Craig Wilkerson, M-D Building's CIO says, "With the help of the consulting services provided by Core Services we were able to complete our upgrade to R12 on schedule and on budget.  The combination of Core's consulting and hosting services has proven to be a good decision for our company."

"M-D Building has a large Oracle EBS footprint encompassing Manufacturing, Financials, Order Processing and Warehouse Management, but was lagging behind several major Oracle EBS release levels," says Barry Brown, Core Services' Vice President of Consulting.  "Premier Support for EBS 11.5.9 officially ended in June 2008.  Thus, remaining with that version would result in only very limited support and much lower user productivity and functionality."  Brown continues, "After our initial assessment, M-D Building agreed that a 24 week and three iteration upgrade project was the most effective strategy to pursue.  Core Services' expert consulting and database administration ("DBA") teams provided a seamless user experience without disruption to M-D Building's Oracle environments."
