It all depends on your configuration/setup, since we have a Data Guard configuration we use Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape Backup using (RMAN/Veritas NetBackup). Datafiles as well as archive files are offloaded to the standyby site to minimize the impact of backup operations on the production system.
We do a full weekly database backup, daily incremental backup, and daily archive logs backup (twice aday), we back up to disk then we do copy to tape.
For the application changes, especially if you have customization the above links should be helpful.
