How to Reduce: 10 Benefits of Instance Consolidation in Oracle E-Business Suite (S316469)
In this session, learn how a global automotive parts supplier merged two instances of Oracle E-Business Suite to significantly reduce maintenance costs, streamline the operation of a shared-services center, and support agile growth. Understand the roadmap to consolidation, the benefits to the business, and the results achieved. The company explored different alternatives to consolidate, including a reimplementation. Hear the business case and the benefits, including improved consolidated reporting, elimination of duplicate efforts, and shared operations with complete, consistent, and correct information. The challenges included accommodating localizations, different key and descriptive flexfields, and different configurations.
Oracle E-Business Suite 12: The Upgrade-Versus-Reimplement Decision (S316483)
An Oracle upgrade takes less time and costs less than a reimplementation. Yet, many organizations think they cannot upgrade because of existing setups, obsolete structures and configurations, or because they have multiple production instances. Learn how to avoid a reimplementation and still be able to leverage the new architecture and features of Oracle E-Business Suite 12. Many organizations are able to change existing Release 11 Oracle Applications to meet new business requirements; preserve all their history; and get to Oracle E-Business Suite 12 faster, better, and cheaper by choosing to perform a software-assisted upgrade. This session covers the basic decision process, the options and roadmap of an upgrade, and the disadvantages of a reimplementation.
