When it comes to Oracle cost containment, there is no "one size fits all" strategy.
Global organizations such as Sony and NTT have significantly reduced their Oracle database costs across a range of applications. You too can benefit from the experience of our customers by using one of these popular cost saving strategies:
New LOB Applications
Database industry experts from Curt Monash to Gartner Group advise that most new home-grown business applications can be cost-effectively deployed using open source databases. Postgres Plus provides deep Oracle compatibility, allowing DBAs and developers to implement new applications quickly, without any training.
Replication for Reporting and BI
Query, reporting and BI activities can significantly degrade the performance of OLTP applications. Many organizations address this dilemma using database replication. Postgres Plus' Oracle replication server provides real-time data warehousing at a fraction of the cost of Oracle's replication solutions, eliminating OLTP performance problems while delivering time critical information to business stakeholders.

the world's leading provider of floral related products and services, implemented the Postgres Plus Oracle replication server in six weeks.
Migrating non-Mission Critical Applications
Organizations that need to systematically replace Oracle databases often begin by migrating non-mission critical applications because they can achieve rapid cost savings while proving the feasibility of their migration strategies. EnterpriseDB engineers frequently perform migration feasibility assessments on existing Oracle applications to help customers quickly determine which databases can be migrated in the shortest time, at the lowest risk.
Migrating Mission Critical Applications
Driven by M&A and consolidation activities, some organizations need to migrate large-scale mission critical applications to less expensive infrastructures. Postgres Plus combines deep Oracle compatibility with a proven, high-performance OLTP database foundation to support the most demanding Oracle migration needs. Further, EnterpriseDB's Oracle consultants and domain experts apply our best practices methodologies to ensure that complex migrations are achieved the first time.
