  42. 42. Fusion Applications !!! What does this means to you? ©2010 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc., All rights reserved. 42 “Mastering” Master Data Solutions
  43. 43. Fusion Applications – Adoption/Implementation • Get trained in Fusion Middleware Technologies – Or become a Dinosaur… Eventually… • Prepare to re-implement if your current installation is heavily customized – Take stock of all customizations – Document existing business processes – Identify and document process issues and deficiencies • Upgrade (probably technical) to EBS R12 if you are on R11i and your installation is either vanilla or lightly customized – Can upgrade easily from R12 to Fusion Applications, though you can technically upgrade from R11i to Fusion Applications • Older versions of EBS (prior to R11.5.10) will not be able to directly upgrade to Fusion Applications ©2010 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc., All rights reserved. 43 “Mastering” Master Data Solutions
  44. 44. Fusion Applications – Adoption/Implementation • Explore implementing Fusion MDM applications either for Customer or for Product or both initially – This will give you following benefits • You are implementing a must have application that you most likely have not implemented yet • Learn the inner workings of Fusion Applications in the process • By the time you are ready to migrate from Apps Unlimited Applications to Fusion Applications – You will have trained resources – The product would have stabilized – Oracle might have released one or two point versions – Possibly increased functionality like releasing of Manufacturing modules and/or MDM solution for other domains like Sites, Suppliers, Accounting, etc. ©2010 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc., All rights reserved. 44 “Mastering” Master Data Solutions
