Pros: Oracle is the object-relational database engine most used worldwide.

It can run on all platforms, from a PC to a supercomputer. It is a super complete DBMS, with a high degree of performance, stability and scalability, supports all the functions expected of a server is a very complete database design language (PL / SQL) that allows implementing "active" designs , with triggers and stored procedures, with a fairly powerful declarative referential integrity. It allows to implement the security of the database efficiently and effectively through the management of users, roles and passwords. It allows the use of partitions to improve efficiency, replication and even certain versions support the administration of distributed databases. The server can be run on a multitude of operating systems. The great support that the organization offers its users. It has tools that allow the database administrator to perform its function efficiently and effectively. It has tools that make the backup of the database very simple. Great capacity to restore the database and very fast recovery, in addition to having a wide type of data which facilitates the design of the database

Cons: What I like least is that it is a bit expensive. Another problem is the need for adjustments. A common mistake is to think that it is enough to install Oracle on a server and directly plug in client applications. A misconfigured Oracle can be desperately slow. Misconfigured Oracle can be desperately slow.

Overall: Really for me it has been very satisfactory to develop applications with this DBMS, because it has made the work more pleasant and simple, besides having the peace of mind that the database is very secure

Pros: - Allows the management of relational databases from very simple to large volumes of data.

- Because it is relational, the PL / SQL language is used.

- It is agile, consistent and robust.

- It has all the functionalities that a DBA would like to have for the management, control and performance of the databases.

- A well-configured cluster with Oracle is practically invincible.

- Oracle is currently bringing all its products and services to the cloud, that is, based on Internet.

- The graphic tools used with Oracle are intuitive and easy to use, practically They do all the work.

- The tools also allow you to intone databases, improve performance, give you alerts.

- Allows to make backup copies, partitions, manage users to control the security of information.

Cons: - An Oracle license is very expensive, so it is not accessible to everyone.

- Staff with knowledge in Oracle is equally expensive, information costs money!

- It is difficult to access information related to the driver, its configuration and maintenance.

- For DBA without experience, a configuration is complicated by the amount of details that must be consider.

- If you do not have a graphical interface to work with Oracle, you should have knowledge in commands to work in consoles or terminals.

Overall: I have learned a lot using Oracle, it would be great if it were not so expensive, as well as being certified in it. It is important to know that a well-crafted database will work in any database manager, Oracle can not solve faults or problems in a poorly-related database

Pros: There are many advantages of Oracle Database, I can say that its performance and use of resources for me is of a competent efficiency since it is a multiplatform system.

Its data dictionary is extensive giving extraordinary support to the programming language, thanks to the fact that 80% of Oracle's internal codes are the same as those established in the operating system platforms, which allows creating data and tables quickly and easily according to the needs you want to achieve in a company or organization.

The Forms, SQLFORMS are very simple and effective for the design of screens, the best of all is that, after defining the form you can work on it without generating codes, this at user level is very useful.

It can be used both for personal information and for large data stores.

is run in high and low range equipment, this is a great advantage.

As I said at the beginning there are many advantages of Oracle to create a reliable and secure database.

Cons: Just as it has a simple and adaptable interface, it's necessary to have a broad knowledge of programming and creation of tables to take advantage of the entire box of functionality that Oracle has. It's worth it.

Overall: Oracle Database is a powerful, flexible and enriched tool with unparalleled coding for database creation at different scales.

Pros: It is a very powerful database from the point of view of storage and development, I have used oracle in many aspects, as a database engine and for a large amount of data it is perfect because it handles high volume data efficiently, as well It provides the advantage of being able to develop with SQL ansi standard procedures and tasks that automate the management of data, the advantage of being able to run on any platform and with any development tool allows development projects to be carried out in the expected time, compatibility It is your biggest advantage

Cons: As a disadvantage I think that the way to handle the downloads of the connection drivers for the different platforms is a bit tedious since other databases do not require so much protocol to download the drivers. it may be necessary in some cases to document about the new functionalities because the examples provided by the provider are not so clear and / or non-existent

Overall: My experience with Oracle has been as administrator and developer which gives me an overview of the projects and has allowed me, thanks to the tools it provides, to achieve projects that with other database managers could not have been successfully completed, that is, the multiple tools provided by oracle are very helpful although the examples and the documentation seem scarce

Pros: I have been using Oracle Database since the version 10g. I have had a chance to work on several other database platforms like Sybase, MS SQL and MySQL. Oracle database comes with tons of features which many of the other databases don't have. I am not sure if i can say that other way round for other databases i have used.

It's quite complicated to learn and definitely complicated to master, but it provides you with enough tools to do complicated tasks quite easily.

You can also code your application programming languages using it's native PL/SQL language. Oracle Database also let's you make calls to Java programs and embed some Java inside the PL/SQL.

Cons: It's costly! It's quite costly if you are using it for small businesses. Some of the very sophisticated features are only available for enterprise version of Oracle Database which is quite costly. Oracle is very price oriented, so be careful about the budget when you chose Oracle Database.

