11 11 R 12.1 Upgrade Overview Functional Architectural/Financial uptakes that benefit projects users Catch up all of 11i10 M RUP4 enhancements/patches New functionality leveraging Fusion technology Easier upgrade path if and when you decide to move to Fusion

12 12 Building the Business Case for Upgrading Evaluate the new 12.1 features in the products you are currently running – Opportunities to eliminate customizations – Greater flexibility to match the needs of your business – Opportunities for additional automation and process improvement Look for adjacent products that might add value – Many products are much stronger at the 12.1 level than they were in – Adding modules is low cost since you are leveraging the implementation work you have already done – Some customers have justified the upgrade primarily by the need to get to the 12.1 level so they could implement additional products

13 13 Upgrade Considerations Secure consulting skills early – 12.1.x implementation experience will be in short supply for the next while – The number of customers upgrading to 12.1 will be significantly higher than to 12.0 Some customers might want to consider a reimplementation rather than an upgrade Consider increasing UAT and Training timeframes – Significant number of enhancements will increase time required

14 14 Key Message to EBS 11i Customers Upgrade to EBS 12.1 and Get More Return on Your Investment Release VALUE : 12.1 provides business value across the suite in addition to the Financials focused Release 12 – Customers should evaluate the business value of the Release 12.1 – Leverage complementary Apps including Fusion Applications QUALITY Results : Customers are live today on 12.1 – New and existing customers are already live and upgrading – Customers are achieving predictable results => use OCS, Experienced SIs or Oracle On Demand.
