Quotes From Members Comparing Oracle Enterprise Manager vs. Quest SharePlex

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident NotificationsWith 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.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 core replication and its performance. Performance is crucial, and SharePlex is by far the fastest. The way it handles replication to multiple targets along with basic filtering, as well as from multiple sources to a single target, is very efficient.

Cons
They should improve the hover text context. This would provide assistance whenever a task is attempted by a DBA.Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different.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.Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions.I would say mostly backup and recovery, through the Enterprise Manager. Or any corruptions, to be able to fix them through Enterprise Manager.I feel more dashboards can be added, especially those useful to higher levels of IT management.

For its function in relation to replication (i.e. filtering), I'd give it a six or seven out of 10. GoldenGate has much more functionality by comparison.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.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.Based upon 3 days of implementation by a single person, plus licensing costs would be approximately $60,000, including the virtualized hosts.As with all Oracle products, care should be taken when using any features to ensure that they do not activate licensed features that have not been paid for.It is part of Real Application Testing, so no new investment is necessary for clients who already are already using RAT.

Overview
Overview

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.
