Payroll Customers Must Apply Mandatory Patches to Maintain Your Supportability
By DanaD on Jun 13, 2014
The HRMS Suite of products has minimum required Rollup Patch (RUP) levels as well as additional mandatory patches that our customers must apply to ensure they are in compliance for support. Without these patches, customers risk not being able to apply any fixes for issues they encounter as these RUPs and mandatory patches are the minimum patch level expected by Oracle Support and Oracle Development.
Core Payroll and International Payroll customers must apply the yearly Rollup Patch within 12 months of its issue. Legislative Payroll customers have additional requirements for the Rollup Patch, as the RUP generally is a pre-requisite for the next Year End/Fourth Quarter/Year Begin payroll processing supported by Oracle.
These minimum RUP patches and other mandatory patches for your product or legislation are created with the following goals in mind:
- Compliance: Manage the people in your organization within the requirements of a specific country.
- Supportability: Ensure you are on a common code base so that if problems are identified, patches can be readily provided to you.
- Reliability: Reliable code with multiple customer downloads and comprehensive testing.
