Sterling 9.5 compatibility with Oracle 19C

Oracle 12C is going on extended support. Most of the latest technology stack (including OMS 10 )supports the latest version of Oracle DB. Its very important to test and certify the compatibility of OMS 9.5 with Oracle 19C.

How will this idea be used?

If OMS 9.5 is certified with the latest version of Oracle. the product will continue to be relevant. Else, if 12C becomes out of support, then there would be no use to have Oracle DB as an option for OMS DB. Many clients are using OMS with Oracle as DB.

What is the idea priority? Urgent

    We understand that the user community desires to upgrade to a higher version of Oracle for various reasons. In an attempt to support our customers in the best way possible, IBM will support Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (including Oracle Database 19c) with Order Management v9.5.

    IBM does not retroactively certify higher versions of stack products, but supports field use where the product corresponding to the next available release is used (e.g. in Sterling Order Management Version 10). This support is subject to customers doing thorough risk reduction testing prior to using the newer version in production.

    NOTE: It is the customer's responsibility to test their solution end-to-end with all system functionality, including a full performance test, before deploying this version of Oracle to production.

    Please refer the link below for more details:

    Agreed with the Idea, and we are also looking for this OMS95 certification with Oracle 19C RAC at the earliest.
