Oracle Database Requirements

Oracle Communications Data Model requires Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition (11.2.0.3 or later).

Installation of the Oracle Communications Data Model component requires the following database options:

Tip:

To confirm that you have Oracle Data Mining and OLAP options installed, follow the instructions outlined in "Confirming that Oracle Data Mining and OLAP Options are Installed".

Note:

When you install Oracle Database ensure that the database character set is Unicode (AL32UTF8) to support multilanguage installations; Oracle Communications Data Model supports the installation of English and nine other languages.

After you download and install the database, upgrade to the latest patch. Patches are available from My Oracle Support at the following location:
