I have no experience with ASM, nor any volume management software, but my guess would be that ASM doesn't add complexity, rather it shifts that area of complexity from the Unix admin to the DBA. I have the luxury of working with an excellent team of Unix admins, so I prefer to let them handle that area, but for someone who wears both the Unix/Linux admin and the DBA hats, maybe it makes sense to use ASM. Can anyone else who has worked extensively with both LVM and ASM confirm or deny that assertion?

Is it just me, or does ASM unnecessarily complicate operations?
