Here’s the upshot for those of you “keeping the faith” with 11i. The iceberg is melting, the curtain is coming down, the lights are dimming, the fat lady is singing. The later versions of 11i were good things…we got bundles of value out of 11i…but, like it or not, it’s winding down in favor of a better product in R12.1.3. It’s time to upgrade. Frankly, the longer you keep the faith with 11i, the more you’ll miss out on the value of the new products…and the more it will cost when you do make the move.
