Mission no.2 accomplished – Upgrade Secrets at OOW2009

Oracle Open World 2009 – our Upgrade Development Group was happy to welcome more than 300 customers in this years talk
The Best Kept Secrets of Oracle Database Upgrades
highlighting 8 upgrade secrers and 6 upgrade myths.


Roy Swonger, Director Upgrade & Utilities Development, Carol Tagliaferri, Snr Manager Upgrade Development and myself run this years talk together. We put a strong focus on typical pitfalls such as not running the pre-upgrade check tool, not preserving sufficient performance information before the upgrade and talked about fallback strategies and successful Oracle Database 11g upgrades as well. Just by the way, we also did launch the download of the pre-upgrade check tools utlu102i.sql, utlu111i.sql and utlu112i.sql. This will give you the possibility to access the tool without preinstalling software. Just access the MOS Note:884522.1.
