The Right Strategy Makes Things Easy June 26, 2012,
Volume 172, Issue 4
The value of having a powerful enterprise solution in house is obviously compromised unless there is a patching strategy in place to keep that solution up to date. Users of the Oracle E-Business Suite can find some useful suggestions toward the implementation of such a strategy in the post "Having a Proactive patch Plan in Place is the way to Go." Readers are referred from that post to another, "Patching & Maintenance Advisor: E-Business Suite 11i and R12," which covers such aspects as how to plan ahead for system downtime; patching tools in E-Business Suite; how to identify patches; and how to properly test your patching plan and move to production. Joining the E-Business Patching Community is also recommended.
