When to Upgrade to Clintrial 4.3

Production Systems should run on supported software platforms.  Oracle Corporation routinely cuts support for older OracleTM Versions.  To ensure that ClintrialTM is running in a supported Oracle Environment, ClinicalSoft recommends beginning the upgrade process, to Oracle 8.1.7 and Clintrial 4.3, one year before Oracle ends extended assistance support. 

Oracle Desupport Timelines

Oracle Support is divided into 3 categories: Error Correction Support (ECS), Extended Maintenance Support (EMS), and Extended Assistance Support (EAS).  ECS is desupport earliest but as the software version has been around for a while most error corrections have been addressed.  EMS is only offered for terminal releases and is desupported next, followed by EAS.  The upgrade and validation process averages between 6 and 9 months therefore, ClinicalSoft recommends upgrading one year prior to the termination of EAS.   

Oracle support will be terminated according to the following timeline:
