12.1.0.4 is HERE!! :)

After many months of work, Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12.1.0.4 has finally been released. It’s a pretty big release, both in terms of the number of enhancement requests that have been added as well as the amount of new functionality. Broadly speaking, the main areas of enhancement in this latest release are:

  1. Framework enhancements, such as the Security Console, private roles, credential enhancements, aggregate target privilege, improved plugin deployments, enhanced target down detection, …
  2. Cloud / DBaaS improvements, including a new self-service framework, more comprehensive service types, enhancements to data cloning, extensible chargeback and metering, simplified setup via Rapid Start Kit 2.0, …
  3. Database Lifecycle additions, like out of the box compliance support for STIG and related frameworks, enhanced automation support for patching and upgrade, detection and management of sensitive data using Enterprise Data Governance, …
  4. Middleware changes, such as SOA provisioning and cloning, JVMD as a Service, IdM patch automation, an enhanced Middleware Summary page, improved SOA tracing, …
  5. Database enhancements, including the AWR Warehouse, an enhanced Exadata cell and storage performance home page. In-Memory Column Store support, …

Since it’s such a big area to cover, Pete Sharman and I are going to share the workload in blogging about it. As we complete blogs in individual areas, the list above will turn into a set of active links, so keep coming back to see what we’ve been able to add!

    Hi Kellyn,

    I am trying to find documentation related to AWR Warehouse, but i am not able to find that in 12.1.0.4 documentation. Maybe i missed it, would you please point me in the right direction for the documentation. We were ready to install OEM 12.1.0.3 the other day but then we found out 12.1.0.4 is out and we would rather go with that if possible as we are really really interested in AWR Warehouse.
