So, I'm sure everyone on this list understands the costs involved in standing up an Oracle database (especially if you have to factor in EE, DR, DG, etc.). With the economy the way it is an money being a commodity in short supply, I find that I am losing EVERY new application to SQL Server. Granted there are times when SQL Server is a better fit and I have steered two applications to SQL Server because I felt it was a better fit; however, how do I reel in the ones that really should be on Oracle. Trying to sell a $1 million dollar solution that SQL Server can cover for a few hundred thousand is killing me.
