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.

Compared to reimplementation, it is simpler, requires less resources, will likely cost less, and the time-to-value is shorter.
