Overall Satisfaction with Oracle ERP Cloud

We are currently replacing all of our financial systems with Oracle, part of that will cause us to shift from the Clarity PPM tool to Oracle. There are 11 total entities that will migrate onto this new platform over the next several years we are leading the charge on the first company going live on this platform in early 2020.
  • Financial management will be significantly enhanced, today we are using multiple systems, reports, manually created Excel spreadsheets to track project financials, create invoices, etc. Moving to the Cloud is going to greatly enhance our analytics and reduce or eliminate manual redundancies
  • Leveraging work flow capacity for resource requests will also save us a lot of time and energy in trying to help the project managers find the correct resources managers and helping resource managers understand what their employee's capacity and skills are for the type of work.
  • Being able to assign resources to detailed tasks in the work plan but only have to submit time to a higher level parent task may not sound like a big deal but it's a game changer for us. this eliminates the need for us to track a more detailed plan outside of the tool, this will help project managers plan better and have more control over hours spent on certain tasks.
  • Change Orders, very hard to customize the field setting at all to help us capture data that is important to us, it will also be nice if it was integrated with the budget so it would be automatically updated.
  • Would be helpful if there was a feature that will allow us to send and track sign off requests for external clients through the tool, this is still something we need to do outside of the tool.
  • Ability to download into Microsoft Project and make your changes to your plan and then upload into Oracle.
This is going to eliminate a lot of redundancies we have in process and gaps in communication between departments. Having all of the financials in one place will make the project managers more effective at managing and controlling costs on the project. Today we have multiple sources of data that we are using to do this. tomorrow this is completely streamlined. We will eliminate a lot of waste, overhead, etc. I believe we have 9 financial systems that will be replaced by this one tool.
  • We are in the process of implementing but we already know we are going to eliminate 9 financial tools that are also being used to track and manage various components of cost, invoice, procurement, etc.
  • Project management overhead will be reduced by the elimination of administrative processes that are now going to be done and tracked by the tool.
  • Should also greatly simplify and improve our analytics.
Not yet, but I'm interested in Oracle user groups
Oracle is more user-friendly, out of the box reporting with Oracle is far superior. Configuration seems a lot easier and more intuitive. Easier to separate multiple entities versus having to share once space with multiple customers that have unique or different requirements on configuration.
  • Well suited for managing project financials and integrating other expenses such as hardware/software
  • Great tool for managing resources requests and assigning users to projects
  • Not currently as well suited for using to track and process change controls
