Chapter 3 - Review Meetings

Oracle Database Design Review Meetings

The following list of meetings can be used as a starting point in the creation of a structured application design review process:

Initial Overview of Proposed System

The kickoff meeting is held with datacenter operations support managers, operating system administrators, application team leaders, system analysts, end-user management and data administrators to discuss the application’s general purpose and function. This information will allow support technicians to determine the impact the new application will have on existing systems and allow them to begin planning the application design implementation process. The following information should be covered in this meeting:

  • General description of purpose and function

  • Application scope (enterprise wide application that affects all business units, intra-departmental that affects several business units or departmental)

  • General application size (estimated number of programs, data objects)

  • Criticalness of the application (mission critical, application critical, non-critical)

  • Application availability requirements and downtime windows

  • Application type (decision support, business intelligence, data warehouse, data mart, online transaction processing)

  • Architecture design (web server, application server, N-tier, distributed database environment)

  • Advanced features required (replication, advanced queuing)

  • Data feeds required from other architectures

  • Load processing

  • Batch processing

  • Online transaction processing
