Enterprise Manager New Features presentation

Learn how to properly architect and deploy your Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c implementation, including designing for high availability and scalability. This session focuses on the essential tasks an implementation team must do to ensure Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c rollouts occur in a timely fashion and deliver a solid foundation for exploiting the marquee features of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. Topics such as users, roles, groups, templates, and incidents are discussed, plus key architectural decisions.
