Navigating the Cloud: Key Considerations for Oracle Cloud Migration

Oracle Cloud migration can be quite a rollercoaster ride for businesses. According to Oracle, more than 80% of migrations go over budget – and trust me, that’s not a fun ride! But fear not, my friends, we’ve got some tips and tricks to make this migration adventure smooth and enjoyable, like a ride at Disneyland!

Before we buckle up, let’s check out what you need to prepare for this Oracle Cloud migration journey.

Clear Migration Scope: Okay, picture this – you’re going on a road trip, but you have no idea where you’re heading. Not fun, right? Similarly, enterprises often struggle with a clear scope of their EBS migration to Oracle Cloud, leading to unnecessary testing of processes that don’t need attention. So, make sure to know where you’re going, and you’ll avoid wandering off the beaten path.

Understanding of as-is processes and configurations: Think of your Cloud environment as your new home. You want to furnish it with all your stuff from your old place, right? But to avoid a chaotic move, you must have clear documentation of your “as-is” processes and configurations. Trust me, you don’t want to lose your favorite couch in the process!

Process Deviation Understanding: So, you’ve got your business processes all figured out. You’ve made them unique and personalized, just like your favorite coffee order. But wait, Oracle Cloud has its limitations on customization – it’s like they have a fixed menu. So, you better know what you can bring along and what you’ll have to leave behind. Nobody likes a broken coffee maker!

Business Process Maps: Imagine your business processes as a map, and you’re Indiana Jones trying to find the hidden treasure. You don’t want to be lost in the jungle of processes after migration! Have clear process maps, and you’ll avoid ending up like an adventure gone wrong!

Critical Report Validation: Reports are like the GPS of your business. You don’t want to follow the wrong directions, right? So, validate those reports properly, or you might end up in a “business Bermuda Triangle” – not fun at all!

Integration Validation: Oracle Cloud is like a party, and it loves inviting other platforms to join in the fun! But if they don’t get along well, it’s like a bad party crasher. Know your integrations, or you might have to play the mediator!

Security SOD Permission Validation: Picture this – Oracle Cloud is a castle with lots of doors and keys. You want to make sure those keys are in the right hands, or else it’s like the Kingdom falling into chaos! Validate those security roles, and you’ll be the ruler of a well-secured Cloud Kingdom!
