    • Fusion Applications !!! What does this means to you? 2012 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc., All rights reserved. 45Bringing People, Processes and Technology Together
    • Adoption and 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 2012 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc., All rights reserved. 46Bringing People, Processes and Technology Together
    • Adoption and Implementation … • Explore implementing Fusion Accounting Hub • This will give you following benefits • Sophisticated financial reporting base • With sophisticated Allocation Engine • With built-in Reporting capabilities through use of Cubes • Minimal disruption 2012 Rhapsody Technologies, Inc., All rights reserved. 47Bringing People, Processes and Technology Together
