Our customers benefit from a proven methodology, deep vendor expertise, and program and project management experience that covers the entire database upgrade or migration initiative, from strategy through to benefits realisation. Our end-to-end methodology has the following phases:

Discovery
During the discovery phase we will gather the requirements for all infrastructure and application service items needed for the upgrade or migration analysis, planning and implementation.

Analysis
Utilising the data collected in the discovery phase we will produce upgrade and migration strategies, options, risks, application dependencies, infrastructure architecture requirements and contingencies.

Planning
The culmination of the information from the first two phases will be incorporated into the finalised project plan, event schedules, configuration changes and rollback, test and acceptance plans.

Implementation
Here we perform the upgrade dress rehearsals and the upgrade live execution. Each event provides implementation control, minute-by-minute resource management, issue resolution, escalation if required, test and sign off.

Decommission
This is a key phase for benefits realisation. Timely and secure decommissioning of any redundant infrastructure ensures that overall data centre costs are contained.

Oracle 12c – The “Cloud Ready” Database
Oracle’s latest version of the database has seen major advances in the performance, reliability, security and availability, but it’s the new features in Oracle’s Database 12c that are of most interest to users.  12c introduces new architecture that makes it easy to consolidate many databases quickly, allowing you to then manage them as a private Cloud.

Multi-Tenant Architecture: 12c is now the “pluggable database” allowing customers to easily consolidate multiple databases into one container database:

  • Manage “many as one”: through consolidation users have fewer databases to manage, upgrade and backup
  • Cloud ready: taking advantage of flexible resource sharing and database consolidation eases the set-up of private Clouds
  • In-memory computing: enhanced data processing and analytical performance
  • Information lifecycle management: manage storage more efficiently with automatic data optimisation and data heat mapping

Let Inoapps help you plan your enterprise architecture for the future and for your move into Cloud computing.  By upgrading or migrating to Oracle Database 12c, you can start to see the following benefits:

  • Reduce downtime and improve business continuity with the maximum availability architecture
  • Simplify operations through consolidation of databases
  • Rapid provisioning and upgrading
  • Enhanced data security with data redaction
  • Improve performance through data compression and efficient use of storage

If your organisation is not yet utilising the latest 12c technology, upgrading will not only provide you with more efficient, reliable and secure data management for your mission critical applications, you will find that a well planned and well executed upgrade can help to improve infrastructure efficiency, and reduce IT capital expenditure and operating costs.
