In these tough economic times, organizations are trying to lower costs in all of their business operations. One key method for cutting IT costs is migration: migration to hardware that is less expensive to purchase and operate; migration to less costly operating systems; and migration away from older versions of Oracle that may require expensive extended-support contracts. This paper provides an overview of the types of migrations and their challenges, and describes the established best practices for ensuring success. It also provides details on a proven process for upgrading to Oracle11g that minimizes downtime and the risk of failure by using a data replication solution such as Quest SharePlex for Oracle.
