"Oracle E-Business Suite uses an old technology (Forms), which is Java-based.""One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system.""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 They should add a billing module or engine to the solution.""User interface is outdated and not user friendly.""They don't have built-in bank integrations, which would be very helpful.""We don't like Oracle EBS because it is very old.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.""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."

"Licensing and costing of Oracle EBS is very complex. We recommend to use a system integrator during the negotiation process since Oracle sales representatives sometime do not know the actual minimum requirements and may oversell the necessary licenses through ignorance.""Considering the market at the moment, Oracle needs to adjust the pricing of this solution.""The price would be better if it were lower.""Both the current projects and future projects should be defined well. Licensing should be done according to current and near future plans.""Oracle's licenses are not straightforward.""This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP.""Licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an initial cost, and the standard fee is 22% per year.""In order to minimize the implementation and consultancy costs, business lines should have proper definitions. They need to have a proper way of retrieving their data, which should be structured well."
