Earlier this year, Oracle delivered the EBS Enterprise Command Centers – April 2023 Update and EBS Mobile Release 10.0, and two EBS Cloud Manager Updates: 23.1.1 and 23.2.1.
Thousands of organisations around the world still rely on Oracle E-Business Suite to run their key business operations. It is natural that organisations that rely on EBS for so much need to feel confident that their EBS systems will remain viable through their planning horizon.
EBS 2023 Investment Themes In 2023, focused on the following themes:
Customer Requests and Voting
EBS Enterprise Command Center Updates

The continuing pattern of new releases is consistent with Oracle's strategy of continuous innovation on Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2, which delivers ongoing applications and technology updates without a major upgrade, along with Oracle Premier Support for Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2 through at least 2034.
It has always been Oracle's long-term plan to deliver a major release beyond EBS R12.2. This has now been clarified with the committed updated roadmap to support the next release of EBS through 2034 at least.

How to Future Proof your investment in Oracle
One of the major components of an EBS environment which is very labour intensive is the P2P processes, initially in raising the purchase order (PO) and then the data entry of supplier invoices.
The supplier invoice entry process in EBS requires significant manual effort and necessitates the users to go through a number of screens to complete the task.
This area has seen major 3rd party technology enhancements over the past decade and clients who previously purchased a system, even in the past 3 years, can see significant improvements and cost reductions. The best generation of products are now cloud-based, which enables significant cost advantages, and provides automatic updates over the contract period for no additional fees.
They can also offer a seamless upgrade path from on-premise to Oracles ERP Cloud SaaS solution, future-proofing the automation of P2P.
Importantly they offer business users real benefits, as they have modern and intuitive interfaces to minimise mouse clicks and required keystrokes, typically with friendly single-screen processing. Some are even using mobile technology to further enhance the process and minimise user effort. These ensure you can obtain real and measurable ROI. Want to know how?
