Migrating from Oracle EBS to Fusion Cloud

Companies globally are contemplating moving from on-premise software from the legacy side to the cloud. Cost of ownership is a major concern experienced by users of on-premise software like E-Business Suite. This journey of migrating-to-cloud needs harmonizing of processes. However, working towards an ideal migration plan and a comfortable pace is the key in such decisions. This transition requires change management, alignment of teams and consultation on best practice

Challenges with EBS Suite

Updates and Security

With on-premise, hardware refreshes & software updates are a necessity. But moving to the latest release is often daunting, costly & requires downtime for the system, a reason why it is largely deferred by businesses. But it is essential to perform these updates to avoid the risk of vulnerability. Fixing issues & bugs takes a longer duration with delayed updates. Same is the case with security patches where regular costly updates are to be performed to ensure security.

Total Cost of Ownership

The TCO with on-Premise is higher owing to the initial hardware and software investment and the subsequent costs involved with the refreshes and updates.

Data Management

A typical concern is the building up of out-of-date and disorganized information in an EBS environment. This may lead to lags, inaccuracies & inefficiencies. Transient data and obsolete transactional data must be repeatedly purged from the EBS platform so that only relevant data is worked upon for business insights.

Metalink support

For EBS 12.1 users, the support ends by December 2021. During this period, the support is limited to Severity 1 Service Requests (SRs), functional issues, and security updates (critical patch update program). Such situations demand organizations to approach upgrades or migration at the earliest.

Why migrate to Fusion Cloud?

Lower Costs: The TCO is lowered by almost 38% vis-a-vis on-premises deployments. It manages and reduces capital expenditure and transforms them to predictable operating expenditure by way of efficient datacenters’ maintenance, eliminating server hardware and taking advantage of cloud flexibility wherever possible.

The “pay-as- you go” usage model just adds to the benefits. Also, the provision to bring existing Oracle licenses to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and leveraging existing investments, including monitoring, operational runbooks, skills, and workflow, adds significantly to the value.

Better Performance: Fusion Cloud results in 30% increased performance and 2-10 times faster reporting. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure delivers higher performance compute, storage, networking, and managed database instances, giving users a high-performance experience. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the only platform where Oracle Database can be run with Oracle RAC or Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service. Other cloud systems have lesser robust configurations.

Easier to manage: With Oracle’s specific tooling and automation to streamline deployment, migration, upgrading, and maintaining implementation, it saves time and reduces risk. The implementation timeline is in weeks, rather than months. A typical deployment can be done within 12-14 weeks.

Easier to use: The cloud-based access provides seamless navigable dashboards for efficient troubleshooting. When compared to EBS, in fusion there is no need to run multiple queries for the creation of ad-hoc reports for real-time data. Enabled with Guided Business Processes, which are organized sets of tasks, there is help in getting work done more efficiently.

Reporting Capabilities of Oracle Fusion Cloud

Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence (OTBI): Provides real-time transactional analytics, reports, charts/graphs, flexible outputs embedded within Cloud Applications. This tool is recommended for business users for ad-hoc analysis and daily reporting.

Data Model in Oracle Fusion

Fusion Architecture

Oracle fusion applications are built on oracle fusion middleware technology. This is robust and offers numerous add-ons for fusion applications.

Apart from application servers, it has identity management, SOA, BI, ODI, BPM & WebLogic communication, which enables seamless connection with database through WebLogic server.

One of the primary highlights of Fusion is that it uses a service-oriented architecture (SOA). SOA uses orchestration technology to assemble various services to provide comprehensive functionality. This

allows a newer, much smoother approach in contrast to the forms and database-centric approach of the Oracle application architecture in EBS.

ennVee Approach in migration from EBS to Fusion Cloud

Like any conventional migration process, the phases are planning, preparation, pre-migration, down time, and post-migration.

These needs performing pre-migration reporting and readiness from diagnostics. A readiness report, both summary and in detail are done to check the overall readiness status. If the report is completed with one or more errors, then search for ‘failure’ would be initiated and the corrections instilled before attempting to upgrade. These readiness check can be re-run as many times as necessary before an upgrade.

Few Things to consider before Migration

Finally, the domain values are mapped to perform the data migration and are completed using ODI interfaces.
