I started my career with E-Business version 11.5.7 (and 8i database was just released) , How can I forget that stable version of 220.127.116.11 database or 50-60 set of red CD’s with E-Business Suite software on it.
I still remember that cramped Server room of my first company where I used to stand hours installing E-Business changing one CD after another (because no one at that time told me that I could create Staging Area. Silly me ;-) and yes I now smile when I think about it.
a) Cloning (12.2 has dual file system and now with 12.2.5 you can clone both file system in one go)
b) Patching Tool (ADOP is new tool to patch in 12.2) got new parameters to support lot more functionality
We noticed a huge opportunity in 12.2 Upgrade (Imagine all those hundreds and thousand on 11i and R12.0 customers and another few thousand customers who are still on 12.1) and started working on 12.2 Upgrade as soon as it came out 2 and half years back .
There is no looking back since then and I with my excellent team of certified Oracle Consultants we upgraded close to 30 customers across globe right from small to medium to big.
On our Journey, I with my team Upgraded hundreds of terabyte of data, database upgrades both to 11gR2 and 12c, applied few thousand patches and closed hundreds of Service Requests .
In this workshop, We also share lessons learnt on close to hundreds of real upgrades on our customers and plenty of upgrade issues while lot of other Oracle Apps DBA’s like you, who went through our Upgrade Workshop.
In next few posts over few days (stay tuned and watch your inbox) I am going to share 9 phases of Upgrades and what things you need to learn to prepare yourself for 12.2 Upgrade .
