Client’s Oracle EBS ERP system was at the end of its life cycle, which was a risk to business continuity since critical Business Processes were controlled within the ERP. Client decided to re-implement its Oracle EBS application and engaged ChainSys as its data migration partner utilizing the ChainSys dataZap for data migration and reconciliation. The Oracle EBS R12 re-implementation consisted of over sixty five data migration objects covering three primary tracks - Finance; Project & Services and Supply Chain Management. Complexity was added due to the need to accomplish data migration in a short duration with multiple back-to-back test cycles.
Data migration had to work in tandem with application re-design and process re-engineering.
Client had a challenging environment with numerous custom processes in-place and wanted to simplify its business and IT landscape during the Oracle EBS re-implementation. As part of this endeavor, Client was focused on the reduction of customization/CEMLI and global process re-design while following Corporate Mandates on Enterprise Standards, CoA, etc.
ChainSys deployed DataZap to help solve business & technical shortcomings. Data was directly extracted from the Oracle EBS source system with pre-configured templates. All data transformations were accomplished within the tool and pre-validations were done against the target EBS R12 instance prior to loading data into the target system.
Migration Challenges were:
ChainSys deployed dataZap for data migration and reconciliation for the Oracle EBS re-implementation. Solution highlights are as follows:
Data Reconciliation and validations using dataZense
The transformation process built within the tool was key to success as it helped roll-out test cycles in quick succession. The transformation business rules were perfected in each test cycle based on the re-engineering. The reconciliation dashboards helped the users to verify and sign-off.
