I’d like to thank everybody who attended my Upgrade and Migration workshop in Albany yesterday. We had a good crowd with some very insightful questions. As a reminder, you can download the latest copy of the slides here (this is the same link that you’ll find in the Slide Download center on the right sidebar of this blog).
I did get a few questions asking when the next upgrade workshop would be. The answer is May 15, in New York City. This is organized by our Public Sector pre-sales team.
Oracle 11g Database Upgrade Seminar – NYC
Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Budget and resource constraints are leading the government towards consolidation, virtualization and the cloud to optimize efficiency and streamline operations. Where should government start in achieving these goals?
A step in the right direction is to upgrade your databases to Oracle 11g. Oracle is helping organizations deliver a higher quality
of service to citizens, employees and other stakeholders, while reducing the cost of computing through consolidation, reduced
storage and the elimination of idle redundancy.
With Oracle 11g, organizations:
- Deliver more information with higher quality of service
- Make more efficient use of budgets
- Reduce the risk of change in data centers
“We have achieved all of our goals in migrating our Oracle applications to Red Hat Linux and Oracle Database 11g. We have
increased performance by 30%, we have had little to no unplanned downtime, and to top it off, we have saved US$200,000
annually in licensing and maintenance costs and avoided US$250,000 in additional hardware expenses.” – Angelo Romano, IT
Manager, Office of the Comptroller, State of Connecticut
This seminar will provide everything you need to know about upgrading to Database 11g including:
- All the required preparatory steps
- Database upgrade strategies
- Post-upgrade performance analysis
- Helpful tips and common pitfalls to watch out for
