    The Best Upgrade & Migration Strategies – or Things to Avoid

    • What if you have more than a few databases? What is the best strategy to keep them current, upgrade and/or migrate them in a regular cycle without taking all your available resources? And what can be automated?
      This talk will not only highlight successful customer upgrade projects but also showcase techniques to automate your upgrade and your patching with two different examples of customers with a range between 300 and 1700 databases. Furthermore there are things and habits to definitely avoid as otherwise things get really

Hope to see you there!
