Enterprise Manager Extensibility Exchange – Version 1.1 Now Available!

Since its announcement at Oracle OpenWorld 2012, the Enterprise Manager Extensibility Exchange is becoming the source to access Enterprise Manager entities, including plug-ins, connectors, deployment procedures, assemblies, templates, and more.  Based on feedback, the Exchange has recently been updated so Enterprise Manager administrators can find and access Oracle and partner-built plug-ins and connectors easier.




The Exchange enables anyone to contribute an Enterprise Manager entity through the “Contribute” tab, where information about the entity is captured and placed on the Exchange once it is approved.  The Exchange encourages comment through the Enterprise Manager Forum. 



An Oracle partner can build a plug-in by accessing the Extensibility Development Kit (EDK) found at the Development Resources tab.  Oracle partners and customers can can also engage a partner that has built its practice specializing in plug-in development and deployment.  One of those partners is Blue Medora, which has effectively used the EDK to build plug-ins to manage non-Oracle targets.  Check out the Blue Medora "Guest Blog" about heterogeneous datacenter management.

Partners can also have their plug-ins validated through the Oracle Validated Integration (OVI) program.  NetApp is an example of a partner that recently built an Enterprise Manager plug-in and has validated it through the program.  Check their "Guest Blog" post describing the value of an Enterprise Manager "OVI" plug-in as well as discuss specifics the NetApp storage plug-in. 

The Enterprise Manager Exchange is located at http://www.oracle.com/goto/EMExtensibility.

The NEW Oracle Enterprise Manager Extensibility Exchange

Oracle Enterprise Manager continues to expand its Eco-system with the NEW Extensibility Exchange!


The Exchange offers a searchable listing of Enterprise Manager entities. Today it’s stocked with plug-ins and connectors for Enterprise Manager 12c and 11g. Anyone - partners, customers, ACE community members, anyone - can post an entity subject to approval of course. So in addition to plug-ins and connectors, the Exchange will have best practices, deployment procedures, templates, and essentially any Enterprise Manager entity that’s relevant.

The Exchange provides Development Resources to guide contributors in the creation of plug-ins and connectors. A Community Resources page features plug-ins validated through the Oracle Validate Integration program as well as some other contributions important to customers.  You can also discover ways to get more involved with Enterprise Manager through the user and partner communities.

The Exchange was announced in the October 2nd Enterprise Manager Partner Press Release  and is being presented at Oracle OpenWorld 2012 during the following sessions:
    •    “Using Oracle Enterprise Manager to Manage Your Own Private Cloud” General Session – Tuesday Oct 2nd
    •    “Managing Heterogeneous Environments with Oracle Enterprise Manager” Conference Session – Tuesday Oct 2nd
    •    “Using Management Already Built into Oracle Products: Oracle Enterprise Manager” Oracle Partner Network Exchange Session – Wednesday Oct 3rd

Check it out at http://www.oracle.com/goto/emextensibility, and let us know what you think by posting a comment below or clicking the "Forum" button at the Exchange itself.
