IDC Link:Oracle Enterprise Manager: The Secret Sauce in Oracle's Hybrid Cloud Strategy

This report "Oracle Enterprise Manager: The Secret Sauce in Oracle's Hybrid Cloud Strategy" is authored by Mary Johnston Turner from IDC. The Link discusses IDC’s experience at Oracle Open World 2014, specifically around Oracle Enterprise Manager.


•Oracle Cloud services are supported by more than 20 Oracle Cloud data centers around the world and are managed by the same Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) toolkit that customers use on premise to monitor, provision and maintain Oracle databases, Engineered Systems and Oracle applications and middleware.

•Oracle's goal with OEM is to provide customers with a unified management environment where on premise management solutions can monitor and manage public cloud services, and visa versa, depending on the customer's specific needs.

•The real value of OEM to the company and its customers is its ability to reduce costs and improve operational agility via delivery of consistent automated workflows and repeatable configurations, identity and performance SLAs across the full spectrum of Oracle on premise and public cloud offerings.
