Reviews (1-25 of 127)
- Oracle allows immediate integration of our financial data and allows us to compare cost performance with revenue.
- The cloud allows various views of the same data. Something extremely helpful for executives for different needs on what they want their final presentation to be. Some like spreadsheets with as much data as possible, and some like having everything tied into one 3-d graph. All these options are viable at the click of a button with Oracle's cloud.
- The best part about this product is accessibility. Having multiple job sites and multiple meetings can be cumbersome when you have executives constantly moving around. These programs allows access and presentation from a centralized format, something that can never be overlooked.
- This may be my own ignorance, but I've found that trying to teach less computer savvy people these programs is difficult. It's definitely a powerful program/storage solution, but we have yet to be able to integrate everyone as the interface seems like too much detail for them. So buyer beware.
- If I'm being honest, a large con for me was the cost. Our company pays a lot of money for these programs and luckily we utilize it but I would warn that anyone who embarks on this journey, truly use it to its capabilities, not just as a cloud based excel program.
- For my company specifically, The ROI module as become the least used tool we have. I wouldn't say there's anything too specific that turns us off of it, but we have other methods and these ROI calculations do not account for some of our contract styles, specifically PPPs.
- Quarterly updates are constantly expanding the feature set and usability of the application.
- Basic reporting information is easily attainable by business users without the interaction of technical resources.
- The availability of many products that can be added easily at a later time as the business expands.
- Usability of the security setups could be improved, modifying/updating security is cumbersome and often a large amount of trial and error.
- Response of support when the application causes a data problem/error is slow and often hesitant to implement a fix swiftly.
- The news feed layout that is becoming standard is very focused on HR and leaves Finance users behind in design. This is frustrating for those users as they must acclimate on design without substantial improvement in their main areas of work.
- Scalability from small business units to company-wide usage, cross country and languages.
- Very easy to integrate with other Oracle tools.
- Server up-time during set up has been an issue due to configuration problems.
- Reporting tools in-built are hard to use for first-time consultants such as when I first started as an Oracle Consultant.
- Oracle Financial Cloud is extremely good and covers most of the customer's requirement without doing much customization. This is also not a big learning curve from users coming from Oracle EBS. All AP, AR, and GL work great for most of the customers.
- I also started liking Procurement Cloud. It is coming up well.
- Project portfolio management is another area which is good with Oracle ERP Cloud.
- Oracle Order Management or Supply Chain Management has lots of improvement area. It does not do good integration APIs and also does not cover all the needed functionality.
- Procurement Cloud does not offer dynamic discounting.
- Oracle ERP cloud is a well integrated system for PPM, supply chain, procurement with AP and AR modules. Setup and maintenance acts as a one stop place for all our setup needs.
- BPM workflows are pretty cool when configured properly and the notifications are simply awesome and lets us set delegate options during vacation. Approval workflows with alerts on the dashboard and via email helps managers to keep on top of their approval workflows.
- Exception reports especially on the PPM module do not provide project details. This makes it difficult to troubleshoot issues at the project level
- OTBI custom role creation is highly cumbersome and is not user friendly. Granting users read only access is heavily implementer dependent rather than making IT self sufficient
- Some of the ESS jobs that end in error do not provide an option to attach error logs as attachment during notification
- Expense reporting is cumbersome without voice activation. But voice activation is costly.
- Automation of negotiated terms and pricing helps cut down the administrative overhead immensely.
- Introduces great scope of streamlining your procurement process since Oracle relies on industry best practices.
- Fairly flexible in terms of configuration. Since procurement processes change from company to company, it is great to have a product that has fair degree of flexibility in configuring the policies and approval.
- Reporting capabilities are virtually endless with really good data visualisation. What's more? You can have customised dashboards according to each user type.
- Decent change/version management while mantaining documents
- While reporting capabilities are good. Most of it comes from a custom report which are by no means easy to develop. The out of the box reports are not that good.
- If you do not really follow a very standard procurement process, it could be a problem because it could be tedious to change some behavior systems. Oracle does have a facility to log ER (Enhancement Request) but it takes them over a year(and sometimes more) with no guarantee that the feature will come in subsequent releases.
- Oracle Support is a nightmare to deal with. The customer care team is incompetent and even after multiple interventions by an Oracle Implementation Success Manager, you might not get a timely response at all.
- Financials: It allows our company's financial controllers to easily see snapshots of finances at various locations.
