Presentation Title: Oracle E-Business Suite 11i: Moving to Fusion or Upgrading to R12?
Speaker: Mr Richard Atkins
Company: Certus Solutions
Presentation abstract: 40-50% of Oracle eBusiness Suite customers are still on R11i. A product that has been around for over 10 years now. Why are customers not moving to R12, what is their reluctance? Do they have an alternative?

Customers were told in the past that they had to go to R12 before they could go to Fusion. This is a fallacy. 90% of Oracle's Fusion customers are utilising the product in the Cloud, and the vast majority of 11i customers will want to do the same. If you are going to the Cloud then there is no upgrade path, only re-implementation.

This presentation intends to show customers, still on R11i of eBusiness Suite that the not only do the benefits of moving to the cloud in terms of usability and functionality with Fusion far out way the benefits of upgrading to R12, but that implementing in the cloud is significantly cheaper.
