What is coexistence and how does it work?
Coexistence simply means using selected applications from the Oracle Cloud along with core installations of Oracle E-Business Suite, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, and other ERPs. Coexistence allows you to continue to leverage your existing investments while taking advantage of business benefits of the Oracle SCM Cloud. Typical coexistence scenarios for inventory companies are:
- Move corporate financials and indirect procurement to the cloud first, and then order management, manufacturing, and planning.
- Migrate one division at a time with the entire Cloud Suite—Financials, Order Management, Procurement, Inventory, Manufacturing, and Planning—while leaving the rest of the business on the existing ERP.
- Migrate your warehouses to Oracle WMS Cloud and then to the entire Cloud Suite.
Contact your Oracle sales representative for more information.

Yes. Coexistence is possible for any core ERP/SCM system, but there is no prebuilt integration available at this time. Oracle has global partners who can perform this work for you. Contact your Oracle sales representative for more information.
