It's Time to Make Your
E-Business Suite 12.2 Upgrade
Did you know that 12.2 is the last major release of Oracle E-Business Suite? EBS 12.2 introduces online patching, which is designed to drastically reduce downtime—especially when compared to the downtime associated with previous releases for things like critical patch updates and other bug fixes.
Release 12.2 will be the last major upgrade you’ll need.
In the past, Oracle EBS released new versions in the form of major release upgrades, which combine a new technology stack with a new applications code level. But upgrading an Oracle EBS deployment was no easy task for most businesses. It involved a lot of planning and forethought—not to mention a ton of technical skill.
Now, with the Continuous Innovation delivery model for EBS 12.2, businesses can reap the benefits of ongoing applications and underlying
technology stack enhancements—without the time and expense of a major release upgrade.
On the heels of the 12.2 release, Oracle announced they’re extending Premier Support for Oracle EBS 12.2 through at least 2030. This means Oracle EBS customers already running on 12.2 can continue to access new applications functionality and separately uptake later versions of underlying technology for years to come.
What changes you can expect EBS 12.2
Ongoing Applications Updates: Ongoing updates to Oracle EBS 12.2 applications code, analogous to the 12.2x updates, have been made available annually. Updates will be cumulative and will combine bug fixes and new features into a consolidated, suite-wide patch set that can be easily applied with online patching.
Ongoing Technology Stack Updates: Ongoing updates will allow for the needed refresh of the Oracle Fusion Middleware platform technologies underlying Oracle EBS. These will allow customers to obtain new versions of the technology stack without upgrading Oracle EBS applications code.
