Oracle’s Application Implementation Methodology

Oracle’s Application Implementation Methodology is their methodology for the implementation of its e-Business Suite (ebs). According to Oracle: –

AIM Advantage is a time-tested implementation approach and toolkit for planning, executing and controlling the implementation of your Oracle E-Business Suite. It is the only implementation method specifically built for Oracle Applications, and has been used in thousands of successful implementations by Oracle Consulting, Oracle’s select implementation partners, and customers.

I’ve used this methodology on all of the Oracle Applications implementations I have been involved in and have found it to be a very useful tool. The methodology helps you plan and document an implementation at all stages of the life cycle. Information on the pricing can be found by performing a search for “AIM” at the Oracle Store. Here you will find two options: –

  1. AIM advantage without Supplement Option – Packaged Method Named User (US$2,200)
  2. AIM Advantage with Supplement Option – Packaged Method Named User (US$2,530)

Both of these options provide you with the AIM CD-ROM and documentation whilst according to the Store, with the supplement option:

Oracle will provide access to AIM Advantage 3.0 supplements made generally available to commercial customers for a period of twelve months from the effective date of purchase. Supplements may include new deliverable templates and point releases of AIM Advantage (e.g. Version 3.0 to version 3.1), but will not include new major releases (e.g. Version 3.0 to version 4.0); major releases are licensed separately.

As the pricing is based on a named user, an organizations implementation cost would be directly related to the number of users that would make use of the software. To continue receiving annual updates via the supplementary option the cost would be 15% of the current list price of AIM.
