"The database environment needs to be cheaper. By making it less expensive, Oracle would be more competitive with other database vendors."
"The consumption of memory and the client memory has been increased exorbitantly in the most recent past."
"The initial setup is a bit complex."
"We believe that the usability could be improved, especially within the data lakehouse. We found content management to be a little bit more simpler within the GUI part."
