Productivity Acceleration Platform Comparison:
Epilogue Opus vs. Oracle UPK

Epilogue Insights | October 22, 2018

Oracle’s User Productivity Kit (UPK) is a legacy (the last major release was in 2014) electronic performance support system, aimed at “increasing project, program, and user productivity.” Oracle has announced they will end support for UPK in 2022.

Epilogue Opus is a cloud-based Productivity Acceleration Platform that provides next generation performance support to organizations, helping them improve application adoption, reduce user onboarding time, and gain insight into user performance with utilization analytics.

For organizations considering how to prepare for the end of UPK support, Epilogue Opus provides a modern, cloud-based alternative with enhanced functionality. See how UPK stacks up to Opus below.
