Throughout the year, Oracle has been continuously releasing updates for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). The latest innovation was released on November 18th and provides ongoing applications and technology updates without requiring a major upgrade. This exists alongside Oracle Premier Support for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 which will be available until at least 2033.

Here are the key aspects about the most recent upgrade you need to know, and don’t forget to check out our EBS Services if need advice or support with any aspect of the below:

EBS Enterprise Command Centre Updates (ECC)

The Enterprise Command Centre (ECC) are really helpful dashboards that enable EBS end users to recognise priority transactions and take action without the need for custom operational reporting, empowering the user and reducing the burden on IT. This November, updates have been made to enhance the framework the ECCs sit in and expand the functional scope. This includes a new command centre for General Ledger, bringing the total number of command centres to 34. There are also 6 new dashboards created in existing command centres and 7 track and trace dashboards, with 4 of these focusing on manufacturing.

EBS on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Customers are increasingly looking to OCI as an efficient and cost-effective model to underpin their EBS application. To help customers move their on-premises EBS environments to OCI, Oracle continues to invest in EBS Cloud Manager and has released additional capabilities throughout the year, which will increase its reliability and the smoothness of the transition. If you need assistance with an Oracle EBS migration to OCI, look at our services and speak to our experts.
