Our upgrade methodology is focused on functional and technical upgrades with a proven and iterative framework with three major focus area:
- Functional and Business Users Focus Area: We cover the features and functionalities relevant to your business needs: There are many new features in R12.2.X and it is oftentimes confusing for business users to understand these. With the PROPERO solution and Jade Global’s experts, users can now view a concise list of all the features, functionalities and changes in R12.2.X segregated by module and track.
- Technical Focus Area: The main goal as part of this area is to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO). We use our tool PROPERO to perform top-down and bottom-up approach to perform in depth analysis of customizations and extensions. We further map these customizations with latest features of R12.2.X. In addition, we also validate alteration required for technology changes such as Online Patching. Database impact analysis and upgrade is also part of the technical Focus Area.
- Change Management Focus Area: Structured change management process will ultimately drive user adoption and acceptance which is critical for implementation success. We have our inventory of the change management documentation including – Training Plan, Interactive Training Videos and Standard Desktop Procedure Documentation. Depending upon the upgrade path our clients choose we tailor our change management approach with the appropriate level of rigor. Ultimately, we ensure that by the time we complete our upgrade are clients are self-sufficient and are meeting the objectives of the project.
