Something to chew on at lunch

For Oracle customers who are on Oracle version 12.1, they should have upgraded to Oracle 12.2 by July 2019.

For Oracle Database 11g Release 2 customers, you should already be on Oracle version 12.2 or even 18c. As you upgrade to Oracle Database 12c Release 2, learn how you can modernize your infrastructure on the latest Oracle Engineered systems with zero downtime and zero risk.

Oracle Database 19c, now available for on-premise customers, has been generally available for Oracle Cloud and Engineered Systems customers since January 2019. Soon, you will be able to unlock the full potential of the new database features and transform your IT operations.


It’s our mission to help users understand Oracle products and educate the IT community on proven cost effective solutions that meet industry best standards.
