As we continue into the era of cloud infrastructure and intelligent computing, Oracle is taking steps to future-proof EBS. This is evident in their new Continuous Innovation model for E-Business Suite 12.2, which enables them to consistently deliver applications and tech stacks without any major upgrade-related downtime. Continuous integration, continuous deployment. This means there will be no phasing out of support staff for new iterations. The Oracle Premier Support Team, and Oracle Partners like Astute Business Solutions, grow alongside the software to provide better service.

E-Business Suite Modernization FAQ

We know that the world of Oracle EBS and Cloud Infrastructure is complex and often outside the wheelhouse and scope of enterprise IT departments. Astute Business Solutions lets DevOps teams focus on their primary objectives while formulating the strategy for bringing your digital processes to the cloud. From there, we can either hand off the reins to your internal IT professionals, help you automate lower-level processes, or continue to manage your cloud with flex support. 

Here’s a small list of E-Business Suite Modernization questions and concerns our enterprise clients often approach us with. If your question isn’t answered here, don’t worry, let’s chat.

What Is E-Business Suite Modernization?

Because of the variable dynamic nature of the EBS product, E-Business Suite Modernization is defined differently for each organization. 

For some, it may be to find a way to reduce customization. For others, it might be about implementing new modules. Some of our customers approach us about taking advantage of the latest enhancements, while for another customer, it might be about migration from old hardware onto something more sustainable for the long term.

How Long Does it Take to Apply an E-Business Suite PUM Image or ‘Get Me Current?’

The answer to this question depends on a few factors:

  • How far behind the latest iteration are you?
  • How much customization has gone into your environment?
  • Are you on a PeopleTools version that is supported with the current image?
  • Do you have resources ready and available to participate in code retrofitting and testing?

In many cases, organizations can apply a full E-Business Suite image or get their system current with a 90-day project or less.

What is Involved in an E-Business Suite Health Check?

We engage with you to understand numerous variables that contribute to the overall functioning of your EBS. These include:

  • Your environment, platform, and tech stack
  • Your particular EBS configuration
  • The modules you are running
  • The general operating procedures for your organization’s EBS
  • Investigation of any pain points you may be experiencing

With these inputs, we can compare your experience with the ideal experience for an organization in your industry that we’ve identified over our decade and a half of service. We then provide you with a listing of areas for improvement arranged by impact and cost. If desired, we can also engage with you to create and execute a plan to address the improvement points discovered.

How Do You Determine a Selective Adoption Strategy?

At Astute, we like to meet with you to understand the exact nature of your business culture and goals. We then work with you to outline a comprehensive strategy that you can use to guide your E-Business Suite work, all while keeping close to the direction of your E-Business Suite product management team. Each organization defines selective adoption a little bit differently, and that’s totally ok. What’s important is having a documented plan that you can share with your various departments and stakeholders to plan and execute effectively.
