IDR Support for oracle 18C

Customer currently have a configuration to replicate Host Db2 tables to Oracle 11g using IDR QRep. They want to migrate oracle 11g to 18c as part of system-wide infrastructure migration. Our request is to support Oracle 18c by IDR Qrep.  Oracle 18c is latest version of Oracle DB. If IDR cannot support Oracle 18c, it will have a huge impact on this migration project. Estimated revenue of additional IDR is 0.3m$. Besides this case, IDR need to support oracle's latest version continuously.  Because, unfortunately, Oracle is most popular DB and we can expect many opportunities.

Please consider this request seriously.
