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?

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»

What is most valuable?

I believe that one of the most valuable resources this tool has is the ability to check offending processes, which are burdening the hardware resources, and to generate advice quickly that can improve a query's performance. Another feature is... more»

How has it helped my organization?

One of the clearest examples is the agility of discovering processes/sessions that are burdening the database environment. With this agility, the DBA can more quickly verify this type of problem, in addition to checking locked sessions and... more»

What needs improvement?

One of the things that can be improved is the quality of results generated by BI Publisher. They are somewhat confusing when it comes to analysis. Another point is in the installation of the product. The installation steps are very complex... more»

Jun 28 2017

What is most valuable?

My interaction with OEM was primarily for governing Oracle 10g/11g databases. I was particularly interested in the monitoring/alerting features, table maintenance automation, performance dash-boarding, and Active Data Guard management.

How has it helped my organization?

I used this with clients, but not internally. For those with larger footprints, but with an inexperienced staff, it really helped to cushion the issues brought on by skill gaps. It also provided greater visibility of database performance for... more»

What needs improvement?

The interface for Data Guard could use some work. We had challenges with switchover/failover testing.

The Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM) helps to monitor many of the different targets and resources. It is a flexible system for metrics and for the notifications that inform the DBAs and system administrators, before the occurrance of a problem.
