Without a doubt, an E-Business Suite R12.2 upgrade comes with critical decisions for any company. To ensure that you are making the right decisions, you need to be fully aware of all the challenges, key action items and preparation steps and evaluate them with a strategic vision.

Watch an interview with Srinivas Gutti, AGL Services Company Retail IT Director, to learn how he and his team helped Pivotal Home Solutions, a subsidiary of AGL Resources, manage their upgrade to the latest EBS version.  Pivotal Home Solutions had spent 10 years on 11.5.10 and now they are using such powerful features like Online Patching and eBTax since the upgrade to R12.

During the interview we covered:

  • Key decisions which resulted in success
  • How to deal with customizations and cutover time to eliminate challenges
  • Key success factors throughout the full lifecycle of the project
