New Series of EM Blog Posts

One thing I like seeing is how people use Enterprise Manager. It’s one of the most enjoyable parts of speaking at conferences (apart from the social networking, of course), because quite often the users of Enterprise Manager find ways of using the product that we in Product Management might never have thought of. Sometimes that can lead to useful product enhancements, and other times it leads to much head shaking in disbelief (but since I (more...)

BI Publisher Integration in EM12c

As some of you would already know, for my sins I am the product manager with responsibility for BI Publisher in Enterprise Manager [I must have a lot of sins because I’m also responsible for Change Management, Compliance Management, Configuration Management (these three form the Database Lifecycle Management pack), jobs, the target discovery framework, and at least part of DBaaS along with data cloning and refresh :) )]. While I was investigating another issue from a (more...)

DBaaS RESTful API Cook Book

Having a GUI tool like Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c to manage your entire data center is an imperative for most enterprises these days. But in the cloud paradigm, you must also have a uniform API that can be used use to tailor the cloud to your business processes and economic models.

Advances in Data Clone and Refresh in EM13c

Enterprise Manager 12c introduced a lot of functionality around cloning Oracle databases and refreshing the data once it was cloned. You can see some of the earlier material I have posted on this area in the following posts:

Enterprise Manager STIG Compliance Standards for Oracle Database 11gR2

This is the second of the two posts I wanted to copy from Dave Wolf’s web site. As I mentioned in the first of these two posts, Dave is a colleague of mine who used to own the DBLM area as far as the Enterprise Manager product management team is concerned. However, he has moved to another area in Oracle and I have inherited his responsibilities for change management, compliance management and configuration management, so (more...)

EM12c Compliance ‘Required Data Available’ flag – Understanding and Troubleshooting

This is the first of two posts in the area of compliance management that has been previously published by a colleague of mine, Dave Wolf. Dave has moved to another part of Oracle now, and I’ve inherited some of his reponsibilities as product manager, including change management, compliance management and configuration management, so I wanted to copy his material to my blog so it’s not lost. Thanks Dave, for putting this material together originally!

Determining What Management Packs Are Needed

In Enterprise Manager 12c, there was a little known functionality where you could check what management packs you needed to be licensed for to use a particular page in Enterprise Manager. I referred to it many times at conferences I was presenting at, and almost always people did not realize the functionality existed. Let’s see how this works.

To start with, I’m going to go to the Performance Home page for a particular database (accessed (more...)

New Features of Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c

For those of you that have been wondering why I’ve been so quiet of recent times, it’s because my wife and I took advantage of a trip to England for UKOUG in December to spend nearly 5 weeks touring around Europe (2 weeks of which was spent river cruising from Amsterdam to Budapest with the fabulous APT river cruises, something I can HIGHLY recommend if you want to see Europe!). But while I (more...)
