At ITC, we embrace the fact that each company is different. Knowing that one size doesn’t fit all, we have developed three alternatives that will suit your needs when upgrading to Oracle R12.1 or R12.2.
All of our service options are designed to avoid critical interruptions and minimize downtime, while maintaining continuity as you migrate your ERP solution to a new platform – on-time and on-budget.
ORACLE EBS TECHNICAL UPGRADE
The Oracle EBS technical upgrade delivers a working R12.1 or R12.2 system, which mirrors your previous transactional processing without business process transformation. Our EBS Technical Upgrade provides a fixed price solution and is designed for organizations seeking a rapid, no frills upgrade to Oracle R12.1 or R12.2 which will get you live in just a few short months.
Each project follows a similar path:
- Assessing your existing 11i or 12.0 environment
- Validating your environment’s functional qualifications
- Verifying the count and complexity of your CEMLI (Configurations Extensions Modifications Localizations Integration Framework) objects
Throughout the duration of your project, you’ll work with a dedicated Project Manager who will coordinate with an onshore or offshore team of technical and functional experts who will support and test the upgrade process. IT Convergence has been delivering Oracle Applications Release 12 upgrades since 2007 and 12.2 upgrades since 2013. We have ample experience in a variety of environments (RAC, Distributed ASCP and SOA, among others) and employ consistent timelines and processes.
ORACLE EBS TRANSFORMATIONAL UPGRADE
Organizations interested in enhancing complex business processes while upgrading to Oracle R12.1 or R12.2 should consider our Transformational EBS Upgrade service. This service offering is geared towards companies with a large Oracle footprint and complex business flows, but who still does not need a full reimplementation while migrating to Oracle R12.1 or R12.2.
This includes organizations that:
- Have grown significantly, organically or due to acquisitions and mergers
- Are currently using 30 or more Oracle E-Business Suite modules
- Support multiple countries with complex localization requirements (such as Asia Pacific or Latin America)
- Maintain a complex enterprise structure such as a shared services model
Each Oracle EBS Transformational Upgrade begins with an Oracle R12.1 or R12.2 functional review, during which our team assesses your environment and identifies the gaps to be addressed (CEMLI retirement, remediation and additional extension requirements). In a second stage, our team implements R12.1 or R12.2’s new features and modules while our Education Services department develops custom curricula to train your staff on new functionalities and features.
ORACLE EBS HYBRID UPGRADE
Oracle EBS Hybrid Upgrade combines elements of our EBS Upgrade in a Box and our Transformational EBS Upgrade services to give you a timeline that is both rapid and predictable, while also including strategic configuration upgrades and new functionality process designs.

Compliance with Oracle R12.2 Standards
IT Convergence has created a Development Standards Analyzer (DSA) tool that identifies, analyzes, and reports violations to the standards in your customizations. The DSA tool provides details of the nature of the standard, reasons why it is required, instructions on fixing the issues, and impact analysis.
Oracle R12.1 and R12.2 Reimplementation
Companies choose reimplementation because they have undergone a fundamental business change or they have grown to where their configurations won’t meet the operational needs of the business. Because of a reimplementation’s cost and complexity, most customers are reticent to embark on an effort of that magnitude. Our services begin with a Foundation Analysis where we assess your Chart of Accounts, multi-organization structure, and customizations to validate that an R12.1 or an R12.2 reimplementation is the right solution for you.
To address these issues, our functional and technical experts:
- Determine whether its more cost-effective to migrate your 11i or 12.0 customizations, or eliminate them with standard R12.1 or R12.2 functionality
- Assess process deficiencies and incorporate best practices so as to avoid issues in the future
- Determine if a reimplementation isn’t necessary and objectives can be accomplished with alternative steps
All of this enables us to design an Oracle E-Business Suite solution that is robust enough to meet your functionality needs of today, while being scalable enough to keep pace as your business grows.
