To help customers accelerate the value of their Oracle solutions, Oracle today announced that it has set a new start date of Oracle Premier Support for the latest releases of Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle’s JD Edwards World.
By setting the Oracle Premier Support timeline for Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 Update 2 and Oracle's JD Edwards World A9.2 Update 1 to their general availability dates, Oracle is giving customers more flexibility in their upgrade planning.
Premier Support for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 Update 2 will begin November 2010 and end November 2015, while Premier Support for JD Edwards World A9.2 Update 1 will now run from May 2010 to May 2015.
The changes to the support timeline will allow JD Edwards customers to begin upgrades to the current versions immediately and enjoy Premier Support until 2015 without incurring additional fees.
To ensure continued access to industry-leading support and valuable product updates, Oracle encourages JD Edwards’ customers to begin planning upgrades from versions that are now unsupported or about to come off of Premier Support.
New tools and resources are available to customers who are planning upgrades on Oracle Support, including Oracle Upgrade Advisor and a new electronic Release Value Proposition, allowing customers to select their release path and receive a customized enhancements report.
At the end of the Premier Support period, customers can access simple, predictive and flexible support that helps drive business success across the entire Oracle technology environment through Oracle Extended Support.
