Retirement of Oracle EMM Advantage

As of the December 01, 2011 retirement date:

  • EMM Advantage offering will no longer be available for purchase.
  • Oracle will no longer provide support for EMM Advantage.
  • Additionally, EMM Advantage delivery and collateral will be removed from the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

Oracle Customers and Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Diamond, Platinum, and Gold Partners are encouraged to begin the transition to the Oracle® Unified Method (OUM).

About the Oracle® Unified Method

Oracle is evolving the Oracle® Unified Method (OUM) to achieve the vision of supporting the entire Enterprise IT lifecycle, including support for the successful implementation of every Oracle product.

OUM now provides full support -- Delivery and Training -- for Oracle E-Business Suite R12 upgrade projects. This support represents a major milestone in the evolution of OUM and enables practices to begin the transition from EMM Advantage to OUM.
