future release of Oracle®
Enterprise Manager, including support for managing Oracle's
next-generation Fusion Applications and new integration with Oracle's
support services, at his Oracle OpenWorld keynote on October 14, 2009.
- The demonstration showed Oracle Enterprise Manager dashboards for
Oracle Fusion Applications, which are being designed to make it easy for
administrators to monitor and manage all aspects of Oracle Fusion
- The keynote also previewed a planned integration with My Oracle
Support, Oracle's next-generation online customer support experience.
This integration aids cutomers in the time-consuming task of patch
management providing proactive patch recommendations and patch automation,
helping them ensure their systems are continuously up-to-date. It also
provides increased visibility into production environments, enabling a more
efficient means for meeting regulatory, compliance and governance
- Oracle Enterprise Manager is a comprehensive product family of
management software for applications and IT infrastructure resources.
Delivering management that spans applications, middleware, database and
virtual infrastructure, Oracle Enterprise Manager provides top-down
application management for the enterprise application stack comprising
Oracle and non-Oracle software.
- My Oracle Support is Oracle's recently released next-generation support
experience and provides supported customers with unprecedented
personalized, proactive and collaborative support capabilities in one
place. Through this exclusive Web support portal, customers have instant
access to the latest support information, forums, communities and product
alerts enabling a superior support experience.
Comprehensive Application Management Extends Superior Ownership
- Oracle Fusion Applications customers can benefit from the following
- End-to-end application performance management - Integrated application
performance management from user experience monitoring down to the
infrastructure management without requiring the use of multiple tools,
manual set up or other customization. With these planned capabilities,
many application performance problems may be prevented while others will
take significantly less time to diagnose and remediate, all within Oracle
- Correlation of business and IT activity - Customers would be able to
monitor Key Business Performance Indicators and automatically map them to
IT components, enabling IT to be more responsive to business needs and
focus on what matters to the business. Business managers and IT decision
makers would have clear visibility into business performance and IT service
- Automatic topology discovery - Plans include capabilities within Oracle
Enterprise Manager to automatically discover the application topologies and
the dependencies among various physical and virtual components and
infrastructure. With planned automatic change detection, Oracle Enterprise
Manager would accelerate problem diagnosis and remediation by keeping an
accurate model of the enterprise and helping administrators quickly
traverse IT components within easy-to-follow topology viewers and
Delivering a Unified Experience Across Applications, Systems and
- Oracle Enterprise Manager's planned integration with My Oracle Support
will enable customers to take advantage of a unified experience across
applications, system and service management areas. These capabilities
would be accessible from within Oracle Enterprise Manager, eliminating the
need to log-in to a separate system and enabling a comprehensive management
and support view from a central console.
- Through proactive patch notification, recommendations and automated
processes, customers can achieve greater insight into their Oracle software
stack, streamline manual tasks, improve quality of service and customer
satisfaction, and reduce downtime and maintenance costs.
- "Today's demonstration provides a glimpse into the groundbreaking
capabilities of the future of Oracle Enterprise Manager. With Oracle
Enterprise Manager's forthcoming support for Oracle Fusion Applications and
its new integration with My Oracle Support, Oracle customers will be able
to further realize the true power and savings of top-down application
management," said Richard Sarwal, Oracle senior vice president, Product
