Oracle Database Upgrade to 11g Release 2 with SAP Applications

Deutsche Messe began to use Oracle6 Database at the end of the
1980s and has been using Oracle Database technology together with SAP
applications successfully since 2002. At the end of 2010, it took the
first steps of an upgrade to Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2), and since mid-2011, all SAP production systems there run successfully with Oracle Database 11g.
This presentation explains why Deutsche Messe uses Oracle Database
together with SAP applications, discusses the many reasons for the
upgrade to Release 11g, and focuses on the operational top aspects from a DBA perspective.

Hands On Lab:
Upgrading an Oracle Database Instance, Using Best Practices

This hands-on lab gives participants the opportunity to work
through a database upgrade from an older release of Oracle Database to
the very latest Oracle Database release available. Participants will
learn how the improved automation of the upgrade process and the
generation of fix-up scripts can quickly help fix database issues prior
to upgrading. The lab also uses the new parallel upgrade feature to
improve performance of the upgrade, resulting in less downtime. Come get
inside information about database upgrades from the Database Upgrade
development team.

See you soon 🙂
