    Overview

    Retire legacy applications, manage data growth, improve application performance, and maintain compliance with structured archiving.

    Oracle Enterprise Manager is an on-premises management platform that provides a comprehensive integrated solution for managing and automating your various Oracle products, including applications, databases, middleware, hardware, and engineered systems located either in your Oracle data center or in the cloud.

    With the Oracle Enterprise Manager's console, you can administer multiple databases and servers, distribute software to multiple servers and clients, monitor objects and events throughout the network, and integrate with other tools.

    Key Oracle Enterprise Manager Features and Products

    • Hardware and virtualization management: Manage all Oracle environments from one central console. Oracle Enterprise Manager provides management and automation for Oracle engineered systems, databases, middleware, and hardware.

    • Database management: Oracle’s Database management provides a full lifecycle solution for updates and configuration management, patching, provisioning, testing, performance management and automatic tuning.

    • Application performance management (APM): User and database monitoring with diagnostics and performance analysis that provide rich reporting on real user activities.

    • Enterprise monitoring: Built-in monitoring of all components of the IT infrastructure enables rapid problem diagnosis. Both Oracle and non-Oracle components are constantly monitored.

    • Oracle real user experience insight: Insights on real user experiences and preferences enable businesses and IT stakeholders to develop a shared understanding into their application users’ experience.

    • Non-Oracle management: Oracle Enterprise Manager manages non-Oracle components with a comprehensive set of plugins. The self-update mechanism allows customers to download, import, and deploy extensions built by Oracle, Oracle partners, and Oracle customers. These extensions enjoy the same level of stability as Oracle's own products.

    • Installation and upgrade: The upgrade process provides efficient, reliable, secure data migration with minimal downtime of your environment.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Oracle Enterprise Manager stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Several major ones are its central management and monitoring and its reporting capabilities

    Robin C., head of Oracle Exadata Centre of Excellence at Tata Consultancy Services, writes, "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."

    PeerSpot users note the effectiveness of these features. A database manager at a tech services company notes, “The solution's most valuable aspect is the fact that it is embedded with the Oracle database and Oracle's engineering system, its extra data, and analytics.  They have plug-ins that are very helpful. Due to the infrastructure's size, the introduction they offer is very, very useful. It helps with an overall understanding of the product. They have a very nice graphical user interface. The monitoring is good. We can capture the SQL tune from us. With Oracle Enterprise Managers, we can see the rich performance tuning.”
