Upgrading your Oracle E-Business Suite system can be a daunting experience depending on the level of customisation. When performing an upgrade everything including the base configuration, data and customisations are all upgraded. An upgrade increases in effort and cost, in relation to the number of customisations. Significant effort is required to amend customisations and test them, which can ultimately make your upgrade far more costly than it needs to be.
dsp CEMLI does an effective analysis of your Oracle application system. It provides a catalogue of the overall number of customisations you have, and also groups customisations into business processes, object type, and Customisation ID.
Often, upgrading your system can have an on-going effect on increased complexity, additional maintenance cost and less flexibility. Using the catalogue you can identify areas for improvement and customisation reduction which can reduce complexity, cost of future maintenance and upgrades and create a better use of new product functionality and business value.
