CHICAGO, USA: Research released this month courtesy; Original Software in conjunction with UK Oracle User Group (UKOUG) makes known that nearly three quarters (72 percent) of Oracle e-Business Suite users surveyed alluded to “minimizing the risk of not supporting core business systems” as their most important success factor when upgrading.
A sole 15 percent of respondents entitled “minimizing project cost” as their most important success factor.
Researchers from their quarter tested 156 Oracle e-Business Suite (EBS) users in 20 countries between August and December previous year, that is, as regards their strategies and views concerning recent system upgrades.
Colin Armitage, CEO of Original Software, alleged that, “Our research demonstrates that reducing the risk of being unable to perform core business processes is the key goal when upgrading ERP software. Rigorous testing can reduce this risk, but asking line-of-business (LoB) users to perform testing manually could cost an organization thousands of work days.”
Rhetoricising that – “We reduce this impact by up to 70 percent by putting simple tools into the hands of users that streamline the traditional testing process, so they can return faster to their core responsibilities. Regaining this mindshare can translate into competitive advantage for businesses coping with the demands of rapidly spreading technologies, such as mobility, big data, social networks and the cloud.”
