Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Upgrades

Oracle R12 is here with some great new functionality. Some of our clients who have upgraded to the Oracle E-Business Suite R12 are experiencing some great benefits including reduced customizations, faster and simplified reporting, increased visibility into performance metrics and lower operating costs.
However, with any upgrade, there are always challenges as well as quirks and interesting factoids you find as you go through the implementation. This makes the whole process so much fun!


Reasons to Upgrade

With the exception of guaranteeing ongoing product support, organizations typically only consider upgrading if there is a compelling business reason. Some of the major benefits of upgrading include:

Obtaining a more robust and scalable architecture

Upgrading can provide advanced database capabilities, better integration, newer extensions and personalization, and improved security for enterprise applications.


Enhancing efficiency

Upgrading can lay the foundation for a shared services model, enable the easy design of multiple tax models, and introduce newer, more flexible accounting elements.

Streamlining compliance

Obtaining compliance with industry regulations can be greatly simplified by upgrading to a newer version of the application. For example, new features in Oracle EBS R12 include alternate accounting representations, revenue management, and transaction sequencing.


Enabling more efficient collaboration

Enterprise application extensions can provide a platform for collaborating with all trading partners – leading to greater efficiencies in inventory, procurement, and logistics costs.

Facilitating better reporting

Newer versions of enterprise applications often have improved reporting capabilities. Oracle R12 Flexi Reporting enables IT teams to easily create user-friendly reports, with higher presentation quality

ERP Software Solutions

    • Manufacturing ERP Software is not all the same. Historical ERP software solutions involve painful implementation projects followed by challenging periodical updates – often forcing companies to go years without updating their ERP system. Meanwhile these same companies lose value day after day as new features and functions elude them, only implemented with the next painful ‘big bang’ upgrade.
    • Modern Manufacturing ERP Software from Oracle takes a different approach. No more waiting. No more upgrades. New features are added as you go, shared instantly with all Oracle cloud customers. These customers not only realize renewed value instantly, but share best practices real time with other peer customers, all of which have access to exactly the same features, functions and capabilities enabled by a true single ERP software code SaaS cloud offering.
