Use of Multiple Organizations (Multi-Org) in Release 11i


Checked for relevance on 25-Nov-2008

In response to requests from our customers, Oracle Applications announces an extension to our support of non Multi-Org implementations in Release 11i for as long as 11i is supported. Customers using Release 11i with no organization definition will not be required to convert to Multi-Org on 11i. However, new features introduced in Release 11i may require conversion to Multi-Org. This supersedes all information previously placed on metalink concerning de-support dates for non Multi-Org on 11i. Multi-Org functionality was first introduced in Release 10.7 to enable Oracle subledger applications such as Payables, Receivables, Inventory and Purchasing, to access multiple General Ledger sets of books without multiple installs of these products. Multi-Org allows users to define one or more Operating Units, and to secure setups and transactions by operating unit. Each responsibility is linked to one operating unit, and each operating unit is linked to one General Ledger set of books. Customers who have not enabled Multi-Org are limited to working with a single General Ledger set of books.

Use of Multiple Organizations in Release 12


Release 12 of Oracle Applications, which is expected to be available in 2006, will require Multi-Org. When customers upgrade to Release 12, the upgrade process will include the conversion to Multi-Org. All new Release 12 implementations will automatically enable Multi-Org. Release 12 also offers MultiOrg Access Control, which enables an applications responsibility to access multiple operating units if desired. Converting to Multi-Org does not require the use of multiple operating units or sets of books, but it does enable you to use multiple operating units and sets of books if desired. Converting to Multi-Org by itself will not produce any noticeable change in behavior for users; if you do not define multiple operating units and/or sets of books, Multi-Org is transparent to users.

Summary
While customers using Release 11i with no organization definition are not required to convert to MultiOrg on 11i, Oracle Applications strongly recommends that our customers convert to Multi-Org as soon as possible. Also, new features introduced in Release 11i may require conversion to Multi-Org. We are making this recommendation in order to improve performance across the E-Business Suite, as well as to support Multi-Org Access Control , an upcoming feature in Rel 12 of the E-Business Suite.
