Any E-Business Suite implementation, even where only a few modules are being used, requires hundreds, sometimes thousands, of configuration settings to be set to ensure that it meets the needs of the business, IT and audit. These setups must be effectively managed across multiple environments; all setups being accurately repeated in each environment where they are applied. This presents a major challenge as most setup must be done manually in each environment; with a high risk of manual error and little ability for comparison except to do so manually.
Automated solutions provided by Oracle, such as iSetup and Generic Loader (FNDLOAD), are inflexible and cover only a small fraction of the application setup areas. Public APIs to assist with migration are available for fewer than 5% of setup steps in the E-Business Suite.
As well as the risk of error associated with manual configuration the time it can take to complete and check can put significant pressure on projects and release cycles and greatly increase the cost of managing the system.
ConfigSnapshot includes the most comprehensive coverage of setup migration for the E-Business Suite available today; currently supporting in excess of 1,500 distinct steps across dozens of modules.
Taking advantage of public APIs where they exist but not limited where they do not, ConfigSnapshot can directly control the E-Business Suite application to ensure migrated data is subject to standard application validation.
Pre-defined metadata is available for supported steps enabling you to begin using migration with the minimum of fuss; the approach also allowing for maximum flexibility to deal with environment specific scenarios without expensive development requirements.
There is support within the migration mechanism to submit and monitor any concurrent processes required as part of planned activities.
Once data has been migrated, comparison reports between either the plan data or source environment with the target environment can be run to confirm all data has migrated successfully.

"We used ConfigSnapshot as part of the integration of two R12 instances as part of a merger and it proved to be a valuable tool throughout the project. The ability to quickly document and compare between multiples instances was central to ensuring the project progressed on schedule through to Go-Live - despite the substantial levels of new configuration required. On completion of the project, we were also able to very quickly produce the required documentation for auditors of all configuration changes made - saving significant amounts of time. We would definitely recommend the product."
