Key Considerations While Planning EBS 12.2 Upgrade
Typically, EBS upgrades are under-estimated due to inaccuracies and limited availability of data points, critical for planning. This leads to surprises during upgrade execution resulting in time and budget overruns. A careful evaluation of your environment is needed to plan and design your upgrade execution.
Upgrade Path
Upgrade Path
Multiple options varying in degree of functional changes adopted during the upgrade are available. These range from shortest and least disruptive like-to-like upgrade to transformational upgrade involving large scale changes to an existing solution. Most organizations conduct like-to-like upgrades and adopt innovations in an incremental manner subsequently through smaller, more focused projects.
Upgrade Scope
Upgrade Scope
Mostly, application upgrades also involve tech-stack upgrade, infrastructure refresh, or even re-platforming and upgrade of interfacing third party systems as well. These activities, along with current database size, the volume of retrofitted customizations also determine the downtime needed during the final production upgrade.
Code Retrofit
Code Retrofit
There are more than 50,000 changes between 12.1 and 12.2 which can potentially impact the customizations deployed. The break-fix approach of fixing only what is broken is reactive and a more scientific approach of impact assessment to drive project planning is recommended. Impact of 12.2 EBR compliance also needs to be assessed and factored into project planning.
Testing & User Adoption
Testing & User Adoption
Upgrade projects involve rigorous test iterations to ensure that nothing is broken in the upgraded environment. For a like to like upgrades, the majority of this testing is conducted by the IT team. There are additional considerations around delta training to business users as well.
