We performed a comparison between Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager and Oracle Enterprise Manager based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Server Monitoring solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"It lets you know what your infrastructure is like and what state you are in."
"SCCM is a stable solution."
"The major features of this product are the reporting tools. The most valuable features are package deployment and application deployment. Security management is also good because any vulnerability will be identified, and you can fix it. It's the best tool because you never know what kind of client you will have. For example, you may have your offices in low bandwidth remote areas. But it's achievable because it accommodates the bandwidth that you have available. Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager is an excellent reporting tool for your environment. If you want to know the details about the hardware configuration, software configuration, what is causing a problem, or when a new feature update comes in for Windows, even that goes on SCCM itself. A lot of deployment stuff."
"It has the ability to perform mass distribution."
"It is easy to install, and quick to deploy."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager is the availability of being able to manage the Microsoft estate. It handles many areas, such as asset management and tracking."
"It works well for the endpoints for the customer I'm consulting. It has a bunch of knobs, and you can tune it to do lots of things."
"The solution doesn't require any maintenance from our end because it is a cloud-based solution and Microsoft takes care of everything."
"It's a useful feature to be able to see the top SQL, the number of executions, the CPU, and the resources that it's using."
"The most valuable features of Oracle Enterprise Manager are the data guide and online monitoring."
"We use it extensively for performance tuning testing, monitoring, and configuration."
"This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues."
"It is the best monitoring tool for Oracle databases."
"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."
"It's easy to implement as it's made by Oracle for Oracle."
"SQL Tuning Advisor, ADDM, Top Activity, ASM Space Manager, Incident Notifications"
"The ability to integrate MDM would be great."
"The TSM component could be improved."
"A lot of experience is needed in terms of troubleshooting, as this is one of the most difficult tasks in MECM. We were seven people in a group and I was the only one that had the patience to do the troubleshooting at times."
"The downside of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager is it's an on-premise-based solution. With the pandemic coming on board the need to support users across the globe has increased. For a while, we would use the in-built Microsoft Teams screen sharing feature but the disadvantage of that is you cannot perform privileged access. Microsoft does not give you access to that. That's where you need cloud-based tools, such as BeyondTrust or Freshservice."
"SCCM does not scale well, which is one of the reasons we are not going to continue to use it."
"Cloud-based improvements need to be better managed."
"I'm looking for a single solution for all discovery needs. It fulfills about 40% of the requirements, and I'd like to see the other 60% so that I don't have to keep doing this."
"I would like to see more automation."
"The interface could be more friendly for basic users."
"Patching. It's extremely difficult to determine what requires patching and the process to patch each component is slightly different."
"Better mobile access would be useful."
"Technical support could be faster."
"In my experience, the monitoring could be improved."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"Oracle Enterprise Manager could improve the monitoring types and the graphics."
"In my opinion, rather than a younger DBA, think the user interface could be improved."

Users of MECM like that it is stable and flexible. Patching is one of its most useful features, although users cite many other features as useful as well. One user stated that "It does what you need it to do, and it's a one-stop-shop for the company and for all your deployments." Overall, “the entire solution, from end to end, is excellent.”

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.”
