Oracle E-Business Suite Review
Administrators can apply patches on the fly with minimum downtime, however customization deployment is complex


Primary Use Case

EBS r12.2. can be used in energy industry to implement Purchasing,HR,Finance modules in it.

Improvements to My Organization

It was complex to follow HR processes, such as leave application, approvals, and job applications. Now, they are integrated and managed from only one screen.

Valuable Features

Online patching, which lets administrators apply patches on the fly and with minimum downtime to make it active.

Room for Improvement

Deployment of customization is complex, thus nobody is using it. Instead, we are deploying the same code on both filesystems (fs1, fs2). In order to follow standards, the deployment process should be as easy as before, in R12.1.

Use of Solution

More than five years.

Stability Issues

No, but you have to apply latest technology patches after base installation.

Scalability Issues

Yes, while using Shared Appl_top, you have to use NFS or related technology. But if your admin apps node fails, the second node cannot continue without the primary node. Manual interaction is required.

Customer Service and Technical Support

A seven out of 10.

Previous Solutions

No.

Initial Setup

It was easy.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Do not enable any module that you do not use. Check them and disable, if necessary.

Other Solutions Considered

No, decision was already made before the project.

Other Advice

If your requirement is not so complex, give a try. For smaller ERP solutions, Oracle EBS is a complex solution which has complex requirements.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner.
