Announcing Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control Integration with Oracle Enterprise Repository 11g for Runtime Metrics

Whether you are a service consumer, producer (developer), architect or manager, getting regular updates on runtime metrics of your assets is critical for many reasons. OER 11g PS6 can now gather runtime metrics for harvested assets from EM 12c Cloud Control. These metrics will then show under respective assets at regular, configured intervals.

To achieve this, you need to point the EM Integration Utility (already included in your OER), to your EM 12c and OER 11g instances. A new configuration file for EM 12c integration is now available. Get the patch and the new settings file from here. Instructions for applying the patch and configuring the utility are bundled in the patch as well.

Cover Story: Solving the SOA Governance puzzle: Taking a "Bite-Sized" approach

An article titled "Solving the SOA
Governance puzzle: Taking a "Bite-Sized" approach" authored by Oracle's Jyothi Swaroop was published as the
cover story in the December issue of Service Technology Magazine.
