What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing costs are largely too high. Particularly in the African market, companies struggle a lot in terms of IT costs.

Prior to the current version, my customer was using version 11g.

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… 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… 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… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are using the free version. We are not using any licensed packages of Enterprise Manager, so I’m not quite sure how much each package is. As I understand it, there are… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I used Oracle Grid Control 10 a few years ago, as a consultant, and it was very useful. So when I came here and we started having more and more environments, I said… more»

What is most valuable?

The accuracy is the most valuable feature for us. Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control gives us diverse monitoring tools, monitoring capability that can be extremely powerful, security patching… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control has improved our organization in many ways: * Before implementing this solution, the patching was done manually. Now, we do the same task with patching… more»

What needs improvement?

The product does have room for improvement in patch management. It is complex, but since the documentation is very much elaborated, we followed the documentation. We were able to implement it by… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We switched due to the ease of control in managing productivity and administration. We were not using that solution as heavily as we are using Oracle Control now. It was the mobile Microsoft SCOM… more»

What other advice do I have?

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 Cloud Control has been really useful for our organisation. Before Enterprise Manager, I had 15 different database consoles with no centralised monitoring or alerting system. With EM, it has been easier to monitor… more»

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… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No different solution was used before.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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… 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… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

You will probably already be an Oracle user and so will have an existing license agreement. Add-on's can be pricey though.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No.

What other advice do I have?

Its one of those products that you can, and should customise to your own requirements. Don't expect a one off install then leave it to take care of itself. Proper… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Nothing else was considered for Oracle database monitoring.

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 the Resource Manager, where we can manage the consumption of resources of certain queries, separately in resource groups. Depending on the characteristics of… 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 not having to do several searches in views and tables of the data dictionary. The tool already does this for you in an agile way. We had a case where a… 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 and the documentation for them is very generic and does not make very clear the correct steps from the installation to the addition of the host and database… more»

What is most valuable?

Patching multiple databases Performance monitoring Management and optimization Database administration Alerts and thresholds

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped us in the manner of productivity, since it enables us to monitor and manage a lot of databases in a centralized web portal.

What needs improvement?

Stability and performance of the tool itself. Might be better used with more hardware. Normally the specifications from the docs are enough.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

OEM requires no licensing, but if you want to use features like the performance monitoring page in your database, you must have the Diagnostic Pack license. If you want… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Yes, we evaluated Spotlight from Dell (Quest), but we chose OEMCC, since it has more features and requires no direct licensing.

What other advice do I have?

If you have a considerable number of Oracle Databases and they are very critical, I suggest you use this product. It eases administration, mainly regarding performance… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Spotlight from Dell (Quest).

What do you think of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control?

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution strictly for monitoring.

What is most valuable?

The real-time threat detection has been the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

There is a lack from the point of view of monitoring on the system. The performance of the system and its resources are things that I think can be improved. There needs to be real-time monitoring available on the solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have been satisfied with technical support.

How was the initial setup?

We installed in our repository with the agent. We installed on-premises and with an agent deployment.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises…
