Oracle is now encouraging its customers to go all-in on the cloud. So many of the thousands of organizations currently operating Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) will soon be facing the end of premiere support for this on-premise ERP platform as the company pushes offerings like Oracle ERP Cloud. Specifically, Oracle premier support for EBS release 12.1 will be available through at least December 2021. This means that companies using Oracle EBS can continue to sustain their investments with minimal disruption for a few more months without losing access to new updates, security alerts, data fixes, certifications, and critical patch updates.
Oracle recently announced that Oracle premier support for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) release 12.1 will be terminated after December 2021, meaning many organizations will be facing the end of premiere support for the on-premise ERP platform.
As Oracle moves to sustain support for these customers, EBS customers will not receive new fixes, updates, or patches. This means that for many, upgrading to EBS 12.2 is a must. EBS 12.2 will provide regular updates to improve functionality and features. Those still using running Oracle EBS 12.1 will need to implement an upgrade plan if they have not already.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure allows customers the ability to move to the cloud at a lower cost for virtual machines and storage. Customers can also roll database licensing costs into their monthly payments allowing for greater flexibility.
