Pros
This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues.We use it extensively for performance tuning testing, monitoring, and configuration.SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident NotificationsThe most valuable feature is high availability.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.

Cons
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.Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different.RMAN tools need improvement.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.

I would like to see a more flexible mobile client, and better HA out of the box.The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance.I want Zabbix to improve the UX/UI. Zabbix doesn't use a JavaScript chart for images, and I want them to improve this.Correlation of events would be a wonderful addition.​I would like to better be able to monitor Oracle processes.​

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.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 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.The basic functions are free. You only pay license fees for advanced features.

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.
