iStore Accelerator : Speed up iStore site migration
Many of you have implemented Oracle iStore or planning to do so as their next big project. After more than 50 implementations of Oracle iStore in the past few years, iBizSoft team realized a big need out there to improve the migration time for Oracle iStore sites from a development server to a product server, which is a very manual time consuming process (typically 2-3 days) with chances of manual errors.
With this extended Oracle iStore accelerator, the time required to migrate is reduced to less than 30 mins and more over its free of manual errors. Here’s a snapshot of how this accelerator works for any Oracle iStore implementation on R11i or R12.X.