- Manufacturing: Work Orders are generated for our complex products which simplifies the supply chain process.
- Upgrades are frequent and tend to change major functionality resulting in users have to "re-learn" tasks.
- There are a lot of bugs since the product is relatively new.
- REST APIs
- GL Allocations
- OTBI Reporting
- User interface can "hang" since it's in a web browser
- Direct connectivity to SQL tables is not supported via an ODBC connection - Oracle Analytics Cloud is required for more advanced analysis
- Error messages are not always self-explanatory
It's great for a mid-size company whose employees consistently travel, or who host events.
- Migration of Oracle based product to the Cloud
- Simplification of Oracle access
- Marketing of capabilities - always appears to be catching up to Cloud leaders
- Orchestration of virtual appliances is not as robust as Cloud leaders
- Automated journal entries based on custom rules
- Excellent reporting and dashboards which business users can use without much technical knowledge
- Seamless Integration with other EBS and cloud modules
- The support can sometimes take a long time to resolve issues
- Oracle cloud modules are newer so extensive online reference like EBS is not available
- There is a learning curve to Oracle cloud as some control are different from EBS
- General ledger has nice dashboarding functions to allow management of approvals and pending journals
- Account monitor function is nice and allows monitoring of individual accounts or hierarchy values to derive p&l
- Dashboards and infolets are also very helpful in managing the entire AP process
- Performance is not up to industry par
- Applications are very buggy
- Patching is problematic and introduces new issues
- Features are current and efficient.
- The graphical interface is great.
- There is no lag while switching modules.
- The integration option to open source applications should be available.
- Support could be better.
- Oracle ERP Cloud (Finance) Module takes care of all financial transactions along with accounting.
- Oracle ERP Cloud helps in procure to pay and Order to Cash Cycles.
- Oracle ERP Cloud has OTBI (Oracle Transaction Business Intelligence) which functionality is very limited in terms of lookup use and could be enhanced.
- Oracle ERP Cloud support time needs to be improved.
- Enterprise-grade security...period. There is no worse casualty an organization can face other than data theft.
- Reasonably priced, so it does not empty the organization's budget. The price of Oracle ERP Cloud is lower than most of its competitors.
- Has plugins for all the major databases, making integration of Oracle ERP quick and easy.
- The user interface isn't necessarily friendly to newcomers. There is definitely a learning curve when it comes to getting used to where all the components and settings are.
- The stock modules provided may not appeal to all businesses. Our organization had to create custom modules to satisfy our business needs.
- Lacks localization features that cater to those outside of North America when it comes to legal and fiscal requirements.
- It can be adapted by business functions, and it integrates well with other systems applications.
- Maintenance is handled by Oracle, and the client company does not have to worry about upgrading them.
- It's accessible from anywhere.
- It lacks some functionality.
- Since there is scheduled maintenance, users have no control over when/whether to upgrade or not. And many times existing working functionality fails with the upgrades.
- It takes time to refresh test instances.
I would not recommend Oracle ERP Procurement for small organizations where the monthly procurement is less than $10,000.
- Easy maintenance.
- User-friendly product.
- Application that takes a long time to respond when there’s major issues.
- Support response time could be shorter.
- Support needs to more quickly understand how problems with ERP Cloud impact the business.
- Supply Planning and MRP: Its very easy for the users to use supply planning to procure material in the right quantities and in the correct time without spending a lot of time reviewing data to make decisions.
- The supplier collaboration is very good. Using the suppliers to act as an additional planning review step allows us to manage the overages and under ordering of material based on forecasts that our planners may miss.
- The requisition approval flow is very good after it is setup. This gives me the financial accumen to make decisions on spend and to also be able to review the spend in the OTBI to balance my budgets.
- The Oracle mobile procurement app is pretty poor. Its very slow, and instead of the punchout catalogs accessing the suppliers mobile page, it uses their full page and on mobile devices, makes it very hard to use.
- Demand planning connection to EDI data just became available in 19B and so we are dealing with un-scrubbed forecasts in our supply plan which is causing inventory issues. This should have been done earlier in the development process.
- The infolets are not really configurable and to gather KPIs through OTBI is very difficult, espically those that are cross functional in nature. Meaning, manage KPIs on invoices and POs, since they are in two different subject areas, we have to rely on outside assistance to build these reports. Surely there is a better way.
