While implementing MySQL for a new development project may be easy, migrating existing databases, data and applications to use MySQL is not. In this presentation, we will answer questions including:
What are the major challenges to overcome to consider MySQL for some portion of your business?
What are the issues in application portability?
What are ideal applications to consider for migration?
Tools, Products and options for easy migration?

You may find Continuent Tungsten for Oracle as an interesting addition for your migration talk. Continuent Tungsten offers an open source based real-time replication from Oracle to MySQL (and back if needed) at far more attractive TCO level than any of the native solutions from Oracle.
Continuent Tungsten for Oracle is also much lower cost alternative for Streams and Data Guard in Oracle only environment. Granted that these two are very capable (read: complex to use) solution and we do not aim to compete directly with them, but we do offer much easier to use solutions that cover most of the basic requirements, plus some.
