Most Helpful Review
Gives us very deep visibility into both user actions and systems interactions, including a view inside containers
Very helpful to have the ability to enable centralized control & administration of Oracle products from a single console
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The view it provides for default analysis is very nice. The way in which it showcases how the metrics have been captured and how lucidly that they are displayed. This is a good thing to have from a technical and non-technical perspective."
"It reduces our efforts to identify services failing in production."
"You don't have to configure it. It just needs to be installed."
"It provides us a reference for being able to go back and look at data at a certain point, analyze it, then determine if something was the root cause."
"The stability is rock solid. We put a lot of stress on it."
"It gives us visibility into the product and what we are doing operationally."
"The visibility that it provides through the application's behavior allows us to find trends based on our customized metrics."
"The graphical interface is helpful, as it illustrates things well for anyone who wants to know about the information it provides."
"The most valuable feature is high availability."
"This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues."
"We use it extensively for performance tuning testing, monitoring, and configuration."
"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"
"For the manage services, they work on CloudWatch logs and are given CloudWatch logs only. I would like more collaboration with AWS and insight into CloudWatch services. This would be valuable, especially when detecting the fault of the root cause analysis. It would make the process go faster."
"They should include more mission learning into the product and provide additional performance metrics for application learning."
"When compared with other tools, the experience needs improvement. I would like them to build out the interactions and make them friendlier."
"I would like them to add serverless capabilities, because everyone is going there."
"As we move into using more AWS native architectures, it should support everything that we want to do. We don't want to adopt another tool."
"The new Managed Edition is too complex. I feel like a fish out of water."
"Every time we spin up an EC2 instance, we have to slap an agent on it and that is more work. So, if it could go agentless, that would be great."
"It needs a better way to figure out how to dig deeper into the details, e.g., sometimes we have to wade through multiple logs, etc."
"RMAN tools need 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."
"Better mobile access would be useful."
"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."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"While it is quite good in respect to its functionality, there are few area in regards to pricing that they can look at how to possibly change. I have heard it's costly."
"There is time savings. People's times have been cut in half using this solution because we were previously doing a lot of that manual work. Now, it's a lot more automated, and the data is just there."
"The price could be improved."
"The product is pricey, but it is feature-rich, which is why we probably haven't looked away from it."
"Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was a pretty straightforward process. We had no hiccups."
"I think the pricing is at a fair value for what it is."
"The pricing and licensing are very expensive."
"Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is excellent."
"The pricing is very high."
"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."
"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."

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.
