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.

KEY FINDINGS:

•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.

IDC Whitepaper - Time for Change: Optimizing Datacenter Infrastructure with Technology Refresh

IDC recently published a White Paper - "Time for Change: Optimizing Datacenter Infrastructure with Technology Refresh", sponsored by Oracle, which provides valuable insight and quantifies the business benefits of upgrading and modernizing IT infrastructure.

The report is based on in-depth interviews with seven enterprises that have recently worked with Oracle to refresh and optimize their data center infrastructure for an average three-year ROI of 267% and a payback in 13 months.

By consolidating and virtualizing their UNIX server and storage environments, IDC found these organizations were able to realize the following benefits:

  • Gain a more powerful infrastructure that delivers an aggregate financial benefit of $91,466 per 100 end users;
  • Optimize IT staff support by enabling them to more proactively manage IT infrastructure and reduce time spent responding to problems and architecture complexities;
  • Quantify real end user productivity gains derived from higher service levels and faster response times;
  • Mitigate the risks associated with service downtime by up to 99%; enabling more productive business operations.
