Oracle EBS Upgrade Services: Maximize the Value of Your Investment

Posted by Sreekumar Sreedharan, AVP - Practice Manager, Infosys

New technologies and ever-demanding customers are driving change and forcing organizations to rethink their existing business models. For information technology (IT) to remain responsive to business changes, organizations should invest in upgrading their IT applications and infrastructure.

In view of this, enterprises that run their businesses on older versions of Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) must focus on implementing the latest upgrades. These upgrades are necessary to ensure continued product support from Oracle as well as enable the newer functionalities of Oracle EBS R12. The upgrade journey is a challenging one that can be disruptive to business if improperly planned and managed.

  • Before embarking on an upgrade journey, enterprises should evaluate considerations such as:
  • How do we assess the complexities of the upgrade?
  • What is the time and effort required to upgrade? 
  • Which of the many existing extensions, interfaces and reports will break?
  • How can the company maximize return on investment?
  • Will the upgrade improve business processes while lowering total cost of ownership (TCO)?

Powered by Panaya Cloud Quality suite, the Oracle EBS Upgrade Solution delivers zero-touch health checks and assessment within 48 hours and simplifies the complete upgrade process by automating critical lifecycle activities.

The solution offers a comprehensive upgrade plan for organizations using dedicated dashboards that effectively plan for the impacted components. These dashboards display what needs to be fixed, what should be tested and which team is assigned while tracking the upgrade plan's progress.

By leveraging the Infosys XPRES Dev Suite, enterprises can reduce the time and effort taken for the development cycle during the upgrade. Further, code remediation through intuitive workbenches ensures seamless upgrade deployment, thereby reducing the whole upgrade cycle. 

The Test Automation Suite offers automated test execution capabilities to ensure that the enterprise resource planning (ERP) changes are appropriate. The accelerated testing solution analyzes ERP code interactions and validates them across business processes, resulting in reduced testing cycles.

The Oracle EBS Upgrade Solution provides a risk-free, faster and cost-effective solution for businesses that maximizes the value of their investments in cutting-edge functionalities.

Infosys and Panaya will launch their integrated upgrade solution at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 along with our customer Marvell Technologies. The conference will be held in San Francisco from October 26-29 2015. At the Executive Solution Session on October 28, 2015, Garret T. Fitzgerald, GE chief information officer (CIO) for ERP initiatives and strategy will discuss GE's digital journey and how it leverages automation and tools such as Panaya to keep their Oracle system updated and agile.

As Diamond sponsor for Oracle OpenWorld 2015, Infosys will play a key role at the conference. Infosys CEO Dr. Vishal Sikka will deliver the executive keynote on October 27, 2015 at Moscone North Hall D.
