Best Practices for Provisioning Databases for Test & Development - Oracle Applications
Organizations maintain on average 8 to 12 database copies per production application which are typically used for testing, development, training and QA. As production databases get larger, the traditional approach of generating non-production copies incurs significant costs. This paper from Applimation, now Informatica, provides information on best practices and new technologies in provisioning databases for test and development environments that enable significant cost savings and regulatory compliance. By following best practices, organizations save time and resources while streamlining database provisioning processes.
