SAP Oracle Database Upgrade 9/2/2013

As part of the preparation for upgrading to the new SAP applications, the underlying Oracle databases must be updated from version 10 to 11. It's a fairly lengthy process, and it does require downtime to SAP applications.

To protect the integrity of the data in the Oracle databases, there must be no read or write actions on it whilst the upgrade is being performed. This means, myJob, myTeam, myPurchase, uBASE, and eRecruitment will all be unavailable for the duration of the work.

With agreement by the departments of HR and Finance, the Directors of Faculty Operations, and by our change advisory board we have scheduled this work for 7am on Saturday February 9th. It is due to be completed by midday.
