What is most valuable?

The most important, of course, is the monitoring feature, because we want to monitor the host and the databases. Of course, that you can manage and create the backup strategies from a central environment for all your environments, so you... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Using Enterprise Manager, I was able to create user profiles for all the instances that have the same profile. Secondly, it's easier to manage performance, to automate the AWR reports to run every half an hour, or hour. Then, if you have a... more»

What needs improvement?

Because all our banking infrastructure is based on Oracle, I’ve tried to register Enterprise Manager on the middleware level, let's say, WebLogic applications. But I cannot say that I can do all the administration from Enterprise Manager,... more»

What is most valuable?

Real-time SQL, performance monitoring and SQL Tuning Advisor are the features that I use the most. These features are very effective to find problems and to resolve them. Besides these, setting alert mechanism, getting AWR reports and monitoring the Exadata hardware are the most useful features. Also, adding clients remotely from the Oracle Cloud Control 12c... more»

What needs improvement?

There are still doubts as of how to use this tool for administration issues such as storage or replication operations. DBAs still prefer to administer databases by manual commands. They rather use this tool to monitor databases and alert mechanisms. To be more specific, most DBAs (that I've met) prefer to use “Sqlplus”, “putty”, “secureCRT” command line tools or... more»

What is most valuable?

Host-based monitoring is a big advantage of Enterprise Manager. Now, with EM, it is easier to manage your Oracle Database backups and create email alerts regarding the status of your backups (Succeeded or Failed). I know when a target is up... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Oracle Enterprise Manager, so you can monitor performance as a system.

What needs improvement?

When registering a host, only if your host is running Linux will you get all the information which is available on EM. It would be nice if in future releases to include IBM AIX (primarily) and Microsoft Windows (secondly). When you register a... more»

What is most valuable?

There are lot of features in this product that I like. Among them are that RMAN backup jobs can be created, and that all the database instances can be monitored from one place. Tablespaces can be monitored and data files can be added when... more»

How has it helped my organization?

In my organization, the RMAN backup jobs are configured through this product. Also, we have test, prod, UAT, and QA servers. All these database instances are easy to monitor from this product.

What needs improvement?

I think the help file should include more in-depth documents for the user to collaborate with all aspects of the product even if they haven't had product training.

What is most valuable?

Alerting, patching, general monitoring. Each host to be monitored requires and agent to be installed and configured - this process is mature and works well.

How has it helped my organization?

The big win here is alerting - if configured sensibly (don't use the out of the box settings) with some planning this can be a real asset - alerts can also be sent to your problem management system and steered towards exactly the right group... more»

What needs improvement?

It's much more than a monitoring package - sometimes when scratching beneath the surface you end up with issues . Such as agents requiring security, scan listeners moving about after fail overs, some patching processes failing - these are... more»
