Upgrade to EPM 11.1.2
GoLive’s infrastructure and functional consultants have carried out many upgrades to the latest Oracle Fusion releases from older versions and have developed a streamlined process for carrying out upgrade projects, often involving multiple applications and large amounts of data.
Your Enterprise Performance software and applications, being on the cutting-edge of technological advances need upgrades every few years to leverage the advances in technology and to make new functionality available to users. Since this task involves the preservation of the existing data and functionality within the current application, the tasks associated with an upgrade can be numerous.
The ability to of integrating your EPM and ERP applications has always been a challenge. When EPM/BPM suites first debuted companies have strived to improve the level of integration between them and their ERP packages. You can use off-the-shelf data-sharing products such as middleware, EAI tools and ERP/EPM connectors or develop your own proprietary connector components. Also you can turn to the application programming interfaces (APIs) shipped with the ERP systems themselves. But, as you might expect, each method is not suitable for all integration projects.
GoLive’s integration specialists, have extensive experience in the development of ETL interfaces from ERP/GL to Oracle EPM applications whether it is SAP, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards or Microsoft Dynamics. Our team works with you to define and implement an integration roadmap to Oracle EPM Application with the Oracle ETL toolset that best meets your needs.
