Thousands of organizations of all sizes and industries depend on Oracle E-Business Suite to keep their business operations running. With powerful functionality ranging from finance and HR to order management and logistics, it’s no surprise that Oracle EBS is such a successful enterprise software suite.
EBS 12.2 comes packed with even more features, bug fixes, and performance improvements that make it a worthy investment.
Here’s a quick overview of the features and benefits of EBS 12.2:
- A streamlined installation process.
- An improved user interface, with a new modern look and feel, new icon-based page navigation, and new widgets for user productivity.
- Online patching to dramatically reduce downtime when applying new updates.
- WebLogic Server to replace the Oracle Containers for Java (OC4J) application server.
- Third-party certifications for Microsoft Office 32-bit and 64-bit.
As mentioned above, EBS 12.2 also represents a shift to Oracle’s new “continuous innovation” release model for EBS, which we’ll discuss in more detail later in this paper. This new model separates EBS technology stack updates from EBS applications code updates. In other words, users can receive new versions of the EBS tech stack without having to upgrade the EBS applications code at the same time—a model that will be significantly more convenient for many customers.
In particular, the latest versions of EBS 12.2 (12.2.8 and 12.2.9) offer some appealing new innovations, such as:
Enabling customer enhancement requests and voting via Oracle Support Communities.
Changes to help users comply with data privacy regulations and accounting standards. The frequent release cycle of Oracle EBS 12.2 allows this software to keep pace with new accounting and FDA requirements, as well as other regulations. This includes support for IFR216 and ASC842.
User interface modernizations and improved mobility for our rapidly changing world.
Enterprise Command Centers, a new dashboard feature for identifying and taking action on your top priorities. EBS 12.2.9 has expanded on the dashboard improvements of the last version, with 19 command centers in total. Additionally, 62 role-based dashboards are also available.
Increased automation capabilities for running EBS on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Improvements to the GUI. Additional modernization has taken place, primarily through the addition of more HTML interfaces.
Automated invoice creation. The order management functionality in EBS is extended with automated invoices for recurring payments with usage-based billing.
