What is most valuable?

It's more effective to use command-line interface than using the GO setup. One of the great things about that EM is that you are able to connect to Oracle Support. This will make your work easier due to the fact that it will help you identify if your database is to be upgraded or if you are… more »

What needs improvement?

Sometimes the solution can be quite difficult in terms of when you want to deploy agents. You need to go through the Oracle documentation in order for you to be able to deploy an agent. Sometimes it just takes a long time, however, the thing is there is the overall concept of deploying. I don't… more »

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

I'm not aware of how much the product costs, so I can't speak to the pricing.

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We have no relationship with the vendor. There is a more up to date version, 18.42, however, I have not started using it yet as it requires some patching. Currently, I'm on version 18.4, which is quite stable. I would recommend the solution to others. In fact, I've already met… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is high availability. The features that we are using the most are for partitioning, Armonk, and encryption.

What needs improvement?

RMAN tools need improvement. There are some doubts about the Oracle policy on price quotes. I have a good relationship with the customers and If I start dealing with them, and get them a discount, then that discount is available to all of the Oracle partners. I prefer the way it works with other… more »

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

The pricing is very high.

What do you think of Oracle Enterprise Manager?

What is our primary use case?

For masking purposes, and for case studies with the other existing masking tools existing in the market.

How has it helped my organization?

It has a very good user interface, and the controls are user-friendly. Many useful options are available.

What is most valuable?

The masking features are good, and many new options and features are available in OEM for masking when compared to other tools.

What needs improvement?

With regards to masking still, some options could be added like running in simulation mode, creation of audit file option, file summary, file after masking.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What is Oracle Enterprise Manager?

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.
