Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control

Oracle Enterprise Manager is used to manage our Oracle Database, MySQL, and on-prem IT infrastructure that includes both Oracle and non-Oracle components and cloud deployment including OCI.
  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control is best in breed to manage and monitor Oracle IT assets including Oracle Database and Oracle Cloud.
  • It is also able to monitor non-Oracle components as well including non-Oracle storage, middleware, and virtualization technologies.
  • It has a simple UI that can be used to pretty much do most basic management and IT life cycle management tasks for the full IT stack, both on-prem and cloud.
  • 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.
  • Positive ROI resulting from easy of doing root cause analysis of issues related to performance in both Cloud and on-prem data center components.
  • Positive ROI in doing periodic data center-wide audit for compliance
  • Better visibility in the use of various IT assets, for example, various database instances.
Being an Oracle shop using Oracle Database and MySQL, management console from Oracle was a better choice than IBM or Microsoft even though we do use Microsoft Azure and storage/servers from IBM (on-prem).
Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control is well suited when you need a single console to manage a full IT stack, especially when most of the components in the IT stack are Oracle products.
