Migration from Oracle Apps to Oracle Fusion – Why and How?

Rolling out updates for existing software isn’t a new thing. Irrespective of whether you are using a simple application such as Microsoft word or one as complicated as a CRM tool, updates are everywhere. Most of the time, companies simply offer an option to upgrade the existing software by clicking on the update now button. This is not only easy but also faster.

Recently, Oracle also rolled out a new version of its Oracle Apps software. Unlike others, there’s no update option. Meaning that to attune your system with the current version, you must lift and shift all of the data from Oracle Apps to Oracle Fusion. However, the process won’t be troublesome for you, and had multiple benefits.

In case you aren’t sure how to proceed with the migration process, this article would be of help.

What is Oracle EBS?

Released in 1987, Oracle EBS (E-business Suite) is a family of CRM and ERP solutions designed specifically for businesses that deal largely with data. The newer version namely, Oracle Fusion was released in September 2010. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Fusion is the better version of Oracle EBS.

However, due to the fact that organizations have been using EBS for more than two decades, they are more familiar with the infrastructure and find it best to stick to the same. In fact, this is one of the reasons why they have been holding back from migrating their EBS to Fusion. But as we say, everything has an end, the Oracle EBS will no longer receive support from the company and there’s nothing that an organization can do but migrate.

Why Should You Migrate to Oracle Fusion?

True that one of the strongest reasons for the migration of the Oracle apps to the fusion platform is Oracle rescinding support from the same. Yet that’s not it. There are many more reasons that opine the need for migration.

A few of the prominent ones include:

  • Service-Oriented Architecture

    One of the major changes that Oracle has made in the Fusion platform is its service-oriented architecture (SOA). This accounts for a simpler, newer, and smoother approach. Oracle EBS, on the other hand, adopts a database-centric Oracle application architecture approach which makes it complicated when you need to share or transfer data.

  • An array of Products & Efficient Data Model

    Oracle has acquired a series of products in the last few years. And so the all-new Oracle Fusion platform has and offers all of these products enhancing the end to end offering of the platform. The products include JD Edwards, Siebel, PeopleSoft in addition to the Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS). That is to say, the data model offered by Oracle Fusion is the holistic combination of Oracle EBS, PeopleSoft, Siebel, and hence the name Fusion. Needless to mention that this combination is far more effective and performance-driven as compared to Oracle Apps.

  • Smoother Workflow & Reporting

    As known, the Oracle EBS platform makes use of the PL/SQL procedural language. However, the updated version: Fusion utilizes the Business Process Execution Language. The difference here lies in the fact that the latter renders a swifter and effective workflow. One thing to note is that both the languages support reporting but the ones offered by BEPL are driven by Business intelligence, which further enhances the level of reporting.

  • Tons of Options in Financial Reporting

    It is seen that Oracle EBS limits the extent of reporting using the Financial Statement Generator. Fusion, on the other hand, renders a vast scale of Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence and Hyperion Financials Reporting Studio. Each of these levels up the efficiency and productivity of the solution.

  • Futuristic Business Intelligence

    As mentioned above, the Oracle fusion platform supports Business Intelligence analytics and reporting. The ones using the Oracle EBS Solution may not be aware but the Oracle Discoverer will no longer receive support or be compatible with other solutions.

Migration from Oracle Apps to Oracle Fusion

Having said the above, it is pretty much clear that Fusion is the better alternative. When it comes to migration, fusion provides seamless options, all of which are flexible, and properly defined. It offers tons of migration tools which further simplifies the migration process. Needless to mention that they also provide technical and functionality and migration approaches.

To begin with, every migration follows a set of 3 stages.

One thing to note here is that not all can be migrated to the Oracle Fusion platform. There are a few things that fail to be moved to the fusion platform. These include:

What can be migrated?

  • Set-up data can be mapped or migrated
  • All of the transactional data can be migrated
  • The controlled schema customizations can migrate- For instance, the Descriptive Flex Fields


Even though it might seem pretty simple, in reality, the case is different. It is important that everything is done with sheer dedication and precision. It is best to seek help from someone experienced in doing the same.

