SOMERSET, N.J., March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Core Services Corporation ("Core Services"), an Oracle Platinum Partner and OAUG Three Star Partner, successfully completed a major Oracle R12 upgrade project with CitationAir ("CitationAir"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cessna Aircraft Company.  This significant accomplishment is another example of Core Services' deep consulting and technical expertise with the Oracle E-Business Suite ("EBS").  Through their mutually beneficial, collaborative partnership, Core Services and CitationAir completed this complex upgrade cost-effectively and efficiently, migrating from Oracle EBS 11.5.6 to 12.1.3, including a database upgrade.

William Saint-Louis, CitationAir's Director of Software Development says, "With the help of Core Services' Consulting team, we were able to complete our R12 upgrade on schedule and on budget.  After their initial assessment, Core Services' expert consulting and database administration ("DBA") teams provided a seamless user experience without disruption to CitationAir's Oracle environments.  Engaging Core Services Consulting was a great choice for our company!"

"After CitationAir experienced poor performance from their hardware, Core Services devised a plan where the timing run and Production upgrade were completed on Core Services Cloud and then transferred back to CitationAir's hardware," says Barry Brown, Core Services' Vice President of Consulting. "Premier Support for EBS 11.5.6 had ended several years ago.  Thus, remaining with that version would have resulted in very limited support and much lower user productivity and functionality."

Jim Bistis, President and CEO of Core Services, says, "We are grateful to have satisfied clients and dedicated staff who collaborated well to achieve this superior outcome."  Bistis continues, "Core Services is a company dedicated to providing superior services to technologically savvy clients by focusing on their unique needs and formulating intelligent solutions tailored just for them."
