Oracle Continuous Innovation on Oracle E - Business Suite 12.2

Andrea Seale
SR. Principal Support Technical Analyst


Oracle has announced a “Continuous Innovation” release model for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, delivering ongoing applications and underlying technology stack updates without a major upgrade.  At the same time, we announced Premier Support for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 through at least 2030.


This means that Oracle E-Business Suite customers already running on 12.2 can continue to access new application functionality and separately uptake later versions of underlying technology for years to come, without the time and expense of a major release upgrade.

With Continuous Innovation now available for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, customers can expect:

  • Ongoing Applications Updates —ongoing updates to Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 applications code, analogous to the 12.2.x patch updates we have made available approximately annually. Updates will be cumulative and will combine bug fixes and new features into a consolidated, suite-wide patch set that can be easily applied with Online Patching.
  • Ongoing Technology Stack Updates —ongoing updates to allow for the needed refresh of the Oracle Fusion Middleware platform technologies underlying Oracle E-Business Suite. These will allow customers to obtain new versions of the technology without upgrading their Oracle E-Business Suite applications code.

In addition, the Oracle Premier Support policy described in "Oracle Applications Unlimited and Oracle Premier Support—An Unbeatable Combination" now applies to the 12.2 release. Per the policy, Oracle will not discontinue offering Oracle Premier Support on the Continuous Innovation releases prior to 2030 and, beginning in 2019, we are committed to annually review whether or not to extend the Premier Support offering for an additional year on such Continuous Innovation releases for on premises applications.

With Continuous Innovation now available for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, Oracle E-Business Suite joins other Applications Unlimited product lines (PeopleSoft, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and Siebel) that also have pledged to provide Continuous Innovation and Premier Support through at least 2030 for their existing releases.
