Comprehensive Middleware Management:
This release delivers enhanced support for managing Oracle
Fusion Middleware 11g, including full configuration management and
provisioning for large-scale Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle WebLogic
Server environments. Oracle WebLogic Server is often used in an
"application grid" environment, or as the foundation for a private
cloud. Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g can greatly simplify the
management and provisioning of such deployments, including the
New Database Management Capabilities:
Providing full support for Oracle Database 11g Release 2,
including compression, change detection, partitioning, diagnostics,

Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, for managing Sun hardware
and Oracle Solaris, covers the entire lifecycle of physical and
virtual Sun environments including Oracle VM for SPARC (formerly
known as Logical Domains or LDoms) and Solaris Containers, enabling
customers to maximize the utilization of their Sun systems. As per

Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g also includes a
new release 6.5 of Oracle Real User Experience for user experience
management, Business transaction management with the ability to
drill down to and monitor transactions through IT tiers, and more
powerful business service management. The catchword is Business
Driven Application Management.
The OEM integration with My
Oracle Support Community (MOSC) is also enhanced. New 11g OEM
components for MOSC include::
OEM Smart Configuration
Management: Offers complete configuration lifecycle
management and discovery with real-time change detection for
compliance. It can simultaneously analyze millions of customer
configurations and provide IT professionals with real-time
notification of potential problems.
Workflow: Enables the selection, validation and deployment
of patches across the entire IT environment, allowing IT to help
reduce the risk and effort needed to implement recommendations and
Community-Based OEM Console:
Facilitates best practice sharing and knowledge exchange with other
members of the IT community.
One of the catchwords is also
Integrated Application-to-Disk Management. This means complete
management of the Oracle stack, including tools to manage Oracle
Applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Database, Oracle
Solaris, Oracle Enterprise Linux, Oracle VM, and Oracle's Sun
Servers. This enables IT to quickly identify root cause and, in many
cases, automatically resolve issues.
As per Chung Wu from
Oracle "For composite and Java application management, two key
pieces of technologies, JVM Diagnostic and Composite Application
Monitoring and Modeler, are now fully integrated into Enterprise
Manager so there is no need to install and maintain separate tools."
