What do you like best?

We are very happy with OEM 13c and the main features we liked is the automation patch feature and monitoring databases itself that make us easy to reach a rca and resolve some performance quickly. Also advisors and ASR and great features. The app navegability is good too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Would be good to have more options on proxy configuration as some proxy products are different like bluecoat or may be more documentation on how configure it using this product. And on many environments we are having to create additional listeners on NOC network beacause network team restrict access from monitoring databases from NOC network and not uses data network interfaces.

Would be great DB2 mainly integration (more than exists today) so we can used it as a pattern for our environment as IBM is not doing so much improvement on DSM Product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Oracle Enterprise Manager provides a single point of control for your applications and databases. It provides out of box automation in form of monitoring templates and reporting templates. I also love the new Administrative Group introduced in 13.1 version onward.

It's a single point for patch control for all your deployments being monitored through OEM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While OEM makes monitoring super convenient and eliminates scope of human/scripting errors, administration using OEM requires special skills.

Also, OEM is resouce intensive and uses flash for loading pages with heavy charts and diagrams on it. This is quite slow. I have heard that in the new versions, Oracle is planning to use Jet instead of Flash to handle the slow page loading problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are multiple versions of the product available at the same time. We usually prefer to go one minor version less, since the most latest one is still being tested and not stable version. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We currently use it for monitoring our large number of Oracle and MS SQL databases as well as fusion middleware products.such as WebLogic, Tuxedo and Oracle BPM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Enterprise Manager just helps us, from a different point of views, starting from: Helping us to setup notification alarms, configure thressholds and people interested in receiving the alerts Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The price for other product integration, such SQL Server, it is expensive for a lot of customers, and actually the most part of clients are just using Enterprise Manager with Oracle products, and they have another complementary tools like solarwinds, Quest Moniroting tools, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My one and only complaint with this device is that you have to be connected on-site when opening the app for the first time. The past two times I have purchased a new device, I needed to access our secure intranet the same evening. Unfortunately, I was unable to do this until having it reinstalled/validated the next day.

Oracle has increased my productivity in ways that I never dreamed! The seamless integration across all devices has provided me the opportunity to access our network from anywhere. Gone are the days of “well I wonder if I can remote in here” or “who will be up this early and at the office for me to call and BEG for help?” Oracle solves everything. Everything.

What do you like best?

Oracle Enterprise Manager is a sophisticated monitoring and administration tool. It's easy to install and easy to add targets (monitoring targets).

It's a resource intensive product. It uses a lot of CPU and memory. Also, licensing is complicated, apart from Base version, most components are individually licensed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It kept a log of all our issue tickets going back many years.

Oracle made it easy to collaborate on issue tickets and work with my team members.

Oracle helped our department to delegate issue tickets and monitor each other's projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The search function was very poor, which made it difficult to find our issue tickets in RightNow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Reply feature was kind of messy at times, it was difficult to find out who originally sent in tickets and reply all to people.
