Team Lead - Oracle Applications DBA at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Apr 20 2018

What is most valuable?

The 13cR2 updates to the OEM family, strongly integrate Cloud support for both monitoring, and lifecycle management. This allows individual components, or entire systems to be resident either in-house on conventional hardware/VM's, or ported... more»

How has it helped my organization?

With over 2,700 different target components deployed and in-use, it would be impossible for 4 DBA's to otherwise monitor and assess the condition of this number of separate application and database systems by individually logging into... more»

What needs improvement?

Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions. Having more pre-built standard industry-generic reports using Business Intelligence Publisher provides out-of-the box basic analysis would... more»

Senior Database Administrator at Robert Half

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the performance monitoring. This is one single-point dashboard, which presents the health of the database, at a particular point in real time. It helps you see which queries are running, and the top file sessions... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The main benefit is the quickness; the speed at which you identify, diagnose and resolve problems. The old-fashioned way depends on the DBA’s manual skills. It would take him forever, if we were to go the legacy route. This is nice, like a... more»

What needs improvement?

As it is, this product has so many features. We have yet to explore its full potential. There is one feature that tells you how long the query has been running. It would be nice if they could introduce a GUI feature in the performance... more»

Oracle DBA at Group Dynamite Inc
Dec 09 2016

What is most valuable?

The most valuable is when a client calls us to tell us the performance is really bad, I can quickly go on to OEM and see which SQL is causing the problem. I can drill down. I can quickly apply a profile to that SQL. The only drawback that I... more»

How has it helped my organization?

As I’ve mentioned, the biggest benefit is being able to pinpoint a performance issue very quickly, and be able to react to it very quickly.

What needs improvement?

One of the things I'd like to see is for profiles to be dynamic. That would be really great, where you don't have to tell the user, "Stop whatever you're doing and restart your job." To me, that would be highest on my list of improvements.... more»

Enterprise Architect at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
Oct 31 2016

What is most valuable?

I think the neatest, most valuable feature of Enterprise Manager (OEM) is that single pane of glass for the whole stack, that it gives me as an admin the ability to look all the way up from my storage all the way up to the application tier.

How has it helped my organization?

There's a lot of benefits to Enterprise Manager. From the monitoring capabilities is that single pane of glass. It's being able to look at an application and then look at the database component. Look at the storage component on it from a... more»

What needs improvement?

What I would love to see in Enterprise Manager is more support for the hardware, more support for Bare Metal. Right now I can do Bare Metal deployments with Linux and OVM and that's an awesome capability, but I would love to see more... more»

Database Engineer at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
Nov 03 2016

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is very easy for the novice DBA to drill down and find problems that might otherwise be difficult to find.

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped developers and novice DBAs drill down and find the cause for problems. There are two pieces. One, it allows people to pinpoint issues easily, and then drill down and get more details of the issue. Previously, this used to be a... more»

What needs improvement?

I probably would like to see better SQL tuning advisors that are built into the product. When you know the issue, rather than just pinpoint it, if it could also give you a solution that might work, I think that would help the product. There... more»

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.
