Through its lifecycle any business system goes through a series of upgrades to the newer version. This is especially true for all COTS systems line PeopleSoft and Oracle eBusiness Suite. Spyre Solutions has developed the processes, re-usable programs, scripts and other artifacts to execute these upgrades quickly and efficiently.

Our upgrades are centered around our Canadian Upgrade Lab. Staffed with all onshore upgrade experts we can offer our customers a very high degree of resource certainty, continuity and experience without incurring significant additional cost premiums as compared with the offshore model.
