Clouds on the Horizon: What’s the Best Oracle Fusion Strategy for Those Still in 11i or R12

1,856 views

Published on

The general availability of Oracle Fusion, along with the new “Fusion Cloud,” increases the complexity of the challenges that accompany subsequent upgrade decisions. Guest speaker Gustavo Gonzalez from IT Convergence previews Oracle Fusion’s different components and explains the main differences between Fusion Cloud and Fusion On-Premise. Oracle 11i and Release 12 users will see a decision making tree for choosing between 12.1 or Fusion. This presentation highlights these points as well as key “like-to-like” licensing considerations from an Oracle ACE.
