R 12.1 Upgrade Overview


Architectural/Financial uptakes that benefit projects users Catch up all of 11i10 M RUP4 enhancements/patches New functionality leveraging Fusion technology Easier upgrade path if and when you decide to move to Fusion


Building the Business Case for Upgrading

Evaluate the new 12.1 features in the products you are currently running
Opportunities to eliminate customizations Greater flexibility to match the needs of your business Opportunities for additional automation and process improvement

Look for adjacent products that might add value

Many products are much stronger at the 12.1 level than they were in 11.5.10 Adding modules is low cost since you are leveraging the implementation work you have already done Some customers have justified the upgrade primarily by the need to get to the 12.1 level so they could implement additional products


Upgrade Considerations

Secure consulting skills early

12.1.x implementation experience will be in short supply for the next while The number of customers upgrading to 12.1 will be significantly higher than to 12.0

Some customers might want to consider a reimplementation rather than an upgrade Consider increasing UAT and Training timeframes
Significant number of enhancements will increase time required


Key Message to EBS 11i Customers

Upgrade to EBS 12.1 and Get More Return on Your Investment Release VALUE: 12.1 provides business value across the suite in addition to the Financials focused Release 12
Customers should evaluate the business value of the Release 12.1 Leverage complementary Apps including Fusion Applications

QUALITY Results: Customers are live today on 12.1

New and existing customers are already live and upgrading Customers are achieving predictable results => use OCS, Experienced SIs or Oracle On Demand.

Upgrade Best Practices

Identification of required patches
Prepare a complete list of pre and post patches and recommended code levels Keep the system current on AD/ATG/OAM code e.g. latest AD/ATG RUPs on 11i/R12.0 and once on R12.1 High priority patches from My Oracle Support Consolidated Upgrade Patches (CUP) and required one offs that need to be applied in pre-install mode. R12.1 CUP1 (7303029:12.1.0) is available now Review Known-issues sections from key documents to determine additional pre or post upgrade patches : Release notes, MP Install Instructions



Upgrade Best Practices

Patch merging and sequencing
Take advantage of patch merge, hot patching and apply patches in the correct sequence. For e.g. apply MLS as hot patches

Complete pre upgrade activities

Identify and execute tasks that could be completed in a separate downtime period, prior to the production upgrade Use applicable steps mentioned in the "Downtime reduction" and Upgrade By Request appendices E and G of the R12.1 upgrade guide Upgrade RDBMS version to latest certified for the current APPS level ( / / ) Convert to Oracle Applications Tablespace Model(OATM) Compacts database, optimizes storage settings and reduces I/O Other planned HW or OS upgrades



Upgrade Best Practices

Pre-upgrade activities continued...
Use TUMS (The Upgrade Manual Script) to avoid running tasks that are not relevant for your system Convert to multiple organization architecture Document 210193.1) Drop MRC schema ( 11.5.10 and above ) Gather stats with GATHER_AUTO option for all schemas Minimize historical data to be upgraded as per business requirements Upgrade By Request Purge old and/or transient data before upgrading Over 260 standard purge programs in R12 Use new Purge Portal in OAM to administrate



Upgrade Best Practices

Adpatch options and other reporting tools
Use applicable adpatch options to reduce downtime and track key upgrade aspects using in-built tools

Key recommended fixes (Pre Upgrade)

Affecting Upgrade Performance AD-Parallel improved scalability: 8917381 (Part of 9179588 AD CUP) Forms/reports generation regression with 11g: 8557019 Projects PJ_PF Oracle Projects Consolidated Upgrade Patch (CUP) for 12.1.1 : 9071598 (Part of 7303029 AU CUP) General Review documents 244040.1 and 950896.1 for latest EBS recommended performance fixes

Lessons Learnt
Properly size RDBMS for upgrade
init.ora Undo Shared pool DB Cache PGA Aggregate Target

Plan for additional storage for staging patches, pre-built code Use production like hardware for UAT Optimize CBO stats Set plsql_no_compile=yes Use higher batch size (10000-20000) Choose adequate numbers of workers

Lessons Learnt
Repeat the upgrade until all issues are fixed and downtime is consistent Ensure new customizations comply to new standard Test ! Test ! & More Test !
