Increasingly, applications running on applications servers truly represent the customer experience. As a result, the traditional line between mission-critical and non-mission critical applications is blurring. The ongoing need for rapid and cost-effective deployment and scale, near zero downtime tolerance, the ability to upgrade and sustain live environments is a key factor for success in today’s connected IT world.

Oracle WebLogic Server is the recognized leader in the application server market by industry analysts and, more importantly, by customers who have experience using and owning several leading vendor products.

Oracle Enterprise Manager provides a comprehensive management solution for Oracle WebLogic Server
