"The solution has a very good set of features."
"The technical support is good."
"The solution is stable."
"We have found the scalability to be quite good."
"It is easy to install, and quick to deploy."
"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."
"I have found the solution to be scalable. We have around 50,000 users using the solution."
"It uses detailed descriptions of the workstations, and that is good for me."
"The tried and tested services that Oracle provides is second to none."
"It is the best monitoring tool for Oracle databases."
"Due to the infrastructure's size, the introduction they offer is very, very useful. It helps with an overall understanding of the product."
"There are a number of different user interfaces you can choose from."
"This solution allows us to quickly drill down when there are issues."
"The most valuable features of Oracle Enterprise Manager are the data guide and online monitoring."
"I like that it's stable."
"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"It is a bit of an old and outdated product."
"The analysis is something that can be integrated. Their report analysis can be improved a little bit due to the fact that most of the time complaints policies are saved by the admins. It's something that we need to look into and search for."
"Microsoft should extend support for additional platforms."
"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."
"SCCM does not scale well, which is one of the reasons we are not going to continue to use it."
"The solution is on-premises. The cloud version of the product, if a person needs to be on the cloud, would be InTune, which already exists as an option. SCCM doesn't need to offer cloud features for this reason."
"They need to improve the support for the Mac operating system."
"There should probably be better remote support. They should also continue to improve on patch management, patching, and creating or turning products in software into deployable apps."
"The solution has a very large resource system. It's too big. There are too many items."
"We would like to have a single dashboard for monitoring and controlling all of our products."
"Better mobile access would be useful."
"Reporting and statistical charting is largely still left up the end-user to develop custom solutions."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"In my opinion, rather than a younger DBA, think the user interface could be improved."
"The solution is considered expensive."
"In my experience, the monitoring could be improved."

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.”
