3 - Are you willing to expand your currenthardware footprint?
If you move to Oracle Fusion, you’ll almost certainlyhave to buy more servers. That’s because Oracle
Fusion Architecture (OFA) demands more computingpower. Why? More components and more complexity.
One of OFA’s main components is the
aforementioned Oracle Fusion Middleware.Components within Oracle Fusion Middleware includeOracle WebLogic Suite, Oracle WebCenter, Oracle SOASuite, Oracle Identity Management, Oracle JDeveloper,and a whole host of development tools for creatingrich enterprise applications.

again, it’s possible that many of your previous
customizations are now obsolete because they existas new features in Oracle Fusion.
Before you can upgrade, you’ll need to devote
significant man-hours to assessing your current
customizations and deciding whether they’re stillnecessary. Once you’ve finalized your list of still
you’ll need to determine how
many of these features are offered in Oracle Fusion
or, alternatively, Oracle E-Business Suite R12.
