Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The time it takes to track problems in applications is the most valuable return that we have from this solution.""​Deep Dive and Transaction Analysis Triage capability.​""The features that I find most valuable are related to network monitoring.""The feature that I have found the most valuable is its user interface.""JVM memory monitoring and connection pool monitoring are valuable features.""The most valuable features are the low overhead, the ability to monitor production on 24/7 principle, the ability to decrease time to discover the point of failure in the IT infrastructure or the application environment in a short period of time, reporting for analyzing the performance of the application for improving the code optimizing process."

More Broadcom DX Application Performance Management Pros »

"The most valuable feature is high availability.""There are a number of different user interfaces you can choose from.""The 13cR2 updates to the OEM family, strongly integrate Cloud (off-site, hybrid and on-premise) services providing a seamless way to see all of your resources regardless of where they are deployed.""The tried and tested services that Oracle provides is second to none.""The product gives us as much control as we can have by providing a complete picture of the whole set of Oracle products.""SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident Notifications""The most valuable features are security and speed.""This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues."

Cons
"The reason it's not a ten is because they don't focus enough on improving over time like other competitors do who have a more modern and complete tool.""User Experience is a BIG one. Integration of all of APM components into one swift deployment.""Technical support needs to be more responsive and address support tickets more quickly.""They can make it easier to configure.""With respect to SQL monitoring, it would be nice to have a little more information because it doesn't provide the full statement all of the time.""You can sell licenses and install the full tool on service, you can show customers how to install, but how to use it and solve issues cannot be done without the experience."

More Broadcom DX Application Performance Management Cons »

"RMAN tools need improvement.""There's a lot of documentation to go through as a new user.""Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions.""The solution is considered expensive.""We would like to have a single dashboard for monitoring and controlling all of our products.""Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different.""The user interface is not very interactive. It needs improvement.""The product is pretty comprehensive, but quite resource hungry. This might be due to the majority of the application seemingly being written in Java."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Broadcom is a better and cheaper option from the financial perspective. It also depends on the DLP plug.""The licensing costs are expensive.""All discounts are case by case to accommodate the client's budgets."

More Broadcom DX Application Performance Management Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is very high.""Based upon 3 days of implementation by a single person, plus licensing costs would be approximately $60,000, including the virtualized hosts.""We are satisfied with the pricing.""There are a few bugs with the software which require opening SRs with Oracle Support which contribute to the day-to-day cost. Perhaps 8 hours per month is spent dealing with support, just as a rough guess.""There is only the standard licensing fee. There are no other costs.""Evaluate your requirements carefully. Elaborate DR and HA setup of OEM can become expensive.""Be careful to only enable the packs for which you have a license as this is an issue we see time and again.""The solution is inexpensive to purchase."

Overview

CA Application Performance Management (CA APM) is the solution global brands trust to proactively identify and resolve performance and availability issues across physical, virtual, cloud, and mobile applications. Patent-pending analytics provides expertise in the form of guided assisted triage workflows for in-depth, root-cause diagnostics across development and production applications, simplifying and speeding the time it takes to find and fix issues.

CA APM scales to your organization’s needs and automatically correlates multiple sources of data to help you sort through the data and act decisively, helping to improve user experience and application performance.

As an IT operations professional, your job is more critical than ever because cloud operations are now a fact of life. For example, you must address the concerns of corporate compliance auditors one minute, and the next minute, deal with end users who signed up for cloud services without consulting you first. So, what are you to do?

Not to worry! Oracle provides a single solution for managing both situations. Oracle Enterprise Manager provides a “single pane of glass” that allows you to manage on-premises and cloud-based IT using the same familiar interface you know and use on-premises every day.
