The best DBMS for SAP... before HANA

Unfortunately, for a few years SAP has been slowly transitioning out other databases as their most recent version of the ERP works exclusively with their database.

Pros

Even when being competitors, SAP ERP and Oracle Database was the best to pair up for a long time. Among the different databases I've worked with as an SAP developer during my career, Oracle has been the most trustworthy and easy to work with when doing native SQL.

Cons

Licensing is expensive, as is often the case with Oracle and SAP.

Overall it is a good database for clients whose applications needs to handle the heavy load of data.

Pros

Oracle database supports PL/SQL which allows user to write complex queries in procedures/functions which relatively gives better performance.

Oracle database can be better equipped and scaled for heavy load applications.

we have lot of documentation in the internet for oracle database usage.

Oracle Drivers(API) are available for all the Programming languages which makes easy to connect database from the code.

It has reliable security configuration which makes database administrator life easier.

This is platform independent and can be installed in any OS(Windows, Linux ).

It supports CSV, Excel and Plain Text files for Uploading.

It also supports inbuilt AQ (Advanced queue) which can be used for event based applications.

Cons

Licensing cost is not greatly affordable for smaller size companies.

Query performance is slow for tables which has millions of rows unless you optimize(tune) the query.

Oracle Customer Service response is not that friendly.

Oracle helped our business use secure filesharing, but wasn't great. We stored a lot of stuff on their database but I am overall not a fan. It was helpful to our company, but I feel like there HAS to be bigger and better and more user-friendly products out there doing a better job.

Pros

Had to use it for work. It was ok for filesharing, but I feel like half the time it didn't work anyway.

Cons

DEFINITELY needs a facelift in terms of its GUI. I thiiiink it needs to be more secure too, I feel like we had issues with security but I could be wrong. Seems old and outdated and like it should have already been replaced and made obsolete by some sexy new Google or startup product.
