"Love Oracle Enterprise Manager"

What do you like best?

Time savings, reduction of human error, don't need rare skills anymore, Centralized console for single point of management, Automated ("lights out") system administration

What do you dislike?

It is an incredibly complex and requires specialized skills to install and maintain. Simple functionality like one to many mapping of users to groups could be done which would be a useful feature to a DBA/Admin while adding new users. Recovery of logs needs to be more user-friendly. Whenever we face a system downtime issue, exact logs are a little difficult to find. It can get really tedious to point out the problem when looking at generic logs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has been robust, graphical and easy to use. We have been able to manage the security of users in a great way using OEM. Every user can be assigned to a group which is a useful feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I just know that we use Oracle Enterprise Manager because it is required by corporate

What Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution do you use?

"The need to have Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c"

What do you like best?

In the management of environments that are constituted by a very complex information technology infrastructure and with a wide variety of services and solutions (Oracle and other providers), it is important to consider obtaining an administration, management and security tool that presents a centralized approach and that assumes the responsibility of monitoring each of the components, services, systems and sessions, in addition to managing the status of servers, databases, backup process executions, replicas, etc., which supports administrators of databases and infrastructure in facilitating the centralization of solutions and identification of environmental incidents. This tool is Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c

What do you dislike?

The use of the tool in the simple management scenario, as presented by the manufacturer, has a friendly and simple interface, I consider it easy to learn, very intuitive and always guiding the user from the general to the specific, their Graphs are very useful in identifying components and services. However, when it comes to complex configurations in the development of monitoring processes, configuration of replicas, execution of planned works, configuration of alarm thresholds and their corresponding self-management it is required to incorporate advanced training to users and administrators by Oracle. University in addition to widely recommend the accompaniment and incorporation of specialized advice in the management of the tool and that endorses the certification of the platform and its processes. This causes incurring high additional costs for the use of the tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend the use of this tool in environments of any size and complexity, I have obtained benefits for its centralized approach, extensibility in the diversity of Oracle solutions and other manufacturers. It has an additional amount of benefits that simplify and optimize time and cost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I highly recommend the use of this tool in environments of any size and complexity, I have obtained benefits for its centralized approach, extensibility in the diversity of Oracle solutions such as RDBMS, OCR, Fusion Middleware, OEM Job Scheduler, load and performance reports generated by the AWR, ADDM, ASH viewers, domain scalability in cloud configurations and an additional amount of benefits that simplify and optimize time and cost of administration for the company.

"Database lifeline"

What do you like best?

The best part is we can manage the Oracle databases fro mthe dashboard itself , a lot of features , the more i explore the more i am amazed , The database query tuning is one feaure i have always used. If the queries are running slow or the application is sluggish, OEM is the first place we login ot find more insights. The patching features is really boon for DBA's , it helps us to manage the databases and keep them updated centrally. i also use it to monitor the applications like PeopleSoft , we have created Beacons that are used to monitor and check the login for The peopleSoft applications , we are managing hundreds of Oracle Databases and multiple PeopleSoft application instances using OEM

What do you dislike?

Intuitive clicking or drill down , like database performance analyzer does , i do not like the way information is presented in different tabs and links and navigation , i need to remember where i need to go to get what , i central drill down for complete information. Also the user interface is old and can be moreintuitive with minimum investment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please explore the product as it has many new feature in version 13

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OEM helps us for patching , perfromance tuning and database issue resolution , there are multiple places and scenarios this has helped us , we use for issue resoltion ,alert setup and proactive monitoring

"Oracle Enterprise Manager - Improving with age"

What do you like best?

I have worked with OEM for several years monitoring various versions of Oracle and other products. I like that they continue to improve it and make it easier to use. It is also easier now to monitor other products with add-ins to the tool.

What do you dislike?

