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.

  • 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...

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.

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

Good for anyone whose business is global. Its con is that it is expensive for small businesses.

Oracle eBusiness Suite Review: "Expensive, but might be worth the extra buck!"

Score 6 out of 10
Vetted Review

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).

Review: "Oracle eBusiness Suite - A Sensible Choice for Some"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

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: "The Oracle @ERP"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
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.
  • It tracks all the finance related activities, and creates balance sheets and other reports for leadership and investors
  • 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

Oracle eBusiness Suite: "Best tightly Integrated applications Suite in the market"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User

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. 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.
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.

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.

Oracle EBS was implemented as a full end-to-end solution across the enterprise. [It was used for] financials, payroll, and HR. It removed the issue of duplicate and disparate systems as well as providing a single point of entry.
  • Integration of modules allowing hire to fire process flow and approvals.
  • Allows customization to meet our specific business needs and not rely on Oracle to do coding.
  • Allows robust reporting with OBIEE integration.
  • Continued progress on integration of recruit & onboarding functions
  • Improvement of advanced benefit functions
  • Year-end W-2 creation and delivery

  • End to end connectivity between the modules
  • Some simple features that are critical do not come out of the box and you still need a developer or consultant
  • Some areas like FSG reporting, standard reports, and WebADI are pretty old technology that essentially require additional add-ons to be functional

Oracle EBS is very suitable for a company who is facing difficulty with a separated database, disorganized organization, lack of knowledge in business practice and having vision as a public listed company. Oracle EBS provides modular functions that a company can select which function they consider as top priority. Companies can choose to have Financial & SCM clouds as their back office, Salesforce.com for marketing and an on-premise solution for their manufacturing execution. Nevertheless, choosing the right product is always a good investment for the company
  • Modular based function, so we can choose to go basic for the first wave, or strike to the advanced function
  • Sarbanes-Oxley compliance
  • Server based application, hence every patch or update does not need updates on the client side.
  • Less investment for IT resources and availability in the market is larger than competitor. Since it used PL/SQL programming language.
  • Best of breed, since it combined advantages from products such as JDE, Peoplesoft, NetSuite, into Oracle EBS.
  • Since the release of Oracle Fusion Cloud, the level of Oracle support is degrading. In some cases local support works better than theirs.
  • Oracle EBS requires a stable network connection. It might not be an issue for developed countries, but will be for developing countries.
  • It needs additional products such as BI or Qlikview for Dashboard analysis. These features were supposed to be standard "C" level requirements.
Oracle EBS is suitable for a company replacing their old ERP or seeking for an advanced ERP replacing their spreadsheet. During implementation, it required high "commitment and compromises" between consultant and business user. Manage the management expectation, so the result will satisfy the company BOD. Since the licensing scheme is relatively expensive, you might to look at NetSuite, Acumatica or Dynamic AX, if your company transaction is not high

"Oracle eBusiness Suite Review"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Oracle is used by the whole organisation which consists of 40,000+ employees in over 42 countries. It is being used for HCM and financials. Because of the diverse parts of the business (different acquisitions), there is differing legislation and acquisition policy which means each country has a different setup/configuration. Payroll is only used for UK and US and the rest of world uses third-party providers with extracts from Oracle.
  • Legislative updates for payroll are regularly and quickly rolled out by Oracle to incorporate annual changes and are supported very well by Oracle.
  • Self-Service functions are very user friendly and can easily be personalized/customized to meet requirements.
  • Support is very good and bugs are fixed in a frequent and timely manner based on urgency.
  • Enhancement requests are never implemented from what I have experienced.
  • Error messages/codes are not always very meaningful.
  • Customizations are not supported.
For a business operating in many different business groups/countries it is very well suited due to the timely and frequent release of legislative updates to meet country-specific legislation.

Oracle eBusiness Suite: "Works well for organization with low employment turn-over rate and primary full time salary employees"

Our organization supports and maintains Oracle eBusiness Suite applications, databases and hardware. My external customer in HR department maintains HR records, assignment activities and performs payroll functions using eBusiness Suite. Oracle eBusiness Suite provides my customer a solution to address HR activities, job assignments, record keeping, bi-monthly payroll calculation and mandatory Federal & State reporting.
  • Oracle EBS HR/Payroll module is a timeline based application that allows retro entry and edits, it fits true HR department use cases.
  • Payroll functions are robust where it captures details for earning and deductions and offers flexibility of customizing how each earning and deduction should behave through formulas and rules.
  • Application interface design, I felt it was built from a technical perspective. Interface content should shift focus to user-friendly design where titles, options, and settings should be more intuitive.
Based off my experience of Oracle EBS HR/Payroll module, I believe it is well suited for an organization that has straightforward HR activities and HR payroll rules Oracle EBS would be ideal, for an organization with low employment turn-over rate and primarily full-time salaried position. It is less appropriate for an organization that has high turn-over rate and requires detailed work hour tracking or late entries. But maybe this is just the small scope of EBS that I have worked with and it may still work well in combination with other EBS modules.

Oracle eBusiness Suite Review: "Oracle E Business Suite is effective"

Score 7 out of 10

It has been our company ERP for the past 15 years. It is used for general accounting, payables, receivables, and POs.
  • Excellent reporting capabilities
  • Very stable system
  • User friendly
  • Not cloud based
  • Administration is complicated
  • Use of Java is problematic
It well suited for medium to large businesses. This is because it is more on the expensive side but it does compensate for that with functionality.

Review: "Oracle eBusiness suite a robust platform - even in the day and age of SaaS"

Score 8 out of 10

Oracle eBusiness Suite is a steady, configurable solution for organizations that seek a rock solid foundation for their Enterprise administration. It is a configurable, extensible solution. It can be used out of the box with minimal business rules up to highly extensible, customizations. For the latter the complexity can be supported with the many API-options as well as a flex-field structure. One can also leverage from a high potential of logging-facilities; however... the more you're logging... the more it will be of impact on performance. There's a benefit for those organizations that want extreme control over configuration compared to SaaS solutions nowadays. Another benefit is that something like General Ledger can remain the constant, reliable financials heart while seeking agility in other solutions.
  • Agile
  • Extensible
  • fit for purpose out of the box
  • Perfect sustainable financial heart in the midst of SaaS, PaaS agility
  • Room for improvement on APIs
  • Room for improvement in Enterprise Service Bus support

Well suited: out of the box configurable, extensible solutions

Less appreciated: room for improvement on API level
