Dateline (September 1, 2010, Louisville, KY) --

     Is your organization considering an upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Release 12, or have you recently performed a new installation or upgrade to Oracle EBS R12?  As an Oracle Applications DBA, you may find that managing Oracle EBS R12 is substantially different from its R11i predecessor.  Administering Oracle EBS R12 can be made easier with the Oracle R12 Applications DBA Field Guide, a portable reference manual that is now available.  The guide is brought to via the partnership between author Elke Phelps and the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG).

     The Oracle R12 Applications DBA Field Guide is the second edition book authored by Elke Phelps.  The new edition provides essentials for administering the updated Oracle Applications tier and technology stack, including Oracle 10gAS and Oracle Database 11g. The book includes guidelines and references to guide you through the management and deployment of Oracle EBS R12. Included in the guide are topics ranging from architecture, configuration, installation, cloning, patching, monitoring, troubleshooting to performance tuning.


Excerpt from the foreword by Steven Chan, Oracle E-Business Suite Development, Oracle Corporation,

“In the first edition of the guide, the authors and reviewers managed to distill hundreds -- if not thousands -- of pages of the relevant Oracle manuals, release notes, ReadMes, Knowledge Base documents, and their own hard-won expertise, into a dense but remarkably-compact volume.

It wasn't comprehensive by any means, and didn't claim to be. That was its strength. It was able to see the forest for the trees. It touched on nearly everything important that a DBA would really need to know about administering an Oracle E-Business Suite environment without drowning the reader in unnecessary details…


…and it was small enough to fit into a laptop bag.


They have done an excellent job with this second edition, which has been refreshed and expanded without losing its concise and practical focus. You hold the product of many years of experience in your hands, one that I expect will save you countless hours of arduous research and painful experimentation.”


     Even for the experienced database administrator, Oracle Applications are complicated to administer, and most documentation that is available is difficult to find and understand. Whether you're an experienced Oracle Applications DBA or new to Oracle Applications, (perhaps experienced with PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, or Siebel), this book will enable and ease the administration and efficiency of day-to-day tasks.  For more information about the Oracle R12 Applications DBA Field Guide by Elke Phelps or to purchase the guide, go to
