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.

Demystifying Data Integration for Cloud

Data Integration Product Marketing Team Blog

In our screencast on Tuesday, we presented how to use data integration products to move to cloud computing successfully. If you missed the screencast you can watch it here.

In this screencast, we explained 3 key ways Oracle’s data integration products can support and enhance your cloud computing architecture. These solution areas are:

(1) Consolidation/migration to cloud without downtime and enabling highly available data infrastructure

(2) Providing data services for data-layer application integration as part of platform-as-a-service

(3) Real-time application data synchronization within private cloud, and between non-cloud and private cloud systems

In our white paper “Demystifying Data Integration for Cloud” we explain these solutions in more detail. The white paper goes into specific uses such as loading bulk data into cloud, and integrating data between on-premise systems and public cloud, as well as how to meet availability and performance related SLAs.

You can download this white paper here along with other assets describing our cloud oriented solutions.

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.
