IBM has developed additional accelerating enhancements for this solution including design workshop master documents, a customer interview questionnaire to quickly capture key configuration data, and a comprehensive OBA excel based toolkit. The IBM toolkit captures and integrates design decisions across modules. The IBM OBA Certified Center of Excellence guides each project to the successful creation of the integrated OBA EBS definition matrix, and The Center of Excellence team has experience implementing this solution in both smaller, local businesses and large, multi-national organizations. IBM hosts the creation of the OBA EBS instance, allowing the project to begin without customer hardware in place. IBM can also provide temporary hosting of your CRP testing instance if needed.

The solution can also be used for re-implementation upgrades from Oracle release 11i to R12. Re-implementation, or transformational upgrades are often the best choice for companies that have grown through acquisition and need an organizational design change, need to re-design their Chart of Accounts, or require major standardized business process change. IBM has developed over 200 key data and configuration extraction scripts (VCOQ) that are applied against the existing 11i instance. The project team can quickly review existing data and design to decide what to bring forward into the R12 environment, saving days or weeks of effort.
