Deltek Highlights Smooth Upgrade to WebLogic, Plus Cool New Features

Listen to Dmitri Tyles, Senior Director of Development at Deltek -- a global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-oriented businesses -- discuss their reasons for upgrading to WebLogic 12c and their experience with the upgrade process. Deltek has about 14,000-plus customers and 1.8 million users Dmitri Tyles, Senior Director of Development at Deltek -- a global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-oriented businesses -- discuss their reasons for upgrading to WebLogic 12c and their experience with the upgrade process. Deltek has about 14,000-plus customers and 1.8 million users around the world in 80 countries. Needless to say the stakes are high. They were able to upgrade "Costpoint" with 1,500 applications to WebLogic 12c in about six weeks. They did run into a couple defects along the way which were reported to Oracle and fixes received pretty quickly. The rest of the upgrade was pretty smooth, Dmitri says. He goes on to talk about a particular feature which was really key for Deltek -- the support Oracle RAC. WebLogic always supported Oracle RAC, Dmitri claims, but the previous solution required a fair amount of manual maintenance from a WebLogic administrator. So for example, if a RAC administrator on a database side would add another node to the cluster, a WebLogic administrator would have to go in and manually update the same settings on WebLogic Server and add this node and register it. With the Active GridLink solution that Oracle has included in WebLogic, this is no longer necessary. So WebLogic is completely aware of all the changes happening to the RAC and, as such, all this ongoing maintenance is completely eliminated.
