RE: Oracle Application version transfer(10.7 to 11i)

There is a big change in the delivery mechanism of the user interface between 10.7 and 11i, as you are probably aware, away from a fat-client GUI to a thinner client web delivery method with a separate applications server sitting in between your user's browser and the database server. This new architecture will affect your network bandwidth usage - it may improve it, but then again it may not.
For info on new and changed features in 11i check http://www.oracle.com/applications/ if you haven't already.
If you have done any customisation of the 10.7 interface, i.e. written any bespoke modules, or modified standard screens or reports, then porting these may be a significant part of your effort.
I believe Oracle supplies some utilities for migrating between applications releases, but your mileage may vary when using them, depending on the complexity of your set-up, and what requirements you have to migrate data seamlessly (e.g. if all your invoices in the new system start from a different number, is this a problem ?).
Effort involved will also depend on which Apps modules you are using of course.
If possible, avoid doing any business process changes alongside the upgrade, as these will complicate migration.
Finally, get to know your Oracle Support & Sales consultants, and try and get whatever free advice you can manage from them.
