Practical training: How to get off the hamster wheel of Oracle Cloud quarterly updates by Peter Earnshaw and Peter Crew

One of the key challenges Oracle Cloud customers have is keeping pace with the quarterly upgrade schedule for Oracle Cloud applications. 

A typical upgrade process involves several routine tasks, such as: 

Reviewing upcoming changes and assessing the potential impact on users and existing processes 

Performing UAT cycles in a sandbox environment, in preparation for the production rollout 

Preparing and disseminating documentation and other self-help materials in case of significant UI or process changes 

Assessing the impact on user productivity of issues introduced by the upgrade, to adequately allocate IT and other resources towards their resolution 

Finally, being able to engage a fast response team to deal with such issue, in orders to minimize their impact on business 

The team tasked with managing this process can be easily overwhelmed, given that these upgrade cycles happen so frequently. 

In this webinar Knoa and our guest presenter, Peter Crew the CTO of Magia Solutions, will discuss some practical tips and tools that can help you effectively prepare for and deal with these upgrades, making your life easier, helping you deliver a better quality of service to your business stakeholders: the actual end users – your employees.


With Oracle Cloud taking center stage, many think that the Oracle E-Business Suite upgrades are no longer in fashion. But for many companies, Oracle EBS upgrades are the way to go. Companies that cannot move to the Oracle Cloud still need to have the latest security, better performance, a new look and feel, new features, and compliance with Oracle Support policies.

EBS R12.2.10+ offers all the benefits with enhanced security to eliminate many vulnerabilities, protecting against increasing cyber-attacks. EBS R12.2.X+ also gives us the ability to do online patching and eliminates the central pain point of production downtimes.

Learning Objectives:
– Why an Oracle upgrade would be beneficial
– Learn about the upgrade process and how to use upgrade best practices
– Create a plan to success for your upgrade


Hexaware leverages its proprietary Triadic framework to carry out transformation assessments for its customers. It evaluates the client environment from three dimensions: business model, landscape complexity, and appetite to move to the cloud. The various automation tools & accelerators aligned with the framework will bring in a significant reduction in effort and cost during implementation as well as post-implementation. One of the elements in the Triadic framework is data migration; customers face multiple challenges during migration, consolidation, and reconciliation of data from multiple source systems like PeopleSoft, Oracle EBS, and other legacy applications to Oracle HCM, ERP, and CX Cloud applications.

Learning Objectives:
· Triadic framework for Oracle Cloud application
· Automated migration platform with predefined templates
· Key features of the migration tool
· Demo of the migration tools

· Vishal Rao
· Sundu Rathinam
