I have done gigs with SQL Server, DB2 and Postgres and I have never encountered OEM 12c as monitoring software of choice. It is used mainly for monitoring Oracle. Which tells me all I need to know about the perception of the tool. The main question is not the one about availability of plugins, the main question is the one about the number of users. And somehow, I don't think there are many of those using OEM 12c to monitor SQL Server. I can make a case for Nagios or Zabbix in a minute, and price remains the same. And so can any Windows, Linux or MySQL administrator.
