    Preview of Oracle Applications Cloud Release 13 (update 17D)
    Oracle Cloud  Customer Connect

    Hello Oracle Cloud User,

    I. Release Readiness material is now available for Oracle Fusion Applications R13 (update 17D) – Sales & Service, Human Capital Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, Supply Chain Management, and Common Technologies. Specifically, you will find:

    • New Feature Summaries:  This content includes a summary level description of each new feature and product (formerly known as RCDs)
    • What's New:  Learn about what's new in the upcoming release by reviewing expanded discussions of each new feature and product, including capability overviews, business benefits, setup considerations, usage tips, and more
    • Release Training:  Created by product management, these self-paced, interactive training sessions are deep dives into key new enhancements and products
    • Product Documentation:  Oracle's online documentation includes detailed product guides and training tutorials to ensure your successful implementation and use of the Oracle Fusion Applications

    II. A Reminder on Release Cadence and Terminology

    Going forward, Oracle Fusion Applications will have four quarterly releases per calendar year – February, May, August, and November. In addition, to be more consistent with established cloud terminology, we are adjusting our versioning. Because Release 13 will have quarterly functional revisions, we will begin versioning Oracle Cloud Applications as follows:

    Example: Oracle Sales Cloud R13 (update 17B), Oracle Sales Cloud R13 (update 17C), Oracle Sales Cloud R13 (update 17D)

    The number 17 represents the calendar year. A, B, C, D represents the first, second, third, or fourth quarterly revision in that calendar year. One time note: There is no R13 update 17A as the initial R13 introduction fell into the 2nd calendar or B quarter. In addition, the monthly Patch Bundle will be renamed to Maintenance Pack.

    Access is simple...

      Hi Katrine,

      You explained it so well in a few lines than most 200 page documentations out there.  THANK YOU!!

      Also, I am looking for a full list types of updates that are available for Oracle for R13 HCM/ERP and EPM applications (i.e.: Monthly maintenance packs, Quarterly Updates, Vertex, emergency updates, etc).  Can someone point me to a page that lists all of this or be able to list them out here?
