Oracle Enterprise Manager

OEM is very well suited for all Oracle products, especially Oracle databases and Exadata machines; even not Oracle hardware, it is very good and displaying high level details.OEM is not well suited for older hardware vendors like AIX, HP-UX, DEC/Digital, Microsoft (sql server). This is a big negative as most large companies have a heterogeneous environment with many different vendor hardware and (database) software products.

Panda Systems Management

Panda Systems Management is well suited for small to medium sized organizations looking for a tool to centralize asset management not only physical but also assist with rapid deployment of patches, applications, etc. It proves also to be very beneficial as permits (to and extent) to do troubleshooting without interfering or interrupting end users.

Pros

Oracle Enterprise Manager

  • Database status. Being able to see which databases are up/down, at a glance, allows us to quickly react to issues.
  • Reporting. We report on last backups, daily status, a host of metrics, and compliance levels of all our databases. With reporting we come into the office with a set of "status" reports and we know instantly if a database has issues.
  • Metrics. We have a number of KPI's and SLA's we need to meet. Metrics applied to the databases allow us to stay on top of those requirements as well as fix common issues without a DBA needing to log in to assess the issue.

Panda Systems Management

  • Remote access. It's as good as any other on the market. It also allows for RDP connections which is a nice feature.
  • Inventory management. We get some great insight from the reports we can run.
  • Quick Jobs. If there's an app or service you use, there may be a quick job to install and update it remotely.

Cons

Oracle Enterprise Manager

  • We also use OEM to monitor SQL Server. However, OEM only provided limited features for SQL Server. It would be nice if we can schedule backup jobs for SQL Server in OEM.
  • The ability to run SQL queries. You can't run queries in OEM. I have to go to SQL Developer or SQL PLUS to run. queries.

We have not had much trouble with Panda Systems Management. They've been fairly responsive, and do take suggestions. The onboarding process was smooth and about as easy as they could make it. There are times when it does take a while for them to respond, but they usually do respond within a few hours at worst.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Enterprise Manager

Toad for Oracle is more suited for individual users who have a strong focus on database development, and it is not as comprehensive as Oracle Enterprise Manager. While it is quite decent in logical database layer tasks, such as schema objects and SQL, it lacks visibility into host level and I/O layer performance stats.

Panda Systems Management

Much easier solution to use (by a ten fold), very intuitive user interface even for inexperience users... does not require on prem server because is cloud based

Return on Investment

Oracle Enterprise Manager

  • You are practically blind without OEM. There are other tools available but are expensive and negatively impact database performance.
  • If a bug hits OEM and it skips monitoring or doesn't catch something, it can have extremely negative consequences.
  • Being able to deploy scripts through OEM has replaced thousands of hours of work.

Panda Systems Management

  • It's allowed us to be more proactive when it comes to things. We can keep an eye on computers that may need replacement. It was a lifesaver when updating to Windows 10.
  • It saves so much time compared to our previous remote software, GoToAssist. While I think GoToAssist may be a bit more solid when in action, there's too much setup time, even with unattended access. Panda is click and go.
  • Remote command prompt has also been a lifesaver, and nonintrusive for the user. The users think we are magic.
