There are a few things to think about though. You will have two application's user bases attaching to this single database so you will need to ensure that the database is configured properly to handle the resource requirements of both. This may mean that you need a larger SGA or more memory allocated to your PGA, etc. Another thing to look out for concerns Oracle versions. You may find that one vendor will support the latest and greatest version, while the other application vendor will not. In this case, you may not be able to upgrade until both application vendors support the version you want to upgrade to.
