Original Software, the leading Application Quality Management (AQM) vendor, today announced an innovative three-staged approach to help Oracle users reduce the pain of implementing ERP software upgrades, while reducing the associated risks. The impact of these ERP upgrades is often huge, while Original Software’s goal is to transform them into an “Easy Repeatable Process”.
“Each of these elements are essential to transform the upgrade landscape”, commented Colin Armitage, CEO at Original Software, “and it is their cohesive integration that is the key.”
The first element is an AQM system that is pre-loaded to reflect the Oracle E-Business Suite upgrade methodology. It provides the essential communication, collaboration and controls for each project. The second element is an impact analysis, so the extent of the upgrade can be rapidly understood, planned and the appropriate resources allocated. The final element empowers manual testers to reduce the impact of this painful activity, supported by an easy migration to test automation to further reduce the workload in the future.
“The Oracle E-Business Suite community faces multiple challenges as they move from Release 11i to 12.x and potentially beyond to Fusion,” says Armitage. “Original Software’s intuitive solution is designed for business analysts, IT and end users. It directly tackles Oracle E-Business Suite upgrade issues, by reducing the impact on the users, lowering the risk and shortening project timescales.”
UKOUG Conference is a Technology and Applications Forum for the Oracle Community organized by the UK based Oracle User Group, (UKOUG), and helps users of the full family of Oracle business applications and database software gain greater value from their Oracle investments. It takes place today, through to Wednesday 5th December at the ICC, Birmingham. The event brings together users of Oracle technologies such as JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, Siebel and Oracle E-Business Suite, to offer in-depth education and networking opportunities, which will bring an expected 2,000 plus attendees.
Original Software will be showcasing their application quality management solution and at the same time, delegates can receive a personalized upgrade project ROI report and consultation, all on stand 40. Users of not only Oracle E-Business Suite, but also, JD Edwards and PeopleSoft technology, will be able to discover an “Easy Repeatable Process” ensuring a faster, easier and safer upgrade.
