Database Upgrade: Most important Support Notes

It's been a while ... sorry for not updating the Blog this frequently in the past weeks ;-)Notes

But now I'm back in business and today I'm updating our major slide set with some new stuff. And while I'm updating it I thought about what would be the most important MOS (My Oracle Support) Notes on Database Upgrades. 

Actually I would say you should start here - and these Notes should guide you to the most important bits and pieces around upgrades. I won't claim that this is THE final list so you might have a look into our comprehensive slide set for further details and more helpful notes and white papers:
