Most of the post on my blog relate to Data Center focus monitoring and management.

EM12c Cloud Control also allows for complete Application monitoring and management. By means of the Application Management Suites monitoring and management for the following applications are available:

  • E-Business Suite
  • Siebel
  • PeopleSoft
  • JD Edwards EnterpriseOne
  • Fusion Applications

Oracle’s blog on EM introduces a new white paper on Oracle Best Practices for managing Siebel. Checkout this post written by Scott McNeil Best Practices for Managing Siebel Configurations

When dealing with a high target volume OMS, you need to get and stay in control of its health and stability.
