Most organizations are transforming themselves to digital enterprises, and IT plays a key role in this transformation. The ways applications are built, delivered, and consumed have significantly changed in the last few years.

This transition poses a lot of challenges to IT Organizations, and they need new generation tools that can manage their applications and infrastructure.

Oracle Management Cloud is a suite of next generation integrated monitoring, management, and analytics solution for IT organizations that enables a real-time, collaborative environment in which all stakeholders have a clear end-to-end view to the applications and technologies that support business services.