The Ways BREXIT will impact SAP

For businesses operating in the UK and EU, the implications of BREXIT have been a topic of debate for a long. Even though the change was to be manifested in the UK after 1st Jan 2021, business owners have been preparing for the same for months. Primarily because, BREXIT would change the face of everyday business operations, and only the organizations that would stand upright in the readiness scale, can sustain the pressure while mitigating the risks (if any)

In case you are new to this sector or, aren’t aware of what BREXIT is and how will this affect your business operations, this article will help you understand the same. Starting with what exactly do we mean by BREXIT to the impact laid ln SAP, Taxes and Custom procedures, we will cover all. Without further ado, let’s begin.

What is BREXIT?

Brexit stands for “British exit”. And this refers to the decision made by the UK government on the 23rd of June 2016 to leave the EU. Since then a lot has been said and done in the name of preparations for the exit. It was in 2019 that the final date of exit got public and is now due 31st December 2020.

As the day passes, we take time out to figure out the impending effect of BREXIT on business organizations.

Impact of BREXIT on an organization

This section talks about the area-wide impact of BREXIT.

  • Organizational SAP model:

    Considering the fact that the UK will leave the European Union, organizations must assess and analyze their SAP database to adapt to the data. Presently, SAP systems have a country code GB referring to the countries within the European Union. Once the exit operation is complete, the above will change and so do the data stored in the database of SAP.

  • Tax determination:

    As UK plans to exit the EU, SAP systems are on the verge of an overhaul. This is attributed to the fact that the ‘GB’ country code would now render ineffective for EU countries. Since tax codes are identified by the system automatically, BREXIT would call for a system-wide change, disrupting the operation on a global scale.

    An important thing to note here is that Tax in SAP is one of the vital areas and would need further assessment concerning the changes. Keeping this as the core, as now dig deeper into possible SAP solutions and the impact of BREXIT on them:

Tax master data/ configuration

  • It is expected that Hard Brexit would cast an impact on the key master data configuration.
  • As stated, the tax codes for EU businesses given in the tax procedure of TAXGB would change and require further assessment. That is to say, a few codes need to be removed whereas new ones to be added.
  • Significant changes in the definition of country, followed by the deactivation of the EU-flag for the UK to be done in the required table.
  • Modifications and updates to be done in the registration numbers of VAT for the EU Member States. These are primarily stored in the “STCEG” field in the vendors’ and customers master data. Also, the GB registration will now be a different field.

Withholding tax

  • In accordance with the Parent Subsidiary Directive, the Interest and Royalties Directive will cease to exist. Meaning that they wouldn’t be applicable and few of the transactions would now be subject to withholding tax.
  • Organizations and enterprises would now need to verify their transactions with UK companies for situations where they are relevant for withholding tax.
  • You would need to configure withholding tax as and when required.

Indirect tax / VAT

  • BREXIT would have a serious impact on the Indirect tax reporting and organizations would require to create a new tax code, followed by the setup of tax procedures.
  • A few transactions might experience VAT changes. For instance, for items that have changed in the base amount, say there’s a discount applied. In such a case, they are liable for intra-stat reporting.
  • Legal reporting:

    As soon as the legal specifications after the BREXIT come up and are clear, organizations might feel the need to change the conditions as required on government reports such as EC listings. This is probably why all the tax-related outputs would require assessment and analysis in an attempt to ensure their compliance.

  • Trade flows:

    As the UK plans to leave the EU, it will also cut ties with the European single market. Now this will have serious repercussions on the current trade flows. It is expected that the above would lead to extended costs in terms of customs fees. In addition to the above, there would occur a significant ride in customs declarations leading to higher lead times. Altogether, this would affect the SAP system and must be taken care of.

