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

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.