OEM has a steep learning curve. Not every thing operates the exact same way. It takes time and effort to set it up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If Oracle is your primary platform, then this tool is a must. Not using it would be like driving your car without a dashboard. It was created initially for Oracle's Database engine, but now it can do so much more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OEM allows us to monitor our mission critical databases and servers. It allows us to be proactive by warning us of resource issues before they cause down time. It also helps us to tune poor performing code which is critical when processing large amounts of data.

"The best tool for integrating services and managing infrastructure components"

What do you like best?

It provides a web tool for control, monitoring and implementation, which facilitates these tasks since it is not necessary to install any additional product and can be done from anywhere with access to the network

What do you dislike?

Integrations with other Oracle products is relatively simple, if the goal is to integrate it with products from different vendors, it is likely to become very complicated or even not viable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to improve performance, the scalability and security of your platform implements integration with other Oracle Fusion Middleware components

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my opinion as a database administrator and the business intelligence platform of the company, the integration of Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g and Oracle Business Intelligence 11g allowed us to manage and monitor the performance of BI from the same environment. Likewise, we make it easy to configure, test, implement, monitor, install patches and allow continuous availability, with superior security, scalability and query performance.

"good for monitoring Oracle"

What do you like best?

I think my favorite part is the ability to set up alerts. Monitoring Top activity and the interface to run the SQL advisor are what I use the most though.

What do you dislike?

I need to learn or it needs to be easier to run thing from the command line. Would be nice is connectors to other programs/applications/etc. worked as well as the Oracle side does.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be advised it costs extra, as does the Diagnostic and tuning packages, but they are worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

General tuning using Top Activity and the SQl advisor. Also the interface for creating SQL Profiles and/or baselines. Along with other tools, have sped up batch jobs and help screens be quicker. Also use alerts. We have a couple of programs that need upgraded that flake out occasionally and use OEM to monitor those as well. Could probably use some other thing, but OEM is already set to go.

"Oracle Enterprise Manager - All in One Suite"

What do you like best?

Managing server and databases in one single platform with a relatively user friendly graphical user interface.

What do you dislike?

There are too many features scattered all over the platform, sometimes trying to look for certain items can be challenging.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good platform for managing all Oracle products and solutions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing Oracle Databases and Linux Servers throughout an organization with over hundreds of instances. Using Oracle Enterprise Manager makes it easier and much simplified approach to control and manage these instances. This is extremely useful for someone who do not use command line execution, with the graphical user interface, it allows administrators to easily issue command and instruction to the database execution.

Also, with the capability to see all servers in one place, administrators can observe the status of the servers easily and also issuing commands with much less clicks rather than going into individual servers to manage them.

"Oracle Enterprise Manager-Must have data base watch dog"

What do you like best?

Easily display AWR reporting or ASH analytics. Integrates with Oracle support for patch download, applies patches. Can manages jobs in each instance using scheduler packages. Easy to Use.

What do you dislike?

Setup of default page gets lost at times.Licensing agreement is complex.Simple functionality like one to many mapping of users to groups could be done which would be a useful feature to a DBA/Admin while adding new users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

OEM has standard plugins available which will enable easy integration with third-party products. It is more of a luxury purchase in small shops with a limited budget. If the organization can afford it, it is the first tool they should buy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Manages space in tablespaces, data files. Alerts set to your comfort level for warning critical thresholds. Running jobs to check for vulnerabilities.

"A powerful tool for *Free "

What do you like best?

I have been using Oracle Enterprise Manager since last 8 years of my Oracle DBA experience. Here are few of the many things that i love about OEM:

> Base Version of OEM is absolutely free given you already have licensed enterprise edition of Oracle database and tuning + diagnostic packs.

> It's POWERFUL. You can monitor database instances, listeners, hosts, storage (ASM), file systems, almost everything that you need to monitor and ensure your databases run smooth.

> Database administration is super easy when using OEM for lot of day to day activities like performance monitoring, diagnostics and alerts, user management etc. I can literally do all my DBA activities without having to login to individual database environments and without the hassle of maintaining all the SQL commands i need to achieve my tasks.

What do you dislike?

I love OEM but then there are few things, i don't appreciate about it.