  • Forms and documents:

    Lastly, the details or the data entered in the documents, and the forms need to be updated. This might include the POs language, the terms and conditions, invoices, and other documentation, as a whole.

How Stridely Solutions Help?

Having said the above, it’s time that you made the move, inflicting changes to your SAP system and improving your standings on the BREXIT readiness scale.

  • Consultation:

    Once we are through, the next step is to have our SAP experts dig deeper into the current set-up of your SAP system. Depending upon the need, they would then suggest changes.

  • Drafting a roadmap:

    Based on our extensive research and years of experience, we now move ahead to sketch a roadmap in an attempt to modify the SAP system.

Dynatrace for SAP Hybris – The Arrival of the Commerce Cloud Monitoring Age

Digital commerce solutions have captured the interest of entrepreneurs on a large scale. More and more organizations are actively adopting the same to reach out to the global market and enhance their business growth. In case you too have been thinking of making the move but failed to find an ideal solution, this article might be of help. Introducing SAP Hybris Commerce as a digital commerce solution, we will outline Dynatrace as the industry-best tool for managing and monitoring the same.

With that being said, let’s see what SAP Hybris Commerce Solution is.

What is SAP Hybris Commerce?

SAP Hybris Commerce or SAP Commerce Cloud, as we call it today is an omnichannel platform designed for the B2C, B2B, and B2B2C businesses. The platform helps organizations/businesses directly engage with their customers, allowing them to transact across digital as well as physical touchpoints.

The SAP Commerce Cloud comprises of SAP Marketing Cloud, SAP Service Cloud, SAP Sales Cloud, and the SAP Customer Data Cloud solutions on a whole. The platform is considered important and the core for sales and marketing solutions followed by customer relationship management. Owing to the technological transformations, enforcing on-premise architecture to be shifted to the cloud, the platform was renamed as SAP Commerce Cloud.

The platform is versatile and offers tremendous opportunities in terms of improving and enhancing the end to end efficiency. From product bundling to customer engagement, payment processing, and social media integration, the platform encompasses all.

Offering such capabilities, there arises the need to effectively monitor and manage the cloud platform. This is where Dynatrace comes into play.

What is Dynatrace?

Having said the above, the first question that pops up is what is a Dynatrace.

By definition, Dynatrace is an application performance management tool that aims at collaborating or fusing together the cloud infrastructure, the performance of the application, and the digital workforce, uniting all of the above into an integrated solution. What’s important to note here is that the solution is backed by artificial intelligence which adds to the capabilities of the tool.

The tool helps drive the end to end application performance results. This is done by aiding organizations with a platform that can develop, operate, and collaborate with business teams without any hassle. There are several agents that work across-the-board at different nodes of the SAP Commerce Cloud platform. These are bestowed with the responsibility of tracking, managing, and monitoring the operations, providing in-depth insights on the database, the OS, and the services.

With Dynatrace, manage and monitor all of the SAP product portfolio installed across your organization.

Wondering how can the Dynatrace platform help to do the above?

Precisely, the AI-driven software intelligence platform of Dynatrace is equipped with the potential to track technologies and delivery models across enterprise applications. It provides a holistic view, rendering in-depth insights and allowing organizations to make the most out of the solutions.

Here are a few ways in which Dynatrace helps manage the cloud platform.

  • To manage, track analyze, and scale customer experience both on the SAP Cloud and the SAP C/4HANA Platform

    Fortunately, the Dynatrace APM tool is compatible with both the SAP Commerce Cloud (C/4HANA) and for SAP Cloud Platform (SCP). As a matter of fact, this is the only tool that is available for both platforms in the SAP App Center. With the SAP Cloud Platform, you can easily observe, monitor, and manage performance on a global scale.

  • To obtain AI-centric answers related to the SAP infrastructure across Hybrid as well as cloud-native environments

    Monitoring through the Dynatrace infrastructure happens for more than a dozen of SAP customers. From networks to the servers and the cloud platforms, it works for all.

