Oracle is the most widely-used relational database in the world. This course will teach you how to evaluate the database for issues that might interfere with the upgrade, and methods to migrate your database in complex environments.
Many companies do not want to move, or cannot move to the cloud because of their complex business requirements, so they must upgrade to the latest database version in house.

First, you will learn the reasons Oracle 12 Release 2 upgrades are different than previous upgrades particularly when working with pluggable databases. Next, you will learn the basic upgrade methods utilizing tools such as the database upgrade assistant and the database parallel upgrade utility. Finally, you will learn the differences between an upgrade and a migration, and come away with tools to meet both challenges. When you're finished with this course, you will have skills and knowledge to upgrade and migrate your database to Oracle 12 release 2 even in the most complex environments.

Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Tim Boles and welcome to my course Oracle 12. 2 Upgrade. I'm a senior manager at Hitachi Consulting with close to 20 years of Oracle database management experience. Did you know that Oracle Relational Database is the most popular database management system worldwide? With each version of the database Oracle, introduces new capabilities and some old ones are phased out. This course will help you plan and execute a successful upgrade to Oracle 12 Release Two. You'll be given direction on setting up your own test environment, guided through the pre-upgrade steps, provided direction and hands-on experience to determine which upgrade technique is best suited for your situation, and you'll be led in the post-upgrade tasks. By the end of this course, you'll know several different methods you can apply to your own environment to upgrade your databases to Oracle 12 Release Two. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with managing any version of an Oracle database. From here you can continue learning about Oracle 12 with my OCP courses like OCP 12C DBA Enhancements, the OCP 12C Using New Security Features, or OCP 12C Performance Enhancements. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn different paths of upgrading in the Oracle 12. 2 Upgrade Course at Pluralsight.
