PowerBuilder (PB) is not database management software; it is application development software.

Oracle Applications and SAP are ERP products. Very large, complex, and expensive products.

Are you sure your PB performance issues are not database application design and query tuning issues?

For database managment software look at Oracle Enterprise Manager, OEM, often now just referred to as EM.
