We proactively manage your upgrades

A core component of our service is the end-to-end management and co-ordination of the Cloud Release Upgrade process. In the Cloud world, application upgrades are much more frequent than with on premise applications.  Certus has devised the Upgrade Aware Service as a cornerstone to the engage™ Business Support offering.

The key benefits of our Upgrade Aware service are as follows:

  • All Oracle Cloud clients will benefit from two significant updates to their application every year
  • We will deliver the same upgrade for many clients, which increases our experience and knowledge
  • We are often aware of potential issues (and the fixes) before you start, reducing the risk and duration of the upgrade
  • We retain and maintain the regression test scripts and can execute the scripts on the client’s behalf
  • We will be very knowledgeable of your system and your business challenges enabling us to highlight new features that will give direct benefit

Basically, we concentrate on your upgrade so you can concentrate on your business.
