Advania Seminar: Oracle OEBS R12 upgrade

News image

Advania now offers a 3 day seminar, customized to the needs of customers who work in OEBS 11i and are planning to upgrade to R12. The seminar will be based on the Advania experience of upgrading Oracle E-Business Suite from 11i to R12.

This is not a standard official Oracle course. The seminar is built on the Advania experience regarding á massive upgrade for Oracle OEBS R12 the company implemented for the Icelandic State in October 2010.

Advania prepared for the upgrade for 12 months by taking courses, doing a lot of analysis, testing and iterations of the upgrade. Since the upgrade Advania has done continous problem-shooting.

The Icelandic State has 11,000 users, 22 Oracle applications modules and hundreds of customizations. To explain the scope of the R12 upgrade in Iceland it boiled down to 31,000 work hours, 400 analysis reports and 300 customization upgrades. The project was done with a workforce of over 100 people.
 
This Advania R12 seminar has all the makings of an important part in the preparation process for a large-scale project such as this. Advania developed the seminar according to the needs the company had before the project.

Advania has accumulated a vast knowledge base of R12 and valuable experience that should be very useful for other companies that are planning similar upgrades.
