Oracle plans to deliver advanced application management, monitoring, and service level capabilities over the coming months as part of its Enterprise Manager 10g product.
It will offer three Oracle Application Management Packs for Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise and Siebel. Oracle also plans to make available additional packaged applications. The packs include service management, application management and configuration management components.
Oracle said the service level management functionality will help users ensure proper service levels for their Oracle applications by capturing and monitoring the performance of critical business transactions and understanding user experience by simulating end-user behaviour.
The application performance management tool will help administrators monitor the application environment, measure end-users' experiences and identify the root cause of problems.
The configuration management tools will enable administrators to discover and manage application assets and help ensure that their configurations are in compliance with enterprise standards and best practices, Oracle said. Administrators will be able to track system changes, validate changes, and take snapshots of their environments to prevent configuration-related problems and application outages.
The Oracle Application Management Pack for PeopleSoft Enterprise is planned for release before the end of the year.
