Complex enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, like Oracle E-Business Suite, serve diverse business needs and support both functional and business-level decisions.

• The basic stats of an R12

• The traditional upgrade process
• Pitfalls of upgrading and how to avoid them
• Best practices for upgrading

Video : Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 Payables Upgrade


Faced with extended support fees and required patches, Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i users are seeking a quick Release 12 upgrade. Many companies are choosing a “like for like” approach wherein uptake of new functionality is postponed until after the upgrade. However, R12 introduces new functionality for payments, taxes, invoice entry, and supplier management that must be incorporated.

Objective 1: Define a “like for like” upgrade.
Objective 2: Identify the key requirements for payables that should be taken into account when upgrading to R12.
Objective 3:  Explain the impact of a “like for like” functional upgrade approach on suppliers, invoices, payments, banks, SLA, tax and MOAC.

Going to Oracle EBS Release 12? Upgrading Is Faster, Better and Cheaper than Reimplementing

Free Webinar on Wednesday, June 19, 2013, 2 pm – 3 pm EST

Objective 1: Explain the benefits of upgrading over reimplementing.

Objective 2: Articulate how to manage obsolete configurations and still do a technical upgrade.

Objective 3: Identify ten reasons for choosing to upgrade rather than reimplement.

Many organizations think they cannot upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Release 12 because of existing setups or obsolete structures and configurations. Not true. They ARE able to change existing 11i Oracle EBS setups to meet new requirements, while preserving all history. An upgrade has a lower cost than a reimplementation, and they can change their configurations to streamline their business processes in R12.

Join eprentise CEO and founder Helene Abrams to learn how your organization can avoid reimplementation and still leverage the features of R12.
