For now I can not think of other areas that require improvement.,8,Agility in the financial process. Easy extraction of reports. Excellent management platform. Problems and slowness in connections, but nothing out of the ordinary.,Not a member of any user groups,Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle, MySQL and Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS),Symantec Endpoint Protection, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business (formerly Lync)Best tightly Integrated applications Suite in the marketOurs is a projects driven organization. We need an Enterprise software which has robust Projects Billing and Projects Costing modules. The software should be tightly integrated with other modules and scalable as our company is growing organically and inorganically. Further, all this should come at a reasonable price and there should be a vast pool of product experts readily available in the market . We evaluated several offerings in the market and chose Oracle eBusiness Suite. We are in the facilities management business. We have a variety of customers ranging from schools, hospitals, universities, to Big Technology companies. Each contract is different and has its own terms and conditions. Using Oracle Project Accounting, we automated costing and billing for each customer. Our finance team can track profitability of each project and report on it.,Oracle is constantly investing in enhancing user experience. This is helping our users use the software and get the most out of it. Oracle eBusiness Suite is secure and has robust controls with role-based access control. As our parent company is a listed company, this is very important to us. We could ensure we are SOX compliant using this software. Oracle has vast pool of applications which are tightly integrated. Whether you need an invoice imaging software or financial consolidation engine or business analytics application, Oracle has it. Further, all these applications are seamless and tightly integrated. Therefore, over the years we have implemented Oracle Time and Labour, Oracle Human Resources, Oracle Payroll, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Business Intelligence, etc. Oracle databases have online patching capability, which we can use to patch and maintain the systems with virtually zero down time. This way our users can use the system 24/7 across the globe.,There is scope for improvement on customer support. Sometimes enhancements take years to see the light of the day. Oracle has many useful features, however not many people know about them as customers are not educated and the information is not disseminated. The applications can be made simple and more intuitive. Some of the applications are complex.,10,We recently implemented Supplier Portal and Invoice Imaging Solution. This has reduced manual effort and increased speed and accuracy. There is no need for people to key in invoices manually now. Suppliers can flip a purchase order into invoice and Oracle will do all the validations and put the invoice on hold in case of any discrepancy. Suppliers are very happy with the supplier portal as they can track the entire lifecycle of the invoice online. With automation, we could bill all our customers on time. Oracle collects all the possible costs like payroll and expenses, adds markup, and bills our customers. We could track profitability and margins by project. The period close and reporting has become easier and faster with this software. 3 people can close the periods now as opposed to 10 before.,Not a member of any user groups,Coupa,Microsoft Power BI, Oracle Financials CloudGreat ERP SystemWe use Oracle eBusiness Suite for financials and supply chain support within our business.

It has streamlined the process from requisition to purchased product/service.,Not a member of any user groups,MySQL and Toad for OracleOracle eBusiness Suite - A Sensible Choice for SomeThe Oracle eBusiness Suite is used across many departments in our organization in the United States and Canada. We use many different modules of the application including Order Management, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Inventory, Supply Chain Management, Shipping, etc. It easily integrates with many other Oracle applications that we use as well such as SOA Suite, ATG Commerce, and Agile PLM.,I have a lot of experience using the Order Management module, and it can be as simple or complex as you need. There are workflows that can be customized too. There are many integrations possible with other applications. The more modules in the eBusiness Suite that you use, the more functionality you can expect out of it because it is designed for all of the moving parts to work together seamlessly.,The cost of implementing the eBusiness Suite can be substantial, and licensing / maintenance are on-going expenses which are not cheap either. Finding support staff who are knowledgeable is a challenge. There are so many moving parts of the eBusiness Suite that support personnel tend to have "specialties" within the application (i.e. Order Management or Receivables). And because of simple principle of supply and demand, worthwhile support people and companies demand a premium. Oracle patching and upgrades are very frequent which can be seen as good or bad, but it is time consuming to have to test so often.,8,The eBusiness Suite makes it easier for various departments to work together. Our IT department is lucky enough to have several people well-versed in the eBusiness Suite who can adequately support the product. Certain areas within the application can be overwhelming and seem unnecessarily complex to users who are not familiar with ERP systems.,PipelinePros,Oracle ERP Cloud,Oracle Agile PLM, SQL Developer, Microsoft Office 365,250,5,Order entry Inventory Financials,Sub-ledger accounting allows us to track purchases at a granular level iSupplier functionality allows our suppliers to enter shipment information without have internal access to our eBusiness Suite instance Customizations on various screens allow us to adapt the ways users interact,We are looking to expand on our demand planning to better forecast our inventory needs We are considering integrating with Oracle Analytics for advanced reporting needs,9Still kicking it old schoolOracle is currently being used in all departments with the exception of HR.

