Upgrading from Oracle EBS 11i to R12.2.6

A direct-sales company has used Oracle E-Business Suite to run almost every aspect of its business for decades, but their current release (11i) was unsupported by Oracle, and heavily customized with many integrations to disparate systems.

The lack of automated and self-service functionalities forced employees to rely heavily on the IT staff for tasks like submitting and approving expenses, procurement, order management, etc. 

With ennVee's help, they successfully upgraded to R12.2 in less than a year, which enabled them to delay an eventual cloud migration by at least three years, and switch to a third party support provider to save up to $1M annually.

Why This Is Important

At some point in time, most Oracle EBS customers have considered whether to upgrade to R12.2 or migrate to cloud. If you are debating which route is right for you, this white paper will show you a use case for choosing an R12.2 upgrade to delay a migration to cloud, and help understand what to expect when upgrading from 11i to R12.2.6.

This white paper covers six areas:

  1. The 11i to R12.2.6 technical upgrade process and iterations.
  2. Retrofitting Oracle EBS 11i customizations to R12.2.6. 
  3. How ennABLE was used to identify all customizations and required code changes.
  4. Key Customizations and Process Improvements, including the implementation of Mobile iExpense and iProcurement modules.
  5. Simplifying complex integrations between Oracle EBS and 3rd party systems, including: Vertex Cloud, CardConnect for Credit Card Authorization, and Customer Bank Account information.
  6. A use case for choosing to upgrade to R12.2 rather than migrate to Cloud.