  • To enhance and optimize end-to-end user experience across all of the SAP applications within the organization in an attempt to understand how digital experiences affect the business.

    Dynatrace keeps tabs on the digital experience delivering performance management data to SAP Fiori UI users across multiple enterprises.

  • To optimize the performance of SAP ABAP from both the perspective of the ABAP application-platform and the infrastructure.

    Leveraging the extension for SAP ABAP monitors, Dynatrace provides information about the overall user experience on S/4 HANA and the ECC platform.

Dynatrace should not be used for the following:

True a lot can be done used the Dynatrace application performance management tool. However, that’s not it. There are a few things that Dynatrace isn’t helpful for and you must have an alternative for the same.

The most important ones include:

  • To analyze logs of data – It is best to use Kibana for assessing and analyzing the data logs. In addition to the above, you can have alerts set up as it is part of the SAP Commerce Cloud Locally.
  • To study end-user analytics – When it comes to analyzing user experience and laying out predictions on the same, say what is the conversion rate for a website, you might have access to Dynatrace Digital Experience Monitoring solution. However, you can also refer to Google Analytics to do the job.
  • To have an understanding of Service Level Agreement (SLA) metrics – In case you are planning to get SLA metrics, it is best to opt for the self-service availability reporting found in the Cloud Portal.
  • For synthetic testing – While the Dynatrace Digital Experience Monitoring solution is effective in rendering information, you can opt for others such as Pingdom, Uptime Robot, etc.


It is pretty evident that the Dynatrace application performance management tool is versatile and can be used for a variety of things, apart from performance and dashboard management. However, you must have the skillset to implement and use the tool to the best of its capabilities.

In case you lack in that regard, experts at Stridely Solutions are happy to help. Having both the knowledge and the experience of working on the APM tool, we help you integrate the same within your SAP Cloud Platform and utilize it for managing and monitoring the application performance swiftly.


How Artificial Intelligence Is Improving the Business Process Automation Thoroughly?

Business processes or day-to-day business operations are crucial for the survival of a business entity. Organizations employ thousands of workers (depending upon the requirements) to meet the demands and keep their business flowing steadily. This consumes a lot of time and tons of effort. From filing requests to creating contracts, logging data, or processing them, employees spend nearly half of their day doing mundane, unproductive tasks.

What if someone told you that you can automate all of these, relieving your employees and allowing them to focus on better tasks? As fictional as it may sound, process automation is now a reality and actively used by top organizations, streamlining their workflow and improving end-to-end productivity.

What’s more?

Implementation of AI in the BPA space has further accelerated the pace, taking automation to the next level. In case you are not sure what this is and how does AI affects the landscape of business process automation and the business as a whole, this article is all you need. Detailing on the core concepts of RPA and the means with which artificial intelligence has influenced the technology, we help you understand all that’s important.

Without further ado, let’s begin the rollercoaster ride of AI-led business process automation.

What is RPA and why AI?

RPA stands for Robotic Process Automation which simply means automating the end-to-end business processes. Within an organization, there are multiple things that complete a task. Consider the task of software development. Even though the main purpose is to design and build the software, it follows documentation. Developers spend a considerable amount of time documenting the process. Similar is the case with law firms that need to process tons of paperwork, even after a case is closed.

With RPA coming into play, all of these not so important tasks can be automated whereby the employees can do something better and productive, given the same work hours.

Read more about: Robotic Process Automation

Now as much as this seems efficient, in order for RPA to be fully effective and to be able to emulate human behavior, it has to have a certain degree of intelligence and hence, AI.

How to implement AI in business operations?

AI or as we say, artificial intelligence is one way of augmenting intelligence into machines. The technology has been in the industry for a long and it is now that experts are trying to fuse one with the other to enhance the overall usability.

AI in business process automation is more like making machines smarter to carry out business tasks. From Amazon’s Alexa to Apple’s Siri, we are all well aware of what smart machine is all about. But that’s not it. In fact, it is the top of the iceberg and there’s a lot more to the technology than we see.

