2 Agenda Review Process/Approach taken Review Process/Approach taken Review Core Team Review Core Team Review some technical details… Review some technical details… Questions and Answers (maybe!) Questions and Answers (maybe!) Wrap-up Wrap-up

3 The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs

4 CRP Definition: – CRP is a Conference Room Pilot –Prototyping, according to APICS …a CRP is “a product model constructed for testing and evaluation to see how the product performs before releasing the product to production” –In this case: Product … Oracle Applications 11i Testing and evaluation … The upgrade to 11i via CRP Product to Production …Releasing 11i to the end users! The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs

5 A typical upgrade using the CRP method goes like this…

6 The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs Some important things to keep in mind: Liggett upgraded from 10.7 to 11i (11.5.6) in … ‘2003 Preserving/reusing Upgrade/Testing material : Reusing Upgrade/Testing Materials saved time & money! End-users … (familiarity, reproducible results) Auditors …

7 The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs Just like riding a bike! An upgrade using previous CRP documents goes like this…

8 The Process or Approach Taken: CRPs 1)Technical Upgrades are applied 2)Rudimentary testing is performed Repeat until successful Patches/Fixes/Setups/Profiles 3)User Unit testing 4)User Acceptance Testing 5)Final approval …and then 4)Select the GoLive date, and 5)Upgrade production! UAT An upgrade using previous CRP documents goes like this…

12 Some Technical Details

13 eBusiness Suite fully supports the migration: From:Proprietary UNIX hardware/OS To:Lightning-Fast Linux OS … there really isn’t a reason to wait any longer.  Save money  Save hardware-resources  Save-software resources Some Technical Details … why wait?

Create a new Oracle eBusiness Suite 11i environment via Oracle eBusinss Suite RapidWiz (RapidInstall). Export (exp) and Import (imp) utilities then move the existing data to the new Hardware/OS Platforms Export (exp) and Import (imp) utilities then move the existing data to the new Hardware/OS Platforms No ugly Export-FileSize limits No ugly Export-FileSize limits Table-Level Row-Count/Confirmation Table-Level Row-Count/Confirmation Update the Imported eBusiness Suite 11i Database Update the Imported eBusiness Suite 11i Database Some Technical Details … overview!

17  The Source-IBM/HP/Sun (export-from) MUST use Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release or Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release 2 (9.2.0)  The Target-Linux-Server (import into) MUST use Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release 2 (9.2.0). Fortunately, eBusiness Suite eBusiness Suite Rapidwiz Installs … Oracle9i ( ) The Oracle-Squeeze -- Caveat Emptor Some Technical Details … beware!