These products facilitate seamless integrated business processes across the departments, and offer visibility to the data, based on roles and responsibilities business teams had.,Our organization uses Financials products of Oracle EBS, so, it does well with simplified business processes with Accounts Payables and Accounts Receivables. The roles and responsibilities established for different business teams worked very well to enable the workflows between the different departments, eliminating manual processes they were using earlier. It does well with General Ledger process. The Opening and closing of the General Ledger periods is controlled by the Finance Leadership team and that ensured that communications happened across the departments properly. The GL batch processes are easily managed and scheduled to be run automatically for different general ledger periods, which eliminated manual batch job runs done earlier. The bank statements reconciliation process used by the Cash management team reduced many manual hours spent by them, as the system is able to provide the reconciliation statement generated frequently as per their schedule.,Enabling the built in integration process tools between iReceivables and other payment processing credit card payment companies would be helpful.,9,Overall it was a positive impact with good business ROI, especially in Accounts Payable / Receivables. A lot of manual data entry processes were eliminated as the applications were tightly integrated, which reduced the turnaround time. The negative impact was, the tab-driven screen navigation approach used in Accounts Payables was new to the business team and they had to spend more time in training in the beginning. Later, they got used to it.,Not a member of any user groups,Oracle RetailOracle eBusiness Suite insightIt is used for the entire procure-to-pay process across the organization.

Heavy customization done in my experience to integrate projects & tasks with services procurement module while creating requisitions. XML Gateway is a module which does not support any new business standard namely Rosettanet for importing or exporting XML data. The only option is to opt for SOA-BPEL where there is a cost involved.,8,Operational efficiency of our organization's P2P process has increased as the processes are streamlined by automating and integrating various business processes. Overall cost has reduced in terms of manual labor and effort involved in accomplishing the organizational needs like services and item procurement. Oracle eBusiness Suite does not have out-of-the-box solutions for all the business needs and hence we had to customize the existing suite to cater to the current business requirements involving additional cost and effort.,Atlanta Oracle Applications Users Group,Oracle JD Edwards World,Oracle Java SE, SQL Developer, Oracle BPEL Process ManagerOracle Technical ConsultantAll departments are using Oracle eBusiness Suite application, it's a very useful tool too enter day to day business transactions, automated process and provide reports for business users.

It is used by teams across several pillars of the business for a wide range of use cases. These include purchase and procurement planning, managing contracts, as well as time-based finance and budget tracking for every team. The biggest benefit of Oracle ERP is that it allows each team to manage and organise their own requirements in a self-service model.,Easy to use, with minimal training needed. Biggest strength is that each team can manage their own requirements because it is a self-service model. Consequently, this improves the bottom line and cuts down the need to have a comprehensive team for ERP.,It is really expensive! The EBS system is certainly not for everybody's pocket. Can get a bit laggy when trying to handle large files. Customisation of processes is lacking.,6,Our organisation primarily uses Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning cloud setup for the purpose of revenue management as well as purchase and procurement management. The largest tangible impact that using Oracle ERP has brought about is that it has independently empowered each individual team with the ability to manage, track, and account for their own processes and finances. This has distributed a massive workload that would otherwise have been heavily centralised.,Self-service has reduced dependencies on one team Each team has control over their own specific requirements - leading to faster processes Led to the development of a standard process across teams for procurements.,All India Oracle User GroupThe Oracle @ERPWe use Oracle eBusiness Suite across multiple departments.

Functionality - the breadth and depth of functionality available to be utilized is essential for an organization looking for a single system to consolidate their business functions Customizability - While this is strictly not one of the features supported by Oracle, the system does lend itself to customization and can greatly enhance usability,Reporting - Oracle needs to become better at reporting and using the latest trends for reporting using realtime analytics GUI - the user interface of Oracle (barring Cloud) is still Java based and cumbersome to use.,8,It has had a positive impact in that our business processes are now more structured, there is a robust SOP in place and processes are tracked and auditable.,Oracle Applications Users Group,Workday Financial Management,Microsoft 365 Business, MS SharePoint, Microsoft Power BI,500,20,General Ledger - We use GL across all our business functions as the consolidation hub for all accounting activites Payables - Our payables function is centralized and all outflow of money is handled through Oracle Payables Revenue - All revenue from all sources is recorded and consolidated within Oracle Receivables.

