The new year brings great news to the Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM) community. Now is a great time to get serious about updating to the current EM release and adding newly updated EM Packs. Oracle is making it easier to try the latest EM release without standing up new infrastructure to do so. Let's start with the first of the good news!
Customer interviews and research conducted by Pique Solutions were the basis of this study that quantifies the value our users are experiencing. The study includes in-depth interviews with users who shared before and after experiences of using Enterprise Manager. Pique Solutions then created a model and applied the findings for realistic quantification of the benefits. The study finds users can expect an ROI of 60% over a 3-year period. The study breaks the benefits down in three areas; administration productivity & efficiency, agility & scale, and resource optimization as depicted in figure 1 below.
A key finding of the deep analysis is the impact of using the different Management Packs for those managing the Oracle Database. The study provides best practices and guidance based on participant experiences, including which packs are best given a specific set of business needs. The study finds Management Pack adoption follows key patterns as shown in Figure 2.
