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?

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.
