Oracle 12.1.3 EBS / OBI Foundation Suite Implementation

450 people affected
40 people managed
18 month project

Project Description

Oracle 12.1.3 EBS Implementation to replace 20+ year old legacy system.  We also replaced their archaic product labeling system, upgraded their parcel shipping system, and introduced automated cross-boarder shipping.  OBI was also introduced with OBIA modules Supply Chain and Financials.

Lessons Learned

Hold a longer Requirements Gathering Phase at the beginning of the project, along with a Business Process Review.  Get a better understanding of the "state" of the legacy data before planning conversions.  After the BPR, we would have realized that this silo'd, customized system would need a more mature consulting firm with a deep bench to perform at the speed needed.
