Upgrade to E-Business Suite 12.1.3 or 12.2?

Which Oracle E-Business Suite Release Should You Target: 12.1 or 12.2?


12.2 is latest release of Oracle E-Business Suite, Customer who are in 11i (11.5.10.2) can directly upgrade to 12.2 instead of 12.1

But there is a general query on to upgrade to 12.1.3 now or directly upgrade to 12.2 which is latest of Oracle eBiz.

Consider targeting 12.1 if any of the following circumstances applies to your organization:

 You prefer to target a release on which Oracle has thousands of live customers.
 You would like to stay on 12.1 for 3-5 years before upgrading to 12.2.
 You need to move from a release below 11.5.10 with no direct upgrade to 12.2.

Consider targeting 12.2 if any of the following circumstances applies to your organization:

 You need the high availability provided by Online Patching.
 You want the functional enhancements that are in 12.2.
 You prefer to invest in a single project to upgrade directly to 12.2.
