We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The product is quite flexible.The main reason for the ERP project was to bring together our fourteen sites, which had until then worked in separate silos.

Their great technical support is one of the most valuable features.The solution has other core processes that can be implemented with customers according to their needs.The order management is excellent.Great finance modules and customization.When correctly configured, this is a very stable solution. We have customers running their process automation manufacturing based off of this solution.This software scales very well across various implementations.EBS has lots of application families and lots of features. It is modular in deployment and flexible enough to let the customer increase the built-in capabilities and enable new applications when needed. These are very important things at hand in case there will be a need to expand the product capabilities and/or implement new projects.It provides a well-centered database that is feature rich.

Cons
The user interface can be improved. When you're clicking through the screens, there are some icons or symbols that really need updating and would be more useful and noticeable if they are aesthetically pleasing.The CRM was shaky and although this improves in Apps 10, there is room for improvement.

It should be made a little bit more user friendly. When I complete my implementation and hand it over to the clients or the person who will operate it on a day-to-day basis, they find it a little bit difficult because they are not from a highly qualified IT background. I want Oracle to make it a little bit more user friendly.It's difficult for some customers to understand in the beginning. A user really has to understand the processes.I would say the integration needs improvement. Oracle needs to work on the integration layer to make the solution much more robust and modern.Not user friendly.One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system.Administration takes some effort. Administrating the technology stack is not so complex but application aware database administration and following the new methodologies like online patching can be a little complex and time consuming. Oracle should ease the administrators jobs and do some innovation on this administration area as well. Oracle Autonomous Database is Oracle's leading technology these days. Using a similar approach, application stack may become a little more self-managing.The UI interface is not great.The user interface is not completely a web interface, it uses a lot of traffic which costs too much for a large number of users scattered throughout the country as they connect from their terminals to do their tasks.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
USD $100,000 annually.Licensing and costing of Oracle EBS is very complex. We recommend to use a system integrator during the negotiation process since Oracle sales representatives sometime do not know the actual minimum requirements and may oversell the necessary licenses through ignorance.At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years.In order to minimize the implementation and consultancy costs, business lines should have proper definitions. They need to have a proper way of retrieving their data, which should be structured well.Both the current projects and future projects should be defined well. Licensing should be done according to current and near future plans.The pricing is high.It costs too much.