  • Ease of configuration.

  • Ease of process management
  • Ease for the user to understand.
  • Works on simpler equipment.
  • Because the application is working globally, it sometimes hangs and the connection is dropped.
  • It should have more shortcuts to make it easier to develop macros. I create many macros and use the "sendkeys" command in VBA, due to the lack of these shortcuts, it is not possible to automate the process.
  • For now I can not think of other areas that require improvement.
The Oracle scenario in the company where I work is very interesting for the financial processes because we can carry out launches, payments, make a note entry and perform inventory control.
The less appropriate scenario, I believe it is for the IT department because it is not necessary to use this system, otherwise, I believe that there is no inappropriate scenario.

Ours is a projects driven organization. We need an Enterprise software which has robust Projects Billing and Projects Costing modules. The software should be tightly integrated with other modules and scalable as our company is growing organically and inorganically. Further, all this should come at a reasonable price and there should be a vast pool of product experts readily available in the market . We evaluated several offerings in the market and chose Oracle eBusiness Suite.

We are in the facilities management business. We have a variety of customers ranging from schools, hospitals, universities, to Big Technology companies. Each contract is different and has its own terms and conditions. Using Oracle Project Accounting, we automated costing and billing for each customer.

  • Oracle has many useful features, however not many people know about them as customers are not educated and the information is not disseminated.
  • The applications can be made simple and more intuitive. Some of the applications are complex.
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.

Review: "Oracle eBusiness Suite is the perfect tool for your company!"

Oracle eBusiness Suite is currently being used by our organization to track requisitions, issue purchase orders, create positions within our Hunan Resources department, generate reports for various departments, and keep a record of all employee information. It’s also being used for some custom Human Resources information for awards and disciplinary issues.
  • It keeps a thorough database with a lot of information.
  • It communicates between various responsibilities.
  • Allows for report generation.
  • Has a steep learning curve.
  • The error codes are a bit ambiguous.
  • It's expensive to implement and maintain.
Oracle eBusiness Suite is perfectly suited for the larger corporations and companies that need to track information between departments. In my opinion, Oracle eBusiness Suite is not recommended for smaller businesses that cannot afford the steep implementation and database maintenance costs -- there are most likely more affordable or free options available for smaller businesses!

The Oracle eBusiness Suite is used across many departments in our organization in the United States and Canada. We use many different modules of the application including Order Management, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Inventory, Supply Chain Management, Shipping, etc. It easily integrates with many other Oracle applications that we use as well such as SOA Suite, ATG Commerce, and Agile PLM.
  • I have a lot of experience using the Order Management module, and it can be as simple or complex as you need. There are workflows that can be customized too.
  • There are many integrations possible with other applications.
  • The more modules in the eBusiness Suite that you use, the more functionality you can expect out of it because it is designed for all of the moving parts to work together seamlessly.
  • The cost of implementing the eBusiness Suite can be substantial, and licensing / maintenance are on-going expenses which are not cheap either.
  • Finding support staff who are knowledgeable is a challenge. There are so many moving parts of the eBusiness Suite that support personnel tend to have "specialties" within the application (i.e. Order Management or Receivables). And because of simple principle of supply and demand, worthwhile support people and companies demand a premium.
  • Oracle patching and upgrades are very frequent which can be seen as good or bad, but it is time consuming to have to test so often.
I would say the the eBusiness Suite is much more suited for large organizations. Although it can certainly be used by smaller companies, it would be overkill. Small companies can use business management software with a much smaller footprint and price tag.

If your company does not have a substantial budget available for on-going support and license fees, you should probably look elsewhere.

