly medium saves alot of effort which may seem unnecessary for basic tasks. In my view one should use Oracle for database handling if they do not want any complexities on their end.

Recommendations to other buyers: For smaller firms, it is not necessary to use Oracle as long the data is less and load is in control but once the load is more , Oracle is an only option. Larger firms must use Oracle because it is best in the market.

Pros: Powerful and scalable!

Cons: A lot of work to keep everything running - Enterprise-level resources.

Overall: My company is primarily an "Oracle Shop". We've used Oracle DB since before I started here (2001). When I started we were running Oracle 7. Over the years we've progressed in versions until today we are running 11G. I am very familiar with querying via SQL and thoroughly enjoy the Oracle environment. I am an end-user but Oracle is the way to go for medium to large businesses.

Recommendations to other buyers: Hire great Oracle DBA's, they are very important.
