Upgrade vs Re-Implementation
Every customer arrives at this crossroad while preparing to migrate to the latest offering of Oracle EBS. Currently many 11i customers are staring at a de-support deadline of Oracle EBS 11i and lower versions towards the end of 2011. Some of the concerns that come up are:

  • How will my product customizations fare during an "upgrade"?
  • What are the customizations that can be retired?
  • I have too many boundary/third-party integrations which I would need to retain. How will my upgrade strategy look like?
  • Does this give me a window of opportunity to change my financials and chart of accounts structure?
  • How do I ensure that any technology or platform investments that I make now will continue to be future proof?
  • Where does my implementation stand with respect to Fusion Applications Release?

FCS has a proven track record in aligning with the customer strategy towards addressing most of these concerns.
