Yes, OEM is surely wonderful.

I have witnessed the DBA 1.0 (cmdline and scripts) vs. DBA 2.0 (OEM Jockey) at Oracle Open World.

Both were to perform the same fairly complex task. They had 3 minutes each.

The 1.0 DBA went first.

He spent 1.5 minutes explaining what he was going to do.

He then spent 30 seconds doing the work.

He used his last 30 seconds explaining what he had just done.

Next 2.0 DBA took his turn.

It was really quite different. All the neat and orderly menus clearly marked this as a superior method.

The 2.0 DBA frantically pointed and clicked the entire three minutes, explaining the operation he went.

He did manage to finish up in 3 minutes, pointing and clicking the entire time.

Yes, it was truly wonderful.