Overall: I used Oracle database for programming application logics for a technician management applications for a client. I also used Oracle database to support database layer for several of my clients in my career so far.

Pros: Every Oracle job I have worked has had a solid

proactive team that is well read on standards and best practices

and has many years of experience.

Oracle is definitely one of the best implementations of RDBMS. It manages memory very efficiently and can handle complex JOIN operations which easilly cripple MySQL and MsSQL. Oracle has a great Architecture, because it is very easy to organise different applications data very well. I think the best plus for me is the SQL Engine that Oracle possess, it is very advanced, making it the only database to operate a data warehouse! Running complex queries on Oracle is just easy.Other features like Materialized Views, PL/SQL e.t.c. make Oracle have value for money

Cons: Unintuitive performance tuning tools, and finicky optimizer.

SQL*Plus with a built-in tabular format output; useful for rows that span across many lines. No, Grid Control SQL Output just doesn't cut it; it's a static output of the entire table. It doesn't have the powerful SQL*Plus commands.

Overall: It is our main software work platform that we commercialize. We have been using this tool for more than 15 years.

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: Being a oracle database administrator I like to manage and work on unique technologies that are available, like Real application cluster,Golden gate,RMAN, Datapump and its is really challenging at times when we receive performance related issues. It provides high level security on data where we can recover lost data or corrupt data using various technologies like RMAN,DATAPUMP,DATAGUARD,RAC.

ASM makes the database maintenance even more simple while adding new disks into storage or adding datafiles. Goldengate can be used to configure data replication between different vender databases and OEM 12C and above can be used to monitor other vendor databases and OS alerts too.The Cloud enviornment makes it look cooler.

Cons: I don't find any cons as such as but the ORACLE-SUPPORT response is slow sometimes even on high priority issues and we need to raise a call to the manager

Overall: I had great experience working on different versions of oracle databases and the technologies like Goldengate,RAC,ASM,OEM,RMAN,DATAPUMP. I highly recommend my friends to learn oracle db administration as it is very useful if chosen as a career.

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: I have been working as a Database Administrator since 2011, Oracle is by far the best relational database I have used. It works better on unix-like systems, it is very fast, has lots of parameters to tune to your specific needs and it also has a lot of features like partinioning, high availability soluctions like RAC and Dataguard that make this the best database on the market for mission critical systems.

Cons: The online documentation needs improvement, sometimes it is incomplete, there are not enough examples for some features. Customer Support is erratic, sometimes it´s great and sometimes not so much, it depends on the support tech.

Overall: I have used oracle for Datawarehouse, transactional systems, golden gate replications, among others. It is the core database of the company I currently work for.

Pros: Oracle Database is always a good options. Its very consistent, stable and scalability: It´s 12c version have a new funcionality wich is the container database. We can create one or more container in one same database. In the same instalation we can manage more than one container of database, this is very helpfull for applications databases division.

Cons: The container always is create in a closed state, after the creation of container, is necesary alter the status to change it to open state and even when you create a container with a administrator user (no sys user), is necesary give permissions DBA to that user because it doesn´t inherit that permissions

Overall: The options to have only one server installed with one Oracle Database with N containers

Pros: I have been working on database technologies since more than a decade now. Oracle database is the most powerful relational database in market with tonnes of features. If you buy enterprise edition of the software, you get features like data guard, Oracle Enterprise Manager for free.

Cons: Oracle database can be overly complicated for someone who has worked with other database vendors like Microsoft or SAP. Also, Oracle database is costly in terms of license price compared to other database options.

Overall: I have worked with Oracle database since almost a decade now. I have implemented small, medium to very large implementations of Oracle database in my career. i have been extremely satisfied with sophisticated features that Oracle database provides.

Pros: the best database manager that in my opinion exists, is super robust, super stable, since I never use an application I dropped it, handles millions of records in a matter of seconds which other handlers do if they collapse instead oracle any amount of millions of records the menja and processed as without greater difficulty

Cons: get a point against the truth is that I do not see it because for me the handler is the best of the best ... for something I give 5 stars

Overall: One of the clients that has the company I work in is a very large bank which manages millions and millions of transactions per day and had already tried other handlers and none of them worked or failed concurrency or memory but since we used oracle both the customer as the developers are happy

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.

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.

Cons: The least I like about this is that every time you migrate to a new Oracle DB version you have to modify some DB programs ir order to adjust performance.

I have been using Oracle for 10 years now. The best DBMS.

Pros: Creating views, tables, mvs and stored procedures are easy. SQL scripting is easy. There are so many Oracle documents which covers almost all the questions about the database.

Cons: Customer service is not very good, especially when we did a oracle cloud migration project the support was not very useful and there was downtime.

Overall: I am a BI consultant, my life revolves around the data. First step of data analysis is writing sql queries and verifying the data. Oracle is the best DBMS that i have used

Pros: This program has lots of different features and ways to organize, and pull specific data. I like that you can customize the reports, and the search features are easy to customize as well. I find that they provide a comprehensive list of all different information available on our employees.

