We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Cons
"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."

More Oracle Enterprise Manager Cons »

"The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance.""The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.""The server monitoring could be better.""If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.""The only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.""For us, the initial setup was complex""The documentation could be improved.""Having a more customizable interface and dashboard would be an improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"I was using the free, Community Edition.""We purchased Zabbix for a good price, including support""We are using the free, open-source version.""It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge.""This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable.""Zabbix is open-source so if one wishes to implement it in-house, they must have qualified professionals to set up and optimize databases, Linux/Unix OS, PHP, Apache, and depending on what is monitored, a full-stack network and systems administrator may be needed.""Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it."

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.
