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.
