Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Enterprise Manager

Oracle Enterprise Manager is primarily used by the database team as well as two other departments for monitoring purposes. For me as a DBA, it helps me to get a holistic picture of the databases and their components in the organization. It makes it easy managing and monitoring the databases easier. Also, in case of incidents, we get notified instantly, along with repeat alerts, which helps to address and resolve the issues sooner.
  • Helps to see what databases are not up to date with respect to patches
  • Tablespace usage alerts help to avoid running out of space
  • End-to-end database component management is very simple
  • Performance home for instances at times misses data when it transitions from one instance to another
  • When we were using Oracle GoldenGate, it made our life easy in terms of visually seeing the configuration and identifying issues easily
  • It also makes ASM management very easy instead of doing it in the command line
  • Creating policies and implementing certain standard configurations across all the databases is easy
I haven't taken one recently, but I loved every single one of the trainings when I had in-person Oracle University training because of the connections you could create with experts in the field, the hands-on trainings on each topic, and the fun environment.
Datadog is good at collecting metrics, monitoring, and alerting; whereas, with Oracle Enterprise Manager, in addition to all that, we can manage the infrastructure as well as automate certain fixes.

Do you think Oracle Enterprise Manager delivers good value for the price?

Did Oracle Enterprise Manager live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Oracle Enterprise Manager go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Oracle Enterprise Manager again?

Yes

From my experience, I believer Oracle Enterprise Manager makes life easy for the management of all the databases and their components over URI as well as for automating certain management tasks using the command line. It's a blessing, especially when there are hundreds of databases with different database versions (because of legacy applications) running.
