This will be your last major upgrade as 11.2 is now part of “Applications Unlimited” where enhancements are driven by customer needs and priorities. You will no longer have to large major upgrade every few years but will get bug fixes and new features in smaller PSUs.

Oracle EPM 11.2 will now support Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. It is certified to run on Windows 2019, Oracle 12.2 and Microsoft SQL Server 2016 with newer versions of SQL Server supported in future PSU’s.

The supported migration path will be an out of place migration. Install 11.2 onto new servers and migrate from the old environment. The upgrade path will be from 11.1.2.4.xxx, including 11.1.2.4.700 and 11.1.2.4.900. Note that Financial Close Management can only be upgraded from version 11.1.2.4_253 to the latest patch level.
