Develop, create, innovate a database quickly and efficiently is achieved with Oracle DataBase.

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

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.

Oracle Database: Still a Leader in DBMS and SQL Databases

Great experience using Oracle in academia. Concepts such as SQL tuning and optimization, indexing, cloud integration, ER-Design, SQL injection attacks, ... can be effectively demonstrated to students using this RDBMS.

PROS

Oracle Database has been my number one choice when teaching enterprise application development. Although it is a bit heavy and not that easy to deploy, students can get a lot of advantages learning a highly demanded DBMS platform that really adds a lot on their resume. The SQL concepts are easily tested against the database using the SQL Developer software. Moreover, JDBC drivers allow seamless integrations and very high performance when using Java to connect to the database on the client side, or when relying on the Java Servlets and Java Server Pages middleware on the Application server. Using Oracle with Java based technologies was definitely a very compatible option that simplifies and speeds up the development process.

CONS

As stated, Oracle is not very easy to install and configure by novice developers. It is a bit heavy on low end devices.

Reason for choosing Oracle Database

Oracle is the leader in RDBMS platforms and facilitating its use by CS students would add a lot to their skills and career opportunities.

Oracle Database - Daily Use

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

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.

Oracle Database: the big name in relational and cloud DBMS.

We developed a lot of Java-based desktop/enterprise applications with Oracle in the back-end. Customer support was amazing in addition to the vast amount of resources available online to tackle almost any issue in installation, setup, development and deployment. Way ahead of other rival products such as MS-SQL Server, MySQL, DB2.

PROS

The advanced relational database management features from transaction management, SQL query optimization, concurrency control, security in design, to cloud integration to mention few make Oracle a way ahead of competition in the RDBMS cloud database market.

CONS

Oracle is a bit expensive with a complicated licensing process. This is justified in return of the smartest DBMS algorithms available but still some more flexible cloud licensing strategies would make the system much better accessible to developers and administrators.

Reasons for switching to Oracle Database

The scalability of the database and the resilience of the algorithms available in Oracle makes it on the top of the list when selecting a production relational database management system.

World's best RDBMS database

Since I've been an Oracle DBA for about ten years, I greatly appreciate how well Oracle Database manages the deployment of the majority of the data for the company I work for. It also enables stable backup and storage of vast volumes of data and supports a number of programming languages. Oracle offers PL/SQL, a complicated but effective query language that is not simple. The world's most potent characteristics include data auditing, backup and recovery, data encryption, as well as the capability for data analysis. Companies that use Oracle databases pay for technical support services, which are provided by highly knowledgeable and competent Oracle professionals who are available 24/7. This implies that you will never be without a solution to a problem or an issue. Cost is by far Oracle database's largest drawback.

PROS

Oracle is the #1 reliable RDBMS database in the world. It is fast, reliable and secured. It is the gold standard in the database world. To scale how good is a database product, it will be placed in front of Oracle database and compare with it

CONS

1. Oracle is not Windows operating system friendly. It is usually built on Linux, which is not user friendly for most people. Anyone who wants to become an Oracle expert will take many years to become a senior level developer or administrator2. very expensive, not for personal usage

Reason for choosing Oracle Database

Well, the choice between Oracle and SQL Server is typically made at the top levels of management. But in my opinion, Oracle is still preferable to Sql Server in the majority of situations.
