No, it doesn't, primarily because a database in the Oracle context is NOT the same as a database in the SQL Server context. This is why Oracle provides the DBCA utility, to create a new database. Of course, OEM allows you to create users/schemas which are almost a direct match with a SQL Server 'database'.
