Support for parallel query execution for oracle databases

I would like to highlight lack of parallel processing/query parallelism in SI database queries. We have SI database of huge size (>1TB). Our whole database is an industry grade RAC cluster with multiple cores. Yet one of the recurrent problems that we face is slow query execution at database level. 


After further analyzing, we found that it is not the database that is causing bottleneck, the application is not taking advantage of query level parallel processing offered by oracle.


Same application queries were executed in drastically low time with help of parallel hints. Unfortunately, when I looked in file, I found that all the queries were obsolete referring to oracle 8i/9i. 


Can you please explain why SI/SFG is not leveraging query level parallelism offered by Oracle? Same issue is not also addressed in SI 6. If resolved, it would be drastically helpful to customers like us which have huge databases
