System Center helps to create the basis for ITIL alignment.Many processes could be implemented out-of-the-box, and this helped to adopt processes in areas which we lacked.Managment Packs for Microsoft-specific products, help us implement the best practices for each product.The detail in the alarms is great.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the option to design, and the development can happen at the same time.The ability to stand up a highly available SOA Suite, which has full DR capabilities, in a remote center and synchronize the databases using Data Guard.We were able to scale out using multiple application and web servers balanced by hardware load balancers and Weblogic clustering.The product allows you to visualize how a company is working currently by providing rich possibilities for analysis such as the audit trails and therefore shows where improvements might be valuable.Middleware jobs developing for EC, ERP, and shipping systems become easier.Enables our Product Manager to post products to different outside EC platforms with only one interface and one process.Conceptually, how it integrates a lot of essential enterprise process components.

If the disk space expansion can be made more flexible, not requiring a database restart, it would be a major benefit.Various parts of SOA, BPEL, and so on, each have their own consoles which need to be accessed individually with different logins. It would be better from an admin perspective if all the consoles were accessible via a single login.The Maven integration in JDeveloper is very basic and might be enhanced to allow the proper use of Maven.The installation and adjustment process seems too complex.The interface is too complicated. Making modifications still requires too much technical knowledge.The web services need to be more robust.

Overview
System Center helps customers realize the benefits of the Microsoft Cloud Platform by delivering unified management. Experience fast time-to-value with out-of-the-box monitoring, provisioning, configuration, automation, protection and self-service.

Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
