Oracle EBS Global User Survey Insights
Join in on a review of results and insights from a survey of Oracle EBS users around the world.
Economic uncertainties and business demands are causing IT teams to make some major decisions for their organizations today. And with no Oracle EBS 12.3 release on the horizon, and 12.1 moving into sustaining support in December 2021, users are facing some serious questions about their roadmap: Should you upgrade and be faced with continuous updates for the next 10 years? Should you move to the cloud? Can you continue innovating on your current release? How will any of these options impact your organization and generate the most value for your business?
Oracle EBS customers were surveyed and asked of their opinions about decisions they’re making around these topics. Discussion focuses on how these decisions will impact how your company will survive, stabilize, and thrive moving forward.

Survey Report: European Licensees’ Insights into the Future of Their Oracle EBS Roadmaps
Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) licensees in Europe want to optimize the value of and lifespan for their current releases. However, Oracle seemingly has another strategy – that might include forced upgrades and self-serving roadmaps. To find out how European licensees are handling their Oracle strategy, planning for the future, and implementing alternate strategies, Rimini Street partnered with IDG to survey hundreds of EBS customers across the globe in diverse industries.

5 design issues to avoid in your Oracle roadmap
You have made significant investments to implement highly functional, stable enterprise software systems, which likely include customizations and add-ons tailored for your specific business. Many IT reams who historically followed Oracle’s applications roadmap are being driven down a path of de-support, artificially forcing upgrades, and/or rip-and-replace of these reliable and robust platforms to Oracle SaaS. Before you make any decisions around your short and long-term strategy, it’s important to realize what you are getting in exchange, how much it will truly cost and what level of risk it imposes on your ability to deliver on business-driven IT initiatives.
In this 30-minute webinar, you will hear about the five most critical design issues to avoid while defining your Oracle roadmap, particularly in the context of your critical business-driven requirements. Frank Reneke and Jason Kotsaftis share real-world examples of clients who freed themselves for the locked-in risks and costs associated with vendor-dictated roadmaps for their Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Hyperion, Siebel and other back-office applications.
The Oracle EBS 12.1 Support Countdown Has Begun
Every Oracle EBS licensee running the 12.1 release will lose full support from Oracle by December 2021, potentially putting their businesses at risk if they do not take action.
This is forcing a choice: remain with the 12.1 release when Oracle 12.1 support moves to Sustaining Support; complete an EBS upgrade from 12.1 to 12.2, potentially costing several million dollars; purchase temporary and less-comprehensive 12.1 support extensions; or move to the cloud.
Although EBS 12.2 was released several years ago, it is still not widely adopted, leaving licensees to wonder how much new value is being delivered by Oracle for existing EBS software.
And for many IT organizations, there are much more urgent priorities these days than having to make an EBS decision of this magnitude and expense.
In this 30-minute on-demand webinar, Rimini Street discusses critical factors that Oracle EBS licensees should consider before: committing to an EBS upgrade from 12.1 to 12.2, spending even more for less Oracle 12.1 support, or moving to Oracle Cloud. Third-party support is also discussed as a solution to free up scarce IT resources and take back control of the EBS roadmap.
