Oracle EBS Impact Analysis
Oracle EBS administrators, power users and technical support are faced with a number of fundamental challenges to accurately maintain their implementation
Consistency across multiple instances
Every Oracle EBS account will have at least three active instances typically called ‘Test’, ‘UAT’ and ‘Live’. Most accounts will have far more and the challenge for every account is how to ensure that each instance is consistent and that the only differences are those known and planned.
Planning EBS upgrades
Major upgrades of Oracle EBS provide significant new and amended functionality. To create a plan, calculate timescales and allocate the appropriate resources it is essential to know what has changed and how it affects any custom code that has been developed.
It is essential to understand what access each end user accounts and the Oracle default user accounts have to each instance of Oracle EBS. In heavily regulated industries and for Sar9+Box compliance this is a business imperative.
Creating and maintaining BR100 level information is time consuming but crucial as changes are made to the definition of any instance.
OEIA covers all these requirements and more! At its heart is a comparison engine that enables two or more instances of EBS to be compared and all the differences reported. The added bonus is that this comparison is not limited to live instances but can also include historic snapshots of an instance and versions of Oracle EBS that have not yet been installed. For release12.1 and release 12.2 upgrades this approach provides a huge ROI for upgrade planning and as a fast start into the Conference Room Pilot (CRP).
There is wider applicability for OEIA as it not limited to entire instances but can equally operate at the operating unit and sets of books level, both within a single environment and across multiple environments. It is also a powerful tool when diagnosing differing behaviour between two instances of Oracle EBS.
OEIA supports over 130 Oracle EBS modules and is available for all releases from 11.0.3.