Oracle eBusiness Suite Review: "Still kicking it old school"

Oracle is currently being used in all departments with the exception of HR. This allows all our systems to flow together and work across the same information
  • Inventory Management- Specific subinventories and locations allows us to have better inventory control throughout our organization and between plants
  • Work order creation- Using ASCP we run our manufacturing plan daily and auto release our work orders to the floor. Oracle will also give recommendations when lead time is compressed etc.
  • Lot integrity- Running with full lot control allows us to pull product all the way back to the raw material lot used to produce the final product
  • interfacing with EDI
  • Handling item relationships while going through engineering changes. We constantly struggle when still shipping a customer item under the old internal item, while needing to see demand under the new internal item.
The fact that the on prem versions are still able to be customized is a major plus and also a reason that holds people back from moving on to the cloud. Not every business is the same and each person we talk to here complains about not being able to customize cloud version

Oracle eBusiness Suite allowed Sunflower Electric to eliminate many separate programs requiring integrations and bring those processes under a single ERP. All corporate functions run on Oracle.
  • Modules are made to work together seamlessly.
  • Oracle Support is always available if issues arise.
  • Products are universal in nature and flexible enough to fit many business models.
  • Faster release cycles to respond to today's business issues.
  • Enhancements to UI for increased user adoption.
Well suited to businesses that require the ability to see all of their business processes and results in one integrated platform.

Oracle eBusiness Suite Review: "Oracle EBS Cons and Pros"

Score 6 out of 10
Vetted Review

EBS is a very stable and reliable application suite.

It is used in the finance department for managing invoices and payments. Also, it is used in asset management and HR. The suite has multiple offerings and is perfect for medium to large enterprises. It provides high-efficiency by utilizing Oracle databases and a customizable back office.
  • Uses Oracle Databases with fast look-up and high reliability ( robust)
  • Contains several elements that can be used in different departments, such as HR, finance, logistics, procurement...
  • Flexibility in customizing to fit the exact needs of enterprise business units
  • EBS support is very effective. Most troubleshooting can be done by local admins due to its wide usage
  • GUI is not straightforward; not very user-friendly
  • High maintenance contract cost, which makes it not affordable for small companies
  • Deployment and customization requires a lot of effort and coordination between departments and the IT developers
EBS is recommended for large organizations with complex payroll and procurement rules and policies. Universities, banks and other enterprises with a large number of assets can benefit from EBS Enterprise Asset management application. Having EBS deployed might require hiring IT admins with Oracle DB and Solaris systems knowledge. This would be another high cost to consider in addition to the yearly maintenance contract.

I do not recommend choosing a different application suite for small businesses.

Oracle eBusiness Suite is being used by Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivables, iReceivables, General Ledger and Cash Management departments in the organization. These products facilitate seamless integrated business processes across the departments, and offer visibility to the data, based on roles and responsibilities business teams had.
  • Our organization uses Financials products of Oracle EBS, so, it does well with simplified business processes with Accounts Payables and Accounts Receivables. The roles and responsibilities established for different business teams worked very well to enable the workflows between the different departments, eliminating manual processes they were using earlier.
  • It does well with General Ledger process. The Opening and closing of the General Ledger periods is controlled by the Finance Leadership team and that ensured that communications happened across the departments properly. The GL batch processes are easily managed and scheduled to be run automatically for different general ledger periods, which eliminated manual batch job runs done earlier.
  • The bank statements reconciliation process used by the Cash management team reduced many manual hours spent by them, as the system is able to provide the reconciliation statement generated frequently as per their schedule.
  • Enabling the built in integration process tools between iReceivables and other payment processing credit card payment companies would be helpful.
Since our organization is currently using most of the applications falling under finance module of EBS, viz. Accounts Payables, Accounts Receivables, General Ledger, Cash Management, Payments and iReceivables, all of the business teams using these applications were tightly connected through the business process workflows in the system. Their roles and responsibilities set up in each application module help them to understand where the workflow process stayed, what the latest status is at any point of time, if any follow ups are needed, etc...

It is used for the entire procure-to-pay process across the organization. It addresses Procure-to-Pay and EAM process areas particularly.
  • In integration of external projects application with EBS
  • Maintain the various work orders in the organization warehouses and detail the shift hours of the warehouse workers
  • Oracle applications have helped in streamlining the SoW contract process of the service agreement
  • Repository Contracts - Large data files if uploaded to database will clog the database tables. It would be better to have a mechanism to store large files outside the database.
  • Services Procurement is not properly integrated to Projects and tasks. Heavy customization done in my experience to integrate projects & tasks with services procurement module while creating requisitions.
  • XML Gateway is a module which does not support any new business standard namely Rosettanet for importing or exporting XML data. The only option is to opt for SOA-BPEL where there is a cost involved.

Large business and global presence suits eBusiness Suite implementation. For Small businesses eBusiness Suite will be overkill. Also, when the system changes are too frequent like in the eCommerce business or portal management with frequent changes, eBusiness Suite is not the right fit.

