Upgrading Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) from 11i to 12.2 introduces numerous changes steered towards modern user experience, functionality advancements, streamlined installation, operational efficiency, and increased performance. In this post, we discuss the new features and benefits of upgrading to Oracle EBS 12.2, R12 offerings, Time, Cost, and Resources savings on the transition, and to upgrade EBS 11i instances to a single global instance of R12.

The transition from 11i to R12 is a high-stakes major initiative for any E-Business Suite (EBS) customer. Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) R12 is a significant new version with valuable new features and capabilities. Currently, most believe that some clients are forced to reimplement to take advantage of R12, but others may be lucky enough to reap the new release benefits via Oracle’s upgrade process. EBS customers with brand new implementations are not impacted by the transition complexities.

Most EBS customers upgrade if given a choice because it is the path of least resistance. Compared to reimplementation, it is simpler, requires less resources, will likely cost less, and the time-to-value is shorter. ISV’s tend to make upgrades easier than starting from scratch, if they know how and can do so at an acceptable cost. If not, individual customers must shoulder the reimplementation burden.

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.
