James LuiTeam Lead - Oracle Applications DBA at a energy/utilities company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Technical support from Oracle is okay."
"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."
"This platform has issues with stability and performance."
"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."
"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."

Oracle Coherence is an in-memory data grid solution that enables organizations to predictably scale mission-critical applications by providing fast access to frequently used data. As data volumes and customer expectations increase, driven by the “internet of things”, social, mobile, cloud and always-connected devices, so does the need to handle more data in real-time, offload over-burdened shared data services and provide availability guarantees.
Oracle Coherence comes with a rich set of processing and event capabilities so applications can scale processing with increased data volumes. By automatically and dynamically partitioning data, Oracle Coherence ensures continuous data availability and transactional integrity, even in the event of a server or site failure.
Oracle Coherence provides organizations with a robust scale-out data abstraction layer that brokers the supply and demand of data between applications and data sources. This cost-effectively offloads shared data services such as databases, mainframes, and partner services.

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.
