CP1592 ‘Upgrade of NHHDA and EAC/AA systems from Oracle 12c to version 19.21’
Formal title: Upgrade of NHHDA and EAC/AA systems from Oracle 12c to version 19.21
Upgrade NHHDA and EAC/AA systems to the latest available version of Oracle 19.21.
The current versions of NHHDA (Non Half Hourly Data Aggregation) and EAC/AA (Estimation of Annual Consumption/Annualised Advance) system applications that Elexon provides to Party Agents run on Oracle 12c, for which Oracle Corporation withdrew application support in 2022. This CP proposes to upgrade EAC/AA and NHHDA to the latest available version of Oracle 19.21. Where possible, it leverages cost savings by aligning with Elexon’s planned update to other BSC central systems.
The upgraded version of the NHHDA and EAC/AA systems will maintain compatibility with the latest fully supported Oracle Forms release for both server and client components.
