Oracle Hyperion Upgrades
Reduce the legwork of upgrading without missing a single step
If you are among the Oracle Hyperion EPM customers who have not yet made the migration to the cloud, you know the importance of keeping your on-premises deployment up to date.
Staying current on releases ensures that you will continue to have access to the latest features and bug fixes and maintain compatibility with third-party products, like your choice of operating system and web browser.
The business process supported by the EPM products are critical for most organizations, increasing the need for staying current and retaining eligibility for Oracle’s premier support tiers. A major on-premises upgrade can be a complex undertaking, with implications that vary depending on the release version and patch level of your current deployment. With so much riding on the success of your next Hyperion upgrade, it makes sense to join with an Oracle partner who has both the knowledge and the experience to help your upgrade succeed.

Upgrading your Hyperion deployment isn’t something that you can finish in an afternoon; it requires careful study, planning and strategizing from experts who know the most effective way to proceed. Datavail stands ready to partner with your internal resources to develop a solid approach and timeline for your upgrade.
As older software applications continue to “go gray” and lose access to top support levels, companies that choose to defer upgrades must evaluate the risk of lower-priority support and the unavailability of patches/bug fixes.
The support timeline for major Oracle Hyperion EPM versions is as follows:
188.8.131.52 and older
- Oracle is no longer releasing patches for these versions.
- May 2019: End of Oracle Premier Support
- May 2020: End of Oracle Extended Support
- March 2020: Predicted end of Oracle Premier Support
- March 2021: Predicted end of Oracle Extended Support
- Q1 2019: Release
- 2030: End of Oracle Premier Support
Whatever version of Hyperion you are upgrading from, you need to start planning well in advance. One company Datavail worked with, a large energy infrastructure firm, took 9 months between the request for proposal and the completed upgrade due to the complexity of their environment. Many factors affect the timeline of an upgrade; it is critical to understand these early in the process so that cutover can be scheduled around critical business processes.
Datavail’s Hyperion upgrade services are the perfect match for any company that cares about the long-term health of its Hyperion deployment. Fill out the form on this page, and we’ll be in touch shortly for a free consultation about your goals for your next Hyperion upgrade.
