As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

Oracle eBusiness Suite

If you are a small company, Oracle Fusion Cloud applications are better than Oracle eBusiness Suite. Oracle eBusiness Suite is more catered to large enterprises, who are not ready for the cloud and have stringent data security requirements. Oracle is offering Oracle eBusiness Suite on Cloud too, however, Oracle Fusion Cloud is built for the cloud, so it will be a better pick. Oracle eBusiness Suite has a strong financial modules pedigree. Salesforce may be a better pick, if you are looking for customer relationship management software.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

  • Support for doing business across various geographies - Oracle eBusiness Suite enables strong support for doing business internationally by providing multi-language and multi-currency features. Once a module is implemented, rolling it out to use in a new country/geography, in most cases, involves setup changes to translate messages and text in the new language. Currency conversion happens by default and can be linked to a third-party provider for up-to-date rates. For countries (e.g. Brazil) with specific regulatory and government reporting requirements, Oracle eBusiness Suite provides custom modules that can be used to achieve compliance with local laws and regulations.
  • Support for modules dealing with Financials - Oracle eBusiness Suite provides comprehensive support for financial transactions and reports for both Receivables and Payables. Within Receivables, support for various payment methods include credit card payments, ACH, invoice and cash. Pre-configured features allow integration with third-party payment processors that include leading financial institutions (Chase, BofA etc). Integration with new payment processors is well-defined with a list of steps that that need to be performed to achieve this. The eBusiness Suite also allows the organization to asses customers in terms of their financial health and manage risk accordingly.
  • Within Payables, abilities exist that allow the organization to manage suppliers, setup custom payment terms, manage purchase orders and match with receipt.
  • Similar to Receivables, payments can be made to suppliers/vendors using a variety of payment methods including credit cards, cash, ACH and other methods.
  • Strong cross-module integration - Oracle eBusiness Suite modules integrate very well with each other and can provide a top-bottom view of activity in an organization.
  • For an order placed by a customer, the flow looks like this: Online orders, via Oracle iStore, feed into Oracle Order Management (OM). OM is used by customer service representatives to track orders from the point of being booked to delivery. Manufacturing uses incoming orders to schedule work orders and updates the order status to reflect this. Shipping picks up the order when it is ready to ship and updates the order to reflect this. Finally, Accounts Receivable, invoices a customer when the delivery of an item is made at the customer location.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Support for mobile apps - The support for getting mobile-friendly information remains limited although Oracle is slowly releasing apps that address different modules. The released mobile apps address information availability in a piecemeal manner versus the integrated view that say, Oracle Order Management, provides on the desktop. Competitors (like SAP) have an dedicated mobile platform that offers users the ability to extend existing apps and even build custom apps that integrate into their ecosystem. In this day and age, the level of support for mobile applications from Oracle has a lot of room for improvement.
  • Heterogeneous technologies - The many modules with Oracle eBusiness Suite uses a mix of technologies ranging from PL/SQL to Forms to JSPs to SOA.
  • For an organization to effectively make use of the features offered and be able to customize it as per their needs, it will require the use of development staff that can work with all the different technologies that come with eBusiness Suite. While out-of-the-box integration id well engineered in Oracle, building custom integration points between different modules, particularly when it involves a new module versus a much older module (akin to a legacy system), requires the use of developers/analysts that need to workaround the intricacies of integrating legacy systems.
  • Support for user-requested features from Oracle Corp - In using the eBusiness Suite, Oracle offers a support plan that includes the ability for organizations to log change requests for new features that they would like to see in a particular module. While customization is an option that can be used to achieve desired functionality in the eBusiness Suite, Oracle does not support and/or offer development advice or custom functionality. The change request process can yield varying results possibly depending on how many users have requested a particular feature and how "critical" the feature is deemed to be based on Oracle's point of view. I general, the change request process (to add new features) appears to take time our organization has come to rely on customization as the primary manner in which new functionality within an eBusiness Suite module is achieved. I count this a weakness since this gives the impression that Oracle is less nimble in responding to changes in the eBusiness Suite.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

The performance of the product is very good. Given the transactional nature of the system one of the key focus areas for IT is to make sure performance is not affected for internal reasons. This can also depend on the server configuration and setup. For example, performance on Exadata machine is far superior to other Linux custom systems that companies choose to deploy. In general though, as already pointed out, the platform is now very stable and has few bugs. Whenever there are any issues, the cause is usually customizations that we have made to the platform, rather than out-of-the-box standard functionality.

In general, support has not been great - particularly standard (non premium) support . The main issue is that our IT staff has been using this platform for years and is very knowledgeable Whenever something goes wrong, we usually have a very precise idea of what the problem is. We are skilled at problem diagnosis. But the Oracle support process is very rigid and slow. Typically, we are required to go through a lengthy diagnosis process where they ask us multiple questions sometimes over several days and we are obliged to talk to different people with differing levels of knowledge. Since we already know what the problem is, we really just want a patch or a bug fix, but it takes days to get there instead of minutes. This can be very frustrating. This is a big part of the reason why we pay for premium support. But it's still a bit disappointing.

The key success factors for the implementation was project management, in-house expertise in IT and time. The implementation process started with the initial evaluation with the initial upgrade on a test system and mapping out the gaps and requirements. We did work with Oracle to understand the new functionality R12 had to offer and did another upgrade and researched solutions. With the use of software development cycle procedures there were conference room pilots with IT, business users. We then refined the project plan to the core key details, performed mock go-live implementations and finally upgraded the software.Overall, this was a very successful process.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
