Mark van Elferen is Functional Development Director at Radboud University. He and eight other developers are responsible for the university’s Oracle EBS system – including 4,000 users. Radboud makes use of almost all of Oracle’s EBS Financials modules – Projects, Purchasing, Accounts Receivable, Payables, Payroll, Fixed Assets, and others.
Radboud University’s Oracle EBS team wanted to remain current with Oracle EBS patching. They follow Oracle’s well known advice and patch their system twice a year. Their challenge was huge – when they updated their EBS, they had no way of knowing what was impacted.
“We run regression tests each time, and have only three weeks to complete the patching project. Before Panaya, we didn’t even know what to test first,”
