Analyst Report Finds Major Gains Among Private Cloud Early Adopters of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c

A new report from Crimson Consulting identifies and quantifies the benefits of private cloud computing among early adopters of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. These benefits include up to 10 times faster provisioning of full application stack on cloud while increasing productivity up to 20 percent for a typical cloud rollout team for higher-value tasks.

The report, titled “Real-World Benefits of Private Cloud: Early Adopters of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Report Agility and Productivity Gains,” is based on seven in-depth interviews of IT specialists at large to very large enterprises in the North American, EMEA and APAC regions.

Why Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c?
According to the report, the value of private clouds largely depends on an effective cloud management solution—in particular, one that addresses the entire cloud lifecycle. "This requires in-depth instrumentation and oversight, extensive automation across the entire stack, and high levels of application awareness in all management tasks," write the report's authors.

Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c is designed to provide exactly these capabilities.

In addition to significantly faster provisioning and major productivity gains, Crimson Consulting quantified the following savings.

  • Database as a service with Oracle Real Application Clusters: 25 hours saved per database provisioned or more than 4 times improvement
  • Database as a service using virtualization: 23 hours saved per database provisioned or more than 6 times improvement
  • Middleware as a service using virtualization: 21 hours saved per Oracle WebLogic application tier provisioned or more than 6 times improvement
  • Full application stack using virtualization: 225 hours saved per complete application provisioned or 10 times improvement
  • Oracle Self-Service Portal: Up to 4 hours saved per database deployment by eliminating most or all of the manual approval process
  • Patch management: 2.4 hours per database
  • Server/environment configuration comparisons: 1 hour per database
  • Security and compliance operations: 2 hours per database
  • Scripting automation: 1 hour per database

"Historically, it took six weeks to spin up a Siebel environment from start to finish. Now we're doing it in about six hours," a build team leader from a large healthcare firm told Crimson analysts.

"Standardized builds based on Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c templates are a massive plus," added a DBA administrator from a broadcast and telecommunications firm. "Since there’s no manual involvement, all the machines will be built identically, so you get fewer errors, lower downtime, fewer infrastructure issues, and faster application development."
