We are using Oracle Apps 11.5.8 since last five years on Oracle 8i and we have huge amount of data that is hampering the performance of the application. We are planning to upgrade in near future possibly on SAP, however till we go live we need to support the business on this application . We would like to Archive old data and keep data only for 2 or 3 yrs. This would improve Application & Database Performance. We usually run reports for last 2 yrs but whenever needed we should be able to retrieve data using the same Oracle Standard & customized reports. Please let me know our options.
