'Upgrades: Why the Big Bang Theory?'

Upgrading your E1 system requires a significant investment, in time and money, and can have a huge impact on your business. By changing their approach and keeping ‘code current’, users can save time and money in the long term, reduce the impact major release upgrades have on the business and ensure they are maximising the potential of their E1 system and getting full ROI on their Oracle maintenance budget. Delegates should come to learn more about how they can take full advantage of this new approach to upgrading.
