We performed a comparison between Microsoft Azure and Oracle Enterprise Manager based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Amazon, Microsoft, Google and others in Infrastructure as a Service Clouds (IaaS).
"Microsoft Azure has thousands of services and products."
"I get all the features under one roof."
"The automated connectors to some of our critical enterprise systems are an important feature. These are very large, critical, global HCM systems."
"The product brings a lot of value to our business and customers."
"Microsoft Azure is an optimized solution when we compare it to any other particular cloud solution."
"In Azure, everything is pretty straightforward. Once you know it, the platform is very easy to use."
"The scalability is the most unique feature. Whenever our user count is high, and utilization of our application results in high use of resources, Microsoft Azure automatically scales our application so that users can access it without any issues or errors. Microsoft Azure gives you the flexibility to scale your applications up and down at any moment. It is quite easy and impressive."
"The ability to create the actual resource on the private cloud is easy to manage with Microsoft Azure."
"SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident Notifications"
"It is a scalable solution. So far, my company has not faced any issues with the scalability part of the solution."
"The most valuable feature is the monitoring because it's very useful for checking and troubleshooting compared with other products, like Nagios for example, that have some interaction with Oracle."
"The solution is easy to use and has good performance."
"I rate Oracle Enterprise Manager eight out of 10 for stability."
"We use Oracle Enterprise Manager as a tool to monitor Oracle products."
"The most valuable features of Oracle Enterprise Manager are the data guide and online monitoring."
"The most valuable feature of the solution is that it is a very user-friendly tool."
"Their backup strategy is a little complex which racks up the VM to other sole storage areas. This should be improved."
"There are many bugs in the solutions and we already have a ticket to Microsoft. Their content team is working on that."
"I would like to see more automation and AI with the cloud to help the clients understand more about their clients, their history data, and their predictive analytics. This would help them better manage their clients."
"The dashboard of Microsoft Azure could be better."
"There are times when using a service in Microsoft Azure can be confusing because you have four or five options that do similar operations. It would be helpful if there was a clear decision tree around those features. Microsoft does provide a lot of decision trees around a lot of their services, but it's not for everything."
"The local support is fair but it is sometimes limited, the service could be better."
"The product is not user-friendly."
"Microsoft Azure is so complicated inside. If you should do something internally, if you have to configure something, the opinion about Azure is that it is a little complicated inside. That's why the end users and clients are looking for help and why we help them configure and do anything inside of Azure. That is why we offer other tools to optimize the Azure environment."
"I rate Oracle Enterprise Manager six out of 10 for affordability. It's expensive."
"The solution's agents work with Java, and the Java code sometimes consumes a lot of memory on the CPU."
"The solution’s pricing could be improved."
"The interface offered by Oracle Enterprise Manager has certain shortcomings and needs improvement to become a nice tool."
"The product must improve its support team."
"The interface could be more friendly for basic users."
"Technical support could be more responsive."
"The tool is expensive."
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform, where developers can create, deploy, and maintain their apps. This cloud application platform allows developers to concentrate on the actual applications, while it takes care of all the elements behind the apps.
Windows Azure works across multiple frameworks and languages. It is fully scalable, localized in that it is hosted globally in many datacenters, and has widespread capabilities with elements of application development, deployment, and management.
Azure is comprised of several different service modules, including Infrastructure; Web; Mobile; Dev & Test; Big Data; Media;Storage, Backup & Recovery; and Identity & Access Management.

"It is a flexible solution that is straightforward to use," says the principal consultant at a computer software company.
“You can build an environment in minutes. It's very good in terms of being an infrastructure as a service, and I found that really fascinating,” says an information technology consultant at a computer software company.
"I think Azure's level of automation to achieve efficiency or agility is valuable. I also like the change capability cadence, the showback capabilities, and understanding what our costs are," says an enterprise architect at an energy/utilities company.
Marco C., Ing. at Wolters Kluwer, says "The valuable features of Microsoft Azure are that it is cloud-based and has good storage. The storage is completely managed by Azure. We do not need to do any patching of security because it is handled by Azure which is a benefit. The solution is fully compatible with the Microsoft technology stack and is very scalable."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Azure is it has everything together in one place. It is one large tool with lots of small tools that are updated often," says the owner of a media company.

Key Oracle Enterprise Manager Features and Products
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.”
