Purpose
Questions and Answers
 1) About 10G client support: BRM (7.3.0, 7.3.1 and 7.4) is supported against 11G R2 DB environment using the provided 10G R2 client software. One would like to know about the support for the client itself; because the 10G server environment is out of support (by the end of 2011), so does this out of support phrase also apply to the client software?
 2) One would like to know of any pre-requisite patches of the BRM application to support the 11G database.
 3) Is it correct that a base installation of oracle 11G Release 2 is needed, and no additional patches are needed on the DB ( to successfully support pipeline batch processing on the BRM side) ?
 4) This question is more on the relationship between the Application (BRM) connecting with ExaData ; are there any specific patches on Exadata with respect to BRM?
 5) The certification overview does not specially mention RAC support on 11G, can you confirm if RAC is supported on the 11G database environment?
 6) Can you elaborate on the AQ consequences in running them on the 11G environment?
 7) As per the press release at : http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/364536 ; about the BRM certification and benchmarking against Exadata; this is referring to BRM 7.4 and not to 7.3.1 or 7.3.0 .  How about the same with respect to BRM731 or 730 in combination with Exadata?
 8) Are there any specific settings we need to configure in BRM 7.3.1 or in Exadata itself besides the logical ones like DB hostname to work properly with Exadata and gain (more) advantages of Exadata?
