The 13cR3-PG (Patch Group) 1 updates to the OEM family, strongly integrate Cloud (off-site, hybrid and on-premise) services providing a seamless way to see all of your resources regardless of where they are deployed. PG1 adds enhancements for EMCLI (Command Line Interface) extensions to allow additional automation and scripting of common OEM tasks (Blackout begin/end, Patch availability monitoring, cloning enhancements.) Of the 12c series of Oracle Enterprise Manager products, version 12.1.5.0.x introduces Cloud (both public and private) 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 into virtualized datacenter environments, off-site, whether for fault tolerance and disaster recovery, or simply to reduce the cost of non-Production systems by using a pay-to-play methodology (reducing investment in specific hardware just to support disposable and transitional software systems development?) Consolidated and uniform monitoring of all Oracle-related technologies. Ability to enable centralized control and administration of Oracle products from a single console. Ability to see at a glance, all conditions of all products throughout the enterprise. Version 13c includes hybrid cloud support making transparent the transfer of provisioning systems between Oracle's Cloud and on-premise equipment. All of the cloud systems and in-house systems appear in logical groups according to their common function (Applications, Middleware, Databases, etc.) The configurations are also snapshot-friendly and made comparable to quickly isolate differences between similar systems.

The database performance monitoring features are very useful and allow us to quickly zero in on DB-related issues.Exadata storage server and Infiniband switches can be viewed from the GUi in OEM which cannot be done in other tools . The ability to deploy metric extensions makes this tool extensible for our custom monitoring also. View full review »

I have found the singular GUI feature very helpful. Fewer DBA resources can be allocated with Toad licenses. View full review »
