I have this quote in my mind, but I don#t remember where it is coming from:
"what does a support guy need to know? He queries the bug database and the rest
Can anybody name the source?

Betreff : Re: Oracle Support Getting Worse?
The maximum time I have spent in Oracle SR's is running RDA even for a network
latency issue where server to server in PAAS is taking 15000+ msec. I was
asking dude! Can I get a hold of some network SME? Hope Larry understands that
there is a huge drop in the support quality.

It depends on your CSI.
If your CSI is for cloud services, you'll get the cloud support portal.
Everything is then routed through there. E.g. you can't file a database SR for
"ora-600 or internal errors" and all those familiar categories anymore. You
can't choose products, either. It's all routed differently.

Please define cloud support: The support for cloud specific issues or
support for customers in the cloud?

Agreed on this push to the cloud. That said, I will say that (so far) I have
found the cloud support to be very good when I have needed it.

Oracle seems to have no more interest in on-premise Oracle Databases. Even
those that have active support contracts.
The move-to-cloud express order is the new mantra. Those who stay on this
wrecked ship should promptly ask for a rescue.

My impression is that Oracle support analysts' main aim is to get the SR off
their queue and on to your's, so they will always take the option of asking for
more information/alert logs/RDA output/etc, however unnecessary. Following the
sun just gives them an opportunity to do that every few hours.

I agree mostly a hit and miss but a lot of times a miss. I have found that the
Enterprise Manager team and Golden Gate team have MUCH better responses. The
database team however is usually bad. Often they will first respond with some
dumb questions that I have already answered in the description of my problem.
They will often do this for the first couple days. I recently had an SR open
Serv2 that went over a month with no response. I called three times to get
escalated and have the manager call me back, no one ever did. Got my account
manager involved and was still getting ignored. So frustrating.

Well, from my experience working with Oracle Support has always been pretty hit
and miss. Some SRs get resolved pretty quickly, while others sit idle for days
and don't get escalated when I call in and request an escalation. I would have
gotten canned quite a while ago if that is how I treated my customers.

I believe Oracle support is going seriously down hill.
We opened a case (ODA patching) yesterday around 1130. Sev 1, production node
After 3.5 hours, no response, we called and escalated. They transferred it to
someone else, and he asked for more information.
Their first suggestion of something to try was this AM at 403. About 15 hours
after we opened the SR.
I am thinking asking for a refund of our oracle support payments would be
