Lifecycle Management

Cut configuration management effort by 90%. Reduce provisioning effort by 75%. Reduce critical patching time by 80%. Save an IT department time by up to 50%.

All of these are possible with Oracle's integrated Lifecycle Management solutions. Lifecycle Management is a comprehensive solution that helps database, system, and application administrators automate the processes required to manage the lifecycle of Oracle technology. It eliminates manual and time consuming tasks related to discovery, initial provisioning, patching, configuration management and ongoing change management. In addition the solution provides compliance frameworks for reporting and management of industry and regulatory compliance standards. Finally, all of the on-premise instrumentation can be connected in real-time to My Oracle Support for complete communication between Oracle and our customers.
