DIVESTITURE SOFTWARE

Divestiture Software – Create Two Separate Oracle EBS Instances.

Create two separate Oracle E-Business Suite databases that are complete, functioning, and fully configured with only the information relevant to each continuing company with eprentise software.

Using the software’s filter criteria, you determine what data remains in the source instance and what related data is moved or copied to a new instance.

You can easily divest data based on any type of criteria, including:

  • Legal entity
  • Sets of books
  • Business or organizational unit
  • Product line
  • Customers
  • Regions

You define the criteria to filter out the divested company’s data.

Our software creates two separate, complete, functioning databases.

Result: No training or implementation required because both instances are fully configured and ready for operation.

  • Removes data from source instance that does not relate to remaining operations.
  • Allows users to access only information that relates to their part of the business.
  • Users can define different rules to determine how the data for the new business is extracted from the current production environment.
  • No training or implementation required because both instances are fully configured and ready for operation.
  • Has a user-defined rules base that allows filtering or divesting on any number of criteria configuration and operational data required to support the new company. The filtered data are then eliminated from the current production environment.
  • Retains access to historical information pertinent to each operation.
  • The user can develop a variety of scenarios to view the performance of the existing company before the divestiture and the impact of the divestiture on both costs and revenues.
  • Removes data defined by user criteria to a separate, fully functional divested database instance.
  • Both source and divested instances maintain relational integrity of configuration data, master data and transactions.
  • Supports complex filter rules. Users can specify multiple filter rules when defining the data that is moved to the new instance.
  • The filter criteria determine what data remains in the source instance and what related data is moved or copied to a new instance.
  • Built-in audit and reconciliation features.
  • Enforces all mandatory, unique and primary key constraints and relational integrity requirements of any relational database.
  • No programming required.
  • Hardware, platform, and version independent.
  • Results in complete, consistent and correct data.

Automotive Parts Company Consolidates Regional Production Instances Of Oracle E-Business Suite To Achieve Consistent Business Processes And Reduce Maintenance And License Fees

Consolidation software from eprentise enabled this auto parts distributor to consolidate two regional production instances into a single, global instance, saving millions of dollars and months of project time.

By comparison, a manual migration project for a company with the same challenges caused by multiple instances cost that business between $12 and $15 million dollars, took them approximately 18 months and 250 consultants to complete it, and brought over only limited history and balances.

Upon their acquisition of another company in late 2010, the customer needed to change the newly acquired company’s calendar periods to make them in-line with their own for financial reporting purposes. Because the date of the actual acquiring transaction was not initially known, the parent company was on a very tight schedule and required a flexible solution that was capable of making transaction-level changes to the acquired company’s EBS system quickly and on-demand.

FlexField software is affordable

FlexField makes changing your E-Business Suite Chart of Accounts very inexpensive, especially when compared to time-consuming reimplementations and months of consulting fees. Each FlexField COA Unit is a license to change one named accounting flexfield in one Oracle E-Business Suite production instance one time, and any number of times in associated non-production instances. Prices quoted are per accounting flexfield. The discount level structure indicated below applies to FlexField licenses purchased for the benefit of a single entity, such as a company, legal entity, subdivision of an ordering activity (service, bureau, agency, division, command), profit and loss center etc., or other similar operational unit. The discount level structure is based on the quantity discount level table structure (below) such that an entity purchasing four units (to change four charts of accounts), for example, must pay $35,700 for each of the first three units and $31,800 for the fourth unit for a total price of $138,900. Prices quoted are per accounting flexfield (per chart of accounts) in USD. The discount level applies only to additional licenses purchased within two (2) years of the initial purchase. The license fee includes remote support from the eprentise team to guide you through the installation and use of our software. There are no additional or ongoing product support or consulting fees.

For customers in need of any of the below post-change add-ins, add $11,950 per accounting flexfield per module. Customers utilizing the HR module of E-Business Suite must purchase the HR Cost Allocation add-in in order to apply new chart of accounts changes to the payroll cost allocation flexfield. Federal government agencies are required to purchase the Budget Allocation add-in to apply the new chart of accounts changes to the federal budget tables.
