Oracle GoldenGate AppAdvantage in Action at Land O’Lakes, Smuckers, and Veolia Water

Author: Irem Radzik, Senior Principal Product Marketing Director, Oracle

Originally Published on Data Integration Blog

On Tuesday at OpenWorld we had the honor to host a panel with GoldenGate customers: Land O’Lakes, Smuckers, and Veolia Water. Besides giving us yummy nutrition and healthy water, these companies have another aspect in common. They all use GoldenGate to boost their ERP application.

Veoila Water’s Pierre Kerrinckx came from their HQ in France for this panel and spoke to us about the database migration project for their JD Edwards ERP system. Using GoldenGate Veolia was able to migrate from Oracle Database 10gR2 on AIX 5.3 Oracle 10g R2 to Oracle Database Aix 7.1 Oracle 11g R2 and did so with only 2 hours of interruption to JD Edwards end users. Pierre mentioned, the other benefit of GoldenGate was the ability to switch back to the old environment if needed.

Land O’Lakes’ Mark Kohls talked about their use of GoldenGate for their JD Edwards ERP system supporting the Purina business line. Land O’Lakes had to migrate enterprise-wide JDE Xe ERP system to new database and application server platform with minimal downtime to the business. While their goal was to have less than 8 hours of downtime, with GoldenGate they limited downtime to 30 minutes.

Both Veolia and Land O’Lakes used GoldenGate in an Active-Passive fashion, meaning that the new environment was not used simultaneously with the old one, and the users migrated all at once. GoldenGate provides Active-Active migration model too, if the company prefers to do a phased migration and truly zero downtime.

Smuckers's Neal Indermuhle had a different story to share. He talked about operational reporting for their critical Oracle E-Business Suite and how using Oracle GoldenGate helped the company to achieve the near real-time data they need in making critical business decisions. Neil shared that the replication latency averages less than 10 seconds and Oracle GoldenGate Veridata is leveraged to validate synchronization.

I would like to thank Pierre, Mark, and Neal for sharing their best practices, and taking tough questions from the audience. If you would like to learn more about Oracle GoldenGate’s solutions for JD Edwards, E-Business Suite and other key Oracle Applications please check out our new resource center with recorded video presentations and detailed white papers.

Leveraging Data Integration for Successful Cloud Deployments

Data Integration Product Marketing Team Blog

Cloud adoption has been rising in recent years. According to our survey conducted with Oracle users, 38% of the respondents already have implemented a private cloud architecture. It is not surprising if you consider the benefits of cloud computing, ranging from agility and scalability to cost savings. Faced with today’s cost pressures and demand for innovation, companies choose to move to cloud architectures; private, public, or hybrid (consisting of both). And, you may be part of one of the many organizations that already started or plans to move to cloud.

The question we want to tackle is: what happens to your enterprise data when you move to a private or public cloud? In today’s screencast we will be discussing data integration technology’s critical role for cloud.

We invite you to view this screencast part of The New Business Imperative: Social, Mobile, Cloud series to learn more about choosing the right data integration technology for cloud computing, and how Oracle Data Integration products can make your cloud implementation a success.

Introducing Oracle Public Cloud at Oracle Open World 2011

By Sandeep Banerjie, Oct 5, 2011

Larry Ellison announced the Oracle Public Cloud today! For those of you who missed this exciting announcement live, let me quickly summarize it for you:

The Oracle Public Cloud is a suite of Oracle applications, middleware and database offerings delivered in a self-service, subscription-based, elastically scalable, reliable, highly available and secure manner. Oracle provides hosting, management, software updates, and world-class support for these offerings.

The Oracle Public Cloud includes the following services:

Application Services

  • Oracle Fusion CRM Cloud Service
  • Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud Service
  • Oracle Social Network Cloud Service

Platform Services

  • Oracle Database Cloud Service
  • Oracle Java Cloud Service

So what’s unique about Oracle Public Cloud?

It is an enterprise cloud for business. It is an integrated suite of services spanning Oracle's complete portfolio based on open Java and SQL standards offering flexible cloud and on-premise deployment. The services offered in the cloud are based upon Oracle's complete portfolio of best-in-class solutions. They are fully integrated together so IT departments do not have to unify the solutions they buy, and the cloud provides an extensive array of timely and relevant 3rd party content to enrich applications. Applications can be built or extended using standards-based technology such as full Java EE applications and SQL. Organizations can deploy Java applications with no changes onto our cloud, customize Fusion Applications, and develop new custom applications. There is easy instant provisioning with a transparent, predictable pricing model that is based upon monthly subscriptions and consolidated billing. Additionally, applications and end users can move from Oracle Public Cloud to on premise and back. Finally, the cloud is based upon Exalogic and Exadata, offering superior reliability, performance, and elastic capacity.

To learn more about Oracle Public Cloud and get a first hand view of the different cloud services, be sure to attend the “Oracle Powers the Cloud” day at Oracle OpenWorld on Oct 6 (Thursday). It’s going to be an action packed day with keynotes, 25+ cloud sessions, and 15+ demos.
