London. November 9th, 2020: A study conducted by the UK’s leading independent Oracle managed service provider, Claremont, has revealed that the majority of UK businesses using Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) are running on old versions of the business critical ERP system.

More than half (58%) of the businesses polled claimed they did intend on making the upgrade to R12.2.
