Oracle adds new features to Oracle Enterprise Manager
Oracle has introduced a new, enhanced version of its enterprise management platform, Oracle Enterprise Manager.
Oracle Enterprise Manager is the enterprise software giant’s on-premises management platform, aimed at providing a single solution for managing all of a customer's Oracle deployments and simplifying complex hybrid cloud environments for organisations.
The announcement was made this week by Wim Coekaerts, senior VP of software development at Oracle, speaking at Oracle OpenWorld 2020, held at the Dubai Trade Centre Arena.
The new release, noted Coekaerts, which helps customers easily move their Oracle databases to the cloud, now adds functionality that automates database migration and provides a single dashboard that improves visibility, control and management for hybrid IT environments.
“Oracle Enterprise Manager’s migration capabilities provide flexibility and ease of use to accelerate and simplify the transition to the cloud. Since most large organisations have to move multiple databases to the cloud over an extended period of time, it’s critical to have a cloud migration solution that eliminates the timing and pricing pressures typical with other vendors’ rigid migration solutions,” he explained.
As more organisations across the globe move to the cloud, they are faced with complex, time-consuming, manual, error-prone migration tasks. Oracle says its Autonomous Cloud services and migration tools help customers easily move to the cloud, eliminating risks associated with migration.
IDC’s research shows that over 90% of major enterprises rely on a mix of on-premises IT, dedicated cloud environments and public cloud services, as businesses seek efficient ways to onboard, monitor and manage data across these hybrid environments.
Oracle says it is seeing significant adoption from an Oracle Cloud perspective across its stack – from a software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service perspective.
In its fiscal 2019 Q4 results and fiscal 2019 full-year results, Oracle’s total quarterly revenue was $11.1 billion, up 1% in US dollars and up 4% in constant currency compared to Q4 last year.
The company says its cloud services and licence support revenue was $6.8 billion, while cloud licence and on-premises licence revenue was $2.5 billion.
“Oracle Enterprise Manager provides enhancements in three key areas: intelligent analytics provided by the Exadata Warehouse; comprehensive lifecycle automation and control to easily adopt Autonomous Database and Exadata Cloud Service; and mobility and security through new security controls,” concluded Coekaerts.
