Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Upgrade Validation Process Accelerated with

Oracle EBS users leverage drill-down and data comparison functions ensure data integrity real-time


DENVER, Mar. 4, 2013 – Upgrading from Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) 11i to R12 can be a frustrating process for IT managers and business users alike. Often painfully slow, the upgrade process can quickly become delayed or derailed by cost overruns and error-prone data migrations – significant issues that have a ripple effect throughout an organization.
One of the most common complaints about the Oracle EBS R12 upgrade process is lack of visibility for validation purposes. Users struggle to directly access and compare crucial business information from the 11i and R12 environments This roadblock often forces finance teams to rely on their organization’s IT department for help, which in turn, slows down both the IT team and the validation and reconciliation processes.
Insight for Oracle E-Business Suite is the award-winning business insight and reporting tool for EBS. This robust platform provides enterprises with unparalleled support and simplicity during the R12 transition process. Among its many benefits, Insight Reporting for EBS offers drill-down, data comparison functions that allow users to easily compare data from two different environments. This capability reduces the need for IT support, speeds the validation process, and ultimately saves valuable time and resources.
When Accelrys upgraded to R12, they needed full visibility into their business information during, and after, the upgrade process. One of the company’s big challenges was consolidating the calendars from multiple sets of books into a single calendar for all ledgers in their R12 environment. Accelrys leveraged Insight for EBS to point to both 11i and R12 instances, enabling them to validate that data was correctly converted and was populating into the correct periods. During and since the upgrade, new reports have been created by the accounting team using new functionality from Out-of-the-box Subledger Accounting (SLA) reports provide users with in-depth visibility into this new layer within R12. By putting the power of business insight and reporting in the hands of the business users, Accelrys’ IT department was free to focus on core upgrade tasks, and Accelrys lowered their risk, reduced costs and streamlined the R12 upgrade project.
“Insight Reporting has been a huge time saver for us during our Oracle R12 upgrade process,” said Ben Bacaycay, MIS Leader for Accelrys. “We have been using Insight to help us reconcile between the old 11i and new R12 structures. The seeded drill-down capabilities in the out-of-the-box templates have enabled us to quickly and effectively expose any anomalies and then tweak the conversion code as needed, saving valuable time.”
Insight Reporting for EBS gives users peace-of-mind as they navigate the myriad complexities of R12 ranging from the introduction of subledger accounting to more focused issues like the addition of invoice lines in Accounts Payable.
