Oracle Enterprise Manager has a number of business benefits. First of all, it offers a centralized view of the entire hardware and software stack in a company, including the detailed configuration. It enables you to automatically discover internal IT assets, manage them, monitor their resource utilization, and as a result, helps to reduce underutilization of assets. A consolidation planner is also provided in this version, to plan a move to consolidated physical or virtual machines, and full testing of the database workload can be performed on the target systems to find out if there is any SQL regression that could impact your application's performance.
