Explore the Ways to Modernize Your Oracle EBS: Moving to Cloud Isn’t the Only Option

Oracle E-Business Suite brings remarkable growth and scalability for organizations that envision excellence and adaptability. Oracle EBS is known for its viability, showing a path forward in the process of digital transformation evolution. This evolutionary platform drives enterprises with strategic imperatives via EBS upgradation, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure migration, or Oracle Platform-as-a-Service.

Based on the business needs and objectives, each of these technologies are tailored accordingly, aligning enterprises towards technological innovation. My research + expertise into successful migration, implementation, and optimization of Oracle EBS delivered successful business transformation while navigating technical, business, and process challenges. Moreover, what I have seen is that many enterprises assume moving their Oracle EBS to cloud solves their dependencies or needs but it does not! Let me articulate to you how you can modernize your Oracle EBS to sustain in the current and future game of strategic innovation.

Ways to Modernize Oracle EBS

Enterprises that still depend on on-premises Oracle EBS, it is easy for them to run their Oracle EBS infrastructure on their OCI without any configuration, integration, or changes in business processes. But migrating to cloud makes the implementation flexible, dependable, highly performant, and reduces cost than on-premises or other cloud hosting approaches. As an enterprise, if you subscribe to Oracle Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), you have accessibility to compute, storage, and network services associated with. However, there are many ways of deploying Oracle E-Business Suite on OCI apart from moving to the cloud. These include:

Upgrade to Oracle EBS 12.2 for Strategic Continuity

Upgrading Oracle EBS to 12.2 (the latest version) is a compelling choice as it eliminates unnecessary costs involved in ERP previous versions. This upgradation not only improves functionality and user experiences but also increases the system’s lifespan and efficiency through Oracle’s extended Premier Support. Though the upgradation is streamlined or added to the executional pipeline, it reduces TCO and enhances operational continuity with minimal disruptions. By choosing an upgrade option, your enterprise’s entire Oracle ERP is secured, robust, and supportive for future business changes.

Leap into the Strategic Excellence: OCI Move

Anything that’s migrated to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a compelling choice and a big step towards digital modernization for enterprises. As they look for re-architecting their IT infrastructure, reduce maintenance costs, or develop cloud-native capabilities, OCI migration converges them towards unparalleled growth. Moreover, OCI delivers greater operational excellence, brings cost efficiency, and agility to scale and innovate rapidly, creating digital dominance in near fortune.

Integrating Oracle SaaS as a Holistic Solution

Selecting Oracle SaaS is a fully managed service model, which might require expertise. For enterprises that require dynamic ERP platform, service-oriented framework, and offloading infra management, they may choose Oracle SaaS as a fully managed solution. However, Oracle SaaS adoption fosters seamless business continuity and gives you access to the newly introduced functionalities without any downtimes.

Getting Over Legacy ERP

Sticking to old ways doesn’t work every time and it might take you into additional complexities, burdening the business operations and people a lot. The end goal is to modernize Oracle EBS, sticking to one strategy. When you continue with legacy ERP, the possibilities of disruptions, vulnerabilities, and data loss are high and severe.

I have showcased the expertise at INFOLOB that has delivered 250+ successful projects and still counting. As we navigate enterprises through Oracle EBS modernization, we look for their infrastructure inside before beginning the actual plan and that’s where we create a win-win scenario.

Key Considerations

The role of ERP within organizations is more of a strategic imperative than other functional requirements. From realizing holistic ERP goals to streamlining the bottom line of operations, Oracle EBS is a single platform that takes care of every aspect.

That’s why INFOLOB plays a crucial role for enterprises in implementing Oracle EBS on OCI where we:

  • Assess organizational readiness, coping up with existing infrastructure and future market changes. Then, the Oracle EBS is deployed accordingly.
  • Evaluate total cost of ownership and how it’s being affected. Also, we use our best practices to reduce TCO thereby optimizing your OPEX.
  • Understand the business process challenges while migrating your EBS to OCI.
  • Ensure compliance and high security standards.

All these together allow enterprises to collectively utilize the full potential of Oracle EBS thereby establishing a long-term digital modernization roadmap that improves scalability, flexibility, and accelerates credibility to lead in the future tech evolution as well.

Deployment Options for Oracle EBS on OCI

To deploy E-Business Suite on OCI, following are the ways:

Deploy Application Database Tiers for VMs Computation

In this deployment, the database tiers and application are deployed in distinct sets of Compute VMs. There’s also an option available to deploy multiple application tiers on distinct compute VMs that use Load Balancer as-a-service (LBaaS).

Deploy Application Tier to Compute VMs and Database Tiers to DBaaS

Similar to previous deployment, the application tier is deployed on a compute VM, or multiple application tiers can be deployed on distinct compute VMs that use LBaaS. And the database might be deployed to a Database Cloud Service Single Instance VM to a DB System Single Instance on Bare Metal, or an Exadata Database.

If an Exadata Database is chosen, then RAC is deployed by default. However, Oracle offers automated provisioning capabilities to deploy and run Oracle EBS as a demo.

Deploy Application Tier to Compute VMs and Database Tier to Oracle RAC

Be it a two node Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) virtual machine DB system or an Oracle Exadata DB, you can deploy them anyways possible. Whatever the requests received from the application tier are load balanced across the database instances. If you consider deploying Oracle EBS in multiple availability domains to enable high availability, the need for Oralce Data Guard in synchronous mode must be chosen that replicates database changes across the database wherever it’s available.

In addition, Oracle also offers a specific set of tooling and automation to streamline Oracle EBS deployment, migration, upgradation, and maintenance.

Path for Strategic Modernization

Oracle EBS is not merely a strategic modernization backed up by technological upgrades, but a bottom-line shift driven by ERP objectives, addressing most of the business challenges. This is the era where business transformation relies in adopting new and innovative ERP models such as Oracle EBS on OCI. With careful planning and overlooking at benefits, impacts, and strategic implications, our Elite Oracle Leaders mentor your enterprise during EBS migration while navigating through the involved complexities. With our involvement, we ensure sustained growth, agility, and extreme competence in the industry.
