The New and Upcoming 11.2.3.xxx Patches

 

11.1.2.3.501 Patch

I’ve already blogged about the .500 patch. But recently Oracle quietly released a .501 patch. A Few things that it addresses

  • Support for SQL Server 2008 Clustering
  • Errors introduced in earlier version where Secure Socket Layer (SSL) broke HFM and EPMA
  • Fixed unencrypted passwords being in export files
  • Cannot access Shared servers via http://servername:port/interop
  • Can’t send an email at the completion of a task flow

 

11.1.2.3.502

  • Expecting improvements to Hybrid Essbase

 

11.1.2.3.600

Coming to the Cloud Soon: 11.1.2.3.600 patch. But why not on-prem???

A new .600 patch will be released soon for the Oracle Planning on the Cloud service.   This patch will mainly have significant mobile interface changes. I saw a demo at the Kscope partner briefing… and wow does it look nice. Think more iphone-like icons and interface. Sleek, simple, elegant.

While the push to Mobile is great, there are still a some limitations.

The biggest is that planning modules not support on mobile at this time…. (may explain why modules are not supported in the Oracle Cloud?).   According to Oracle rumor mill, here is why:

  1. UI: each module would have different home page icons. Trying to figure that out
  2. Pricing: 11.1.2.4 Modules should be available in cloud. Need to figure out SaaS pricing for the modules.
  3. Support: Some modules need to support multiple applications, currently only one is supported in the Oracle Cloud.

 

Regardless, I think the general feel is the mobile interface seems more geared for data consumption and workflow, rather than development, data entry, etc.

Either way, these are cool features. But I think I can speak for the rest of the industry and ask why there is not more parity between the cloud and the on-premise code set or at least a faster adoption time.

The .600 features should be rolled into the on-premise release of 11.1.2.4. (See 11.1.2.4 Rumor Mill article.).  Both of which will be released this year.

Starting next year, however, the code sets will be back in sync with all code being developed in the Oracle Cloud first, and then released to the on-premise set.

  1. Eric, did we miss your 11.1.2.4 rumor mill article, couldn’t find it. When I found .600 listed in drop down, I was looking forward to see what changes will be there. I think they should close the gap between Cloud and On-Premise releases.
