Oracle E-Business Extended Managed Services
Oracle E-Business R12.1 Support is nearing its end of life. From January 2022, Oracle will no longer provide new fixes and security updates. Customers running Oracle E-Business R12.1 beyond 2021 face a gap in their Oracle support services, even where they continue to pay Oracle's support fees.
Our Extended Managed Services provides support for customers who are no longer receiving Oracle’s Premier software maintenance and support services. For customers using Oracle E-Business R12.1 post-2021 and maintaining an Oracle Sustaining Support & Maintenance subscription, we will deliver a subset of our Extended Managed Services to fill the gaps left by Oracle’s Sustaining Support. This is delivered as a Managed Service and benefits from our UK delivery, ITIL-based processes, 24/7 Service Desk, Service Management and comprehensive SLAs including incident resolution times.
What does the Extended Managed Service include?

Some Of Our Case Studies
Rapid Migration of Arqiva’s Oracle E-Business Suite
Arqiva a leading UK communications infrastructure company using Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) to manage its payroll for employees and pensioners. Their Managed Service contract was ending imminently, and they required a provider who could design a new payroll process to support both legislative and business change as well as undertake their EBS Managed Service.
The European Bank Safeguards its Oracle Applications with Claremont's Security Solution
The EBRD makes extensive use of Oracle technology for its three hundred separate databases. A security audit identified that changes were required to ensure these Oracle systems were kept secure. Claremont designed and implemented a solution that would connect all ERBD’s Oracle databases to its corporate identity solution – Microsoft Active Directory (AD) – where its users’ network logons were stored. This would ensure that Oracle users were authenticated against AD, password maintenance was enforced, and each user required only one username and password for multiple applications.