In environments where different departments have different logical and physical locations and operations, eBusiness Suite is the best fit.

All departments are using Oracle eBusiness Suite application, it's a very useful tool too enter day to day business transactions, automated process and provide reports for business users. Our company uses manufacturing, financials, and service contracts and Oracle HRMS modules and most of them tightly integrated and avoid less of manual work for business users.
  • Easy to integrate with 3rd party applications and very easy to personalize the application.
  • Our organization uses various oracle module of Oracle EBS, all are very easy to use business processes and highly customizable as per business needs.
  • General Ledger chart of account, you can drill down the reports for each accounting segment.
  • On new enhancement Oracle support takes a very long time to fix.
  • When data grows huge, the application reports take a very long time to complete. Oracle should come up with tools or some process to improve the performance.
Very tightly integrated with all the Oracle application module, and fill gaps of process where manual and paper work has used.

Oracle eBusiness Suite is used across the enterprise for ERP and financials to run our manufacturing and service groups.
  • It took some training and time but it is well suited for our service business - both in-house repairs and field service. I look forward to eventually using the latest 12.2.8 version in the next few years.
  • It is well suited for our manufacturing sites to build products efficiently. Both in moving the product through the build, collecting data and costs on processes.
  • Sometimes there are error messages that have no meaning and do not point you to the real issue.
  • We are on an earlier version, so I look forward to our eventual upgrade to be able to use the newest features.
In the service business, we do not really use the true RMA. We have worked around it since it is required. It does a fine job of collecting the costs throughout our build processes.

EBS is our core financial system. It is used globally across all functions and geographies. We have GL, AP, AR, FA, CM, iExpense , AGIS modules
  • Data Security
  • Integrated data across the end to end process
  • Easy Extensibility through development
  • Easy Integration with different systems
  • User Interface needs to be upgraded to be more aligned with the newer Cloud software tools
  • Speed at which large datasets are processed needs to be improved
  • Real Time Data Analytics is a big hole in the available capabilities.
  • Supplier Marketplace capabilities are seriously underpowered
Core Financials Capabilities are very strong and well defined. More complex scenarios around Intercompany and Tax have proved to be a very difficult nut to crack.

Processing large data volumes within the Financial Modules has been surprisingly underpowered. Concurrent Programs seem to run for ever when volumes go up. And it’s not a relatively huge data set. (100K records or so)

User Interface needs to be upgraded

The Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning is set up on a cloud platform at our organisation. It is used by teams across several pillars of the business for a wide range of use cases. These include purchase and procurement planning, managing contracts, as well as time-based finance and budget tracking for every team. The biggest benefit of Oracle ERP is that it allows each team to manage and organise their own requirements in a self-service model.
  • Easy to use, with minimal training needed.
  • Biggest strength is that each team can manage their own requirements because it is a self-service model.
  • Consequently, this improves the bottom line and cuts down the need to have a comprehensive team for ERP.
  • It is really expensive! The EBS system is certainly not for everybody's pocket.
  • Can get a bit laggy when trying to handle large files.
  • Customisation of processes is lacking.
If you are considering switching to Oracle ERP, the first thing you must know is that it is not cheap. Not every business can afford it, especially the EBS package. Once you are past that hurdle, the next important thing to know is that customisation of processes can be a huge pain point while using Oracle ERP.
Lastly, if your organisation already has a comprehensive team to handle ERP tasks, then switching to Oracle ERP Cloud does not really make sense (unless you are prepared to lay off a large number of people).

We use Oracle eBusiness Suite across multiple departments. It is the central system that collects data from all business functions, consolidates the same and funnels accounting data to our reporting tool.
  • Auditing - the inbuilt checks and controls ensure that all critical activities are audit tracked and presentable to auditors for review.
  • Functionality - the breadth and depth of functionality available to be utilized is essential for an organization looking for a single system to consolidate their business functions
  • Customizability - While this is strictly not one of the features supported by Oracle, the system does lend itself to customization and can greatly enhance usability
  • Reporting - Oracle needs to become better at reporting and using the latest trends for reporting using realtime analytics
  • GUI - the user interface of Oracle (barring Cloud) is still Java based and cumbersome to use.
For medium to large organizations that do not have any ERP systems, Oracle would a good place to go for their ERP needs. However, if they already use an ERP system (either inbuilt or purchase of a built-for-purpose tool), then Oracle can seem too heavy for them. Further, for small organizations, Oracle might seem too cumbersome and might seem a more expensive option.

