In this blog we are going to show you how you can discover, centralize and monitoring your WebLogic servers using Oracle Enterprise Manager, a tool most Oracle customers already have onsite.

How to configure Enterprise Manager notifications for sending to Slack or Microsoft Teams

What happens when risk is not properly managed? In many cases, outages and security breaches result from a variety and combination of factors. Vulnerabilities may stem from ineffective, decentralized and siloed monitoring. As a consequence, the inability to correlate different monitoring data and gain insight from data can have a negative impact on systems and leave them open to unmitigated risk.

This blog addresses how the Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM) used commonly by Oracle DBAs can easily be configured to share the information it collects with Slack and Microsoft Teams to send events, and incidents or alerts to other third-party products often used by DevOps, Systems Administrators, or Operations.

Oracle Enterprise Manager provides capabilities that lead to quick response times, improved computing processes and satisfied customers. Fixing, accelerating and optimizing your environment enables performance and availability.

Smarter, Painless and Predictable Upgrades with Enterprise Manager 13c Release 5

Why upgrade to Enterprise Manager 13.5?  

The Enterprise Manager 13.5 release provides many new features in the areas of Hybrid Cloud Management, Ops Automation and Extensibility. Along with these main pillars, Enterprise Manager 13.5 is shipped with WebLogic stack, JDK 8 update 261. The repository database version certified with Enterprise Manager 13.5 is 19c in line with Oracle’s Oracle Database support policy.

Oracle has rebranded BI Publisher as Oracle Analytics Server so BI Publisher is no longer installed or configured beginning with Enterprise Manager 13.5. Starting with 13.5, a standalone rebranded, Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) will support out-of-the-box and custom reports from legacy BI Publisher. It makes Enterprise Manager lightweight and enables you to use all the rich features of OAS with the Restricted Use License for Enterprise Manager Repository views. We provide guided support to configure your Enterprise Manager installation with OAS and migrate your custom reports from BI Publisher to OAS.

Three Reasons Managing The Converged Database Should Be On Your Radar

The DBA’s challenge: Simplify administration of complex workloads to achieve scale and agility.

John Mishriky does a great job describing the converged database and, in this webinar, he asked me to talk about the managing aspects of converged workloads. Oracle has made a point of simplifying the database landscape for DBAs by incorporating new datatypes into one architecture. That means you are not standing up a myriad of different database types, each with their own tools and process, then figuring out how to integrate the data together, not to mention managing the new implementations along with everything else you’re doing.
