Resource-Sharing Models to Upgrade to Oracle EBS R12

February 22, 2021

Oracle E-Business Suite handles numerous mission-critical applications for your organization like Human Capital Management, Payroll, Invoicing, Reporting, and Supply Chain Management, to name a few, and it’s important that you protect your investment by keeping your EBS updated.

By the end of this year, on December 2021, Oracle EBS instances below version R12.2 will lose access to Premier Support which translates to no access to new patches, fixes, or updates. Working on an unsupported version of EBS can put you at risk of losing millions or expose your EBS to unwanted vulnerabilities.

Over the last few months, we’ve seen a spike in clients interested in sharing the responsibilities for an EBS 12.2 upgrade with IT Convergence as opposed to handing it over as a turnkey project. This arrangement is attractive for customers who want to reduce costs, minimize risks, or who want to ensure knowledge transfer to their internal teams.

To meet our client’s interest in resource sharing, IT Convergence offers proven strategic resource-sharing models to successfully complete your upgrade combining your internal staff with IT Convergence expertise across Project Management, Functional Consulting, CEMLI Remediation, and Applications DBA areas. These categories are spread out over a typical EBS 12.2 upgrade timeline.

Our goal with these models is to help you. With a unique set of knowledge on how to upgrade to R12.x, we are committed to giving you the right combination of cost, risk, and knowledge transfer for your unique project needs.

Some of our most sought after models are:

  • Fully-staffed model where IT Convergence resources are with you every step of the way.
  • Task-sharing model where IT Convergence resources only participate in specific tasks of the upgrade.
  • Kick-start model where IT Convergence resources help you in the early stages of your upgrade project.
  • A combination of any of the resource models to accommodate what works best for you.

This list is a sample of the multiple ways in which we can help you accomplish the balancing act of cost, risk, and knowledge transfer to ensure a successful EBS 12.2 upgrade experience. You can pick and choose how involved and how much time you want IT Convergence resources to take part in your project.

Many of our competitors shy away from resource-sharing and offer “all or nothing” options to upgrade your EBS. For us, it’s all about supporting your EBS 12.2 upgrade and helping you secure your investment and resources.
