I have worked with many businesses, from an Indian casino, Cable company, government insurance, trucking and transportation and 2 healthcare organizations. I found a real issue for assets when dealing with leases of shipping containers, it was not able to track at that level of detail. For the government insurance, it did not have the level of detail needed for the payments and group policies needed in accounts receivable. for the Indian tribe, it had issues separating the various businesses and using different models for accounting. Also, security was a huge issue to see overall numbers but not details among the businesses. So each type of product has different strengths and works as designed, but the customizations can cause issues when making the software fit the business. I know Oracle has recommended changing the business process, but that does not always work, going forward.

If business and financial consolidation is a problem for any organization, SAP would work very well to bring in consistency in processes and transparency in financials. The solution works well if the customization is kept to a minimal level and industry standard business processes are followed in an organization

Pros

Oracle Financials

  • HFM is a powerful tool that has the ability to (usually) quickly consolidate and organize large amounts of data from many different sites around the world.
  • HFM's ability to eliminate intercompany transactions is very helpful when a number of our business units buy and sell from one another frequently.
  • Although the mechanics and coding are far from intuitive, the ability to export large amounts of data using the Excel add-in Smart View significantly reduces the amount of time required for manually adjusting individual pieces of data within the HFM system.

SAP ERP

  • Integration of functions within the organization (example: warehouse releasing and inventory management with finance costing and logistics)
  • Security features are on point. Clear segregation of duties can be achieved by assigning access rights based on least privilege principle
  • Can be easily learned.
  • Roles assigned to users can be customized.

Cons

Oracle Financials

  • The Oracle Fixed Assets Module is not well suited to handle the unique demands of utility accounting.
  • Upgrades can be a large undertaking for both the technical team and users who will be testing. The magnitude depends on what automated testing is in place and the level of customization within the application.
  • As with most major software it is less problematic to be slightly behind the curve on any patching or overall product version. Bugs in newly released content are not uncommon.
Ryan Payne profile photo

SAP ERP

  • High cost of licensing, implementation & maintenance.
  • It gets complex when companies try to implement their existing business processes to Standard SAP provided business processes if it differs.
  • It is not for small/medium size businesses
  • The complete implementation process may take several years. Usually, companies take core modules of SAP ERP & implement those first.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Financials

It is an end-to-end application which provides a complete and robust solution. It is an enterprise solution that helps in smooth operations of the finance organization in the company. Oracle should also invest in an integrated treasury management solution. We are able to get complete information with details as required for decision making.

Main differentiator: extensive proven experience in different industries, robust solution that includes each functional area, SAP ERP is not only an accounting platform, it is also a business ecosystem. Extends its basic functionalities with products for the analysis of information such as SAP BW and now, SAP Analytics Cloud.

Return on Investment

Oracle Financials

  • The system allows for us to track and report our fiscal responsibilities to the taxpayers in an accurate and timely manner. I am involved in running the system not the purchase of the system so I do not know that financial investment that we have into it.

SAP ERP

  • The SAP implementation has consumed a lot more resources than had been originally forecast and has taken longer to complete. We have been doing mostly an in-house implementation, so some issues have come up that may have been solved more quickly with outside expertise.
  • SAP has allowed our company to have greater visibility and control over costs, both in administrative spending and production costs. We are primarily a manufacturing company, so keeping a close eye on manufacturing cost inputs and production cost variances has had a very positive impact on our organization.
  • Our bottom-line IT costs have skyrocketed with the implementation of SAP, but the payback to manufacturing efficiency has made the investment worth it.
