Oracle R12 Customization Assessment Tool

Get a clear picture of your Oracle R12 customizations in just 2 weeks.
The SmartDog Oracle R12 Customization Assessment Tool (RCAT) takes a snapshot of your entire system, and provides critical information on the elements which can have an impact on an Oracle R12 upgrade. SmartDog developed this tool as a way to automate the discovery process and streamline upgrade planning. Typically, customers have a lot of questions:

“How many customizations are there in my system?”
“Will these customizations still work in R12?
“Can these customizations be replaced with the
new functionality?”
“Are there any new features that I can turn on in the
new software?”
“How long will it take to get everything working in R12?”
“How much will this cost me?”

 

How it works
SmartDog works directly with the customer to run the RCAT assessment tool and extract the details on the custom objects, including packages, procedures, functions, triggers, views, forms, reports, personalizations, workflows, concurrent programs and value sets. We then develop an assessment which can be used to drive this discussion.

 

The following deliverables are included in this assessment:

  • Formal presentation of the assessment and your options to mitigate risk.
  • Detailed listing of custom programs and their usage statistics.
  • Detailed report of customizations that will break, or are at risk of breaking, in the upgrade, including actual line numbers of custom code.
  • Documentation of all customizations that are dependent on database objects that have been removed or changed in R12.
