Transforming Legacy Databases with Oracle's Complete Data Integration Solution

Unless it is a brand new company or has built a completely new data center, I’d say every company has an outdated legacy database or an aging platform in place. These systems not only create inefficiencies and higher cost in IT operations, but also slow down the business due to reduced agility. They are simply not designed for today’s business and IT environment.

While this is a common challenge for IT organizations, and many want to bring these legacy systems up to date sooner than later, the migration itself deters some organizations, as it does not look like a trivial task. Especially the downtime is a concern when mission-critical business systems are involved.

We have a great success example on overcoming this legacy database transformation challenge and removing the hurdle around downtime. Sabre Holdings will present at OpenWorld about their use of Oracle Data Integration products, particularly Oracle GoldenGate, in migrating to a completely redesigned systems without any downtime.


It is not surprising that Sabre Holdings had to eliminate downtime in such a major project, given that its Global Distribution System for the travel industry is a highly critical system that travelers across the world depend on 24/7/365. What I find very innovative about their implementation is that they ran both the legacy NonStop system with the new Oracle Database 11g with RAC on Linux in parallel to completely eliminate downtime and have a failback option in the migration process.

I strongly recommend attending Sabre Holding’s session at OpenWorld if you have any plans for legacy database migration or database upgrades:
