Most Helpful Review
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:
With the Agentless monitoring and ability to create custom plugins, we've been able to transform the tool not just into a great APM solution but a really good enterprise monitoring solution too.
Dynatrace helped us with root cause analysis of poor performing components of our applications.
The product allows us to build preferred/customized business transactions to track complex transactions. UEM (User Experience Monitoring) agents track user experience on webRequests. The advantage is that Dynatrace correlates the measures on the devices with those on the backend servers, giving us an end-to-end view of the transaction, from the user's phone deep into the backend servers.
It has helped us improve the performance of many of our applications.
With the latest version, the AI engine highlights the root causes automatically.
The major improvement was the ability to find errors immediately and predict future failures, or when resources reach the maximum capacity.
The most valuable feature is the ability to perform synthetic checks for monitoring sites using click paths.
Dynatrace helped us to get a better understanding of how our services are communicating with each other, as well as better problem detection before something really breaks
SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident Notifications
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.
I have found the singular GUI feature very helpful. Fewer DBA resources can be allocated with Toad licenses.
Oracle Enterprise Manager has eased the responsibilities among our DBAs. We can now assign individual tasks to separate DBAs.
With ASH Analytics, ADDM, Real-Time SQL Monitoring, SQL Tuning Advisor, we can measure SLAs, detect performance hotspots, perform deep diagnostics into specific tiers, tune applications, and remediate.
It can also help with capacity planning, sizing, and maximizing overall performance in a large scale environment.
This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues.
We use it extensively for performance tuning testing, monitoring, and configuration.
This solution could be improved with better compatibility with legacy applications.
It would be nice if there were a way that it could be made simpler, given the complexity of the things that we're monitoring.
This solution needs better support for security and monolithic batch processes.
If the user interface were made more intuitive then it would really benefit the product.
Sometimes it is hard to find the right setting for what you want to change.
This solution needs improvement in terms of automation.
We would like the AI to produce more scientific data with less configuration.
The reporting is still too young and needs to be improved.
Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different.
Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions.
They should improve the hover text context. This would provide assistance whenever a task is attempted by a DBA.
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.
I would say mostly backup and recovery, through the Enterprise Manager. Or any corruptions, to be able to fix them through Enterprise Manager.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Our annual costs were about the same for both AppDynamics and Dynatrace.
Pricing can be high, especially for Portuguese standards. But as one says, you get what you pay for.
Setup cost is very low considering that it is an almost totally, automatic process.
Licensing is very interesting, as you pay only for what is being monitored. A lot of things are given away for no additional cost. If you have a great IT consolidation, it will be pretty cheap. If you have a lot of servers, it will be heavier.
I have not been able to observe more than 1% overhead, despite Dynatrace saying that it can be slightly higher in some situations.
Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is excellent.
The pricing and licensing are very expensive.
Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was a pretty straightforward process. We had no hiccups.
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.
Based upon 3 days of implementation by a single person, plus licensing costs would be approximately $60,000, including the virtualized hosts.
The basic functions are free. You only pay license fees for advanced features.
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.

Dynatrace has redefined how you monitor today’s digital ecosystems. AI-powered, full stack and completely automated, it’s the only solution that provides answers, not just data, based on deep insight into every user, every transaction, across every application. More than 8,000 customers use Dynatrace to optimize customer experiences, innovate faster and modernize IT operations with absolute confidence.
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.
