The product I am somewhat familiar with is AppManager. We used it at my last job but my opinions come with a major disclaimer: we only used it for monitoring. I'd imagine it might be able to some things (run scripts on a schedule and the like) but we had a NetIQ admin who configured and ran the product. That said, the integration with Oracle was pretty good but not perfect. I think if you are ONLY going to use it for Oracle, Grid Control is probably the better way to go. However, if you have a heterogeneous environment and are looking to monitor systems along with databases from multiple vendors, AppManager is probably the better choice (of course, I haven't messed around with GC plug-ins yet). I don't think AppManager knew anything about RMAN and backups. Again - not saying it couldn't be scripted but it wasn't there out of the box.

Subject: AppManager from NetIQ versus Oracle OEM Grid Control

Another organization in our company wants to purchase NetIQ to replace Tivoli.

Anyone has any experience with both of these products (NetIQ and Oracle Grid Control?

Can you give me some pro's and con's between them?

Thanks in advance.
