I would seriously advise against that. I have horrible experience with OEM change pack. The company I used to work for ended up buying Schema Manager from Quest, despite having OEM Change Management license. Quest Schema Manager is a great product, but for the change management part of "Oracle Expert", its expertise consists in producing Java engine dumps, user interface crashes, management server crashes and ORA-0600 errors in the OEM database. Whoever wrote that piece of s...oftware should be a DBA in his next reincarnation and be forced to use the product.
