Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 was first released in September 2013. It introduced Online Patching to help customers ensure continuous operation of their key business process. The underlying technology stack was also overhauled and supplemented with Oracle Fusion Middleware. As a result, all standard and custom objects (customizations) need to undergo numerous code changes to ensure compliance with 12.2 and above. While Oracle provides a standard utility for remediating and migration standard objects, the utility does not apply to any non standard (custom) objects. As a result, customers must make manually remediate and migrate all custom objects to their target R12.2 instance.
Our objective was to determine if the extent of customization was universally perceived as one of the top challenges for customers who have upgraded or are planning to upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2. ennVee partnered with an independent research firm to survey 300+ IT and project leaders who have or anticipate upgrading to Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2. Respondents cover all major industries. The top reported challenges include Downtime, Migrating Customizations, and Patching and Testing.

ennVee has been helping customers eliminate a bulk of the heavy lifting by automating the R12.2 upgrade process (from Assessment to Remediation, Migration, and Testing). Our proprietary ennABLE accelerator dramatically reduces the hours associated with custom object remediation, and reduces project cost and timelines by 50%, while minimizing cutover and upgrade downtime.
