You may have heard: There is good news for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) users! Oracle recently announced a new product release strategy that allows customers to access applications and technology updates on an ongoing basis without the headaches and cost of a major upgrade.
This "continuous innovation" model applies now for customers already on EBS 12.2.
For customers on EBS 12.1, it's time to "uncheck the pause button."
"The issue for the customer on 12.1 is that they didn't want to do two of these upgrades, one to 12.2 and then turn around and do another to 12.3, which we told them was coming. A lot of those customers are waiting, and not advancing, waiting for 12.3 to come in. With the announcement this week, customers really don't need to wait anymore."
– Cliff Godwin, Oracle Senior Vice President, Applications Development
During Oracle OpenWorld 2018, I spoke with Oracle's Cliff Godwin about continuous innovation for EBS 12.2, life after upgrades, revised support timelines and how to get help with on-premises software and new licenses. Get more information from the transcript of our conversation.
