Export/import is slower, doesn't support point in time recovery, doesn't integrate well with media management software, etc. On the other hand, export/import can restore individual objects (like a single table or index).

For the best recovery strategy, it is best to use both RMAN and some export/import strategy.

Please also read chapter 1 of the RMAN Users Guide: "Why Use RMAN?"

Best regards.