Oracle eBusiness Suite is the backend system running operations and finance. It manages the entire cycle from order to cash, procurement to pay and record to report for the organization. It connects with a lot of front ending custom web applications through a mix of web services and pl/sql API calls.
  • Financial transaction management
  • Order management flexibility
  • Workflow
  • Slow product development
  • Lack of innovation
  • Clunky UI
It is well suited for a traditional organization with manufacturing and distribution operations. The finance area is pretty strong and covers most industry used practices. The system is tried and tested and flexibility is better than most traditional packages to extend the system. Multiple options exist from hosting in the cloud to host on premise.

We use most of the features of Oracle Applications, and have integrated many 3rd party products as well, including Tax, Salesforce, Tibco, etc. It's a one stop shop for all our IT/Finance needs.

  • Manages all order management related activities.
  • Easy integration with all other tools
  • Oracle Incentive should be improved as more tools enter the market
  • CRM module should be rich, like Salesforce
  • Patching and other database maintenance should be easier
Its well suited for all the big organizations, however I don't recommend this to small companies, as the cost is huge and it requires a lot of maintenance too.

Used across the accounting and finance functions for daily control, interfacing from retail insurance systems and reporting into monthly head office reporting packages.
  • Intuitive user experience, great help available and can be added to for our processes.
  • Handles huge number of journal lines.
  • Quick and easy asset processes.
  • Reporting is not modern, comprehensive capabilities but difficult to write extended reports, must write and count every position across the page otherwise columns are mis-displayed.
  • User experience when uploading journals from spreadsheet is not good.
  • The way in which reports and other concurrent jobs from the job queue are accessed is not user friendly.
Will be great to use in small and large organisations. But users need training before using unsupervised.

Great functional capability and asset system is really flexible.

Ensuring consistency in naming of transactions and finding them is sometimes difficult.

Really easy to interface from external applications.

There is such a wide range of options to develope interfaces out to external applications it can be confusing to pick one.

It is used across the organization. It addresses the following problems: It takes care of procurement, helps in paying bills to suppliers in time, gets the approvals from the appropriate managers, manages cash flow, manages projects, and keeps employee records all in one place. Overall, it helps with asset management and expenses.
  • Workflow engine is pretty strong, which helps to get the approvals from right personnel
  • Entire P2P is very well integrated
  • We can keep and depreciate assets in one place
  • Simplify Receivables. It is way too complex, especially the Customer screen

eBS is being used by our Finance and Procurement departments to process financial transactions and as the source for our Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition management reporting tool. We also use it to interface into our DRM application and in conjunction with Hyperion Budgeting and Planning application to produce our financial statements.
  • Comprehensive modules for tracking regular GL transactions and sub-ledgers including fixed assets, employee expenses, P-card, and project costing.
  • Good interface with eBS with their 'Approval Management Engine' feature. Enables complex workflow.
  • Fairly stable
  • It takes 1.5 - 2 years for bugs to be worked out of upgrades and new releases. They should do more comprehensive testing prior to release.
  • Role-based access is clumsy and it is very difficult to identify/extract functionality/permissions provided by defined 'Responsibility'
  • Data loads take a very long time. Appear to be inefficiently architected.
Well-suited to large organizations with large volume of transactions. Not particularly well-suited to receivables for health-care organizations (admissions, discharges). Does not integrate particularly well with 3rd party applications for A/P invoice scanning and workflow.

It is being used across our entire organization, worldwide. It provides us with an integrated platform to handle financial transactions, manufacturing, shipping, demand management, and human resources. We have integrated it with our BI and GRCC systems (both ORACLE products). The software enables us to meet all of our business requirements on one platform.
  • It enables us to close our books in a timely and accurate manner during monthly, quarterly, and year-end closings
  • We can integrate our manufacturing operations with the financial components.
  • Mobile applications enable the factory operations to directly communicate with eBusiness Suite
  • The patching process never ends and takes a tremendous amount of time to perform testing. No matter how many patches we install, there is no end.
  • The forms are archaic technology and should not be in this product in this day and age. HTML is the way.
Well suited for very large companies (the on-premise version). I would not recommend the on-premise implementation for small or newly formed companies. It is too complex to manage and expensive to hire the people to maintain it. Most companies, once they start the E-Business Street route, never come off it. It is not a decision to be taken lightly.
