Get upgrade and patch advice from Xynomix, the Oracle Gold Partner
Oracle upgrade their database offering every few years to remain in position as the market leaders. Whilst it's a wise choice for them, it's fair to say that the upgrade process is seen by many users as a necessary evil.
At Xynomix, we'll make your upgrade a positive experience, where you can look forward to using the exciting new features and new applications - and avoid the disruption often associated with the upgrade. Our database administrators have extensive experience of performing Oracle upgrades to and from all versions of Oracle Database, including 10g, 10g R2, 11g, 11g R2 and 12c.
Empowering you to make the right decision for your business
We work with a number of application vendors and realise that often, the decision on whether or not it's time to perform an Oracle version upgrade is out of your control, unfortunately. By making the Oracle upgrade process trouble-free and fast, we can ensure that your database remains compatible with the applications that run on it, and the process is relatively pain-free.
Upgrading Oracle: sooner or later?
We also offer upgrades for when different Oracle versions are de-supported, which last happened in July 2013, when Oracle 10g was de-supported. We can advise you on when it's the right time to make the transition to a different version: it's often better sooner than later. However, that will depend on your immediate business needs. It could be that you might be better served waiting.
As independent IT professionals, we'd rather advise you on a plan of action that's good for your business but may be less immediately rewarding to us - so we keep your business further down the line!
Oracle updates and security patches
Oracle update their products frequently to protect you from security flaws and optimise their products. Oracle recommend that these patches are applied as soon as possible after their release - even if they may disrupt business operations. However, we're able to review these patches and give you independent advice and a risk assessment, so that system disruption is kept to a minimum.
We're here to advise and help
We recognise that there is no ‘right or wrong’ answer to the question of when to perform an Oracle upgrade, with the decision being uniquely dependent on each organisation's individual circumstances. With this in mind, our team of expert Oracle consultants will work with you to create a bespoke upgrade plan that's right for you.