Cons: The software is not intuitive and takes a lot of training to navigate and understand. Our managers are constantly confused, despite multiple training sessions, and the lack of intuitiveness in the menus can often be frustrating.

Overall: Organization and easy access to employee files and administration. Our yearly reviews are also through oracle.

Pros: It is easy to program our stored procedures. The PLSQL is designed for its practical and easy. There is a large community of developers that help us with problems that we can not solve.

Cons: The name of the objects can not exceed 30 characters in the 10g version.

This makes the names of the objects difficult to understand.

The execution plan is not very understandable. And this hinders a quick intervention to modify our queries.

I am an end-user but Oracle is the way to go for medium to large businesses.

Cons: The license version of Oracle is very complex, you'd need an expert to handle it. Also it lacks a GUI like Sql Server from microsoft.

Overall: I was working on a mission critical application and we choose Oracle as back end over sql server. Initially everyone was hesitant to opt for oracle but later on it proved to be more efficient than sql server for the application in terms of performance.

Pros: Oracle is a powerful database manager. Very robust in the handling of data and information security. Powerful for consulting and updating data. Since its launch it has not stopped updating. Ideal for business solutions of big companies that handle great volumes of information. It is compatible with several operating environments.

Cons: Oracle is a powerful tool but high cost. Software documentation in something difficult to obtain if you do not have the original version wirh license. It requires some training and experience in use for its use, because it is not a didactic and intuitive work tool, and it is not easy to learn. It is necesary taht support non-relational versions of databases, such as those used today.

Overall: This database manager has been used in my work for several years. You get yours updates and user support. I do not hesitate to recommend it because it is a highly robust system.

Pros: Oracle is the object-relational database engine most used worldwide.

It can run on all platforms, from a PC to a supercomputer.

It allows to implement "active" designs, with triggers and stored procedures, with a fairly powerful declarative referential integrity.

The server software can run on a multitude of operating systems.

Oracle is the database with more orientation towards INTERNET.

Cons: Oracle's biggest problem is its price. Even the Oracle Personal licenses are excessively expensive, in my opinion. Another problem is the need for adjustments to a poorly configured Oracle can be very slow.

Overall: is the most complete object-relational database management system that exits

Overall: Many improvements have made it easy to use over the years. Entry is less time consuming now

Pros: I used to use Oracle at my old job, now we use another product. Oracle always seemed to run better. Currently, our DBAs are constantly tweaking our plans and queries to get acceptable performance. We never had to do that with Oracle.

Cons: Too expensive. That's the main reason the new job uses another product. We are small and cannot afford it.

Overall: I think it's the best DB out there.

Very stable to store big amount of data and let us manage great amount of users as wel.

Pros: I like that this software is a workhorse and really is capable of everything. I also like that it is customizable to the needs of the company using it.

Cons: It really takes a lot of specific training and experience to get to know this system really well. There are a lot of little caveats and silly rules to follow to get things where they need to be. Once you learn the tricks of the trade it's no problem but it is not intuitive or user-friendly at all.

Overall: We use Oracle every day throughout our entire company. Customer database maintenance, ordering product, processing payments all happen through Oracle.

Pros: The overwhelming capabilities! We stored terabytes of weather data in our Oracle database. It was a complex project, due to the amounts of data, but easy to use once I figured it out.

Cons: There are many, many levels of complexities to Oracle. I think it is the nature of the beast, so that is part of the complexity.

Pros: Oracle Database aligns with the topics you learned in your Intro to Databases class. It has tables, columns, keys, indexes, triggers, and all the things you want to avoid in your modern applications.

Cons: It is big, resource-intensive, expensive, hard to maintain, hard to patch, unreliable, impossible to distribute without an equally cumbersome and expensive add-on, and it keeps your applications mired in the past.

Overall: I got a working database for my application from this software, but there could be so much more for that price using modern concepts.

In my case, Safe, reliable and robust tool...

Pros: I learned SQL back in college on the Oracle platform but since have only used it for 2 clients, both enterprise level. Oracle is extremely powerful, locking at the cell level, with triggers, functions, transaction SQL. It is supremely optimized and can handle millions upon millions of records without issue. Love it.

Cons: When something is this good, it'll be spendy so it's not a solution that you'd use on small projects. If it's an option though, don't hesitate to choose.

Overall: Although expensive, the Oracle Database is extremely powerful and optimized. I've seen it easily handle over 20 million records without issue. Highly recommended.

If there are other things to be signed, I just sign it through Oracle. It's very convenient

Cons: I remember changing my passwords too many times. Sometimes, the information are not loaded, so I need to refresh the page.

Overall: I love it! I can easily access important HR-related docs and forms.

Pros: Oracle is being used across the organization. Our product has been built based upon Oracle features. For online transactions, read consistency, performance, recovery and other tools are the key features. Our product is quite complex and quite heavy on processing. We run POC for similar products but those are nowhere near to Oracle like Maria DB, Postgre, SQL server, MySQL etc.

Cons: Unexpected LOAD due to features - If some parallel server parameters are not fixed wisely, the system can overload server/DB and DB will stick.
