UPK Premier Support Ends in April 2019

Oracle discontinues the development of User Productivity Kit. No major feature release will follow the current 12.1 version. As indicated in the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy document, premier support will end in April 2019, 5 years after the initial release. Customers who have purchased extended support with version 11.1 will be supported until March 2020, provided that they upgrade to 12.1. Sustaining support will be provided after premier/extended support ends.

Oracle plans to release a final Enablement Service Pack (ESP 5) short before the April 2019 date.

Oracle does not have a replacement product. Possible migration options are currently under evaluation, additional information will be published as it becomes available.

    What? We just got this implemented. This is a pricey product. Is there an effort being taken to find a replacement?
  • Tamas Szvitacs Wednesday, January 10, 2018
    Yes, Oracle is evaluating migration options. Details will be communicated as they become available.

    Would love an update on migration options. But honestly, hate that Oracle is no longer supporting this and good ole' Tutor. :(

    What sort of migration options and how labour intensive will this be? Does anyone know of a good replacement for UPK? I have hundreds of UPK's developed; what now??

    Support ends but its use doesn't. As long as you don't upgrade desktops to a current unsupported version use should be uninterrupted. There are other solutions out there that are as good and in some cases improve on the UPK application - we are looking at Larmer Browns portal which is strikingly familiar!

    Hello -

    Is there an update yet on an alternative for UPK for use with Oracle Cloud Applications?

    Thank you.

    Oracle is working on stretching UPK premier support. A new announcement will be posted soon.
