Oracle 11.5.6 Features/Enhancements

Oracle 11.5.6 Features/Enhancements

Oracle 11.5.6 Features/Enhancements

Hello!  A client of mine is contemplating upgrading from 11.3.0 to 11.5.6 and I need to know what the enhancements are?  Does anyone know on a high level what they are?  Does a matrix exist that compares the different versions' functionality?  Any insight is greatly appreciated.


RE: Oracle 11.5.6 Features/Enhancements

Note:  I made a mistake on the versions.  The client has 11.0.3 and desires 11.5.4.A.


RE: Oracle 11.5.6 Features/Enhancements

Hi Jack,

There is no matrix that I am aware of (we tried to find one when we did our upgrade) but see if the document at the following link provides the type of information you require:


We upgraded from 11.0.3 to 11.5.3 (11i) back in June 2001, and the changes to functionality in the modules we use was not huge (GL, FA, PO, AP, AR, CE, PA).  Our users were able to change over quite easily between the two without any major re-training.  The upgrade to 11i allowed us to install the localised Payroll for AU, which was the main point of our upgrade in the first place.  

The user interface look and feel changes significantly between versions and is a lot nicer in 11i (although it appears to be a bit slower even though we upgraded our server hardware - I assume the desktop is the problem).  

11i is reasonably stable once you get up to version 11.5.5.  I would recommend upgrading to the latest possible version 11.5.6 or even 11.5.7 (when available) rather than 11.5.4.  This will help avoid patching and support issues down the track.  There are major changes in the underlying technology b/w 11.0.3 and 11i, so be prepared for a major upgrade effort.

I hope this helps.
