We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like that one system covers everything.""EBS has lots of application families and lots of features. It is modular in deployment and flexible enough to let the customer increase the built-in capabilities and enable new applications when needed. These are very important things at hand in case there will be a need to expand the product capabilities and/or implement new projects.""The most valuable feature is the integration between accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and budgeting.""Everyone in the company is quite used to the Oracle functionality.""There is essentially one solution for every industry within Oracle — you won't require a third-party solution.""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.""It makes financial operations easier to perform.""This is a world-class application that includes a lot of business processes from other ERPs that Oracle has acquired."

"The main component is Oracle Financial. It is one of the most comprehensive financial solutions available on the market.""I find the most valuable feature for the solution to be the company is always evolving by making the product better with continual updates.""The solution is scalable and very stable. You don't need to worry about the underpinning infrastructure."

Cons
"Not user friendly.""It is difficult to get answers from technical support right away.""Areas for improvement would be that sometimes it's a bit rigid with customization and doesn't always facilitate region-specific requirements.""It should be made a little bit more user friendly. When I complete my implementation and hand it over to the clients or the person who will operate it on a day-to-day basis, they find it a little bit difficult because they are not from a highly qualified IT background. I want Oracle to make it a little bit more user friendly.""One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system.""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.""The user interface could be better. It's not good because they made their interface all in one, and my customers don't want to use it. I have to customize the interface and personalize it to hide some fields on the screen. It has lots of information on the screen, and the user can't easily navigate it. It's very difficult to use. I think that Oracle should have something like best practices. They need to provide some patches to simplify the interface based on the industry niche. Because now we see everything on the same screen, but the users don't need all that information. It's complicated to use for end-users, and we have to spend more time training them. In the next release, I think they should implement most of the features in the mobile app. It should be better. Oracle didn't update their mobile application for a very long time. Connecting the mobile application is complicated.""I would say the integration needs improvement. Oracle needs to work on the integration layer to make the solution much more robust and modern."

"The interface could be improved in future releases.""The initial setup can be somewhat complex.""The solution's new analytics information, dashboard, and flexibility of reporting could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "Both the current projects and future projects should be defined well. Licensing should be done according to current and near future plans."
  • "USD $100,000 annually."
  • "Considering the market at the moment, Oracle needs to adjust the pricing of this solution."
  • "This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP."
  • "The pricing of the solution is at about $700-$750 per year."
  • "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."
  • "At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years."

  • "The solution is expensive and there are some services that are extra costs."
