How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

Deployment times vary depending on the features that you want to include. 

If you want to include only the regular features of Oracle, then it will take 35 minutes, and less than an hour if you want to include some more options.

Two engineers are more than sufficient to maintain this solution.

What about the implementation team?

We completed the setup, deployment, and implementation ourselves.

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

There is only the standard licensing fee. There are no other costs.

I would rate Oracle Enterprise Manager a seven out of ten.
