“Our research, based on interviews with several customers around the globe, shows that those Oracle ADW customers have achieved approximately 63% reduced total cost of operations, while increasing the productivity of data analytics teams by 27%…”—Carl Olofson, IDC

“Other cloud providers and DBMS vendors are attempting on-prem cloud services. Those services are, in general, more limited, less mature…as a result, they all lack most of the on-prem features of Oracle’s Cloud@Customer offerings and do not, as of this writing, align to the Oracle Autonomous Database feature set. In fact, no other provider yet offers autonomous capabilities or a full public cloud on-prem that Oracle currently offers. More importantly, there are no known fully automated, fully managed Oracle Database offerings available for on-prem deployment other than Autonomous Database on Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer.”

“The objective of IT automation is to remove IT from the day-to-day workflows and allow the lines of business to work directly to define and mine the data that matters. Oracle is cool again.” –David Floyer, Wikibon

“ADW has an incredibly rich ecosystem of database types, models, tools, and applications that are second to none. This is why Snowflake melts when compared to the Autonomous Data Warehouse.” –Marc Staimer, Founder of DC Consulting and Wikibon Analyst

“We were truly impressed that Oracle Autonomous Database is rated far higher on Gartner’s Cloud Database report than offerings from AWS, Azure, Google, and Snowflake. Compared to the other Cloud Database offerings, Oracle is off the charts.” —Dave Vellante, CEO, Wikibon

Read the Wikibon article

“Wikibon believes that the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse platform is the best platform currently available to achieve these objectives….The scale of this solution is unique in the IT industry….The AWS approach is slow and cumbersome, requiring processes to be created, monitored, and maintained by IT folk—the antithesis of democratization.”

KuppingerCole logo

The leading security-focused industry analyst research firm, KuppingerCole, has just released its vendor ratings for Cloud Database and Big Data security and Oracle Autonomous Database is ranked Number One overall—while AWS and Microsoft Azure are tied for 7th place. This marks the third consecutive year that Oracle is ranked Number One in overall database security.

“But the company doesn't stop there...Oracle announced major new self-service capabilities in its Autonomous Data Warehouse, which bring the same level of data democratization to business analytics as well...Needless to say, all these capabilities do not require any additional data transformation or export to a different data store, avoiding IT-related time delays. Meanwhile, sensitive business data remains in a single location, secured against a broad range of external and internal threats and is highly available. To me, this looks like a Zero Friction situation!” -- Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst, KuppingerCole

CRN's Products of the Year awards for 2020 honor the very best partner-friendly products and services that launched over the past year—as chosen by solution providers themselves. In the category of Big Data, Oracle Autonomous Database was selected as the Overall Winner for 2020, topping Snowflake, MariaDB SkySQL Database-as-a-Service, Couchbase and Splunk.

Cloud Wars logo

“So those differentiators for Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse—better, hardened security; a fully converged autonomous data-warehouse service that greatly simplifies management and maintenance; plus nonstop self-tuning, self-monitoring and patching—are all big pluses in Oracle’s favor. But on top of those advantages, customers are also seeing big cost savings when they go with Oracle…”

“While Oracle’s competition—which often still requires extensive expertise, third-party tools or retrieving data manually from external databases—has work to do to better address the needs of non-technical personas, Oracle is there now.” –Mark Peters, ESG

“This can be viewed as democratizing organizational data warehouses, making it easy for pretty-much-anyone to get data in and value out…business users are now directly connected to the data rather than one step removed from it and can leverage the new tools in easy and familiar ways: There are drag-and-drop UIs and low-code interfaces that simplify everything from data loading, transformation, and analysis to building machine learning models….Competitive approaches still often demand expertise, may use additional third-party tools (which incurs costs and requires learning), and can require manually retrieving data from external databases...all of which conspires to keep the non-technical consumers of the data warehouses’ riches at arm's length from the production side of things”

“Enabling data analysts, citizen data scientists, and business users to create and analyze their own data sets with self-service tools avoids IT bottlenecks and significantly improves their productivity. This is exactly what Oracle has done with its enhancements to ADW,” said Bradley Shimmin, Chief Analyst, Omdia.

“Oracle Autonomous Database in all its flavors continues without a response from competitors even after three years in the market.” –Holger Mueller, Constellation

Read the Constellation report: The Automation Imperative Materialized: Oracle Autonomous Database (PDF)

“Rather than scale down and run smaller databases, customers need to realize that overall size is not a limiting factor when running Database 21c in OCI, making it a prime destination for cloud database consolidation. For example, the largest AWS database compute instance is roughly equal to the smallest Exadata Cloud Service X8M (ExaCS) database. Oracle can then scale ExaCS to 32x larger than the largest AWS offering on the compute side.”

“Forrester identified Oracle as one of the graph database vendors that leads the pack for property and RDF graph model support. They gave Oracle its highest rating (5/5) on graph analytics, data security, app development, workloads, and high availability and disaster recovery.”

Patrick Moorhead logo

“They took this to the next level…Oracle is raising the game, once again…The big picture today compared to Redshift or Snowflake, they can’t offer that right now…I saw it with my own eyes and it was real data…it is amazing…This is one database that auto-magically optimizes 8 or 9 different types of data. AWS has 16 different databases and the enterprise actually has to wrangle that data.”

“The four key advantages for ADW that we highlighted in this research—true autonomy, serverless elasticity, one converged database, and democratized data management—are not available from AWS, Snowflake, Google Cloud, Azure, Alibaba, or other vendors in our cloud coverage universe…the unique capabilities make it a "must-buy" for any organization wanting to shorten the time from data to decision”

“Oracle Corp. has been on something of a roll in 2021. The database giant received a boost from Gartner Inc. just before the start of the new year in a report that ranked the firm high among database management leaders for its ability to leverage on-premises strength in hybrid cloud deployment. In March, the company made headlines with a well-received string of updates to its Autonomous Data Warehouse offering. The latest releases focused on simpler loads and transforms, autonomous machine learning models and facilitating citizen data science.”

Futurum Research

“Oracle ADW: forging an innovative data warehouse approach…I see Oracle making competitive headway by emphasizing Oracle ADW’s increased reliability and security capabilities while also reducing costs, especially in relation to rival solutions centered on SQL cloud data warehousing methods such as SAP Business Warehouse, Amazon RedShift, IBM DW solutions, and Snowflake…I view Oracle’s new ADW enhancements as empowering organizations to attain quicker results and accelerate actionable insights while also saving expenses and resource overhead.”