First, It requires an intense knowledge of OEM both for installation and configuration. I don't mind it, most DBA's won't. But for someone who is just starting up with OEM, it can be super overwhelming.

Second, Given that OEM runs on top of Oracle WebLogic Server, the DBA also needs to have knowledge of WebLogic Server Administration. If Oracle can make it a little more seamless where DBA doesn't has to worry about WebLogic portion of the stack, it would be awesome.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Oracle Enterprise Manager for monitoring and administering all are databases. Before OEM, we had to create hundreds of monitoring scripts to monitor all our databases for different scenarios of failure. This was tedious and not very reliable.

With OEM, monitoring and administration has become much more reliable and easy.

a fewer bugs which needs complex decision making when there is down time

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have more Oracle Products , 3rd parts products which are compatible with OEM , you can safely go ahead and use this product with the level of expertise you have on your Organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We Monitor all the Oracle Enterprise Mission Critical DBs and 3rd Party DBs , as well Fusion Middleware products

"Great for desktop and mobile"

What do you like best?

I like how it's easy to access my time sheets and expense reports via the desktop site and via my Android phone. I hate when websites force you to use Active X scripts and internet explorer to work properly. The Oracle suite works perfectly while I am using Google Chrome browser.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how it doesn't autosave what you type in. You have to manually hit save in order for the info to sync to the servers. Sometimes the website would time out causing my data to be lost since it wasn't saved in time. The ease of accessing different parts of the Oracle suite from each other is a little difficult, it's as if each part operates as a separate program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm a end user employee so I mainly use it to enter data. It's also used to help manage our projects but only the project managers access that part.

"great to work on that tool"

Lifecycle management helps a lot with data base and automation

I would defiantly recommend other to use but definitely the current version needs some improvement

Mainly day to day operations and easy to manage our resources who use it and to automate the tasks

"Fun tool for DB Management"

What do you like best?

Administrative tasks have been made easy, simple server implementation. Helps us with our database and middleware management.

Easy to install (solid documentation), also was impressed with the operating system Solaris 11.

What do you dislike?

Not able to run UI thru multiple browser clients. We have also had some hiccups when test driving the application where we needed to shutdown services and databases to get it started.

Another demerit is that EM12c R2 is certified with BI Publisher 11.1.1.6.0 only. Therefore in case you are using EM 12c R1 which is integrated with BI Publisher 11.1.1.5.0, you must upgrade the BI Publisher to 11.1.1.6.0

Recommendations to others considering the product

complexity involved to get OEM agents to work with OEM server. Oracle should simplify this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Workflow Management, Automation of tasks, Check and tune SQL problems. The monitoring, and plug-ins that communicate with My Oracle Support is excellent.

"Oracle Enterprise Manager - Database detective at its best"

What do you like best?

The functionalities that it offers are numerous ranging from server monitoring, performance tuning, AWS reports, SQL tuning,load balancing. It has very informative visuals capability to see your database performance.

What do you dislike?

AWS reports functionalities can be made better. I also am not very fond of the timeout functionalities. It times out very often and settings have to be changed in the config file.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great tool for those working as database administrators!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I worked as a database administrator providing cloud services to multiple clients and sued it to monitor database performances for them.

"Gets the job done "

What do you like best?

This software has a lower learning curve than other database management software. For example, because the user interface is graphical, you do not need to know SQL to find what you want and is much more user friendly. Good for someone who is trying to learn database management and branch off into more advanced Oracle software.

What do you dislike?

While good for beginners to get an idea of database management, you need to eventually use other Oracle software in conjunction with this one because you can't do everything with it. Also it can be slow with debugging and sometimes you have to reboot after large changes are made.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for simple tasks, but make sure to use software that implements SQL for specific tasks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Figuring out priority in which powerlines need repairs or regular maintenance. Managing projects has become easier using this software.

"Ticket monitoring for Office Depot"

What do you like best?

I could see tickets from other stores on this system. tickets would remain active until closed. Easy to use to collaborate with 3rd party.

