Using Data Replication to Upgrade to Oracle 12c with Minimal Downtime

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 to reduce costs of extended support contracts.  

This white paper discusses the different types of migrations, their benefits and challenges. It also explains some best practice methodologies for minimizing downtime of applications on your Oracle database environment during these migrations.
