We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I have found the solutions best features to be financial procurement, inventory, and manufacturing."
"We did not have any problems with the scalability of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne."
"The interface is very user-friendly."
"The most valuable feature is the user experience, where you can create your own queries, it sends you alerts, and it's very flexible."
"It is highly configurable. You have a choice in terms of how you want to run it. You can run it in your own data center, in a private cloud, or in a public cloud. The choice is really up to the customer."
"The solution is very customizable according to business needs."
"The most valuable features are the financial-related capabilities."
"I like that one system covers everything."
"The solution has other core processes that can be implemented with customers according to their needs."
"The solution is good for small businesses."
"This software scales very well across various implementations."
"The most valuable feature is the integration between accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and budgeting."
"It can be an essential solution for those who can not just push to the cloud because they have critical data restrictions."
"I think one of the best use cases is centralizing supplier and customer data into our finance system. We identified there were so many duplicate suppliers and customers and so a lot of time was spent reporting."
"They have been improving it every day, but it could have more automation."
"The flexibility of workflows and multi-industry implementation support should be improved."
"I would like to see the HR features enhanced with respect to localization for South Africa and other countries."
"The solution could be easier to implement. However, the complexity was in our internal processes meeting our country's requirements. Every country has a slightly different process, taxation, and rules. That was the difficult part, not the solution itself. I expect our experience would have been more or less the same with any ERP, such as SAP, Navision, or Dynamics."
"We originally used EnterpriseOne for preventative maintenance, but it is not very good at that so we migrated to Maximo for that task."
"Financial side could be expanded by bringing in things like the IMS."
"It is difficult to get answers from technical support right away."
"In the future, Oracle E-Business Suite could improve by having a better UI. Competitors are providing much better interfaces."
"Earlier when our organization was small they chose Oracle because in the telecommunication industry everybody was using Oracle. Our company has grown to a size where our particularly billing phase has created some challenges and now we are looking at alternate solutions. There is not a billing engine or module that you can buy from Oracle that can be added to this EBS solution to fix our problem. They should add a billing module or engine to the solution."
"We don't like Oracle EBS because it is very old. Nowadays, all the systems are on the cloud and web-based. With Oracle EBS, you need a huge setup before installing it. You need a lot of servers. There are a lot of problems and bugs in the system. We have to move from Oracle EBS to another system. In terms of improvements, it can have better training for end users and better support."
"Administration takes some effort. Administrating the technology stack is not so complex but application aware database administration and following the new methodologies like online patching can be a little complex and time consuming. Oracle should ease the administrators jobs and do some innovation on this administration area as well. Oracle Autonomous Database is Oracle's leading technology these days. Using a similar approach, application stack may become a little more self-managing."
"There are some business-specific processes still not implemented."
"I would say the integration needs improvement. Oracle needs to work on the integration layer to make the solution much more robust and modern."
"Not user friendly."
"There is an annual license for this solution."
"It depends on the number of users and the modules that you want to buy. It is licensed on a perpetual license basis. You buy the license costs upfront, and then there is maintenance for support that you pay every year, which is typically about 20%."
"The licensing is for mid-market businesses, where it is cheaper than Oracle Cloud, EBS, or SAP."
"The price of the solution is not cheap. However, it is priced average amongst competitors."
"Oracle's licenses are not straightforward."
"The pricing of the solution is at about $700-$750 per year."
"This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP."
"Oracle prices are better in Vietnam and more flexible. If we need to customize something in Oracle, it's very flexible and easy to customize."
"The license is very expensive and I think that it needs to be cheaper to get a wider range of users or customers."
"At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years."
"Licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an initial cost, and the standard fee is 22% per year."
"The price of the solution is extremely high."
