In this blog post Moe Fardoost describes how both Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) and Oracle Managed Cloud (OMC) can be compared with one another and gives us his view on running them together and each of them separately.
As customers roll out multi-cloud application environments, they will need to monitor and manage those applications across those multiple clouds.