The common scenarios that implicate AI in process automation include:

  • Reading and processing documents:

    We spend a lot of time reading documents. It could be from a text or an email or any business document. AI aims at equipping tools with the ability to read like humans, process data, and come up with relevant ones without requiring human intervention.

  • Analyzing Data:

    To read and process data is one thing, to analyze it and be able to drive conclusions is something different and huge. With AI into process automation, you can expect machines to both read, process, and analyze data and also lay predictions. This helps organizations gain a holistic view of their enterprise data and make smarter decisions.

  • Act like humans:

    Besides dealing or handling data, AI models can effectively be trained to act in a certain manner. Meaning that their application isn’t limited to data but extends beyond that. To be precise, a model can do all it has been trained for.

How AI affects RPA Bots?

Bots performing business operations have been an innovation of its kind. They were programmed to do a certain activity. The drawback here was the bots couldn’t learn from human behavior. In other words, the capabilities were largely restricted.

Artificial Intelligence tends to strengthen the ability of a bot. Owing to the fact that AI models have a self leaning feature, they can track human behavior and also learn from them, doing more than what they have been trained to do. An important thing to note here is that AI bots not only learn from their surrounding but also improve themselves while doing so.

A simple example here could be chess. The model is trained with the basic moves. With time, it learns more moves and becomes stronger day-by-day. Similar is the case with AI-driven RPA bots. They learn and mimic human behavior in an attempt to improve end-to-end efficiency while reducing the time and efforts spent to do a particular task.

Another key advantage of using AI in RPA bots is that they can process data in real-time which further accelerates the amount of data processed every second. Often organizations receive tons of requests at the same. For a human to process such a huge amount of data is tough. AI bots, on the other hand, can do it and pretty fast.

To put it this way, artificial intelligence has the potential to not just transform process automation but revolutionize it and for the good. For organizations who have RPA implemented within their lines of business operation, it’s time to level up and strive for intelligent bots.

And in case you are among the smaller lot who is still not sure if RPA is the need of the hour, it’s high time that you stopped pondering and started acting. RPA and AI together can fuel your business’s growth but only if done in the right way.

Rehost, Replatform, and Refactor – Which Application Migration Strategy to Choose and When?

Planning to move your siloed infrastructure to the cloud might definitely be the right decision. But are you aware of what exactly cloud transformation means and what are the different ways you can move your system to the cloud? To rephrase, do you know which strategy is best for your business?

Not sure?

Don’t worry! This article has all you need to know about application migration, followed by the strategies that help in the same. We also highlight the reasons why one would be better than the other given a particular situation. Without much ado, let’s get started!

What is Application Migration?

In simple terms, Application Migration is the transfer of software applications from one infrastructure to the other. Or to put it this way, application migration is the process of moving all of the enterprise applications from the on-premise architecture to the cloud. What’s important to note here is that the destination environment could be anything from a private cloud, public cloud, or a hybrid environment.

Having said that, one thing that intrigues most of the leaders is whether they actually need such a thing? Considering that their business is working well with decent performance, why would one undergo the pain of transforming their infrastructure, moving to the cloud?

To answer the above, one must take into consideration the rising importance of remote access. With technological advancements increasing by leaps and bounds, organizations are compelled to not just keep an eye on them but also find one that would benefit their organization. One of these is cloud migration.

Where the traditional infrastructure seems good, it has its limitations which tend to disrupt the functioning and performance of the organization. For one, employees must be present within the office premises to access the system and work. Since every data is stored in the local storage, sharing and accessing them becomes a hassle. Not to forget the time and money spent on hosting an on-premise architecture.

Cloud infrastructure, on the other hand, can be accessed over the web. Not only the applications but also the data associated with them are hosted online. Meaning that employees can access them as and when they want. This makes your business running no matter what time of day it is or where you are.

Sounds good?

Now that you might be convinced on how application migration benefits your business, here are three different strategies to know and decide before making the move?
