Any E-Business Suite implementation consists of several environments. It is crucial that these are managed to ensure changes are correctly and efficiently deployed. As the number of environments increases so does the complexity of managing them.
This does not mean that all environments should be identical. Certain setups reflect the specific environment they are associated with, some may yet to be deployed and some may have been created for specific test scenarios and no longer be required. It is important to be able to quickly identify any differences that exist between environments and ensure these are expected and, where they are not, be able to address them.
Where an implementation includes multiple entities, such as operating units or ledgers, many setups should be consistent across them – but there will also be differences due, for example, to local and legislative reasons. Activities such as entity rollouts are significantly simplified if setups for a new entity can be compared against an existing one; however, standard reporting provides little assistance in doing this.
An even greater challenge for organisations is to compare before and after scenarios to understand the effects of activities such as patching or upgrades. Standard reporting is not provided that gives this type of perspective.
ConfigSnapshot provides comprehensive capabilities including:
Comparisons are flexible so you can choose the level of detail reported, e.g.:
ConfigSnapshot provides further comparison options to help cater for specific business requirements. For example, where two environments have become out of sync ConfigSnapshot can create a transformation report showing all actions that would be required to realign the environments.

"We had a major challenge on reducing downtime during upgrade of Oracle EBS from 11i and R12. One of the critical and time taking activities was doing functional setups during Cutover. We found no other tool but ConfigSnapshot supporting migration of functional setups from one environment to another in very easy and simple steps which not only reduced the deployment time from days to few minutes but also eliminating costly manual errors. On top of all that, ConfigSnapshot team expedited the release of some of the features on priority when requested and have been providing excellent and prompt technical support. "