What do you dislike?

sometimes we would have to call in a site admin to force closure on tickets.

when updating tickets, we had to update them using a drop down tab, if anything were to change, it would not allow for us to update it to closure. the occasional need for an admin to override everything was annoying

Recommendations to others considering the product

its really not a bad system once the quarks are figured out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ticket monitoring, work order generation, updating notes on tickets

"In depth middleware analysis "

What do you like best?

OEM is one of the top notch application we are using it in our environment. It gives real time depth analysis report for continuous monitoring. we use OEM for to monitor our SOA stacks. we do use for DB monitoring for performance tuning. we high recommend OEM for large scale enterprise applications.

What do you dislike?

Despite the over experience is good, we do see some issues with the OEM schema DB's and performance been hit low some time. The loading time of all components takes 1 to 2 min which is quite bad for operation team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In-depth analysis of the middleware components and reports generation which is quite good for capacity management. if you have large scale enterprise application that need high level of monitoring then I would certainly recommend OEM is the product.

"Tools you can't live without"

What do you like best?

Resource Manager GUI, once you get the concept of resource manager it is much easier to set up "usage restriction" via Resource Manager Console than SQL PLUIS. Ability to write metric and deploy them to multiple databases. Scheduling RMAN backup jobs are much easier with EM console. Ability to monitor the host availability.

What do you dislike?

Database->Control (Startup and Shutdown). I never use this feature because it is much slower than connecting via sqlplus and do a shutdown or startup

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring database activity, scheduling RMAN backup, creating and deploying metric to monitors multiple databases health

"All The Information You Need Is In Front Of You"

What do you like best?

I find it nice that OEM provides a graphical way to manage both our database and E-Business Suite. It's great being able to see that all the information you need is in front of you on the screen. There are links that allow you to kill sessions or to check your performance. With other solutions, you just see numbers go by on a screen.

What do you dislike?

It can be a process hog sometimes. When I do leave it running, the CPU fan kicks on, and I can hear it running. Otherwise, it's a great tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a very flexible, straightforward installation. It's user friendly, usable day by day and we can see the database monitoring, host monitoring, everything.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

managing and implementing technology solutions resulting in optimized and scalable operational environments.

"Easy for Oracle database management"

What do you like best?

It is easy to manage your Oracle databases with the graphic interface, you do not need to know any SQL or administrate commands.

Most administrate tasks like add data files to tablespaces or extend the size of tablespaces can be done just by clicking buttons.

You can also get some database monitor information from enterprise manager.

What do you dislike?

Cause it simply the management of Oracle database by graphic interface, it is not quite good for beginner to just use it to do administration. You may never know the basic knowledge behind your click. Normally, every database administrator need to learn how to write the commands to deal with normal tasks like create a user and assign proper privileges to the user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to management your databases if your company owns a large number of databases in production.

It provides system and database monitoring so you can know if there is any error with your databases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Oracle enterprise manager simply daily tasks of administration and save DBAs from trival tasks, so DBAs can save time to do more important works like tuning your database performance.

"Oracle Enterprise Mgr"

What do you like best?

It's easy, shareable, and reasonable. And it is Oracle. Always has been the leader in database manipulation, definition and access.

What do you dislike?

Cost is higher than almost all others. It interfaces with other products nicely

Recommendations to others considering the product

Shareable. Almost all of the fortune 500 use Oracle in one form or another. Via SAP or many other applications. They produce one of the best (if not the best) Data Definition Languages and Data Manipulation Languages in the market. The Oracle database is 2nd to none for access & availability. Number 1 is a good sign.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

Our environment is so customized and it's very difficult to troubleshoot when issues arises. So we approached Oracle and they suggested this oem product.for middleware monitoring. Every since we deployed we are happy with the performance and it really helps with in depth troubleshoot. The product is correct for application performance Management. We highly recommend for middleware monitoring

What do you dislike?

Getting resources for oem is tough outside the market. So we hired a separate person to maintian this product. Oracle need to provide or embed it in existing middleware components.
