Gaining organizational agility and improving productivity are just a few advantages of moving to the cloud. Users can benefit from these benefits by moving from Oracle E-Business Suite to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) (OCI). Similar to on-premises deployments, customers who transition to Oracle Cloud will have access to all of Oracle’s cloud-based services and certain additional benefits.
The following are a few suggestions and things to bear in mind when performing the Oracle EBS to Cloud Migration:
Versions and Certification Status of Applications: In addition to those for Oracle EBS, you should also look at the versions and certification requirements of the database, browser, O/S, Java, and other applications to make sure they will all function properly in the cloud. Schedule time for pre-migration upgrades if they are necessary.
Examining your interface jobs should be your first step when getting ready for cloud migration. This is crucial since it will affect a number of your decisions in the future and determine how difficult your cloud migration will be. Analyse the data on transaction volume for each interface task. Verify that the job runs and completes as anticipated and that the connectivity is still operational.
Review your data migration strategy to ensure the cutover period is as small as possible. Depending on the cloud platform you choose, you can experience lengthy downtime. As we all know, downtime is not enjoyable. To be aware of the time limits, determine how long the cutover can be down. You must use a completely different approach with a zero-downtime plan than, for example, one that allows for 48 hours of downtime.
Analyse your storage requirements and the potential cost reductions provided by the cloud. If your current solution employs compression and deduplication, your data will increase when it is transferred to the cloud. Take a look at the price and usage of your on-premises production and non-production database storage. Recognize how your chosen cloud options, storage limitations, and other factors may affect your Oracle EBS setup.
Testing Strategy: You can minimize post-migration surprises by evaluating your testing strategy. It is suggested conducting your testing as though it were user acceptability testing throughout the proof of concept (POC) phase (UAT) (UAT). Run the KPI testing scenarios in a manner akin to production, using a regression and load testing technique. You want to look at the jobs starting and terminating, the runtimes, and the volume specifics.
Users can take advantage of the cloud’s scalability and elasticity by migrating to it. For users to rapidly and simply begin utilizing the benefits of the cloud, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers a wide choice of cloud computing services, as well as a comprehensive set of managed services and substantial self-service capabilities. Although moving Oracle EBS to the cloud can be more difficult than moving other databases and applications, taking your time and paying close attention to the small things can ultimately pay dividends. You may turn the unknown into the known and improve your chances of success by going over these seven components in advance of beginning your Oracle EBS cloud migration.
