7 Good Reasons to Upgrade E-Business Suite to the cloud

As promised here is blog Part 2: Why Upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite 12 in the cloud?

7 Good Reasons to Upgrade to E-Business Suite 12 in the Cloud:

1)   Take advantage of new and improved features: from global sub-ledger accounting to mobile access for supply chain management to built-in extensions for information search and discovery. If you haven’t checked out the latest features yet, there are over 1000 EBS 12 enhancements.

2) Plan now to address any ongoing Oracle Support considerations and regulatory compliance requirements. Based upon that information alone, you should have an EBS upgrade strategy and planning well underway.

3) Customizations got you worried? Expedite your next Oracle E-Business Suite upgrade – have Oracle identify all customizations, reduce un-needed customizations (EBS 12 has built-in many of your customizations) and during the upgrade keep all necessary customizations to run your business.

4) Migrating EBS to the cloud allows parallel migration and testing. Therefore no extra hardware purchases for the testing and upgrade. Business disruption is minimized. And, by moving to the cloud, this provides for smoother future upgrades that are based on your own timeline.

5) Oracle Experts will upgrade and run your EBS applications for you in the cloud. Free your IT resources to develop new services and work on projects that are critical to business innovation and competitiveness. Your IT resources will not be inundated with upgrade tasks!

     6) Reallocate precious IT dollars to other projects, eliminate CapEx costs.

7) Oracle minimizes business risk by having enterprise class cloud services under stringent SLAs designed to run your business applications for you such as:

a. Enterprise grade infrastructure

b. World-class security and identity management

c. Best practices in regulatory compliance: from classified federal gov’t standards, to healthcare HIPPA standards to meeting Financial Services requirements (PCI DSS)

Upgrade Oracle E-Business Suite to the Cloud – How to Get There from Here!

Written by: Lisa Schwartz

Recently I was on a business trip in the New England area. Rather than use my phone for mapping instructions, I asked a local resident for directions to a nearby restaurant. The response was: “ya can’t git thar from heeyah.” (Translated: you can’t get there from here.) I loved the response and my curiosity was peaked. Surely there must be a way to get to my destination, right? Yes, but as our local resident implied, some roadmaps are more circuitous, and harder to follow than others.

It made me think of our enterprise application customers considering the cloud and now wanting answers to practical questions such as – “how do I get there from here? And, which of my applications are best suited for the cloud and what do I do next?”

For those customers that are currently on Oracle E-Business Suite 11.5.10 or below, there is a simple cloud roadmap. You really can get there from here, and more easily than managing it all in-house!

So How Do You Get There From Here?

Oracle has a program called Oracle Upgrade Factory for Oracle E-Business Suite 12. It offers a unique approach, seamlessly bundling Managed Cloud Services and Oracle Consulting Services together for an entire Oracle E-Business Suite upgrade and migration to a managed private  cloud. Read the Oracle Upgrade Factory Solution Brief here.

This will get you up and running in the cloud in the shortest period of time and with the least amount of overhead.

It starts with contacting a Managed Cloud Services representative who can share the Oracle Upgrade Factory Roadmap with you and arrange for a CEMLI (customization) inventory and analysis of your current E-Business Suite implementation.
