How Toad for Oracle DBA Edition Complements Oracle Enterprise Manager

If you use Oracle technologies, you may be relying on Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) to manage your clouds, applications and databases. But if you’re responsible for multiple environments with hundreds of databases as well as Oracle Real Application Clusters (RACs) and Oracle Exadata, then OEM alone will not enable you to do your job effectively. Toad DBA Suite for Oracle can help, complementing OEM by delivering critical functionality in three key areas: performance management, database maintenance and change management. By contrasting how DBAs can use Toad DBA Suite for Oracle and OEM for common tasks in each of these three areas, this technical brief illustrates how using Toad alone, or both solutions together, can simplify Oracle database management and improve DBA productivity.
