Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

I wish I had an option to give it a 9.5 :) OEM Cloud Control is very well suited if you have a system with multiple implementations of Oracle Database Enterprise Edition.If you are willing to pay for the huge license cost which is typical with Oracle, then you will love to use OEM Cloud Control to monitor your entire ERP solution including web servers, applications, network, storage, and physical servers.It is not worth the buck if your's is a small implementation. Your DBA's should be able to work without depending on OEM Cloud Control.

ParkMyCloud is well-suited for companies that have large cloud data sets in AWS or Azure and need to closely monitor the usage costs associated with the cloud. It is well-suited for companies with a large spend on cloud resources, but not very useful for entities with smaller cloud budgets.

Pros

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager is a "one stop shop" for all of our management needs. This is helpful because it minimizes the management of the management software itself. There are less upgrades and connectivity issues to handle. And there are "plug-ins" for additional products we use like Blue Medora's one for PostgreSQL.
  • Managing administrative jobs can be burdensome in a shop with dozens of servers and databases. OEM Cloud Control makes it easy since you can view all the jobs for all servers in one place. It is easy to filter on jobs with problems or the like so that you can quickly look at the logs and fix the issues.
  • Tuning PL/SQL is much easier using OEM Cloud Control. Most DBAs are familiar with trace files and TKPROF, but not having to do those things at a command line smooths the process out. The graphical interface makes it easier to show developers exactly what the issues are. This makes for less finger-pointing and quicker resolution of performance problems.
  • Proactive management is easier using OEM Cloud Control. Before having the gui, I had a collection of scripts that I would have to install on each database server, then set up cron jobs to run them. When Oracle was upgraded, those scripts might have to be updated on each and every server. OEM Cloud Control has those things built in. You can choose exactly which metrics are important to you. And you can keep performance graphs up all day on a second monitor to let you instantly see when something might cause a problem.

  • ParkMyCloud is great at notifications.
  • ParkMyCloud's user interface is great, and makes it easy to monitor activity.
  • ParkMyCloud is precise. It's almost amazing how it knows when to shut off.

Cons

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control can do a better job in actively managing (as opposed to monitoring) non-Oracle IT components including non-Oracle database, middleware, and storage.
  • The UI is less responsive and sometimes slow and the user experience could certainly be improved.
  • There is also an issue with positioning as other Oracle products sometimes come with their own versions of management console so it is hard to justify paying for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control separately or as a new attachment.

  • The simple user interface is sometimes too simple.
  • It's tough to tell whether the software actually does save money, but it seems like it does.
  • The default recommendations provided by company are just ok.

Usability

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 8.5
Based on 2 answers
I wanted to give it a 10 but the heavily loaded solution makes it slow to load and refresh pages. Even bouncing the OEM Cloud Control takes around 10 mins which is quite long.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

I used many other Oracle products (like Database, Middleware, Identity Management, etc.) but I have yet to review them.
Jody Kelly | TrustRadius Reviewer

ParkMyCloud

ParkMyCloud seems to be more cost effective than the alternatives I have run across. The software also seems to have a user interface that is second to none. I'm not sure on the other aspects of the software - latency, accuracy, ease of customization - compared to the other software tools. They seem to be good as well.

Return on Investment

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

  • It was very quick to implement the monitoring of our database infrastructure using OEM Cloud Control.
  • It reduced the amount of effort our team would have spent creating and managing numerous background monitoring scripts.
  • It's very helpful when somebody reports performance bottlenecks.

ParkMyCloud

  • ParkMyCloud has had a positive ROI in that it has saved money by limiting resource usage.
  • ParkMyCloud has had a negative ROI in that it's hard to tell whether the time spent implementing the solution was worth it sometimes.
  • ParkMyCloud has been a positive overall experience because it gets IT professionals thinking about costs, something they're not apt at doing often.
